Announcing the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog!

Welcome to the very first Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge!   The Serendipity Stamps design team invites you to play along with us using your own Serendipity Stamp Designs.  Twice a month we will provide a new challenge as well as inspiration from the design team.

The rules are simple...   play along  using at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your submission and link it below.   You don't have to have a blog to play along - you can link your designs to any on line gallery.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not display a Serendipity Stamps image.

One designer who knocks our socks off will be selected to display the Serendipity Stamps winner badge.  One lucky winner chosen randomly will receive a $20 discount code off their next Serendipity Stamps order.  Winners will be announced on December 19, 2012 when we post the new challenge

Are you ready to get started?  Challenge #1 is to create a project that contains a honeycomb/accordion element.  You can use a die by any manufacturer, but you must use a Serendipity Stamp or die image on your project. 
To make a honeycomb embellishment for your project simply cut out your die 10 times (more if you want it fuller) with a thinner paper (not heavy cardstock).  Fold all the cuts in half and assemble like a book. You can find a tutorial here.  You can use any brand of die - just be sure to include a Serendipity Stamp somewhere on your project.

Need some inspiration?  Here are some examples from our design team members.
