SSCB #47 - Backgrounds

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog! We love seeing what you make with your Serendipity Stamps and Dies. Once a month (we switched to the SECOND Wednesday of the month) we post a new challenge with a central theme. The design team provides samples for inspiration at the beginning, and then again at the half way point of the challenge (on the FOURTH Wednesday), but you get a whole month to join us!

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.

Our winner from the last challenge SSCB#46 Anything Goes is Kara Lynne from Kara Lynne's Card Designs - isn't it clever how she used the die for a stencil?  

The lucky winner of the $20 gift certificate is Becky Sennholtz!

Please contact Jeanne at for your prize.

Ready for our latest challenge?

SSCB#47 -  Backgrounds!  This week we're asking you to put away the patterned paper and create your own background.  There are so many popular techniques - watercolor, multiple stamped images, distress - the choice is yours - any theme - any occasion - just make sure you include at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your design!!

Our favorite design will receive our winner blog badge and one random winner of this challenge will receive a $20 discount off their next order from Serendipity Stamps.You have until midnight US Eastern Standard Time on October 5 to link your project. The winner and our next challenge will be posted on October 7.
