Serendipity Stamps December Challenge: Easter and Valentine's Day

Just in time to make your Christmas wish list for Santa are Serendipity Stamps line of Easter and Valentine stamps. Today the design team will be previewing cards made with both holdiay themes.

My first card for Easter is made using cling set 567QCL titled "Faith is the Assurance" and can be found in the catalogue HERE. This was a very fun image to color. The inside sentiment reads: "Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. - Hebrews 11:1

Card Recipe:
Stamp: Serendipity Stamps 567QCL
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black and the image was colored with copic markers
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!
Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folder and fancy corner die, Martha Stewart border punch, grosgrain ribbon and pearls.

My Valentine card was a lot of fun to make and surprisingly (to me) simple to do. This cling set has two beautiful heart shape with words stamps in the set and you can find them in the Serendipity stamp catalogue HERE. If you would like to try this pretty heart shaped punched medalion on one of your cards you can find Becca Feeken's fabulous video directions/explanation of how to do it HERE. And below is a closeup of the heart shaped punched medalion:
