Hopping With A Puzzle & Shaker

Hello and welcome to the April Serendipity Stamps  Blog Hop.
I am excited to share my shaker card and anther Puzzle! I have made so many and the kids take them home as fast as I make them. 


I love the way this one turned out. I used Memento felt pens on my stamp then spritzed a bit  of water on the stamp to soften the image. I also used the negative of the Stitched Duo 3 from PPP sold at Serendipity Stamps, for my window.



This puzzle is so fun and easy to make. I place the dies on the fun foam, cut it, then glue stamped card stock images over the cut out foam pieces.  I adhere with glue, a piece of card stock to the back of the foam and that's it!  Its fun for the kids because the pieces push in so nicely. Makes for a great card too. Just send it in one of the clear B59-A9 Envelope from Serendipity Stamps .
