The Twinery / Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop is not your imagination!  LOL

I am back once again with another fabby blog hop with my team over at
The Twinery as we team up with the designer from Serendipity Stamps.

Our team were given the option to work with 
Serendipity's stamps and dies
and I chose to work with a beautiful Lighthouse Die & Stamp Set

I love using baker's twine to create landscape and that's exactly what I did for
both of today's projects.  For this one, I wanted to create the varied colors of the sea,


It's so easy...just run your tape roller in a wavy line and simply layer the twine
row by row. 
To create the sun, I rolled Marigold & Buttercream in a circle of tape

For the next project, I wanted to create a sandy beach landscape
so I layered Cappuccino & Stone baker's twine.

I've always found lighthouses to be a source of hope as the beacon
shines for miles.  

During this three-day blog hop, there are some pretty fabby prizes
available to two lucky winners.

Great cards. I love how you used the twine to make the ground and the water to ground the lighthouse.
The sun is pretty. I hadn't seen the lighthouse before. I'll be getting it.
