No, I don't think that's the case, because you will enter from Macedonia and you will get regular Serbian stamp from border police and Kosovo stamp will just be ignored.
Problem would be if you would enter Central Serbia directly from Kosovo (because you theoretically already entered Serbia and don't have Serbian entry stamp), but even then, as I know, your Kosovo stamp would just be stamped over by Serbian one.
I hope everything will be fine.
I agree with Bogi Man, as far as I know the problem is entering from Kosovo
and you won't be so doing.
I would say though, in matters of border control, visa etc. situations change and it's best not to rely on forums for this advice, check the relevent embassy and authority to be 100% sure.
I'd certainly say if moving from Macedonia into Serbia there is no problem.
You are best checking such things with the local embassy rather than relying on our advice as we are not experts, it would be horrible if we were wrong so we can only offer opinion. AND such policies do change a it's a very sensitive political subject..
However in my opinion I don't think you have a problem, it's irrelevent that you have previouisly visited Kosovo, that is not the issue. As long as you arrive in Serbia from outside of Kosovo and get a Serbian entry stamp you concur with rules.
So far as I know, the issue is for folk that go into Kosovo from another country and then cross into Serbia, because you must have a Serbian entry stamp on entering Serbia the authorities view you as not having correct documentation if it's a KOsovo stamp, so far as they are concerned Kosovo is Serbia so why don't you have a Serbian entry stamp? It's complicated but that's the basic position as I understand it Travellers that have difficulties will be those that have been in Kosovo and trying to get into Serbia from Kosovo with no Serbian entry stamp.
Please do check this is correct from an authritatitive body, there is now a new government so things change, Kosovo is tricky..
Well last year was last year, I'd be very surprised if they are penalising everyone with a Kosovo stamp period. As per my post (and Bogi Man's) I think there is some misunderstanding of what they authoritoes are saying, I don't think that is it at all, it's only to do with the entry stamp at source.
I believe it's only an issue if you are in Kosovo trying to get into Serbia, it's about having a Serbian entry stamp rather than a Kosova stamp and then you could be refused entry. But yes, do double-check this at the embassy.
I agree with Stoofer, that you should check with the embassy.
Although I'm pretty sure that you'll have no problem whatsoever with old Kosovo stamps. For Serbian border authorities it will be like stamps from Oz, Lilliput or Gondor, so they will just ignore them and give you Serbian entry stamp.
But for that 1% of doubt be sure to check it nevertheless.

Skakavac, that would concur with my understanding of this situation in post 4 & 6:
> It's about having a Serbian entry stamp rather than a Kosovo stamp <
Yes Stooferuk, agreed. Remember, the guards at the border live for the moment to turn back those without a stamp. There are no exceptions.
