Hippity Hop Monday - Memorial Day

First, let us remember and be grateful to all those who sacrifice everything for our freedom....

On a lighter note, here's the birthday card I made for a friend who loves "Music of my Heart" but just won't buy it because she already has so many bird stamps!  She also wants "Fishy Philosophy" so that is my birthday present to her along with this card:-)

As you can see, I used the fantastic Ippity papers with some dollar store grosgain ribbon.  The stamps are from "Music of My Heart," and "Life's Little Moments."  I love them both!!  Hopefully, she will like this little bird - she can reuse it also because it just dawned on me that I sealed the envelope without signing the card. Oh well, an extra gift....

In retrospect, it has been one year since I discovered the wonderful world of stamping and blogging about stamping and Unity stamps.  My friend works right outside my office and happens to have been a avid stamper for the past 23 years.  We love to talk about stamping and show each other our ideas and creations.

I love sharing my stamping passion with her because it is her passion too!

Happy Birthday!

Stay safe everyone!!

Hippity Hop Monday!

Well, it is Monday again!  I've got a couple of cards here - I'm not thrilled with them but I love the paper and the stamps....this first one looks great with the flower and the border punch but, upon reflection, I think it was crying out for stitching.  I love these new Ippity papers and these stamps from "Now and Always," and "Fall for You."

The next card didn't look like I pictured it in my head but it's too late now"-)  I love that chandelier from "Regal Greetings."  It is gorgeous and elegant.  The chair is from Unity's "Comfy Cozy," and it is adorable!  The other stamps are from "Fall for You," as is the patterned paper.

Sometimes, our ideas don't quite work but we still can't abandon them!  Have a great Monday and visit all the other bloghoppers today.  Here's the list!

Remember to get your Ippity here!!

Hippity Hop!!!

I hope you enjoyed the unveiling last week - the new Ippity stamps and papers are fabulous!!!

I haven't had a chance to do much creating but I did promise myself I would use each and every stamp of the new release.  Here's an example of how if did it - more pages for my catalog!!  Of course, as usual, excuse these night pictures - I just haven't made it home in time for daylight:-)

Enjoy and join the blog hop here!

New Ippity Release Day!!!!!!!!!

I hope you are enjoying all the creations for the fabulously talented Ippity chicks today....I have only a couple of creations to show - I used all Ippity papers from the new paper pack that I love love love...

I also updated my catalog and I'll have it for FWF tomorrow!  The kits for sale and their Paypal buttons  are over on the sidebar.

I used stamps from several sets for these cards - first is my favorite saying of all time "Not all those who wander are lost."  I used to have t-shirt that said that and I loved it.  I didn't realize it was from JRR Tolkien but after seeing all three Lord of the Rings movies, I understand it - those people just seemed like they were constantly walking for the entire three hours!  I take it to mean that we don't have to focus on one thing but that we can find happiness just wandering, perhaps off the beaten path, and being ourselves, without the pressure to conform to what others may be doing.

This card uses stamps from three different sets - "A Moment in Time," "Delightful Little Things," and "Fall for You." The photo probably would have been better if I'd made it home from work in time to make it and photograph it in daylight, though:-)

I love the way the second card came out - it almost looks like an imitation of some of the DT creations:-) I love that flower and the paper is divine.  I used four new sets here - "Season of Joy" for the Nestie-like shape that I stamped with "A Bit of Burlap" before I stamped a sentiment from "Faith Blooms," and added a flower from "Now and Always."

I love all the new sets and can't wait to share them with you all!!

I hope you enjoy all the creations you see today and please stop back and purchase some Ippity here!  If you buy two sets today, I'll throw in the new "Books a Flutter" set as a bonus.

Thanks for looking and have fun on the hop!

Hippity Hop!!!

It's almost here!  The big Ippity release's hard to believe that we're already working on our third "season" of stamp goodness!   I wanted to showcase some of the stamp sets we have available right now - just because we're getting the new sets doesn't mean the others are going away.  In fact, all the sets complement each other and they are all fabulous.  I can't show you any of my creations from the new release so here are some catalog pages showing the first two releases... to showcase the stamps and the fabulous papers.  This is "Moonbeams and Heartstrings," a great set.

Next is "Music of the Heart."  Seriously, how can a stamper live without a sheet music background stamp?  It is so versatile.

And, of course, the beautiful "Because of You" set.

And, remember that there are already 16 great sets to choose from.  Wait till you see the new releases.  They are truly fabulous!

Check out all the other Hippity Hoppers here!  And, get your Ippity here!

TGIF and welcome to Unity's FWF.  I'm sharing one card I just made with fabulous stamps from "Remember Happiness."  I think this is one of my favorite sets!  And, these papers go perfectly - the sentiment is wonderful and something we all need to remember.

Next, I've got my Ippity sets and they're ready to go out the day of the release party!  I have inked every image and I am already inspired.  I'll be running a release special so remember to check back and get your Ippity here!  Here's some other samples from my Ippity catalog to show how great the current sets are:-)  And, the paper packs are amazing!!!

Have a great day everyone and I think I'll see you on Monday!!  Check out the other bloghoppers here....

Hippity Hop

Happy Monday All!! I can't believe it's May already, especially since I didn't get my April Christmas Card Challenge cards uploaded by the end of the month.  It is amazing how time is flying!

Here are a couple of cards I made this weekend - although the horse stamps are from another company, the other stamps and some of the papers are from Ippity.  I love Ippity but I do have a horse lover in my family and I had to break down and purchase some other stamps.  They are lovely and do blend well with our Ippity products:-)

Enjoy your Monday and remember that in 10 days we will have a whole new line of Ippity here!!!  The excitement continues and I can't wait for the unveiling!!!  I know you will all love the new sets!
