Happy Thanksgiving!!!

If you are not sleepy from all that yummy turkey, we have a new Limelight Papercrafts sketch and product challenge for you play with today!

This week we are focusing on incorporating POLKA DOTS and using this sketch:

I LOVE Polka Dots!!!

I’m using THIS paper by Basic Grey and THIS paper by Cosmo Cricket.  I these paper packs.  The butterfly STAMP is by my fave company Unity and the sentiment is from the Happy Everything Unity set.  Hidden under it all is a gorgeous gray BLOOMER by Webster’s Pages.  The background polka dots are from a Cuttlebug Embossing folder.

11.17.2010 – {ippity} New Release Day 4

Day 4!!!

Here and Now
Gurnsey Gingham

The last two stamps sets have been shown on the Ippity Blog.  OMG… two more of my favorites!!!

Did you SEE the BIG news???  Our Fall 2010 Guest Designer was announced.  You all know and LOVE her already.  Angie Blom has agreed to stay on for another 3 months!!!  Woo Hoo!!! Just ♥♥♥ this girl!!!

First up today… Here and Now.

Of all the cards I made this week… this one is my favorite!!  I always seem to fall hard for the scrapbooking sets, but I LOVE to use them for cards.  I adore this ticket.  I can’t wait to use it over and over again.  I’m using THIS paper.

Yippee for Gurnsey Gingham.

Another one of my FAVORITES (told you I had many)… mainly because it is named after our very own talented and super sweet Maria.  Maria loves gingham and I think has been asking for a background stamp for at least 2 releases now.  Ha-ha.  It is perfect and I’m so happy they named it after her!  I am using it as the focus for this card with THIS paper.  The happy birthday is from How You Doin’ shown on Monday.

Tomorrow is our big release party and all the stamp sets will be available for purchase from all the ippity chicks!  Set your clocks for midnight CST and get your wish lists ready!!!

Want to win one the new releases???  Easy, just leave a comment on all of the design team’s blogs for a chance.  Then check out the Ippity Forum for all the challenges too!

Lisa H. is next!!!! 
Get ready to ooooh and aaaaaah!


11.15.2010 – {ippity} New Release Day 2 and Hippity Hop

Hello Day 2!!!

Cuppy Cakes
How You Doin’?

Did you see the stamp sets yet???
If not, head to the Ippity Blog to see them and start at the beginning of the hop.

It is also Hippity Hop day.  Once you finish the DT hop, you must visit our ippity peeps too!  Lots of fabulous project to see today.  Eryn has challenged us to create mini cards for this week’s challenge (IHHC50).  So, I decided to do all mini cards today.

First up, lets see Cuppy Cakes in action.

How cuppy cute is this???  Not just one but TWO birthday friendly stamp sets this release.  Aren’t these cupcakes yummy?  I did some paper piecing on mine with THIS paper.  I haven’t quite mastered Copic Markers to do full colored images, but I do love to use them to create a little highlighting.

Next up, some mini How You Doin’?

This stamp set is just TOO TOO cute!!!  Love all the itty bitty images.  This is another favorite of mine.  I love the variety of sayings and the adorable little images.  Just want to pinch these little cuties.

Are you ready for the fabulous projects Lisa H. has in store for you???  Off you go!


11.14.2010 – {ippity} New Release Peek Day 1

Oh yeah, let the FUN begin!!!

Today, we start peeking at the new stamps that will be available from {ippity} chicks starting Thursday!  If you haven’t seen all the new release happenings, make sure you head to the Ippity blog.

Back to the hoppin’… By now, you have seen which stamp sets we are showing you today on the {ippity blog} and some fabulous samples.  I’m SO excited to be apart of this talented team.  I truly ♥ this release!!!

These SETS are two of my FAVORITES from the bunch!!!

Sing a New Song
Party Hat Wishes

Pssst…  I have a little secret.  I have many favorites this release.  ha-ha!

We have been asking for an awesome birthday set and {ippity} has DELIVERED BIG TIME this release!!!

How original and fabulous is the Party Hat Wishes set???  I love the “eye” chart stamp.  It will be perfect for male or female themed cards!  Absolutely love this set!!!  I’m using THIS patterned paper which makes this a perfect male card!

Up next, my FAVORITE bird stamp this release.

I ♥ Sing a New Song.  This birdie is my absolute fave and I can’t wait to break out this set again and again.  This card reminds me of our fabulous DT girl Eva.  I’m channeling her style a little.  She shared how she does that awesome little border I added to the background label HERE.  All you need are some of those cheap decorative scissors that never see the light of day.  Oh yeah, you know you have some.

Lisa H. is up next with some more fabulous projects to share!!!!

Don’t forget to leave a comment on all the DT blogs… you might just win a new release set!!!

Happy Friends with Flair day!!!  Aka… FRIDAY!!!

I’m so happy it is Friday and I get to spend it with my Unity peeps!!!

Playing with some Ippity stamp sets that really needed some love: Devoted and Bitty Pixie Paisley.

Oh, where to start with this card… so much going on! I used some Shimmerz Vibez to create the background shimmery pattern. I sprayed it over a mask created with the Chinese Knot Chain punch by EK Success. THIS is the patterned paper I used and THESE rhinestones.

The paper I am loving right now is by Basic Grey.  I’m using the Oliver and Pyrus paper pads for this card.  I’m on a masculine card kick lately and can’t seem to put these paper pads away.  Plus, I used THIS awesome label for the sentiment by Unity stamp set.
