Ippity Stamps Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to {ippity} hop Monday.
My card today uses one of my favorite stamp sets, Because of You. 

Click to enlarge


I used the so in love  stamp from this set.  I wanted a circle sentiment for this card and this stamp was perfect.  The pretty papers  used  on this card are from the Queen Bee collection by Pink Paislee.  I love the papers in this collection and may have to buy another pack as a backup!  I also used a Tim Holtz On The Edge die.  I wasn't sure how I would like these dies, but they are easier to use than I thought they would be.  Instead of ribbon, I  used a little twine, which I liked better.  A Prima flower and and a dyed doily finished off the card.

Here is the stamp set used on the card:


This stamp set as well as all the other {ippity} stamp sets are available here.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and to continue along the hop click here. Enjoy the rest of the hop and have a wonderful day!

Oh this is such a sweet card! The papers are beautiful and that flower is so sweet!

I never even considered the "on the edge" dies...because I was thinking mini books, but it never occured to me that they would be a good size for cards!

Thanks for sharing!
