Ippity Hop Monday - Challenge Cards

Today I have a couple of {ippity} challenge cards to share with you.  If you are new to {ippity}, here is the chart of the January challenges.  Feel free to play along and all you have to do is use {ippity} stamps.  You have until the end of the month to complete as many challenges as you would like for a chance to win  a wonderful prize of paper and stamps.  Click here for all the details.

First off is the card I made  for the red, white and blue challenge.




The sweet framed flower stamp is from the Cherish Your Dreams stamp kit.  This  set is probably my favorite {ippity} stamp set because  of  all the beautiful images in this set.  The sentiment I used is from the How You Doin' stamp set.  Hero Arts supplies were used  for the blue papers and coordinating ink and markers. All the red paper is from October Afternoon. A few pearls, a button and ribbon finished off the card.

My next card was made for the photo challenge.  



I used a variety of pattern papers similar to the designs in the photo to create this card.  The black and white papers  are from My Mind's Eye and  the red toile paper is from Making Memories.   This heart and sentiment stamp is from one of the original {ippity} stamp sets, Because of You.   Some gingham ribbon, a border punch and some heart pins completed the card.

The next blog on the list is Rona's.  She has some lovely projects for you today.   If you are interested in any of the {ippity} stamp sets, please visit my sales blog.  And one more thing, if you want to see some of the new products being introduced at CHA, check out this blog. I  just love seeing all the new products!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
