Ippity Blog Hop - Quotes a'la HAPPY

Welcome!  Today I  have two cards to share with you that I made with the Ippity stamp set Quotes a'la HAPPY.  This is such a fun set with so many cute images and sentiments.  The first card I made uses the sun image and related sentiment.

I used Hero Hue markers to color the sun and then I cut it out using the Spellbinder's pinking circle dies.  The papers are also from Hero Arts which coordinate with the markers.  The ribbon was attached with  double sided tape. I  then added a few rhinestones to finish off the card.

My next card uses  what I call the love jar from this set.

This is actually  a mini card using the Ippity challenge colors for March of pink, green, yellow and  blue.  Aren't these pretty springtime colors?  I just love this color combination!  Again, I colored in the hearts with Hero Hue markers and used dotted paper from Papertrey Inc. I distressed the edges of the papers and applied white ink around the edges.  A few buttons, twine and a doily completed the card. 

To continue along the blog hop click here. I'm sure everyone has some wonderful projets to share with you today.  Thanks so much for stopping by and  enjoy the rest of the hop.
