FWF.....Life is not measured

Happy Friday everyone!  The card I have to share with you today uses one of the stamps from the {ippity} scrapbook kit, Love in Return.




To start the card,  I used sketch #140 from Clean and Simple. I love this dress form die from Sizzix and though it would work well with this stamp, "  Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but instead it is by the moments that take our breath away".  For supplies I used Bazzill card stock for the card base,  Lily Bee Design pattern paper  and some ruler ribbon. A touch of lace, some buttons and a flower finished off the card.

Here is the complete list of FWF participants.  I can't wait to see what everyone has made for today's hop!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Exciting Ippity News

Exciting changes are coming to {ippity} stamps.  In anticipation of all the changes, I have spent most of this week tweaking my sales blog.  In addition to making it neater, I have also added pages that list the stamps both alphabetically and by theme.  I am please to announce that  only 50 {ippity} chicks worldwide have been endorsed by the Unity Stamp Co. to sell this wonderful line of stamps and I am one of the 50... YEAH!  In addition, Unity has imposed strict price guidelines and  with you the customer in mind, I have elected to continue to discount the stamps off the MSRP. I am also pleased to announce that {ippity} will now have monthly releases....YES!  Here is a little sneak peek of the next release scheduled for June 5th.


This release will consist of 3 new stamp sets and  1  single stamp. Don't forget to mark June 5th on your calendar, I'm sure you won't be disappointed! 


Have a wonderful weekend,

FWF- Happy Mothers Day

    Today I have a card to share with you that I made for Mother's Day using the Unity stamp kit  A Mother's Love.

I started with pale blue card stock from Memory Box and used this colorful paper from K & Company called Sweet Nectar. The sentiment stamp was stamped with yellow ink then embossed with clear embossing powder to give it a little shine.  I then added three rows of scallops, an embossed center strip and a dimensional sticker from Anna Griffin.  I was really pleased with how the card turned out, I just hope my Mother likes it!  To see all the wonderful projects made  for today's hop click here.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Mother's Day.

April Ippity Challenges

Hello everyone!  There is no {ippity} hop this week so I thought I'd share one of the cards I made for the April Ippity challenges.  Today's card was made for the photo challenge.  Here is the photo,



and here is the card I made based on the photo.

I love the little dot background stamp from {ippity}, Dots For Sure,  so I began the card by stamping it  three colors, coral, yellow and pink. I picked out a background paper that coordinated with the photo and used ink colors that coordinated with the paper. Then I used the Spellbinders pennant dies to cut out the banner. Some little roses and ribbon completed the banner.  The sentiment used on the card is from Party Hat Wishes

I'm not sure when the blog hops will return, but in the meantime, if you need a little {ippity}  click here to view the complete collection.

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