Ippity Monday - New Season, New Wonder

Good morning! I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend.  The weather here on the east coast has been really crazy to say the least.  One day it is hot and humid with thunder storms and the next day the temperature drops and it is raw and rainy.  But on the bright side,  the cool weather is perfect for crafting.

The card I have to share with you today  uses one of the newest Ippity sets, New Season, New Wonder.

When I first saw this stamp set  and in particular the pear, I thought it would make a wonderful thank you card.  So when I needed a thank you note to send along with an order I decided to use the pear stamp from this set.  To start the card I used brown card stock from Memory Box and the Ippity gingham stamp with haystack Palette ink.  Then I stamped and embossed the pear  with clear embossing powder and  coca ink from Color Box.  The pear was then colored with shimmer paints in the colors of green, pink and a golden yellow.  It's hard to tell from the photo but the shimmer paint has a pretty shine to it.   I then used a scalloped circle punch for a border and some brown gingham ribbon.  I elected not to add a sentiment, since the pear stamp has thank you impressed on it.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy all the wonderful Ippity inspiration from today's hop.

Hi Susan,

I love your card with the pear! Very beautiful!
Thank you for your kind comment on my blog, as well.

Here in the South of Germany are only a few persons to fall ill with the e coli. The disease is mainly in the North of Germany. It's very sad.

The weather here is very summerlike and I enjoy every day. Most of all the weekends, to do handicraft.

Have a nice week!
