Ippity - New Release Day

It's the fifth of the month and time for the new releases. I really like both of the new sets but  I love the flowers in the Make Your Mark set.




Here are the details on the two sets: 
Make Your Mark contains 12 stamps and is under $17.00
Loads of Love contains 5 stamps and sells for under $6.00
Both sets are available  here on my {ippity} Stamps blog.

I made two cards using the Make Your Mark stamp set.



This was the first card I made using brown and oranges.  I wasn't sure if I liked it so I redid the card in purple and pink.



I couldn't decide which card I liked better so I decided to post both of the cards, since my son liked the brown card and I liked the purple card.   For both cards I used a Unity ledger stamp for the background.  The first card was stamped on stamping paper and colored with markers.  The purple card was stamped on watercolor paper and painted with watercolor paints.  I love the little honeycomb stamp  in this set and found it was perfect for making a scalloped border. 

I didn't have a chance to use the Loads of Love set, but I can see making a card with it and sending it to my son when he goes away to college.  I told him I was going to do that and he said "Mom, No!"  But I think once he's away for a while, he'll enjoy getting a little card in the mail that says " Sending you loads of  love".... at least I hope he will!

I hope you liked this month's releases as much as I did!  Have a good weekend and thanks for stopping by!
