Chick Challenge Blog Hop - Day 4


Welcome to the Chick Picks Blog Hop, celebrating the official launch of our brand new challenge blog, Chick Challenges {with Ippity}! Chick Challenges was created by the Unity Endorsed Ippity Chicks to provide you with inspiring sketches, creative project ideas, and the chance to win some fabulous Ippity stamps!

Our blog hop will run from Oct. 1 to Oct. 5. Each day, we will feature 5 new Ippity Chicks and their projects. We will be sharing projects made using our favorite Ippity stamp sets. To sweeten the deal even more, Chick Challenges is giving away Ippity stamp sets to (2) lucky commenters!


To win, you must: 1) become a "follower" of the Chick Challenges blog (www.chickchallengeswithippity.blogspot.com); 2) visit each stop on the hop and leave a comment; and 3) come back to the Chick Challenges blog and tell us what YOUR favorite Ippity stamp set is. (You can view all of Ippity's stamp sets by clicking on the "catalog" tab at the top of the Chick Challenges blog.

To celebrate the launch of the sketch blog I made a Halloween card using the fun Halloween set,  That's Creepy.






To create the card  I used Ranger distress inks in the colors of yellow and orange to color the background of the sentiment.  The sentiment was then attached to a rosette that was layered on a scroll design made out of a Spellbinders Fancy Tags 3 die.  Papers from Martha Stewart were used for the background with the spider stamped multiple times on one of the paper panels. A few yellow and orange rhinestones were added to the candy corn paper to finish off the card.  I hope you are enjoying this weeks hop and hope you can join us each week for the sketch challenge.

Next on the blog hop list is Aletha Jane. For the complete list of blog participants click here.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Love all the sparkle on your card, Susan! The two-colored paper button is darling - very eye catching - and I really like the spider stamped multiple times without his little creepy string LOL Thanks for a great card share!
