Ippity Christmas in October Blog Hop


Good morning!  I hope you are enjoying today's blog hop and have come across some fabulous ideas for your holiday projects.   If you came here from Lisa's blog you are on the right track. 

For my project, I used Ippity stamps to create my gingerbread man card.

Music background stamp from Gingham Christmas Greetings



Holly sprig from Season of Joy


Snowflake and sentiment from Gingham Christmas Greetings

To begin the card I used the Tim Holtz Gingerbread Man die from Sizzix.  I've always loved this die, and since I bought it on sale last year after Christmas, I've waited a whole year to finally have the chance to use it!  The gingerbread man was cut out of kraft card stock and darkened with Ranger distress ink.  Stamps from Season of Joy and Gingham Christmas Greetings were used to decorate the card.  Some gingham ribbon, buttons and ric rac trim completed the card.



Next up on the  blog hop is Jennie.  To start at the beginning of the blog hop and view the complete list for the hop, please visit the hostess of this hop, Heather.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of the hop.
