March Ippity Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Ippity Blog Hop for March. If you came here from Jen's blog , you are on the right track.   This month the chicks are shaking things up a bit.  To be eligible for the monthly stamp drawing you must first figure out a quote from one of the {ippity} stamp sets.  Each blog will have a highlighted word.  As you hop from blog to blog, write down the highlighted word and when you have compiled all the words in the quote, email Rona at  with the complete quote and your name will be entered into the drawing for {ippity} stamps.  For complete details and the list of blog participants click here.

I am so excited to share with you a few cards I made using the new stamp sets being released today. 

Isn't this a beautiful stamp? The stamp set used on this card is called Be Brave....Branch Out.   I thought  this stamp was so elegant that it would look pretty embossed.  I also dry  embossed the card base with an embossing folder that coordinated with the stamp. A matching bow completed this monochromatic card. 

Here is the next card I made.

I think this is just the most adorable  stamp set! This stamp set is named dream a little dream.  How perfect is this stamp set for a wedding, birthday or even Mother's Day?  I used a combination of watercolor and metallic paint to color the image.  A few blue rhinestones and a tulle bow completed the card.

Here are the other stamp sets that are being released today.

It's raining happy

And now for the word you need to complete the quote: 

Next up  on the hop is Lisa - Schnauz Scraps.

If  you're in the market for some {ippity} stamps, please check out my {ippity} blog or you can shop with me for both {ippity} and Unity stamps by clicking here.

Enjoy the rest of the hop and good luck solving the quote!

Really nice cards. The white embossing looks so elegant against the navy on the first card, and I love how you embossed the base too. Love the fancy cut of the second card and the great coloring. Just lovely!
