Monday H{ippity} Hop

Hi everyone! It's Monday and time for another H{ippity} Hop! Be sure to go to the {ippity} blog to see the master list.

My project is also for this week's H{ippity} Hop challenge from our gal, Kelly, which is to "resolve" to try something new. Could be a new technique, new stamping goodies, anything new to you!! Everyone is welcome to play, use keyword, IHHC4 when uploading to SCS.

I chose to use new goodies. This totally fun Bella Blvd paper, Honey I'm Home is new, the corduroy brad is new, and the Copic markers I used to color the tree the amazing heart tree image are new too! In fact, my mom & sister got me 22 COPIC MARKERS for Christmas! Oh yeah, Merry Christmas to me. :-)

Back to the cards, I am totally in need of thank you cards now, so I used the TY sentiment from {ippity} Stamps Just Wanted to Say. This first card is also for this week's Hope Stamps Eternal cupcake challenge #39! I took my inspiration from the brown cupcake icing and bright colors.

I punched squares from the various pattern papers in the pack and the 4th square are some Petal Pop flowers from the Tropical Mix.

My second card uses my current favorite image, the heart tree from {ippity}'s Straight from the Heart. **happy sigh** aren't those birdies the most?!? I colored them with copic markers and used the same Honey I'm Home paper pack.

Thanks for stopping by, be sure to check out the rest of the H{ippity} hop goodness!

Oh and just for fun, here is a picture of my newly stocked Copic Marker storage. **another happy sigh**

I also wanted to mention that I have put together some "cardmaking accessory kits" that can be purchased on my {ippity} sales blog with any of my {ippity} stamp sets, or even on their own. They are very affordable at $3 each, but are in limited quantity.
