Ippity Stamps Sneak Peek: Day 3

Hi everyone! Ready for MORE?!? Today we are peeking 2 more sets, Where You Should Be (my personal favorite of the release) and Love in Return. Both sets SERIOUSLY ROCK!!

My card uses one of 7 stamps in the Where You Should Be. The leave branches in this set are AMAZING!

My card is a sympathy card. My dad lost his sister last week and I made this for him. He is a manly man if there ever was. NO FRILLS for him at all. I made this CAS and used this week's Fall To Layout 77. The pattern paper to the left is from Basic Grey Mellow. Simple black pearls adorn the leaves and a simple piece of 1/4" black grosgrain are all the embellies I used. The sentiment is from Ippity's Just Wanted to Say.

The card base is from a pack of note cards from Creative Cafe. The color worked for a masculine card and it has some ridged texture that gives it that something extra.

This next card also uses a leaf image from Where You Should Be. I used the CPS153 sketch for the layout and Nook and Pantry is the pattern paper. The sentiment is from Just Wanted to Say, I inked only the Thanks word on the stamp. The cute little brown pearls are from Zva Creative's Pearl Wheel.

There's something about this card that doesn't settle well with me, but after 2 days of fussing around -adding panels, taking away stuff, it is what it is -kwim?!?

BE SURE to check out the DTs amazing sneak peeks and we even have a couple Unity girls playing along too!
