Hi everyone! The Ippity Stamps sneak peeks have begun!!
This is so exciting, Ippity releases 8 sets every 3 months and the time is HERE!! For those of you new to Ippity, it is a stamp line from Unity Stamping Co. The stamps are sold only by peeps like me, you won't find them at any online or brick and mortar store. Gals who sell Ippity are called "Ippity Chicks"! How fun is that?
Today the Design Team is peeking 2 sets, Moonbeams and Heart Strings and Fishy Philosophy. AND you can find set snippets on the Ippity blog!! My card use Moonbeams. You will love this one, it is a set of 8 stamps that are perfect for baby cards AND love cards -yep, both!! I stamped the stars/moon strings image and cut them out to dangle above the sentiment panel. I channeled Amy Sheffer again for her clever ribbon treatments! I had fun with my Spellbinder dies as you can tell -making the frames is kind of a pain, but worth it, don't cha think?!?
I just got a new pack of Core'dinations WhiteWash Collection, and I used the blue one for this card. Keep an eye out, I will be using this cardstock throughout my peeks!
I didn't have time to make a card with Fishy Philosophy, but as it turns out, I DO have something to share. I should preface this by stating the I HAVE BOYS. Not girls, nothing pink and frilly EVER goes on at this house, save my crafting area -LOL!
OK - So I sat down with Ryan (my 4yo) to make Valentines for his class. After HOURS (which felt like DAYS) of tantrums, we compromised to make a Valentine with an animal on the front and taping a piece of candy to it. Out of ALL my animal stamps (including Prehistoric Pals by SU!) he CHOSE THE FISH FROM FISHY PHILOSOPHY! LOL! Can't argue with his taste :-)He chose the colors and stamped them all himself (egads, don't look at my iron on the ground in the background). He punched the holes with the Crop-a-dile and taped the candy on all "by himself" (that's big around here). Then that was it -then he moved on to the Wii game!Here is the final bunch. I used the ticket corner punch at the top and added a small piece of ribbon. I REALLY WANTED TO DO MORE TO THESE! The crafter in me was horrified that they weren't cute enough, but the kids ARE 4 and these will get thrown away as soon as the candy gets ripped off them! LOL!
Anyway, these give you a peek 1 of the 2 fish images from the set!!
Be sure to check out the DTs amazing sneak peeks and we even have a couple Unity girls playing along too!
