Some Ippity fun

Hi everyone!  I have a couple Ippity Stamps cards to share today.  You all remember I used to design for Ippity and also sold Ippity Stamps?  Well, even though I don't do either anymore doesn't mean I stopped loving me some Ippity.  I was totally excited to get my hands on some of the newest releases! My friend, JenMarie sells Ippity Stamps and she has great service, I highly recommend her!

First I have a card using the new set, Flowers+Friends=Priceless.  Love the whimsical flowers in this set.  I found this washi tape on clearance at my LSS from American Crafts and used that as a starting point for my color scheme.  I stamped the base flowers and colored them orange, then cut out the littler ones, colored them blue and added a small button to the center. 
 Next is a card using the set The Simple Things that I made for a magazine call awhile ago for a color challenge.  It was to use bright red, yellow and Christmas green.  Yeah, I really struggled with these colors, but I think using them with lots of white helped -lol!  I embossed the flowers with clear powder and hand drew the outline with a fine point black marker.  Needless to say, it didn't make the cut, but it is a cute and simple thank you card which are always nice to have on hand.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back Monday for my blog-a-versary giveaway!  I can't believe it's been 3 years.  whew!  I'll leave you with some close up pics.
