Unity has decided to not use Ippity Chicks to sell Ippity any longer, so once the stamps are marked "OUT OF STOCK", I won't be able to restock them. Thank you for your interest and purchases!!

Because of You

Welcome to February! Can you believe it?????

Love, romance, the color red —-> all remind you of February don’t they? Well, that is true for me also, but I also think of the beautiful weather here in Florida. It’s a great time of the year. Not a lot of humidity, cool nights and sunny days with not a lot of heat. That leads us to my card for today!

With Valentine’s Day coming up, I wanted to make a card for my Sweetie. I haven’t used the Because of You set much at all, but have been seeing many of the gorgeous cards by other Ippity Chicks using it.

Sooooo, guess where that led me??? To use that set to make my V-day card.

How’d I do it?

  1. Stamp the Love collage from the Because of You set twice in light pink ink right beside each other then stamp once in a darker shade of pink. You’ll have 3 images.
  2. Trim out any words from the darker pink version. Trim the lighter pink double-wide collage right to the edges of the images.
  3. Adhere the cut-out words on top of the double-wide. Adhere to a darker shade of pink mat.
  4. Adhere mat to card front.
  5. Trim piece of Dottie Ann Magic Mesh to about 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and adhere over right side of card front. Set aside.
  6. Stamp circle heart on light pink cardstock using dark pink ink.
  7. Using Nestabilities or punches, cut out circular image and mat onto dark pink scalloped edged circle.
  8. Stamp circle heart image again on light pink, this time using embossing ink. Sprinkle on Glue Powder, shake off excess, heat just until it turns shiny and sprinkle on glitter. Shake off any excess glitter. Very quickly heat image again to seal glitter into glue.
  9. Trim out heart and add to existing stamped image using foam squares.
  10. Adhere circular heart to card front, layering over all existing mats, etc., using foam squares. You are done!
