Announcement!

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!!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I’m dedicating my posts and projects this month not only to the memory of my cherished Mother, but to support the Hope You Can Cling To card making campaign organized and hosted by Splitcoaststampers.

I’m extending a challenge to every card maker out there to participate along with me to go into a drawing to win 1 of 2 stamp sets that I’m giving away this month as BLOG CANDY!

Add a comment to ANY of my blog posts throughout the month of October with a LINK to a card that you made to send to the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center in support of HYCCT. I’ll keep track of the entries that you have and I’ll draw for 2 winners at the end of the month. If you use an Ippity stamp in your creation, you’ll receive 2 entries instead of 1 for that card! This is the Honor System here, so please create the NEW cards and actually send them to the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center.

What sets are they?

IPK-168 Courage is my Strength

IPK-155

Who knows, maybe I’ll throw in some other freebies throughout the month just to keep it fun for those who are just able to comment! I realize that everyone is very busy, so don’t feel bad if you’re unable to make cards for the cause. Join in and enjoy the beautiful art that we’ll see this month!

Any questions? Ask away and I’ll answer them as soon as I can. 

Here’s a card to get us started. I used the Courage is my Strength set which you can purchase from me directly or from the Unity Stamp Company website. Please please please indicate that I’m (Andrea Cloutier) your preferred Ippity Chick in the comments when placing your order. Thanks! 🙂

Welcome to the May {Ippity} Stamps Release Blog Hop with the {Ippity} Chicks!

Every 2nd Thursday of the month is the {Ippity} Stamps release day, so here we are for this month’s stamps which were created by Unity Artista Dana Carlson! We have 4 new Ippity Itty Bitties and 1 gorgeous medium set! I didn’t use them for this card, but you’ll be seeing plenty from me in the upcoming weeks! 🙂

I created a Free-standing Platform Card using a technique that I learned in Ellen Hutson’s class: Fold It Pop It Flip It Zip It using Ippity Itty Bitty -003 Sweet on You, IPK-142 Cuppy Cakes and IPK-143 How You Doin’ – they all coordinate so well!
