I would like to share a great project that a local charity does using Ippity Stamps. It’s called Tomorrow’s Rainbow and they do a lot of Thank You cards! The animals are so friendly and great to work with every day. There are 2 sets that are used in the cards, Simply Home and Alphabetically Adorable, which look wonderful in the rainbow colors.

Hello to Monday and this week’s hippity hoppers!

Have you ever layered ink colors on a card? It’s a neat technique that gives depth to your stamped images. You can stamp in a light and dark tone, 2 lights, 2 darks or even more than 2 ink colors! The possibilities are pretty open.

Think of all the colors that are in patterned papers today – like I have in my sample below. There are 3 colors: light blue, red and pink. I used 2 similar ink colors when stamping, one light and one dark. If you’re using this combination, the lighter color can be used as a shadow color, background or just as an accent. Open your mind, it really is fun and gets you using more ink pads that you may otherwise have sitting around!

Ranger has a great color strategy in their Adirondack colors. There are lights, brights and earth tones which all complement each other, especially if you want to stay with monochromatics. Fun indeed!

Hello Ippity Hop Hoppers! We’re closing out November and cruising into December. The New Year is coming right up! Wow, that was fast wasn’t it?

I’ve got a scrapbook page to share with you today for the hop. It’s sort of a tongue-in-cheek page, but I couldn’t resist scrapping this picture. A friend from Canada sent it to me because it was a bit bizarre.

A COW in middle of town!

What do you think was going through it’s head? Which way is home? Which street do I cross first? Where’s the feed store? Who knows, but it makes for a funny picture right?

I did a little masking on the journaling block for this week’s Unity Addict’s Challenge. It seemed fitting. 🙂

Hi Everyone! Happy 1st Friday in August! Although I did not attend CHA, I heard it was a blast – can’t wait to start seeing some of the new items in the stores, how about you?

Can you believe the SUMMER 2010 IPPITY release sneaks are coming??

Today’s card is a mix of Ippity and Unity – I just LOVE those little birdies!!! The coloring and mood of the card is for this week’s Unity Addict’s Challenge (UAC12). A fellow stamper just moved back to the state from a short term move for her husband’s work. It’s so good to have her back in the state and among our fellow stamping friends! She loves bright colors and glitter, so this card reflects her. I wanted her to feel special when she gets this card. 🙂
