Hi there hoppers and blog visitors!

Welcome to Friday on a long weekend, yea!!!

I’ve got another Clean & Simple (CAS) card for you. Some single color stamping with gray and coloring with tan and blue glitter gel pens, ribbon and done! I used this week’s Play Date Cafe colors (blue, gray and tan) which worked out just fine with Ms. Peacock!

Howdy Hoppers! So glad you made it to my blog today!

Happy New Year!

Layering was the name of the game when making this card. This week’s Mojo Monday sketch was terrific for this image and sentiment. Gotta love that kiwi, kraft and black color combo!

The main house image was from the January 2009 Kit of the Month at Unity Stamps. The image is a great size with a nice amount of open area for coloring. I chose to leave mine just plain with no coloring, nice and simple.

The sentiment is from one of my favorite Ippity sets, IPK-143 How You Doin’. That set is just FABULOUS! So many cute sayings and images – great for accenting or making your own background paper!

Hey, this is the last Hippity Hop for 2010!! Thanks for coming by to see it!!

I’ve got a tall card for you today! I missed this CPS sketch when it came out, so I took this opportunity to use it this week! Also, the Play Date Cafe had a great color combo that I really wanted to try out. 🙂

I made my own background paper then distressed the edges with a neutral beige ink. I then went back over the pattern and colored in the centers on the background paper using the dye ink pad and a water brush. Basically, take the water brush and touch it to the ink pad. Ink will transfer to the moist brush which then can be used to paint whatever you want to on the stamped design.

I also spritzed the large flower with a Pearlized Mist that I created myself. See my custom recipes at this post. Click the picture for a larger version.

Oh my gosh, how special to have a hop on Christmas Eve!!

You’re going to laugh, but I didn’t do a Christmas or Winter themed card. I did a birthday one instead!

I had fun with watercolors on this one. Actually with Watercolor Crayons – ever use those? Lots of wonderful color blending so well on watercolor paper! I used a super cute image from the October 2008 KOTM (the flowers in the center) which just happens to be on sale right now!! I included some Ippity stamps on the card too, can you find them? They are in the flower 1/2 circle and the saying in the oval! Both are from the IPK-143 How You Doin’? set – love it! And it matches so well to the October 2008 KOTM!

To add to the charm, I used one of my own recipes of Pearlized Mists using a Distress Reinker, Perfect Pearls and water. It’s such a great sparkle without overpowering the colored image.

Hope you like it!
