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!!


I’m actually doing fairly well keeping up with the HYCCT challenges on Splitcoaststampers! I’m only missing yesterday and today! 

This card was created using the first Ippity set, IPK-100 Because of You. It is one of my favorites as it has quite a selection of stamps that stand alone or go together. Variety is the theme here. Love it!

IPK-100 Because of You

I’ve used the Chick Challenges sketch CC46 and the Play Date Cafe‘s color challenge PDCC152.

Don’t forget my first post this month about my special dedication and challenge to you!

I don’t have them in stock yet, so you can go to the Unity Store site and use me as your Ippity Chick, Andrea Cloutier.

For some inspiration, here’s a fun project using IPK-152, Make Your Mark, Clean & Simple Sketches FTL-180 AND the Play Date Cafe Challenge #121.

IPK-152 Make your Mark

I’ve had a lot of help from friends lately, so this card goes out to all of you! I loved using the Thankful for You set with the wonderful Play Date Cafe color challenge PDCC119 colors this week. So pretty!

IPS-149 Thankful for You

Thanks for stopping by today! This card was created using the Chick Challenge sketch CC18 🙂

Oh yes, the new Ippity release certainly is that…sweet! This new set called “New Season, New Wonder” has 6 pre-cut stamps, all in a fruit theme. The images have a distressed look with shadows in the realistic fruit shapes. Words hide in the shadows making the design look layered without any fancy techniques!

I’ve used the cherries for this card along with this week’s Mojo Monday sketch and Play Date Cafe’s color combo. I’ve managed to meet the Unity Tooty Fruity Challenge too! The Fruity challenge has another week to go, so pick up your set today and you’ll still have time to create something!

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!
