Welcome to the first H{ippity} Hop in the new year!

If you’re starting here, thank YOU! To catch ALL the great blogs in the hop today, find the addresses at the Ippity Blog and H{ippity} Hop along!

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!

WOW!!! Welcome to a new year, a new decade and a new card!

First, Happy New Year – guaranteed to bring new experiences and fun along the way I’m sure.

Second, Happy 2010 – a new decade! I’m ready, are you??

Third, the card! I couldn’t resist mixing some Ippity stamps with Unity stamps in this card. They go SO well together! Ippity has all the great Unity characteristics like red rubber mounted on cling, pre-cut images and exclusive designs! The images are made to work together or independently, offering you the ultimate in flexibility.

I hope you like it! Come back and visit as often as you’d like!
