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!!

Unity

Hello Friends! Thanks for coming by today!

I have a scrapbook layout to share with you. It combines a couple images from the recent Unity KOTM’s and Ippity rubber stamps. The layout sketch is from Nichol Magouirk’s Scrapbook Stamping February 2011 online class at Two Peas.

The snowflakes and title are stamped and embossed with white embossing powder that contains chunky silver glitter. The white border above the snowflakes is actually a wide piece of Sticky Tape that the embossing powder was sprinkled on and heat embossed. The little snowman is stamped and heat embossed in glitter black then paper pieced using white and polka dot cardstock. He came out SO cute!

Yea! A long weekend for me, how about you? It’s President’s Day on Monday and I’ll be crafting!!! Woohoo!

I have a rather simple card for you today created with blues and greens. The Periphery Collection from BasicGrey was always a favorite of mine, so I pulled it out for this card to meet a Color Throwdown challenge. This card would be easy to duplicate for a pretty gift set for someone or yourself!

Hello Friends!

Welcome to FWF with Unity Stamps! Yea, the weekend is here! Doing anything fun?

I have a double-sized Tri-Shutter Card for you today! I make cards for the people at work that have babies. Since there are about 25 of us in the department, the cards need to be large enough for that many people to sign.

I just happen to have a bunch of long paper, 5 1/2 x 25″, that I picked up at a stamp show knowing I would have a great cause to use it someday. Here we are and it’s PERFECT for this double card.

I followed the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers for a single Tri-Shutter Card and adapted it for my double one. I left a lot of empty room for the guys to sign, but did put some stamping in there for accenting.

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!
