Happy H{Ippity} Hop! Our First One Ever!!

Welcome to my blog which is participating in the First H{Ippity} Hop Blog Hop featuring none other than the new {Ippity} stamps.  We are so excited about getting to hop along to many blogs this and every week that are filled with {Ippity} creations! if you haven't done so already,  I hope that you will get some {Ippity} stamps and decide to hop along really soon.

 
If you are interested in purchasing the complete collection of {Ippity} stamps at a very low rate, then click HERE to check out my sales blog!  And be sure to check out my BLOG CANDY contest that is still going on too. The link for that will be at the bottom of this post!


For today's H{Ippity} Hop we are also starting a week long challenge.  The Challenge on the forum this week is SNOW.  Create a card or project including SNOW on it and upload it to the SCS Gallery using the keyword IHHC1 (Ippity Hippity Hop Challenge 1). 

Also include a link to your card on the {Ippity} Forum Challenge Thread and one lucky winner will receive an {Ippity} T shirt!!  Hope you will play along!

The {Ippity} DT members have made their cards already to give you some inspiration so be sure to check them out as you hop along!



The card that I created for this challenge uses the Christmas trees and the Peace sentiment from the Kissmas & Mistletoe {Ippity} stamp set.  The DP is from Webster's.  I paper pieced the trees and used gold embossing powder on both the trees and the sentiment.



My SNOW for the challenge comes in with the snowflake stamp from {Ippity's} Kissmas & Mistletoe set.  I stamped it in Winter Wonderland embossing powder. Then I also used tissue paper to create a snowy landscape.  (I will be sharing this technique in a tutorial in the near future!)


This snow technique is a fun way to create dimension and keep your card very light weight at the same time.  I added machine stitching for more detail on the snow!





Have a great time H{Ippity} hopping around today and please enjoy our first ever hop!  We hope to see your creations on our challenge  forum too!  Thanks for stopping by!
