Bling it On Hippity Hop!

I am happy to say that I after my all day class yesterday, I am an official Copics Certified Instructor!!  I have some stuff to share with you about that, but it will have to wait for tomorrow!!

Today we have a H{ippity} Hop to blog about!!
Bling it on Baby!!


It's Monday and that means that is time for another H{ippity} Hop!!  My post today is going to show you how useful {ippity} stamps can be to bring some bling into your life and into your home!!  Eryn has challenged us to add bling to our {ippity} projects and I have an example of what I did with the Devoted stamp set, a candle and rhinestones!!

 
Isn't that pretty!!  It looks like it came from a store, but you can make it yourself right at home!  If you would like to participate in this week's H{ippity} Hop challenge, all you need to do is create a project using {ippity} stamps and some bling and upload it to the SCS Gallery using the keyword IHHC6.  Then go to thread on the {ippity} forum for this week's challenge and leave a reply with a link to your Gallery showing your project so we can all take a look and ooh and aah over it!! Sound like fun???  It is!!  I hope you join us!



I really love this technique of stamping on candles and it is so easy to do.  Here is a link to the resource showing the tutorial on how to do it at SCS.  You aren't actually stamping directly on the stamp, you are stamping onto tissue paper (like you wrap presents with) and then melting it into the candle just until the paper disappears from view.


Here is a closeup of the stamped sentiment from Devoted.  I also added the hearts from the same set to wrap around the candle.  The bling is from Walmart called Best Occasions and came in a packet with many swirls and flourishes!

So today we have a lot of {ippity} blogs to visit that will be showcasing these fabulous stamps.  And the DT will be sure to have brought some more bling for you to see too!  We sure hope you will hop along with us today.  

To start at the beginning of the H{ippity} Hop, please go to the {ippity} Blog to find the list.


If you are interested in purchasing the Devoted stamp set you see here today, please visit my {ippity} sales blog.  I have a special price for this week just for you!! And I still have one of the Kissmas & Mistletoe sets left so if you buy anything, you can still get that for the very low price of $11!! Go check it out!!


Have a great day and may your bucket overflow with things that add bling to your life!!
