Hippity Hop!!

Happy Monday everyone!!



It's time for another H{ippity} Hop!  Today we visit each other's blogs and show off the {ippity} creations that we have to share.  To start at the beginning of the hop, please visit the {ippity} blog for the list of participating blogs.

As you read this I am still over in California enjoying the Craft Hobby Association TradeShow.  Hopefully I have been able to check in on my blog, the forums or even FaceBook to give you some updates!  I have something fun planned to pick the winner of last week's challenge, so be sure to check in on the {ippity} forums a little later today!

Each Monday coinciding with our H{ippity} Hops, we challenge our {ippity} peeps to participate in a challenge.  And this week DT member Maria was up to assign the challenge and she has asked that we make a shaped card (other than a square or rectangle!)  To find out all the details of participating in this challenge (IHHC8), please visit the {ippity} forum.

The {ippity} DT members have some samples on their blogs showing shaped cards for today's challenge...

Here is mine...


I made a card shaped like a house and decorated it with the {ippity} house from the Devoted set and the paper pack from the Fall 2009 {ippity} collection.


The house was colored in using Copic Markers.  I cut out around it and then layered it onto the base papers.  The sentiment for the card comes from the {ippity} Simply Home stamp set.  I replaced the letter "o" with one of the hearts coming out of the chimney from the house stamp.



I made the grass for the card by cutting a strip of green coordinating paper and making multiple cuts part way down the strip to represent the individual blades of grass. I distressed the edges of the card using Versamagic Jumbo Java chalk ink.

If you are interested in purchasing any of the {ippity} stamps you see featured here today, please visit my sales blog HERE.  Keep in mind that I am away at CHA until Wednesday and will not be able to ship any orders until I return.  But feel free to email me with your interest! 

Come back on Thursday to the {ippity} blog where I will show you how I created the shaped card in the same shape of the house stamp but bigger! 

Thanks for taking a look and have fun hopping around the rest of the blogs!  Have a wonderful day and may your bucket overflow with lots of inspiration from the blogs you will visit full of {ippity}
