Hippity Hop Birthday Style

Happy Monday everyone and Happy H{ippity} Hop!!

What a great hop this will be today.  Not only do we have lots of our regular talented participants, but I noticed a few of the Unity DT girls have signed up for today's hop as well.  So, we should be extra inspired by all the {ippity} creations that the fans will be sharing!

Lisa is hosting the H{ippity} Hop today and this week's challenge (IHHC9) which is to make a Birthday card using our {ippity} stamps.  Certainly most of the {ippity} sets could be used to make a birthday card with, but two come to mind right off the bat that are perfect for them!  Both "Just Wanted to Say" and Life's Little Moments have sentiments that will perfectly compliment any birthday  card you need to make!


Because I was using the Birthday sentiment stamp from Just Wanted to Say, it gave me a great chance to use a new embellishment that I bought from JoAnn's recently.  It is the cute little chipboard cupcake covered in epoxy from Colorbok called the Sweet Life.  Isn't it cute??


I am still working my way through all the SCS Sketch Challenges and used SC10 for this one.  I kept it true to form and just added a ribbon underneath the image panel!.


I also added the Bracket from Life's Little Moments that I cut out and raised up to accent the cupcake!  The DP is from a Birthday pack called All Kinds of Happy from Imaginisce. I added machine stitching to the edges of all the panels!

If you are ready to get inspired by a lot more {ippity} be sure to head straight over to the {ippity}blog for the line up of blogs to visit!  Thanks for stopping by and for your patience in waiting for me to get some more creations on my blog. I am officially back in the swing of things and you should be seeing cards and projects from me on a regular basis!
Have a great Monday and may your bucket overflow with lots of {ippity} inspiration.  Be sure to check out my {ippity} Sales blog for some specials on the featured stamp sets used today!

I think Ippity is copying me! Last week I had a shaped card when I then saw the challenge was a shaped card. This week I showcased birthday cards and now the challenge is birthday's! Must be great minds and all that happening! I love your birthday card. It turned out so cool. I love how you did that bracket/frame to showcase the cupcake! Beautiful!
