It's Thursday and that means....

HIP HOP!!!

Has reality sunk in for you yet?  I know that I am still so excited about the fact that Hip Hop is back, and that {ippity} DT girls get to play along on the Hip Hop too!!

So here is the drill...

The Hip Hop starts at the Unity blog 

Start hopping by going to the first DT members blog.  
Each blog will be equipped with these new buttons 
so you know exactly where to click to get to the next blog!


Keep clicking away to each of the Unity and {ippity} DT members blogs 
until you end up at the {ippity} blog where Maria will have a new tutorial for you!!

Sound like fun?


If you are here from Eva's blog then you are on the right track!



My card for you today is inspired in two ways (well three if you count the wonderful {ippity} 
stamps that I used!  LOL!)  The first inspiration is from the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger!  


My color scheme and the idea for the big bow with the button came from this amazing card designed by Heidi Van Laar  which was chosen to be the Moxie Fab Trigger this week!



I also was inspired by this week's Hip Hop Sketch challenge HHSC02

 Jimmi gave us this awesome sketch to work with and I really loved getting to play with it! Now it is your turn to give it a try and share with us on the {ippity} forum what you create with it!



The {ippity} stamp set I used is Where You Should Be  (Which I have on sale this week!)

I just love this sentiment.  It is such a true statement and one that all young people need to learn and appreciate.  I am going to send this to my daughter who just found out she was accepted to Vet School at the University of FL!  She is going to need a lot of strength and courage to make it through the next four years of college!!  But I am so proud of her and know that she will do very well!!


To make the bow and flower embellishment, I started by layering two felt flowers and one button on top of each other.  I stitched them together with embroidery floss that I stained with a Copic marker.  I then glued that to the bow that I made from Dollar  store satin ribbon!!  I think it is so pretty!!

I plan on sharing a tutorial with you on the {ippity} blog  in the near future on how I created the ruffle at the bottom of the card.  Nothing special, but something that might help you make ruffles if you don't already know how to!


The DP I used is from the Bo Bunny Kitchen Spice line which is from the same collection as Heidi's card above!  I threw in a little paper piercing and some light highlighting with a Spica Atyou pen by Copic.  Unfortunately the glimmer didn't photograph well in this picture!

One last thing!!  

{ippity} stamps has a Fan Page on Face Book!!  
We are over half way to reaching our goal of getting 300 Fans and then there will be a prize given out!
