Ippity Spring Release Hip Hop

Welcome to this week's Unity and Ippity DT Hip Hop.

Today is a very special day.  Not only will you get to see some more of the Ippity DT's projects using the new stamps, plus a lot of amazing Unity stuff from the Unity DT girls, but you will also get to see what some of the Ippity Chicks have also created with the new sets for the release!

The long three month wait for new Ippity stamps is over!!  

The Ippity Spring 2010 Collection is HERE!!
Woohoo!!!  

Isn't it amazing!!!

Now all you have to do is find your Ippity Chick and order yours today!! 
 Be sure to do it quickly so you can ensure that you get your sets while your chick still has stamps in stock.

I have a couple of cards to share with you today.  The first one uses this week's Hip Hop Sketch for this week's challenge.  Our very own Maria designed the sketch for us.  You can play along with us and upload it to the SCS Gallery using the keywords Unity and HHSC07.




I love this sketch and I chose to use the flower stamp and flourish from the Now and Always set and the sentiments from the Fall For You set.  The DP is from October Afternoon.


The extra details I added were buttons from Clear and Simple stamps.  The border punch from Martha Stewart and some machine stitching!  I paper pieced the flower stamp in two different colors and layered them on top of each other.



My second card is for one of the challenges that will be posted on the Ippity Forum for our New Release Celebration.  Lisa A is the hostess for this challenge and she has made it a color challenge.  We are to use the following colors...

This was truly a challenge for me because I didn't have any DP on hand that had all of these colors in it.  So, I had to kind of put some separates together.  What do you think?


The flower and sentiment stamps come from the A Little Buggy collection.  And I also used the A Bit of Burlap stamp with a window masked out of it to stamp the flowers into.  The stamps from the Little Buggy set are all so fun and whimsical.  It was a joy to create a sweet and happy card like this!

To create this card, I used this week's sketch from the challenge on SCS.  It is SC280.



Instead of stamping the center flower bud, I chose to replace it with a button!  I added two paper strips and folded them to look like ribbon tabs.  The Happy sentiment was popped up with pop dots for added dimension.  I went into my DP archives for this paper.  It comes from the DCWV Nursery for Boys collection.  The flowers are from Prima.

Our big New Release Party is on the SCS forums 
today at 10am CST.  
Be sure to join us... it is going to be a lot of fun!!


Now head over to Lisa Arana's blog to see what special treats she has in store for you!
