Paper Piecing Hippity Hop!

Hello blog friends and Ippity fans!!


It's Monday and time for another Hippity Hop Blog Hop.  If you didn't start at the Ippity Blog, then be sure to head there to see the complete list of all today's participants.  To sign up for next week's Hop, just look for the sign up thread on the Ippity Forum at Splitcoaststampers!


Lisa Henke is our hostess for today's Hippity Hop and she has also issued a new challenge for us.  This week we are to use paper piecing on our card or project.


Here is what I made...


I used the flourish, sentiment and butterfly from Ippity's Now and Always set.  Graphic 45 is the manufacturer for the DP.  The butterfly is paper pieced and popped up on pop dots for dimension.


I colored in the flourish using a coordinating Copics marker color and added brads in the circles on the flourish. The pretty trim is from Michael's.  The border punch is by Martha Stewart.

We sure hope you will participate in the challenge this week!  I can't wait to see what you guys do using the Paper Piecing technique on your card! Are you looking to buy the Ippity set you see used here or any other set for that matter?  Please visit the Ippity Blog HERE to find an Ippity Chick near you!

Have a great Monday... and please say a prayer for my sister Michelle who is having surgery today!  Thanks!

It's the little details that really make a difference and we say 'wow'...the fact that you placed your trim to show a little bit of the brown pattern paper just under the sentiment sure makes us notice that sentiment...fabulous Kelly! Love everything about this card, and 'thinking about your sis too'! Hope all goes well!
