Welcome to this week's Unity/Ippity Hip Hop!
Today is the day that all the members from each DT share some projects with you. To start at the beginning, please visit the Unity blog. If you are coming to my blog from Karen Maldanado's blog then you are on the right track! Just keep clicking on the Next Blog icons at the bottom of each post to continue on the Hop!!
On Monday the Ippity DT members hijacked the blog hop to help celebrate Maria's birthday by showing off the cards we made for her. So today I wanted to play along with this week's Ippity Hippity Hop Challenge that Eva gave us this week which was to celebrate Christmas in August! I need to thank Eva because it is actually helping me get a head start on my Christmas cards! (Thanks Eva!!)
I also combined the Hippity Hop challenge this week with the Hip Hop Sketch Challenge that Jimmi is posting today on the Unity Challenge forum. We are now up to HHSC19 which was also based after a card that I made. You can see my original card HERE!
Here is this week's sketch...
Here is my new card using this sketch...
Basically I just changed the color palette to be Christmas colors and then changed my stamps to be Christmas ones too. The fabulous Seasons of Joy stamp set from Ippity was the perfect choice!!
I stamped the label stamp in green and added the sentiment in red ink and then colored in the holly leaves for the corner adornment on the label. I cut around the label stamp and then added a border in red. (I couldn't find my matching nestie and so I had to do it by hand! )
On the red strip of paper I embossed in white a row of the snowflakes from the same set!!
If you are looking for any of these great stamps, you can purchase them by finding an Ippity chick near you. Simply click on the Ippity Chick Locator icon from the Ippity blog and find a rep selling them in your area! Then just contact that chick to place your order!! Your stamps will be sent directly to you!!
For more great inspiration, please continue the Hip Hop blog hop by heading over to Lisa Arana's blog!
Have a great Thursday and enjoy the rest of the Hop!!
