You Deserve the Best!



Today is one of my favorite days of the week!! 
It's Thursday which is the day we get to Hip Hop!!

Join the Unity and Ippity DT girls as we share with you some projects using the best stamps out there!!

Start the Hop from the beginning at the Unity Blog!!
If you are coming here from Karen Maldonado's blog then you are doing great!!



You Deserve the Best!!


In all avenues of your life that statement is true!  But when talking about stamps, I am here to tell you that if you are using Unity or Ippity stamps to create with then you have the best stamps available!  Unity stamps are high quality, deeply etched red rubber stamps that come pre-mounted on cling foam and also precut.  They have the best stamp designers that provide us with such cute and trendy stamps with each release!

You deserve the best, so if you haven't already tried these stamps then I hope that you will give them a try!!  If you are looking for a place to buy Ippity stamps from, simply find an Ippity Chick near you using the locator link below and place your order.

We have a new sketch for you this week from this week's Hip Hop Sketch Challenge that you can find on the Challenge Forum at SCS.  We are up to HHSC22 which is based off a sketch made by Christi.  Who by the way has suffered a pull in her back leaving her a bit limited this week, so please say a prayer for her!


For my card I flipped the sketch to a landscape orientation and had some fun with this adorable paper from the Pebbles May Bouquet collection.  I just love the bright and spring like colors in this set!


The Ippity stamps sets I used are:

 

I started by stamping Book It as my background onto white cardstock using Bordering Blue SU ink.  The I added some of the flowers from You Deserve on top of that using SU's Summer Sun.  The sentiment was stamped in Brocade Blue by SU.



For the accent flowers that I used as my embellishments, I stamped the flowers onto the dotted Pebbles patter with embossing ink and then applied detail white embossing powder to it.  I cut them out and popped them up with pop dots and added a some beads for the centers!  A MS border punch and some machine stitching provided the final touches for my creation.

I love how this card came out!!  It is a recent favorite of mine!!  Don't you love it when you really love how your cards turn out!!  That's always a bonus!!  :-)
