Ippity Tag

Good Monday to you all! I have made a quick tag for the Ippity linky party here. I used 2 different sets on this tag, Music of My Heart, and True Joy. I embossed the music notes in clear, then used Broken China Distress Ink over it. The swirl I stamped with Black Soot DI. I stamped the birds and sentiment, then punched them out with my EK Success label punch, and inked the edges. The ribbon is seam binding that I inked to match, then wrinkled it. If you are interested in these sets, please see my Ippity blog for info, link is on my sidebar! Here are the complete sets:

Squash Book

Here is a little scrapbook called a squash book, that I saw a video on youtube for. Click here to see the video posted on her blog. I put pictures of my family in this one. The stamps I used are from Ippity sets, except the love one. The papers I used are from Jenni Bowlin, and DCWV, and I made my own coasters from chipboard. I hope you check out the video on how to make these cute little books! They would make a great gift too! Thanks for stopping in today!

Mini Basket Tutorial

I thought I would show a quick tutorial of the mini basket that I will have at my workshop next week. I would have done a video, but my camera and computer are not cooperating! These are quite easy and quick, so I hope you will enjoy!
Start with a 6x6 inch piece of DP, and score at 2 inches and 4 inches. Turn the paper 90 degrees, and score again at the same 2 and 4 inches. This paper I used is from a 6x6 paper pad by Lily Bee Designs.
Since this paper is not double sided, I randomly stamped flowers in 3 colors from the new Ippity set Friends+Flowers=Priceless set. Then you will need to cut on the score lines as shown in the pic on 2 sides only. Fold on all score lines.
Once folded, bring the 2 outside pieces together and join the corners. Keep the middle panel to the inside as shown. Staple all 3 layers together. Do this on both sides.
Cut a strip of the same DP 1/2 inch by 6 inches. Attach to the inside of the basket with glue dots as shown. I stamped the sentiment in red, and punched it out with my EK Success label punch. I sponged around the edges with blue ink. I attached the label to the basket with foam squares.
And the last step, I stamped another flower in red, and fussy cut around it. I attached a button with some twine in it, and used foam squares to attach to the basket.
These would make cute party favors too. Fill with candies in a cello bag. Hope some of you make these cute little gifts! Thanks for lookin in!

Grungy Monday 11!

I have found time this week to join in on the Grungy Monday challenge at StudioL3! We are doing a technique from Tim Holtz's blog back in 08'. A batik look which you can read all about here. I used my new ippity stamps again, and used the swirl stamp from the set My True Joy for the batik panel. I used Wild Honey, Forest Moss, and Barn Door Distress Inks. I then stamped over it with the leaf from the set Friends+Flowers=Priceless, and the sentiment is from the same set. The papers I used are from Jenni Bowlin. The colors of this card are more a Fall theme, but pretty just the same! I used the rosette die, and another sizzix die for the small flower. Thanks for looking in!

Ippity Release Time!!

It's time for the new Ippity release Party!! There are 5 new sets being released today, and this card uses the Friends+Flowers=Priceless set. I made my own background paper using 3 of the flowers and leaf from this set! To get all the info about this set, and other sets I used on this card, see the post on my ippity blog here! I'm still having problems commenting on some of your blogs. I think it has something to do with the web browsers. I have updated mine, and it has helped with some blogs, but still can't comment on everyones. Hopefully soon I will, I have visited your blogs, so don't think I have given up!!
