Cute Gift Holder

Hey everyone! I have this project to share that I made for a color challenge at Holly's online class. Check the link out on my sidebar!! It is called a coupon holder, and I just think it's adorable!! Here are some pics of the inside. Holly's project had dividers on the inside, but for now I left them out. A yummy cookie would fit in there!!

I've always admired Holly's 3D projects and her class has given me the ambition I needed to get out of my rut!! You should check out her videos on YouTube!! Just go to her blog by clicking on the sidebar link, and there you will see a link for videos! Thanks for stopping by!

A Serene Christmas

Hello everyone! Time for some inspiration for our Christmas in July with a tag challenge at the Get Hippity with Ippity blog! I went with another non Christmas Ippity stamp set called So This is Love. I love these trees embossed in white, just says winter to me. The striped paper I made with two Stampin Write markers, and my ruler. I embossed the red strip, and border punched the green. For the sentiment, I added a few dots, and continued it on the inside with a Unity set from Jillibean Soup called Snowflakes Fall From Heaven. Now I have two Christmas cards done for this year!!
So with all that said, I have some sad news. The Get Hippity with Ippity challenge blog will be closing. :( This will be our last challenge. Our wonderful sponsor Aletha, has decided to move on, and close her Ippity sales blog and sites. I wish her the best in everything! She will still have her sales blog open until the end of August, so please go check it out and see if there are some yummy stamps to add to your collection! And also thanks to all of the bloggers who enter our challenges, we appreciate you!!

Scrapbook page

Hi all! I haven't posted for awhile! I do have a scrapbook page that I made this morning that I wanted to share. I made it for Holly's Fresh Cuts online class. She is a Stampin Up! demo, and has classes every few months. If you'd like more info about her class, check her blog out!! I actually combined two challenges on this LO. A color and sketch challenge. The colors to use are Old Olive, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, and Island Indigo. Most colors I have are retired, but you can still use them. So here is what I used on this 8 1/2 x 11 page: Ink and paper colors-Ruby Red, Riding Hood Red(ribbon), Mellow Moss, Barely Banana, and Bermuda Bay. Pennant Parade stamp set and punch, and the Top Note Bigz die. I will keep this page for my husbands scrapbook. And the lighting here is horrible this morning, very cloudy. So my pic is a bit dark. Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July

Christmas is our theme this month at the Get Hippity with Ippity blog, and you must also use a tag. The stamps I used on this card are all non-traditional Christmas stamps, but they work quite well!

The papers I used are all from my scrap bin. The flower is stamped 3 times and fussy cut and layered. A little stitching, and a mini tag for the sentiment. Please join us this month for our Christmas in July challenge, just click the link above!!

Mini Page with Paint

Hello everyone! I have a mini scrapbook page to share with you today. This is my ongoing Family chipboard album, and have decided to use it for the Unity Opportunity challenge where they want to see paint on your project. Well, I painted the whole page with Jenni Bowlin for Ranger paint dabber in Soap Powder. Then I took the stamp from Unity's Itty Bitty set called So Blessed by Simple Stories, and dabbed Adirondack Mushroom paint onto the tree only, and stamped around the page for a border. Then I stamped the whole image in paint again directly on the page. I went over the leaves of the tree with a lighter shade of green paint. I stamped the house with ink onto Basic Grey paper and paper pieced it to the page, and also inked the sentiment onto a scrap piece and attached it to the page. The bushes in front of the house were blobbed on with paint and I sprinkled on some green glitter for dimension. The die cut oval is a Spellbinders die. I am pleased with this page, and will add a photo later! It was fun to do something different, and I haven't played with my paints for awhile. So, thanks Unity for this challenge!!

5 Minute Card

Well, maybe 10 minutes!! It's nice for a change to make a real quick card, that isn't so 'plain' that you keep wanting to add to it! That's what I did for this card, and was inspired by the Unity Stamp Co Challenge Blog, where their theme is Summer. So I went with this cute kite stamp and sentiment that I got in a Unity grab brag, so I don't know exactly what kits they came from. I used my Stampin Write markers to color each of the kites, then just stamped onto the card front. I picked out some Cosmo Cricket papers that matched and attached them with a banner affect. I also inked the sentiment with a marker, and stamped it onto the card front. That's it, and done. Very pleased with it, and I don't think it needs anything else!
