Snow in Ippity!

Welcome to the second H{ippity} Hop! If you've just happened upon my blog, start here so you don't miss a thing. Yum! I've seen a lot of very nice projects using Ippity stamps this week! Here's mine:

I loved this challenge to use snow on your card. However, I didn't have any winter Ippity stamps to use! So, I let the images 'speak' to me. What could be better than having snow on mushrooms? Having one of the mushrooms stand out from the others as making good times GREAT! LOL! And yep, that background piece is from Unity.

Here's a closer view of the texture and dimension included on this card:

I really enjoy the look of liquid applique on cards. I've tried several products, but this comes closest to actually resembling snow. Here's what my backyard looked like lately:




I love snow. LOVE it!! Our home has a long history - this was the first house on the property, but now it's just a storage building. It has a lot of character!

You should invest in a little ippity. It's very affordable. JenMarie is my pusher...eh...supplier! Then you can play along! Next week's ippity challenge is to use your stamps to create your own patterned paper. That's gonna be a lot of fun! Check out the details here, and play along!

Ok - you're off to the next blog on the hop. Michelle!!! I love her stuff.

Ta for now! ~ky
