Time for some Ippity!

This last Saturday I had my first card clubs of the new year, and we celebrated by trying out some of the new Ippity sets. It was lots of fun watching everyone discover these great stamps and as always, they came up with some great designs on their own too! Here are a few of the cards I had as samples:
This card is made with stamps from the Devoted kit. I love this whimsical butterfly! I used SU designer paper and Bashful Blue cardstock. The butterfly is stamped in Night of Navy ink and the leaves in Artichoke. I added some bling with stickles on the butterfly and attached it to the card in it's center using a glue dot. The sentiment is punched using SU's modern label punch and flanked by some self adhesive jewels for a bit more of that "bling" factor (of course!) This is one of those cards that can be so versatile, and you can change the feel of it just by changing the colors you use.
This card is s sweet valentine's using Straight from the Heart and My Mind's Eye patterned paper. The cardstock is Barely Banana, Sage Shadow and Riding Hood Red from SU. I colored this image using a blender pen and reinkers for a softer watercolor effect that I think fits this card very well.... I just love those cute little blue birds!

Masculine cards are always a challenge for me, but I like to provide at least one for the group each month. This card uses stamps from Just Wanted to Say and patterned paper from SU. The cardstock is River Rock and Not quite Navy - 2 colors I rarely use, but work well for a more masculine look. I finished it off with some chord instead of ribbon - very manly!
All the stamps used on these cards are available in the Ippity kits I have in stock and ready for purchase... just click on the Ippity link in the upper right of this blog and check them out! And keep an eye out... there are new releases coming in February!
Happy stamping everyone!

All wonderful project, Joan! I think the "man card" turned out great...it is the most difficult kind of card for most of us. The knot sets it off perfectly! Love your ippity designs!
