It's H{Ippity} Hop Monday! 2/22/10

It's Monday, and normally I hate mondays!  But today is different, because I am able to join the H{Ippity} Blog Hop for the first time!  I've been having lots of fun creating all week with my new Ippity kits, and today's project uses another kit from the Winter 2010 release - Regal Greetings.
I love the elegant look of this set, and decided to pair it with the gorgeous paper in the DCWV La Creme stack.  In order to get a really solid black to match the velvet pattern on the paper, I embossed the chandelier and the frame in black.  I then cut out the frame with nesties label 4.  I created the corner embellishment by stamping with the ornate square from the set, cutting out the square and then cutting diagonally to make the triangle.  I attached a prima flower with a black crystal in the center to finish it off.  Dimensionals pop up the sentiment and corner embellishment.  Other supplies:  SU black organdy ribbon, Palette Noir Hybrid ink, versamark ink and black detail embossing powder.

Here's the full kit - can't you just imagine creating all kinds of elegant cards from wedding to sympathy with these beautiful stamps?  Check out all the Ippity kits I have for sale HERE.  Hope you all have a wonderful monday, and be sure to check out all the other great projects on the rest of the H{Ippity}blog hop.  You can find the list of participating blogs on the Ippity blog HERE.  Happy Stamping!
