Soft Suede Moon Beams... more new {Ippity}

Time to share some more new Ippity with everyone!  I was intrigued by the weekly color challenge on Splitcoaststampers this week, so decided it was time for me to participate.  The colors are Soft Suede, Perfect Plum and Pale Plum.  This combo really took me out of my color comfort zone, but it was fun to play with.... so here is the result:

I used 2 Ippity sets on this card - a new one from the Winter 2010 release called Moon Beam and Heart Strings, and the cow is from a set in the first release - Simply Home.  I've been wanting to use this cow since I got the set, but just haven't been able to come up with the right card.  He finally made his (oops, I guess that would be her) debut!  It's hard to tell in the picture, but the the stars and moons sparkle when you see it in person.  I stamped the image in clear versamark ink, then sprinkled on white embossing powder, followed by Irridescent Ice embossing powder for just a touch of sparkle, as if they are twinkling in the sky.  Other Supplies: Palette Burnt Umber ink, SU Soft Suede Ribbon and Earth Elements button, crimper

And here is a picture of the complete set - I love the versatility of all the sentiments in this one.  It can be used for everything from babies, to valentines, to congratulations cards.  Stay tuned for some more samples later this week... and happy stamping!
