H{Ippity} Hop Monday

Happy Monday everyone!  It's time for the Ippity Blog Hop, and a chance for me to play some more with the stamps from the Spring Release.  I have been itching to try out Season of Joy with my nestabilities, so I decided it was time!
It is so cool that this set coordinates with nestabilities labels 10 and 13.  I used Labels 10 for this card. And while the set comes with many very nice Christmas sentiments, the you can of course mix this set with any sentiment for any occasion - I love it!  I used PIT white cardstock for the base card, and ran it through the Big Shot using the Sizzix snowflake folder.  I love the sizzix embossing folders for this because they are large enough to emboss the whole base of the card.  Although you can't see it well in the picture, I added some shimmer by applying Smooch Spritz to the base, and the snowflake is coated with both Crystal Effects and stickles.  Don't forget you can get this set and all the other Ippity sets on my Ippity Sales Blog HERE.  They are all in stock and ready to ship.  And make sure you check out the other great blogs on the hop today.  You will find the list on the Ippity Blog - don't miss out on the great creations!
Happy Stamping!

Hello Joan,

What a beautiful card! I love the color that you used! Purple is my favorite and why should all snowflakes cards be blue? Nope! This one is perfect!! Love the embossing as well!!
