Monday {ippity} Hop

It is {ippity} Hop Time. Please stop by at the {ippity} blog for the complete list of participants.

I have all the new {ippity} Summer 2010 release in stock and I still have the summer sale going on with Free shipping. Please click here to see all the new stamps and to order some (ippity).

I have two cards to share with you today. The first one is using the CPS Sketch #181. I used the paisley images from the Bitty Pixie Paisley set to create my own background and stamped the sentiment from the same set multiple times. In retrospect, this looks a bit busy, but I still like how it turned out. I will probably try this again with some pastel ink shades.



For the 2nd card, I used images from Life is the Journey stamp set. I stamped the vintage border in DI - Rusty Hinge and then stamped the bird image in Memento Pear Tart ink. I used some Memory Box patterned paper. The picture does not do justice to this card, it looks beautiful in real life. I used the SRM Stickers sketch for this card.


Here are the sketches,

Look at you go with the sketches!! I love, love, love that vintage border stamp you used!! And I also love Memory Box Paper, their patterns are subtle enough that they don't take away from the stamping or focal part of the card!!!
