h{Ippity} hop Monday

Happy Monday!!  I had a fabulous weekend at CKC - shopping, taking lots of fun classes and just enjoying a scrappy weekend!!  Hope your weekend was great too.  I have a quick post today (lots to do now that I'm home) this card will be going out in the morning to some Splitcoast girls in a swap with me. Sorry for the harsh shadows not the best time of day to take a picture!!  The card uses a super cute flower from the Ippity stamp set Because of You. I used PTI cardstock in Ocean Tides and the matching ribbon.  The pp is Dream Street.  I also had to use my new butterfly punch that I love - you will be seeing lots of that in the future :)

I'm so glad you had fun at CKC! I wish I could have gone too! I love this card and the color combo you used!

Here's how I inked my impressabilities (just in case you didn't see my response on my blog):
I used my Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I just put the ink on directly from the pad. Then I ran it through the Big Shot with with tan embossing mat. Everything got a little messy :) I just sprayed some stamp cleaner onto a piece of paper towel and wiped everything off when I was done and it came right off. I don't know that this is the correct technique -- but it was the lazy Katy way. A brayer would probably give you more even coverage of the ink.
