Stampy Fun

FINALLY some crafty play time!!! I love to just sit down and create without having to worry about 50 other things to do!! A rare and happy day :)

So I have 3 cards to share today!!

My first card is for the Paper a la Mode challenge at The Outlawz!
Our challenge this week is to use Happy on your card or project.
I used the new Ippity stamps called Bloom & Simplify. LOVE these sets!!!  The paper is from the Sugar Chic 6x6 pad by Heidi Swapp. I used my Tim Holtz Distress markers to color!
On the inside I used Ippity single Happy are Those.  These Ippity stamps are available on the Unity Website. {please click my name - Rona Mallard as your Ippity chick}

My next card is for the Unity Kit of the Month Sketch challenge.  Click here to see April's Sketch.  I used Simple Stories Happy Day 6x6 pad and stamps from my March KOTM.

My last card is for the Unity Challenge - which is a color challenge to use Pink, Green and off-white.  I choose my paper first - this one is from Cosmo Cricket Tea for Two 6x6 pad - perfect for the color challenge.  And because this paper felt a little vintage I decided to use this great Unity set called For the Record. And the sticker letters are from the Echo Park paper set that matches these stamps.

 Have a fabulous weekend!!

Ippity Release Day - and a little wedding update :)

I know my blog has been extremely neglected lately!! I have probably neglected everything in my life getting ready for my daughter's wedding - which is SATURDAY!!! I will show off some photos of some of the projects I made for the wedding and of course my favorite wedding pictures too. We did a little bridal shoot this week and I can't show you everything but I have one little peek to share today.

OK so are you ready for an Ippity Hop to CELEBRATE this fabulous new release!! I have to tell you Angie Blom is THE BEST!! She is so sweet and such a wonderful friend!! I couldn't be happier for her and her dreams coming true through Ippity and Unity!! I am so proud to have these stamps that she designed!! This is my FAVORITE new release!! I have worked on wedding stuff for several months (some days 12 and 14 hours A DAY!!) but I HAD to put it down and pick up these stamps for a bit!!!

I used watercolor paper for my base. Then stamped the floral stamp in glimmer glaze (Island Spring; Purple Passion and Wicked). After stamping the flowers I spritzed the entire thing with glimmer mist (Cherub Pink and Electric Blue). Then I stamped the girl (isn't she GORGEOUS) with black ink and then added some color to the dress using the same glimmer glaze.  I used the twig Ippity stamp from the Sing a New Song set to stamp using the green glimmer glaze along the bottom.  I stamped the sentiment with black ink. Then  matted in black to finish. (finished size is 6x7).  The real life picture is so glimmery and fabulous - I love it!! I may frame it or put it on a canvas later!  Now check out all of these new RELEASES!!  LOVE THEM DON'T YOU?!!! I can't wait til next week when I have time to give them all the attention they DESERVE!!
