Ready for an {ippity} Blog Hop?

You are? Well let’s get to hopping!

Welcome to the {ippity} Chicks’ June Blog Hop! All the new June {ippity} releases will be live tonight at 7 p.m. CST. This month we have some really fantastic {ippity} designs. If you are hopping along and this is your first stop and your wanting to take the whole {ippity} tour, you need to go to the {ippity} blog to really get the ball rolling. Here’s the line up for you.

barbara - {ippity} do da
heather f. - i heart {ippity}
maria - ria creations
rebecca - blooming pink 
aletha - aj's designs **you are here**

Guess what? During this hop, I have some blog candy for one lucky winner. My blog candy is a 10 piece grab bag of some {ippity} or Unity goodness. What do you have to do? You MUST become a follower and leave a comment. If you are already a follower, you still MUST leave a comment. The winner will be randomly picked from the comments. Good luck!!!!

My first project was created using the {ippity} “Dream to BE” set. I really enjoyed this floral stamp from the set. I colored with Prismacolor pencils and used Frayed Burlap DI for the distressing. The cardstock is from SU and the designer papers are from My Mind’s Eye Stella Rose collection. The oval die cuts are Spellbinders. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

My second little piece of art was also created using the {ippity} “Dream to BE” set. I love this bird! I have no idea what species of bird I colored with my Copics, but surely in this big wide world there is a bird this color. ;o) My cardstock is SU’s, and the designer paper is BasicGrey Indian Summer collection. The oval die cuts are Spellbinders. The ferns are a die from Memory Box. I cut them on watercolor paper, sprayed with watercolor jewels and Perfect Pearls Mist.

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to a couple of {ippity} wonderful groups. The first is The Crafter’s CaféGet Hippity with {ippity}/Join the Unity Community. We have a monthly card game and you could win a six piece grab bag of goodies and an {ippity} itty bitty of my choice. The other group is on Facebook – Get Hippity with {ippity}. Both groups are where we chat about {ippity} and Unity, and you can show off your little pieces of art using {ippity} and/or Unity.

I need a new picture!
There are now two ways to purchase these wonderful {ippity} stamp sets. One is my {ippity} Sales Blog. The second is at the Unity’s site. At the Unity Co. website you just need to pick me as your {ippity} Chick and go shopping. When you are at Unity’s site you can take advantage of shopping for Unity stamps along with your {ippity}. Be sure and check out what is happening on Unity's site.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the {ippity} Blog Hop. Your next stop will be Lisa, Snauz Scraps.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate contacting me.
Aletha

P.S. Check below for more {ippity} and Unity News! All of these events are happening at the Unity site (Unity site ONLY). Remember to pick me as your {ippity} Chick. The FREE INCENTIVE BASED KITS can be {ippity} or Unity!
