Challenge No. 1 with Get Hippity with Ippity

Welcome to our very first challenge at Get Hippity with Ippity/Join the Unity Community! This challenge runs for the entire month of April. That give you lots of time. The theme is Spring/Summer and Anything Goes. We want to see your creations pertaining to anything spring or summer. And you can create whatever you want, be it cards, scrapbook layout, Easter baskets, etc., whatever your heart's desire. There’s also going to be a First and a Second prize winner. Check out the blog for the prizes. Another thing, if you use an Ippity or Unity stamp in your creation, you will be entered in the judging twice. (The judges are my Design Team, Melissa and Sara!)


I wanted to share with you my little piece of art. My colors turned out to be more summer than spring, but it can go for both seasons. I have used the Ippity stamp set “Sing a New Song.” The finished project is bright (which I like) and a little out of my comfort zone. This was just the second time I used my sewing machine on paper. I still need practice, but I think I am hooked. I love the texture stitching gives paper. I think this was the first time I have used just FIVE Copic colors. LOL!

Challenges that I have entered:
SSC Creative Card Challenges – Stitching on your project
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge – Animals/Pets
DYSU Challenge – Use lots of yellow
Dutch Dare Card Challenge – Spring has Sprung
The Paper Shelter – Anything goes

Supplies I used for “Sing a New Song”:
Stamp set: Ippity “Sing a New Song”
Copics: y15, 17; yr15; bg18, 32
Pens/Inks: Spica in Turquoise; Gelly Roll in Clear Star;
