GHWI Challenge No. 2 and Flowers, Flowers, and more Flowers

Happy Monday everyone!

Our very first challenge over at Get Hippity with Ippity (GHWI) was a success! I want to thank all those entries. You are the ones who made this possible. We had 31 entries! This is fantastic! The winners for that challenge are listed in the Challenge #2 posting.

Now on to GHWI Challenge No. 2. We want to see flowers, flowers, and more flowers. Your main image has to be a flower(s).

Here’s my little inspiration piece. I have used the Now and Always Ippity stamp set. This is one of my favorite sets.
All of my designer papers and cardstock is from Stampin’ Up! The dies are from Marianne Design. These little dies are wonderful. They make such intricate cuts. After cutting the dies I sprayed them with Pearl Glimmer Mist.
I stamped one of the flower stamps three times and embossed in black. I used only three Copics: v91, 95, and 99. I cut out each one, sprayed with Glimmer Mist Pearl and then layered. The center of the flower is a pearl flower center from Prima.

The sketch I used is from Verve on Splitcoast Stampers. Their sketches are so inspiring.


These are the challenges that I have entered:
Craft Your Passions – Anything goes
The Crafty Pad Designs – Pearls and Swirls
Sugar Creek Hollow – Embossing
Fairy Fun Fridays – April Showers bring May Flowers

Now for a little promotion!  Would you like 20% off the purchase of Ippity stamps? To find the secret code you need to join one of two Ning groups. The first one is on Simply Scrapping Crafts. The second one is on The Latte Lounge. You can find all Ippity stamps here. I will be adding more stamp sets to my shop and those will be Pre-Orders.

If you have any questions, please contact me.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
