Another post for Monday!

I am on a roll for blogging and for a Monday! LOL

I wanted to share my little project using the {ippity} stamp set The Simple Things. I am participating in two art festivals this fall and I thought I would get started on some clean and simple designs. These sale the best, especially if I sale them as a set.

The image was stamped with VersaMark ink on Cryogen 80# and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then used a sponge to add the Distress Inks in Peeled Pain and Worn Lipstick. The DP is from BasicGrey’s collection of “hello luscious.” The black pearls were added with a Viva Décor Pearl Pen (I love these pearl pens!).

I also wanted to share the links for two Get Hippity with Ippity groups. The first one is on The Crafter’s Café, (formerly The Latte Lounge) Get Hippity with Ippity/Join the Unity Community. The second is a GHWI Yahoo group. We will welcome you with open arms to both groups. At The Crafter's Cafe, we are having GHWI Challenge #4, which is a color combo.

In September we are opening up the Design Team blog as our Get Hippity with Ippity Challenge (GHWI) Blog. We will be having two challenges per month. They are scheduled for the first and third Mondays of each month. If you join one of the groups listed above, you will get a sneak peek two weeks before each challenge. Challenge #5, on September 5, is a sketch challenge.

Challenges that I have entered are:
Paper Playtime – Anything Goes
Polly Craft Challenge – Distressing
One Stitch at a Time – Anything Goes
365 Cards – Thirty Minutes or less

Thanks for stopping by again! If you have any questions don’t hesitate contacting me.

P.S. Beginning with the GHWI September 5th challenge you MUST us an {ippity} or Unity stamp.
