Challenge #6 at GHWI

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Are you ready for another Get Hippity with Ippity Challenge? This one our sixth challenge and is an easy one. The theme is “Buttons or Bows or Bling, Oh My!” You can use one button, one bow, one bling, or your could use two buttons, two bows, or two bling, or what about just one only of the button, bow, or bling. You can use all three or just one or two. You get the idea?

What I have done with my project is use just one, and that’s a lot of bling, with crystals. I have also used the {ippity} stamp set “Gingham Christmas Greetings.” I am going to really enjoy making some Christmas cards with this set.

My cardstock is SU’s Natural Ivory and Cranberry Crisp. I have also used the SU craft ink in Always Artichoke and Distress in Tea Dye. My bling is rhinestones from KaiserCraft. My DP is from Best Creations Ink “Merry Christmas” collection and Authentique “Wonder” collection.

I think that I have found another favorite die company, other than Spellbinders. It’s Cheery Lynn Designs. Their designs are very detailed and they are fast with delivery because their dies are manufactured in the U.S. The dies I used are the Tropical Flourish and O’ Tannebaum Christmas Tree. Just an FYI, they just now have published their September release. I think you will find something you like.

I want to invite you all to two groups, join which every one you would like. The first one is at The Crafter’s CafĂ©, Get Hippity with {ippity}. The second is my Yahoo group, Get Hippity with {ippity}. These groups are where you can show off your {ippity} or Unity little pieces of art and have some fun. I also announce the next challenge two weeks in advance.

Challenges I have entered are:
Card Cupids – anything goes
Bah Humbug – flourishes and swirls
Phindy’s Place – Christmas

Thanks for stopping by. Now head on over to our GHWI Challenge #6, “Buttons or Bows or Bling.”
