Three wonderful challenges for you!

Happy Monday everyone! This post is taking care of three challenges.
My first project is for the now current Get Hippity with Ippity (GHWI) Challenge #13! This challenge is all about hearts.

The stamp sets I used were two of Ippity’s newest releases.



I tried to keep my project slightly masculine. I don’t do masculine very well. Of course, I used my Copics for the coloring, but first I stamped Wise Guy with Memento Black Tuxedo. The hearts were stamped with SU Crafter’s Bravo Burgundy and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then cut with my circle die and accented with Aged Mahogany DI and Crystal Stickles. I’ve used three Spellbinder’s dies for this project: large classic circles, floral doily motif, and bird flourishes. My designer paper is from First Edition Papers Love Letters collection.

My next project is for our Crafting by Designs (CBD) challenge, January Week 2 Color Challenge. I can also use this for our GHWI Challenge #13. The stamp that I used is a very new Ippity release, Sweet on You. This cupcake tower was designed by Unity Artista Tracey Malnofski.

I did use my Copics on “I’m sweet on you.” The Spellbinders dies are large ovals, scalloped ovals, and floral flourishes. The designer paper is BasicGrey’s Lauderdale collection. The inks are Memento in Tuxedo Black and Angel Pink. I also accented with Chipped Sapphire DI. The white dots are done with a Sharpie white paint pen.

I hope you join us for our GHWI “Heart” challenge and CBD “Color Case” challenge.

The last fun challenge is at The Crafter’s Café in the Get Hippity with Ippity group. Our “Card” game is still going on, but it does end January 31. Come check that out.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate asking. Thanks for stopping by and have a very creative week!
