It’s Monday!

Mondays, for me anyway, mean that I will be late with everything today. So, I guess with that said, I will start with my blog post for our Get Hippity with {ippity} (GHWI) Challenge #18. GHWI ‘s Challenge #18 is another wonderful color combo from Jessica’s Design Seeds. Jessica has given us some amazing color pallets for our imagination to run wild. I am always finding myself going to her Design Seeds blog when I need color inspiration. The one the GHWI Design Team chose is Henna Tones, a beautiful color combo.

My project today was a lot of fun to make. I put my Copics, watercolors, and pencils aside. I let the paper do all the talking. My flower and leaves are from the {ippity} set “Now and Always.” I embossed each and then cut them out. The flower has three layers for dimension. You will see some writing on the background paper and the burgundy oval die cut. This was accomplished with a stamp from the {ippity} set “Because of You.” The background stamp was stamped on the paper with Peeled Paint DI, and on the oval die cut stamped with SU’s Very Vanilla. I then heat set the craft ink for permanency.
Now and Always
Because of You

Some of the supplies that I used were SU Craft inks in basic black and whisper white; DI in peeled paint;; DP from New Leaf collection; CS from SU in kraft and bravo burgundy; Perfect Pearl mist; Sharpie white pain pen; pearls; dies from Spellbinders and Memory Box.
I will be sending my little piece of art over to the {ippity} Opportunity Blog. Every Monday we have the beginning of an  {ippity} Linky Party.” If you are creating with an {ippity} stamp, please “link up” and show us your beautiful work.

Did you know…we have a group, Get Hippity with {ippity}/Join the Unity Community, at The Crafter’s Café? We have a monthly card game and the prize is a six (6) piece grab bag of {ippity} and/or Unity goodness.

Did you know…we have a brand new group, Get Hippity with {ippity}, on Facebook? Come join us and share your love of {ippity} and Unity!

Did you know…that you can order {ippity} and Unity at the same time? You can pick me, Aletha J. Williams (I’m in the bottom row), as your {ippity} Chick, order some {ippity} and then some Unity. I would appreciate it tremendously! You can also visit my {ippity} blog to view the latest releases, or purchase the sets that I do have in stock.

I hope we see you at our GHWI’s Challenge #18. Thanks for stopping by! If you need more information on my project, or just have questions in general, don’t hesitate contacting me.
