You Did It!

I am just loving this new set I got from PTI called Enjoy the Ride.  I have made several cards with it the week!  It's really very cute, and not like anything else I currently own.  So of course that means I HAD to get it, lol!
I made this to send to my niece who just finished her second year of college.  Isn't this a great color combo?  I had scraps of these colors laying together on my table, and just HAD to put them together in a card. 

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great weekend!  Don't forget to check out the sale on my {ippity} page!

Supplies:
stamps - Enjoy the Ride, Polka Dot Basics
paper - hawaiian shores, terracotta tile, orange zest, white
ink - hawaiian shores, terracotta tile, chocolate, copics
acc - choc ribbon, circle nesties, CE, rhinestones, dimensionals

Verve Challenge 1

Verve has 5 challenges for the next release, and I managed to do all 5 on Tuesday! However, I spent all day Wednesday fighting with my camera/photo editing software and am not speaking to either of them right now, lol! This is the best of the worst pics I took.

Anyway, challenge #1 was a color challenge: shades of orange, green, and aqua. The layout was inspired by this card from Teri Anderson.

Thanks for stopping by!

stamps - So Happy, Happy Thoughts, Polka Dot Basics 2 (PTI), Text-style Background (PTI)
paper - white, hawaiian shores, aqua mist, spring moss, orange zest, ripe avocado

H{ippity} Hop

Welcome to H{ippity} Hop once again! The {ippity} blog has a full list of participants for you to check out.
I took my inspiration for this card from this one by Amy Rohl. I am really happy with how it turned out! I really wanted to add some stitching, but alas I have no way to do that, so I put some piercing around the tilted layer instead. I fussy-cut (love that term, lol!) several branches and glued them down only by the bottom of the stems so they come off the card a bit. I even sponged the edges of the card base, and that's not something you see from me hardly ever, so don't get used to seeing it here!

Thanks for stopping by! If you are interested in purchasing these stamps, check out my {ippity} sales tab at the top of this blog.

Supplies:
stamps - Where You Should Be, Just Wanted to Say
paper - ocean tides, aqua mist, ripe avocado, vanilla, Farm Fresh (OA)
