Happy Hippity Hop!

Unity Friends With Flair Blog Hop

Happy Friday everyone! What a great way to start off the weekend by being a part of my first Friends with Flair Blog Hop. All of the cards in this post are made with either Unity Stamps or {ippity} stamps. If you don't own any I highly recommend getting your hands on some. They are the best stamps out there! So here are a few of the cards I made for World Card Making Day.



This is my entry into the mini card challenge. Isn't that bird cute?

This one is for the color challenge. I really like the way this one came out.


This is for the Birthday card challenge.

This one is for the paper piecing challenge. I had a lot of fun doing this one. I was worried I wouldn't think of a way to use this stamp but I think I pulled it off.

I will be using this one for the distressed challenge. I distressed the edges of the card with ink.

I hope everyone enjoys my cards and remember I will be hosting a card class at my home on Sunday, October 10th at 11 a.m. Please call me or email me to confirm if you will be joining us. I have one spot left. Thanks for stopping by!

{ippity} Hippity Hop

Welcome to everyone on this Monday morning. This is my first time participating in the Hippity Hop (so exciting). Hopefully this will be the first of many. So after a whirlwind weekend including World Card Making Day on Saturday, October 2nd, I have had a lot of fun making cards for the challenge to win one free year of KOTM by Unity. If you haven't heard about it head on over to Unity Stamp Company for all the details. So here are a few creations from this weekend. This card is for the sketch challenge which you can find here: http://dahlhousedesigns.wordpress.com/.


This card was a lot of fun and I changed it up a little. I used paper from Cosmo Cricket and Unity stamp set "Garden Variety". I stamped the flower pot and colored with Copics.
This is a set of cards I made using {ippity} stamp set "That's Creepy". How cute is that little spider. I used different colored gems for their eyes. I challenged myself to use only one kind of cardstock and no patterned paper.

Here are a few random Halloween cards I made from items in my stash.

and last but not least.....

I went out of my comfort zone with this card but I must say I really like the way it turned out.

A quick reminder that I will be holding an {ippity} card class this Sunday, October 10th at 11:00 a.m. for any that are interested please email me or leave me a comment letting me know you will be coming. For those of you visiting as part of the Hippity Hop, thanks for stopping by and make sure you stop by the other blogs and leave them some love.

Have a great Monday!
