Hip Hopping Friday with a big BANG!

This is a lengthy post but WORTH sticking it out until the end!!!
I am so excited... I just got some new toys in the mail. 
I just got This BABY!  

I have wanted on for awhile now and got it for a steal on eBay! 

I also just got this amazing Unity set! The Artist in You by Donna Downey
I have wanted this set for awhile and I finally gave in. Oh Boy am I happy it did! 
I also got 7 packages of gemstones from Scrapbooking Supplies for next to nothing.
Lastly, I got my KOTM!!! 

OMG!! Have you seen this set! I love it! That is nothing new becuase I LOVE each and every kit that I have received and I have over 12 now!!! 

So what did I make for the hop?  Well you know how it is when you get a stamp set.... it screams for ink! 
First I decided to use my KOTM stamps! I used this adorable bird! I colored it in with my copics (R32- peach, RV11- pink, V06-lavendar, B14- light blue, B01-mint blue and T0-toner gray). Before I started to color I used ColorBox Azurite chalk ink which happens to be ready for embossing powder. Yes, I added some clear embossing powder to my cute little bird. It's very hard to tell but it is embossed.  I added my gems and cut it out and adhered it with glue dots. 

Here is the card- 

I used my scor-pal on the bottom of my card for some dimension. I then added some gems... I just love these guys.  My last step was to add my sentiment stamp! 

Of course knowing this was a big day for me (you must continue reading), I decided to make another card. I thought I would use the get sketchy sketch for the Ippity challenge. I made this card with that... 

Only after I finished it did I foolishly realize... DAH!!! I was suppose to use my Ippity stamps. See I was so anxious to use my Donna Downey set, The Artist in You set that it slipped my mind.  I used my cosmo criket paper and ribbon, my chalk inks and one of my already made flowers.  I was of course in desperate need to use my new Copic air brush system so I added some color to my flower! Those little gem flowers are from the new ones I just received in the mail today! 

Well 2 last things...
First is....




Yep.... that's right, make sure to leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win 25 random Unity Stamps! 
I will pick a name from random Saturday morning and post the winner here and on Splitcoast.

Well I did say that I had 2 things right!!!  
I decided to share the wealth! I have been very luck lately and have won some wonderful things from blogs so I am sharing some of those things with you!!! 
Check it out... 

You see 3 Unity stamps/sets and 1 Ippity set from the Fall line.  How about all of that paper... have you ever wanted to sample some SU paper? Here is your chance. This is from my collection. There are 1-2 pcs of every color in the collection (minus chocolate chip and a yellow). There are even current and retired in colors included.  It is a huge stack of paper.  Those litte gems are from the ones I got today.

It's Monday and that means it is time for some Ippity Hip Hop!!!

Happy Monday ladies! Another Monday has some and so has a little creation with Ippity.  My wonderful husband Aaron and I donate our time to cook a gourmet meal that is auctioned off at a Catholic Charities event. Friends of ours buy everything and host it at their home and we do all of the cooking.  My husband LOVES to cook so this is a great opportunity for him to make things that he normally wouldn't. The menu was 6 courses and amazing.

Anyway, the couple that won the dinner brought little gifts for everyone.  She gave me a gift bag filled with bath and body works signature collection items. So I needed to make a card to say thanks.  I wanted something simple that I could give as a thank you so I made some thank you sets to say Thanks!

some close ups! 


Recipe for my cards -
Paper: Neenah and SU (rose red and Kiwi Kiss)
Stamps - Ippity - Just wanted to say... and Unity stamp- Royal Day
Inks are all Color box chalk inks
Ribbon - Paper Studio (white) and Stampin Up
Misc - su pop ups, score pal adhesive

Make sure to check out all of the wonderful talent today by going to Ippity's blog.

Have a wonderful week!
