10.28.2010 – Flip Flop Hip Hop (post no. 2)

** this is post #2 for today, please scroll down for the new Limelight challenge **

It is Flip Flop Hip Hop day!!!
Today, the Ippity design team is working with Unity stamps and the Unity team is working with Ippity stamps.  I am so excited this is going to be a monthly feature!!!

First up, I have this simple little card to go with today’s theme.  I kept looking for a way to add more to it, but I just fell in love with the clean and simpleness.  I ended up just leaving it alone.  The dragonfly is from the August 2009 KOM and the saying is from the April 2010 KOM.  Amazing how two kits so far apart can work so well together.  It is just a simple way to send a little encouragement and support someone’s way.  The dragonfly’s wings are paper pieced from some Togetherness paper by Cosmo Cricket and popped up.

Did you see the brand spankin’ new Jillibean Soup stamps Unity released today???


Unity surprises are the best!!!
I am in LOVE with the fabulousity of stamps from these two companies.
PLUS, I’m super lucky to get to play with a few of the sets today.

Eeeek, these snowman mittens are just killin’ me!!!  They are so adorable.  I stamped them onto some patterned paper and then filled in the bodies of the snowmen with a white gel pen.  So cute!  I also love the saying…. just something light and fun for the season.  I went super cute with this one, so for my next one I went for a more classic look.

So, I went with a monochromatic brown for this one.  Has a bit of an old newspaper feel with just a touch of color with the light green pearls.  Just a little bit of stitching around each square and then popped it up.  Super clean and classy.  I had a dilly of a time with my sewing machine for these.  It kept pulling my stitches and after 20 minutes I was super frustrated!!!  All it took was pulling out my bobbin and putting it back in.  ARG… something so simple brought on such frustration.  If your sewing machine works then this would be one simple design for mass production!  haha.
Both cards use digital paper by Michelle Underwood.

Soooooo, do you NEED the new Jillibean sets yet???

Lisa H. is next to tempt you with some awesomeness!
Can’t wait to see what beautiful project she has for today.

  26. cat naps

    Love the clean lines of the snowflake card.

  27. cat naps

    Also glad you left the “I’m Here for You” card just the way it is because it’s perfect. The white space adds so much to this “clean and graphic” style card. If you had added any more, the image would have been lost, and it’s such an adorable butterfly. You really emphasized the sentiment, which is the point of the card. Really great card.

  28. Rona

    These are all just gorgeous – simple is sometimes perfect and that first card is totally perfect I love it!! They all are!!

  29. Susie Lessard

    This is one of the best CAS cards I’ve seen. Very nicely done.
