Cutie Pie and an Ippity Hop



It's Monday again.... which means time for another Ippity H{ippity} blog hop. Go here to get started and leave a comment trail.... you could win a prize!

This was my take on the Ippity Hippity Hop Challenge #54 to make an easel card. I'm warning you... the mechanics of this kind of card is so easy, you're going to want to make it all the time! (Splitcoast Stampers has a tutorial here.)

I'm seeing washi tape popping up everywhere and since I don't have any yet, I thought I'd try to make my own with my Gurnsey Gingham stamp, Real Red ink and masking tape. I got a kinda cool result. Because it's sheer, I layered two strips for the tablecloth above. (When I stamped it, I knew it would have to be stuck down but able to be lifted easily after drying so I stuck it to some leftover plastic packaging... worked great.)

I used lots of papers from the Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 pad. So great that they all complement each other. A fun development was that the paper with all the letters on it helped me create my sentiment on the bottom of the card.  So Frugal tip #52: Punch letters out of patterned paper for a custom sentiment.

Four Ippity sets came together on this card: Farm Fresh, Party Hat Wishes, Quotes a la Happy, and Gurnsey Gingham. Other deets can be found in my SCS Gallery.


Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful holiday week!
