Ippity Hoppin'



Come closer.... closer....


Supplies:
Ippity: Fishy Philosophy
Paper: Tempting Turquoise & Kraft c/s (SU), White c/s (MFT)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Copic markers, BIC Mark-It! permanent markers
Other: Stickles (Ranger), Fish punch (EK Success), Starfish punch (Emaginations), Alpha beads, Acrylic square, Gluedots

Welcome to the weekly Ippity Blog Hop! You know the drill.... If you'd like to start at the beginning, use this LINK. If you are already hop-hop-hopping, I'll have a link at the bottom for you to proceed to the next vision of Ippity loveliness... Don't forget to leave a little love wherever you go because a random commenter will get a prize! And if you need to buy some Ippity, a link on the sidebar of the website above will help you locate your very own Ippity gal for help...

I inked up one of my favorite Ippity sets Fishy Philosophy once more because I thought it worked perfectly with a card folding technique that my friend Ericka used on a card that she sent me. I had to dissect the dimensions because I didn't have the instructions but that was the fun of it! A floating square of acrylic just screamed underwater scene to me. 


Frugal tip #57: Cut down and save your acrylic product packaging. It's a great canvas for StazOn, Ranger's alcohol inks, Sharpies and those great $1 BIC Mark-It permanent markers that Staples sells.


Thanks for dropping by...

Oh and I have some great news! A card I created with a Unity stamp will be published on p. 66 of the April/May issue of Stampers Sampler! So excited... Just had to share this with you, my friends.... I'll post a photo of it tomorrow, so please come back on by.....

Now, proceed to Emmie's blog if you're continuing on the hop....
