B{ippity} Boppity Boo, a tip and an announcement...

I am running out of titles, as you can see....Lol.
You'll find the start of the Ippity blog hop HERE. Take a jog around and leave comments as you go in order to increase your chance for the random commenter prize drawing.

My card this week is, what else, a tri-shutter card. (When I want a quick card base this is my go-to design now.) I used Party Hat Wishes and Quotes a 'la Happy. Papers were Springtime Vintage from SU for the three inset papers and Songbird by DCWV for the lovely green leaves and the card base that is peeking out.





Frugal tip #58: Use this cute EK Success punch to make a bird. The beauty is you can face your punched bird in either direction! And they make this punch in a larger size. I found the larger one in the clearance section at Michael's. I used my little one to add a little zing to the back of my card....

Okay, now please please please check back tomorrow for a really fun event I'm going to start on Tuesdays every week!
I'm such a tease....

I just saw your tri-shutter card tutorial. I think it is totally fantastic! It is different from anything else that I have seen. I will try it this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration.

Cindy, I can see why you love to make this style of card because you really rock it! You amaze me every time with the papers and ideas that flow from the images. I love this! That is one cute bird signature from the little paisley. ;)

Wow! This is great and I love the colour combo. I am always scared of using Green and Blue together, probably as we have a rhyme over here that goes 'Blue and Green should never be seen unless on the dress of an Irish Queen' You make it work so well though!

ANOTHER one! I love that you make so many tri-folds! YOU nailed this one too! I love the buttons on that Ippity stamp--and how beautiful the papers and stamping work together! FAB JOB! Thanks so much for playing along and joining in the fun over at ATU!!!
