Monday and the Ippity hoppity

Forgive me I was unable to create a new card for this week's hop. It is Victoria Day here in Canada and thus I celebrated a little too much. LOL Here, then is a rerun instead. I just watched The Young Victoria so I feel like speaking all proper English and all that rot. Enough said, here is the card which I'm sure alot of you have never seen before and for those of you who have, act surprised.

Anyone see the connection here?  Victoria Day?  I just watched Young Victoria!  Crown?
Yeah, I guess you got it. 
Happy Monday!

Ippity Blog Hop Monday

The  new releases are so awesome!  I was on my Ippity chick's doorstep at sunrise.  I bought the whole shebang!  Here is a cool card with a pretty neat techinique by Gina K. of Stamp TV. It's called cuttlebugged wax paper/  Check it out, pretty snazy technique. If you look really close you can see the wax paper resist pattern on the background. I totally stamped the background using Fall For You stamps and after do the technique thingy I wiped Haystack ink all over it. I really like this card alot. I hope you do too.

FWF Simple says it best...

Happy Friday! I love Fridays. I wish there was 7 days of Fridays. But then which one would I pick to be my favourite Friday? Too much thinking, ugh.

Here's my FWF card using the March KOTM. I also used the thought bubble from Simply Sweet for the clouds. The background paper is from Stampin Up. The sentiment is from the new Ippity release The Simple Things. (Oh my goodness, I love every single one of the stamp releases.)

It's Ippity Time again - Let's hop!

Good Monday morning everyone! New releases  for Ippity just around the corner..... I'm excited to see them!  For now though I'm working with Regal Greetings.  It's such an elegant set. I made a sympathy card because, well you know, you should always have a few of those on hand.  Unfortuantely.  The patterned paper is Deja Views and the cardstock is Stampin' Up. (soft sky and elegant eggplant)  I threaded my lace with soft blue ribbon. I like that.  I embossed the frame with black ep and cut it out and then popped it up.  The butterflies are an SU embosslit called Beautiful Wings and the corners are with the SU corner punch.  Hey no kidding, you want some incredibly useful punches, take a look at Stampin Up.  You won't be disappointed.  So anyway, here it is:

Have a marvellous Monday hoppers.

Cupcake anyone?

This is the most fabulous project. I'm totally in love with it.  I followed the instructions from Tresa Black of Fabulously Artsy.  She is brilliant!  Brilliant I tell you!!!!  ... and funny, prepare to laugh your butt off.  I followed the directions for this cupcake on her You Tube video here.  She gives the best instructions.  In fact check out all her videos, you'll love her. 

So anyway this is the cutest way to give someone a gift card.  The gift card slides into the clip which slides down into the cupcake.  Hello, is this not the best idea? 

Go give it a try!  You'll like it (but don't try to eat it).

H(ippity) Hop Monday

Happy Hopping my friends.  Today I used the Music of My Heart set to create this card. I also used the DCWV All Dressed Up Stack for the side strip.  I embossed the bird with SU white embossing powder and then cut him out and popped him up. I made the little rose and put the Martha Stewart fronds coming out the sides.  I hope you like it

Have a wonderful Monday.
