Gingham Christmas Greetings!

Hi Everyone!

First off sending my Prayers and lots of hugs to all of those affected by Sandy! My heart goes out to all of you.

Today with have another Christmas set to share with you for the {ippity} Fabulous Feature! Are you getting into the Christmas card making mode yet!?  haha!
I am starting early this year! (of course I say that every year! tehe)

I did a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4" card that could be used as either a card to mail, or makes the perfect size as a gift card as well.

 The design paper is from echo park "Christmas This n That", cardstock is Chocolate brown and Ivory pure luxury from GinaK. I used Memento inks and clear embossing powders for the images and the sentiment.
 Nestibilities for the cutting of the layers and the tag and lots of pop dots to give dimension to the layers and to the trees! ;)
 A pretty simple card to put together once you have your pieces stamped, embossed and cut out. The little holly leaf and berries is actually a button that I cut the back off of. I think I purchased it in a Christmas selection bag at Michael's last year.
And then I added the grosgrain ribbon that i had also purchased at Michael's.
I hope you like it!
Thank you so much for stopping by! You have no idea how much it means and how your comments lift me! :)
Blessings and Hugs,

Kissmass and Mistletoe!

Hi Everyone!

Today I am back with and oldie but a goodie! Especially with the Holiday's approaching! ;)

We are showcasing "Kissmass and Mistletoe", one of {ippity's} first Christmas sets. Of course since it is snowflakes and a snowman it can be used for any winter holiday!

This is a project that I did awhile back, but I thought I would re-post it since I think it is a great idea for gift giving!
I did a candle, using tissue paper to stamp on with versamark,and then embossed the images using white and turquoise embossing powder. The border of numbers at the bottom is also a Unity stamp.
I then melted the candle just slightly with my heat tool and covered the candle with the tissue,allowing it to absorb the wax. This way the candle becomes safe to burn since the fibers of the tissue paper are now filled with the wax.

 I added little adhesive gems to the centers of the snowflakes for some added sparkle.

 And then tied turquoise organza ribbon to the base with a stick pin that I added a snowflake and turquoise crystal charm to.
I hope you give it a try! I first saw the tutorial for this candle on ( I think! it has been awhile!) If you have any questions about it please e-mail me at and I will try to answer any questions that you may have about it!
Thank you for stopping by today!

It's the "Most Wonderful Time" of the year!

Hi Everyone!!

Back today with another Ippity Wednesday Fabulous Feature! And today we are sharing "The Most Wonderful Time"!
Hard to believe that the Christmas season is getting so close! And I think for most of us card makers and crafter's, Christmas projects have to start early, so I don't feel to bad showing you Christmas sets already! Kind of like when you go into Costco and they already have Halloween stuff up and it is only the 4th of July!! HahaHa!!

I created two different tags using this set. One just using the sentiment and the other with the image of the sleigh!

The design paper was cut to fit the tags. I used Memory Box dp on the Deer tag, and on the sleigh I used a new 6x6 design paper by GinaK designs!

 I used dies from spellbinders and Tim Holtz Sizzix.

I applied stickles to the pine cones for some sparkle, and around the edges of the tag some distress inks.
 For the sleigh I first colored it in with Copics and then applied Stickles over the top.
 The snowflakes are from petaloo that I purchased from i {heart} papers! And then I applied some little sticky back gems to the centers of the snowflakes and to the snowflakes on the design paper.

For the time being I have left these with out a To and From or specific occasion on them. This way if I need a Thank you or gift tag I can add that at the time.
I hope you like them!
Thank you so much for stopping by today.
If you would like to purchase this adorable set you can find it HERE! :D
Have a Great Day!
Sending each of you Blessings and Hugs,

Wednesday's Fab Feature "Oh my Darling!"

Hi Everyone!

Today is Wednesday and time for another Fabulous Feature by Ippity!

Today we have our one from our newest release,our Vintage set "Oh my Darling!".

This is such a fun set to work with! What I decided to do was a gift card holder! It is the perfect set to use for a feminine birthday, or a thank you, or even just a random act of kindness for a girlfriend or co-worker!

I found the tutorial for this gift card on Stamp TV originally here.
 The cardstock that I used for the base is GinaK pure luxury Chocolate Chip. I stamped the image on GinaK cream cardstock with Memento peanut brittle and then colored it in lightly with copics ( R000 and R11) I used just a little bit of R01 below in the "cage" area.
 The designer paper is from Graphic 45. I think it is just perfect for this set, so vintage!
 Ribbon is from my stash,and it was the last little bit,which makes me very sad because for some reason I just love this ribbon! I think it is from Maya Road which could explain why I love it so much! LOL
On the inside of the holder I placed the "measuring" tape piece from the set just over a semicircle I cut in the fold where the gift card is placed.It actually made opening the slot easier.  The sentiment is from a co-branded Unity and Cosmo Cricket set called "Get Scrappy With" from the Material Girl line . The image comes with a "stitched" border around it, but it was to large for the area, so I inked up just the words and then drew in my own "stitches"!
I used Nestabilities to cut out my main image on the front as well as for the sentiment.

I hope you like my little project! I think I will do another using this set and this design paper; but this time I am going to put the floral on the outside and the images of the Ladies with their hats,gloves and  dresses on the inside!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Please let me know if  you have any questions about the set or the holder itself. You can e-mail me at Or stop by my facebook page "Get Creative with Ippity" and say Hi! I would love for you to share your work with me and the rest of my followers!

Have a great day!
