Ippity Chick Challenge #21


It's a sunny Saturday here and I've been to a lovely local market for fab organic and local produce. (And cake, but don't tell anyone...)

Anyway, it is also time for the next Chick Challenge {with Ippity}. Here is this week's card sketch:

I went for a very clean and simple interpretation of it - and without even thinking, chose yellow cardstock as my base just like in the sketch!

I know I say this all the time but again, I really love that sentiment! It's Ippity 'Happy Are Those' stamp. If I'd had charcoal or teal ink pads, I probably would have used one of those instead of the black but as I don't, black it is.

Supplies: yellow cardstock, My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline 'Dilly Dally' papers, baker's twine

Have a great weekend!

Unity March KOM Challenge card

Hello, Monday!

Time for a new Kit of the Month challenge over on Unity's blog. The sketch for this month is fab!

I used a past kit from November 2010 for my card.

I love the collection of frames stamp and thought it worked very well with the sketch. As a nod to the butterflies in the sketch, I masked off each frame and used the stamp with lots of small butterflies to stamp inside all the frames. The sentiment is also from the same kit.

I kept the rest of the card simple without embellishments as the frames are quite detailed and busy.

Supplies: Unity Kit of the Month November 2010 stamps, My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline paper, brown Memento ink, Promarkers.

All you need to do is fly...

Here is something else I made with some of the new Unity Stamps...

So far I've seen this Phyllis Harris "your wings exist" stamp used coloured in, which is lovely, but I wanted to do something different with it. I've used vintage sepia colours with a hint of purple.

The other stamp I used is also by Unity and called "Noted by".

The girl is coloured in with Distress Inks and a waterbrush.

It is a card but I think I will keep it myself! I love that sentiment. <3

Ippity Chick Challenge #20 card

Here's what I did instead of housework today...

It's a card for this week's Chick Challenge {with Ippity}. For the first time Unity Stamps can now be used for the this challenge in addition to Ippity. And that's just what I did. This is the card sketch:

And this is what I made:

I used Unity Stamp "Here's the Ticket" for the ticket, and Ippity's "Now and Always" set for the background flowers and the sentiment (which I cut in half to fit on the ticket).
