Ippity Hippity Hop!

Happy Monday! Are you all recovered from the Christmas holiday? Did you waste time standing in line to exchange or return something(s), like I did yesterday? Well, hopefully it's all good and you found some time to stamp and create this weekend, if not we have another {ippity} challenge to help motivate you!!! And if you play along and use {ippity} stamps you may even win a prize.
This week, Kelly is up with the challenge-"resolve to try something new". I don't know about you, but this one had my head spinning. I could think of a million things I would like to try, but time was a factor for me this weekend as I squeezed in some stamping time. I do have a resolution to do a mini album. I've been so inspired by Maren's sweet little books and our own, {ippity} DT extordaire, Eryn! So one day soon, I'm going to whip one of those up!
For today, I resolved to use up some of my stash (this is an ongoing resolution of mine, how about you? lol!) I also decided to give some REAL glitter a whirl!!!! I loooove the look of glitter, but NEVER or RARELY bring it out. I go for the easy stuff-stickles or iridescent ice embossing powder-no mess, no fuss. For my card today I used the sweet, all-purpose set, Because of You!

I first stamped the love word block in my background in Saraha Sand. I then covered a chipboard scalloped frame with some MME dp and stamped the sentiment in the center of it. I had yet to try the sticky tape and glitter trick, so I did that to create my bright, and shiny, colorful strips. Then I decided to add a few glittery hearts, since I had the glitter mess already out! I then finished it off with a button and twine!

From my stash I used-chipboard frame, dp that I've had for over 6 months and went untouched, and glitter that I'd never opened. I think I did pretty good. Now off you go! Stop by the {ippity} Blog for full details of the challenge and the full list of hoppers! and join us in the forum on SCS for chit chat and fun! Hugs, Lisa

  13. YES I do avoid glitter in favor of stickles, too. However, I love using glass microbeads with the tacky tape. Really effective. I love how the glitter really pops on your card! I suppose I need to start using my chipboard instead of hoarding it, too. Thanks for the nudge!
