H{ippity} Hop!!!! with a Challenge.

Did you know each week we list a challenge in conjunction with the
H{ippity} Hop? This week we've got a kind of color challenge, ready??? How about Black, Neutral + one other color!!!!! Be sure to upload your card to SCS and use keyword IHHC7.
it's EASY to play along:
1. Simply create an {ippity} project with black, a neutral and 1 other color
2. THEN upload it to the Splitcoast Stampers gallery by midnight on Sunday {the 24th} with keyword: IHHC7
3. Post it in This Thread so we can ALL see your pretty creation
4. We will randomly choose a winner next week and post it in a new thread

No shocker, I used Kraft for my neutral. I decided to use black as my accent color-I love just little hints of black behind almost anything-it always seems so eye catching. My plus one color was razzleberry!


I kept to a CAS layout and used my fave heart image from
Life's Little Moments and clear embossed it on the kraft cs to make a background. The sentiment and little birdie are both from
Straight from the Heart!

If you want some {ippity} go ahead and order here!

Here's a detailed shot of the image panel.

See that band at the top of my card? I confess it covers up something I didn't like. I thought those hearts were up too high on my card base, so I added the strip of kraft, then tied some linen thread on and added the piercing. I like the subtle way it adds another demension to my card without actually adding bulk! Can't wait to see what the rest of the {ippity} chicks come up with! Off to be inspired! Full list of participants HERE! Hugs, Lisa

  20. Very nice! I like how sometimes a "mistake" forces an improvisation that ends up making the design that much better.
