>>> H{ippity} Hop <<<

Welcome to my {ippity} blog, a blog I set up especially for {ippity} stamps. Since discovering Unity stamps, I became a convert and since then, a fervent user of their stamps. When {ippity} came out, not surprising, I ended up not only collecting them but selling them too.

This is my first (and certainly not the last) H{ippity} Hop. I certainly had fun playing with the stamp sets.

I created a few canvas as Xmas pressies for my relatives. This was one of them, using stamp images from Life's Little Moments.

The background was done using cosmic shimmer and Tim Holtz' mask. The 'live, laugh, love' image came from Simply Home stamp set. The 'butterfly' image is from Devoted set.

Here's a tag I created using {ippity} stamps. I enjoy making tags as I do give them out often, especially when sending out birthday cards etc. They are easy to create and so much possibilities to play with.

Stamped images from Life's Little Moments and Devoted sets.

Stamped images from Devoted and Simply Said sets. Background sponged using distressed inkpads and spritzed with water.

Thanks for dropping by! Have a Happy New Year! TTFN!

>>> On Display: Because Of You <<<

Having examined the images on this set, I knew I had to use it for a project I had in mind:

I created this canvas for my SIL and her partner and this particular set came in handy:

The canvas was sprayed with glimmer mist using a glimmer mist stencil. The background image was stamped on tissue paper and adhered to the canvas to give it some texture. Swirls were created using sticklers. As much as I like Prima's swirls, they are just far too costly. The lovebirds in the cage just sums up their relationship perfectly!

>>> On Display: Kissmas & Mistletoe <<<

This is my all time favourite Xmas stamp. I can still see myself using it way after Xmas is over. It literally contains all images relating to snow, Xmas, winter themes! I used them in a LO as seen here:

I've used a tone-on-tone stamping for the snowflakes. Made use of the trees as embellishments and added a mistletoe to finished it off. Patterned papers are from Lilibee Vintage Poppy collection.

Created a card using Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses collection. Absolutely adore the mistletoe image.

Update on the stamp sets:
Just Wanted To Say, Straight From The Heart & Life's Little Moments are out of stock at the moment. I will be ordering more next month so if you're interested, email me to reserve a set. The rest are still available for immediately delivery.

I had a bit of fun with this set:

Here's what I've created:

The photo was professionally taken and I used it to create this little canvas so that I could hang it in my craft room.

A friend of mine asked me to create a canvas for her relative and she chose this particular stamp set.

She did the colouring of the stmaped images and I created this canvas based on her request.

More samples coming out now that I've got the whole sets!
