Don't Forget White with 1

The challenge is coming to an end over at White with 1, but if you haven't already you still have time to put in your entry.  And there are some great prizes up for grabs, including this Ippity stamp set.

The challenge this month is White + Grey + Masking.  Go on, have a go.  And here are some samples of what you can do with the above stamp set, it is really versatile.
On this page I have used the "Original" circle and clear embossed it down one side of the Kraft coloured background.  Then sponged Distress Inks over the top.  I love that effect.
And the "10 things" stamp is so cute.  You can use it with the heading or without, it is spaced enough to cut it off or leave it out when inking.
This was a present for one of the teachers at school.  I used the gorgeous frame stamp to embellish the front.  The flower is cut with felt and a Papertrey Ink die {Beautiful Blooms II #1}
I have shown this page before, but decided to share it again to show how different the two pages are with the same stamp set.  

See, here is the "Original" stamp again.
And on this photo I stamped the quote with Stazon ink.  Such a great stamp set.  Be sure to head on over and check out the challenge at White with 1.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells

Time to crack out the Christmas Carols, December is here.  To tell you the truth I usually have it all out well before now but somehow December crept up on me.  So I am pretending that I was waiting for it to start before I decorate the house.  LOL.

I HAVE been having fun with Ippity's Christmas set though (as you have well seen over the last few posts).  And today was no exception.  I want to put cute tags on all my gifts this year and while I would like to be uniform and have them all matching...........well, that is just not for me.  I like to experiment and play so everyone will get something different.  I am sure they won't mind.

This is using the snowflakes from the Season of Joy set.  And guess what???  I have this set ON SALE while stocks last.  It is normally $30 and for a limited time it is now $25 (while stocks last). So if you would like this set to come out to you straight away then click on the Paypal button below the image and I will get it in the post to you immediately.  And if you purchase this stamp set, I will pop in a copy of this tag for you.  Then you will have a sample to help you get started.  How about that?

$30 Now only $25 + p&h

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying some Christmas Creating Fun.

Merry Christmas

The other night I put aside my "jobs" and got busy on my Christmas cards.  I love this stamp set.

I love that it matches Nestabilities and I can cut out the stamped image and layer it on a die cut.  Here is the card I made by doing just that.

I stamped the mistletoe to match the Teresa Collins papers that I applied to the card front, then layered over with the frame and the sentiment.  I cut out the frame and layered onto a diecut made with Nestabilites Label 13.  I applied Tombow Multi glue around the edge of that diecut and then dipped it into gerrman glass glitter.................LURVE that stuff!!

Don't forget you can get a hold of this stamp set too for your Christmas projects.........and the best thing is the frames can be used all year round.  Just click on the Spring 2010 tab above and purchase the set through Paypal (alternatively just send me an email at scrapalley@gmail.com and we can arrange a direct deposit) and the stamp set will be out to you immediately.

Shaken It Up!

Ok, so I have shaken it up a bit here and have decided that all my crafty goodness made with {ippity} stamps will be posted here.  I had originally decided to have this as a still blog with shopping on this main bit.  But I have changed it around a little and all your shopping can now be done in the tabs along the top of the blog......up there!

So click on a tab, see what is in stock or check out the full page of stamps for each season release to purchase your own {ippity} goodness.  I hope to inspire you, teach you and share with you a whole bunch of things here at {ippity} with Alex.  Be sure to subscribe, follow and check back here often.

Today I want to share with you a mini card that I made for a challenge.

I have used Authentic Man for this little card and I think it would be very cute tied on a man's gift.  This image is perfect for colouring, or you could stamp it onto patterned paper for something different.  I have used jute twine for some "manly" embellishment, it is a favourite of mine lately.  Let me know if you like it, and if you would like this stamp set for yourself, then click on the Summer 2010 tab above for the details.
