Butterfly Birthday!

Hello to all of you and hope you are having a wonderful Friday!!

So did Eryn's post yesterday knock your socks off?  I am amazed at how she was able to make such a fun and fresh album and incorporate so many {Ippity} stamps into it!! I hope that she got the ideas in your head turning as much as she did mine!!

Kelly here today with another card share for you!  By now many of you have started to receive your {Ippity} stamps (Woohoo!!) and your fabulous creations are making their way into the SCS Gallery.  I LOVE what I am seeing!!  You guys are awesome!!  (But actually I already knew that!)  :-)

I created a bright and cheery birthday card for you today and used several of the {Ippity} sets in the process!  Stamps from this card come from {Ippity} sets...
  • Devoted (butterfly)
  • Just Wanted to Say (frame for sentiment)
  • Life's Little Moments (number collage, happy birthday block)
And the DP is also from the papers released with the November collection.  All are from My Mind's Eye.

Here is a closeup of the butterfly from the Devoted stamp set (love this Tanis.. thanks!) I colored it lightly with my Copics and then added an opaque white pen to the hollow dots.  I also matted the butterfly in black cardstock and popped it up with some pop dots to really make it stand out.

I created the strip of numbers simply by stamping the numbers collage stamp from the Life's Little Moments collection three times in a row using my Stamp-a-ma-jig.  It is a stamp I see myself using plenty of times!!

To create the Happy Birthday sentiment,  I first stamped my frame from the Just Wanted to Say stamp set and then by masking off parts of the Happy Birthday stamp from the same set, and stamping in red and blue inks, I could make this a two colored title to better coordinate with my card.  I added the little bit of extra bling in the way of rhinestones to both the title and the butterfly!

Can't wait to see more of what you guys create with these fabulous sets, so I hope I have inspired you to get busy stamping! Please share with us a link to your creations over on the {Ippity} forum at SCS.  We want to see what you are creating!  Also, I hope you are also playing along with the SCS challenges each day using your {Ippity} stamps.  These awesome stamps are one secret we don't want to keep to ourselves!!

Be sure to use the key word Ippity when uploading your works of art so we can all find them!

Thanks for looking, and please enjoy the rest of your day!! Eva will be back tomorrow with some more {Ippity} eye candy!!
