Showing the Versatility of Ippity Stamps

Hello there Ippity Chicks!!

It's Kelly and I am here today to show you how versatile Ippity stamps can be.  But before I do, I want to reiterate what Eva had to say about Eryn joining us as one of the Ippity DT chicks yesterday!  We are so happy about this news and can't wait to work with her!  Welcome Eryn!!  Yippity!!!!

So now I am going to show you how to use one of the Ippity stamps in  a couple of different ways!  Using one stamp, we are going to make a coordinating patterned paper and a dimensional flower.

Sound like fun??

Keep in mind that if you can show your customers that {Ippity} stamps are versatile and can be used for more than one purpose, you will have better success at selling them.  Everyone likes getting more for their money!!

Remember this card that I made the other day?

This is the patterned paper that we are going to recreate today!  Then I also am going to show you how I made the dimensional flower. The original patterned paper is from a collection made by K & Co. called Lemon Drop.  It was serend{ippity}ous that the size of the circles on the patterned paper matched perfectly the center circle on the flower stamp.  But play around with other patterned papers because I am sure that are a lot of them that would work with this and other {Ippity} stamps!

The flower stamp we will be using today is from the {Ippity}Because of You kit.

I have a picture tutorial that will walk you through the process... (Just click on the pictures to enlarge them!)

So there you have it!! Be sure to point out to your customers that these stamps can be used in many different ways and it we think outside the box a little, many more possiblities woud be found!  Our imagination is the only thing holding us back!

I hope that this will jump start you to thinking about extra ways to use your {Ippity} stamps and show to others how versatile they can be.  Got another idea?  I would love to hear about it in the comments section!

I can let you in on a little secret now!!  The Dirty Dozen Fan Club November Gallery is now open to SCS Fan Club members!  I just so happen to know that there are a couple of Ippity projects that you won't want to miss seeing!  You can take a peek at them HERE!  (You must sign up to be a Fan club member to see them!)

In closing, keep this in mind...

Success isn't a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire. (Arnold H Glasgow)  What are you going to do to set yourself apart from the others?  Is that fire burning in you??
