That's How Thursday and Hip Hop!!

HIP HOP.. Hi everyone.

I am sure you have all had a great time checking out all the wonderful creations on the Hip Hop!!

I am so happy to show you my That's How Thursday project today,

I hope it gives you some inspiration to make your own.
Now if you did the hop you would have seen my card today.

I am just loving this Fall For You Ippity set of stamps.

You can do so many wonderful things with it, and I am going to show

you how I made the background of my card.

Seeing that it is FALL and that is also the theme for the Ippity Challenge this week (IHHC40), I have another fun project to show you. I know alot of you already do this with your stamps.. but have you done it on a full 12x12 sheet of paper..

I am talking about making your own


Using some of the great fun stamps in the Fall For You set and also some of my own stamps.. recycling some rubber .
Here we go!!

Fall background stamp tutorial

step one: gather your materials, plain white paper, memento ink, unity coloured ink and the leaf stamps from the Ippity Fall For You set.

step two: now in any random stamping, just stamp the sheet of white cardstock.. you can let your imagination just go wild here.. and it is okay if it doesn't come out like the full image.. it makes it more authentic. Now also start to colour in your image using your colours of copic markers.

I love these bright colours.

Step three: if you are in the Unity KOM you get alot of left over rubber.. well take some of that rubbber and make you own circles.. one small. if you are not just use the rubber on the eraser side of a pencil.

step four: make another in a larger size.. these don't have to be perfect circles,

I just cut them by hand , until I got the size and shape I wanted.

Step Five: Now,you will have your own DESIGNER IPPITY PAPER!!
Just take it and make cards or use it in your next layout.

I hope you give this a try, you can go wild with all the fabulous stamps Ippity offers.
Have a wonderful day. Hip Hop Happy Thursday..
