I HEART {ippity} Design Team Blog HOP

Hi there and WELCOME to the I HEART {ippity} Design Team Blog HOP!

If you are not familiar with {ippity} then you are missing out! {ippity} is a line of rubber stamps manifactured by Unity Stamp Co. The {ippity} line is a separate from the Unity line but has the same wonderful quality, it is marketed though Unity Endorsed {ippity} Chicks, reps for {ippity}
Heather is an {ippity} CHICK and would love to be yours! To order {ippty} just go to the Unity Website and on the left hand side clock {ippity} - Pick a CHICK & Order. That will take you to the {ippity} chick page where you can pick Heather Flaherty as your {ippity} CHICK.

And this is what I created especially for the Blog Hop today using two totally gorgeous I HEART {ippity} stamp sets .....
I hand-made the flowers by using the flower from "Simplify" stamps...
I used the stamps here with mixed media - gesso, modelling paste, paint, ink, etc.
I cut out this cute basket from the pattern paper.
Before I adhered it on my layout I stamped "Life is Simple"...
"Sunday Picnic" collection
"Life's Portrait" collection
"Seside Retreat" collection
"Sunday Picnic" Dazzle Me Gems
