FRIENDS WITH FLAIR USING IPPITY STAMPS

 
I decided to play along with the Ippity challenges this week, so just used Ippity stamps on my cards.  These two cards really didn't fit any of the challenges, but still used my Ippity stamps.  Since I still need some more Christmas cards, that's what I concentrated on.  I don't have the Ippity Christmas stamps, I had to be creative.  On this card, I used a one of the giant Basic Grey ornament stickers from the Figgy Pudding collection as the background.  I accented with two smaller ornaments and then the greeting stickers from Creative Imaginations. This stamp is one of my favorite quotes and I love the distressed look of this stamp.  I used Frayed Burlap distress ink for the stamping and then distressed it with old paper. 

On this card, I used the journaling block as my background for the snowman sticker from Creative Imaginations.  The ornament stickers are from Basic Grey.  The ribbon is from Oriental Trading Company, the sentiment is from WeR Memory Keepers, and the brads are from my stash.  The background paper is from WeRMemory Keepers.  I used distress ink for my stamp.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of the hop and have a restful weekend before the busy week of Thanksgiving.
