A Truly Scrumptious H(ippity) Hop

 
I made this card for the Truly Scrumptious Challenge #50.  I used Basic Grey, DCWV, and Bazzill papers for this card.  The die that I used for the sentiment is one of Tim Holtz' dies by Sizzix.  I used Prima flowers and some bling from my craft stash.  I used some Adirondack ink for the sentiment and then used distress ink on the various parts of the card.   The sentiment is part of the "Devoted" set by Ippity in the Fall, 2009 release. Pleased with the results on this one--it was a little iffy at first, but after I played around, it turned out OK.



I made this card for a challenge, but KIND OF missed the deadline--Oh well, still like the results.  The challenge was to use black and white with a touch of purple--from Off the wall Craftiness.  I used one of the fabulous butterflies from the "Butterfly Beauty" Unity kit--love those butterflies.  The sentiment is from the fabulous Ippity set, "Devoted" from the Fall, 2009 release--just love this set.  I stamped the butterfly on purple Bazzill cardstock AND on vellum and cut them out.  I layered them, only gluing in the middle and creasing them so the would look like they were flying.  I put pearls down the middle.  The frame is a die by Sizzix and I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on it.  I stamped my sentiment using Ranger Adirondack ink and then used my Distress ink and ink tool to add some purple to the frame and sentiment piece.  I used some ivory ribbon on the left hand side of the card.  I used my Stampin up butterfly embosslit to make some little butterflies out of vellum to add to the card.  I SO love these little butterflies!

Enjoy the rest of your hop and stay warm this week!
