H{ippity} Hop

Hello, friends! Welcome to the H{ippity} Hop!!


This will be a quick post--my grandma is visiting from Indiana!!


My first card is my take on the IHHC16 challenge--to use chipboard on my card. I know what you are thinking, "Where is the chipboard!?" Well...the background/base of my card is the chipboard! I have included a before pic so you can see how I use it as the background. I love using these boards as my base--it makes a fun shape, and they are REALLY sturdy! I used my Ippity What Matters Most set for the house and sentiment. I also used Unity's Spring Unity for "welcome". I paper pieced each of the houses--wow! Love paper piecing! So this card fits nicely into the Moxie Fab challenge--Picking Up the Pieces. All the papers were from my scrap pile!! Soon, I won't have any scraps left:}
My next card uses a lot of Unity stamps....I know this is a Ippity hop....but I couldn't resist sharing this! I did use Ippity's Just Wanted to Say set for the sentiment--I use that set the MOST! Love it! I used Unity's Where You Are set by Donna Downey. I love those birds--kind of like male and female...plus I added feathers again! I love feathers! You can't really see them--they are white under the tails. This card is for the All Things Unity challenge. We were to use one of the following: the color green [check], scraps [check- everything was from my scrap paper], or something recycled [check--what is recycled?? The masking tape on my "tag"! I used old masking tape that I used for holding down a project to cut with a knife....super fun!!]. 
This is a must::: go check out the other Ippity creations HERE! And don't forget to leave some love

Until next time~
