Unity Friends with Flair Friday!

TGIF! And Happy Memorial Day weekend!!

Today I want to share a card I made for the SCS VSN from last weekend. This challenge for this first card was to make a criss cross card.

Using the kits "Now & Always" and " Music of my Heart" both by {ippity} and available in my Etsy shop TyKatSupplies, here is what I came up with:

I love how this turned out a very simple blue and green card. I suppose this can go to either a male (sure even with the flower) or female.

********************************************************************************

I created the girl in the "She Art" style. But check out her skirt, that is using my {ippity} stamps and muslin! Doesn't she look cute? The second page I created a pocket and put a distressed style tag in it. My words I wrote using pen and ink.



Here is a close up of the girl:

{ippity} - CUPPY CAKES!



It's Wednesday and sketch day over at Splitcoaststampers. I received my order of {ippity} today so I had to dig in. I actually ended up clicking in last week's sketch by mistake so that is the one I played along with! HA!

Here is the sketch:



Using the {ippity} kit called "Cuppy Cakes" here is what I came up with:


I paper pieced the cupcake using a 6x6 paper pad by Fancy Pants. Here is a close up:



So what do you think of this set? I have one available and didn't put it in my ETSY SHOP yet.

But if you want you can buy it here now! I have one ready to go! If others are interested I will get some ordered asap!

{ippity} Monday!!

Happy Monday!!! I am going to try and get on a regular blogging schedule. And Monday will be {ippity} Mondays!!!

Wednesday will be Queen Kat Designs Wednesday and Friday will be Unity Friends with Flair Friday and Saturday Just Us Girls Challenge. Tuesday and Thursday will be open for fun! This week on Tuesday be sure to swing on by for the Queen Kat Triple Tiara challenge!

So have you heard? Unity Stamp Co. has simplified the {ippity} chicks program and there will be only 50 {ippity} chicks, worldwide!! I am honored to be one and hope if you are looking for some {ippity} stamps you will pick me as your {ippity} chick! I currently have 4 kits listed for sale in my Etsy shop called TYKAT SUPPLIES! BUT never fear by the end of the week I hope to have lots more in and then on JUNE 5 there will be a fun {ippity} release you won't want to miss.

In the meantime if I don't have a kit that you really want please feel free (anytime) to CONTACT me so I can help you out!!

Now onto a 2 page art journal spread I made yesterday:




Close up of the girl:


Tag:


I really enjoy playing around in a journal. There are no rules you can just do what you want and who cares how it comes out. I like to use it as a chance to explore or experiment. I used acrylic paints in my background and sprayed with glimmer mists. All my stamping is done using Stazon inks, except for the tag where I used Distress inks.

The girl is based on the "She Art" class I took with Christy Tominlinson. Her skirt is made out of white muslin material in which I stamped {ippity} stamps on it using Stazon inks. Then I pleated it together as you see and used the Tim Holtz tiny attacher to keep it together.

The {ippity} kits I used on this page are: Where you should be and Love in Return.

Be sure to check out my {ippity} pages up top here on my blog. As I will update those to keep you posted about all things {ippity}.

Thanks for stopping by!

Ippity Tuesday

Have you been over to My Unity Place yet? You need to hop on over there because there is alot of fun Unity/{ippity} stuff going on. Currently they have 4 scrapbooking challenges for National Scrapbook Day which was this past Saturday. But there is still time to participate HERE.

One of the challenges was to use a black and white photo so with my {ippity} Stamps here is what I came up with:

I thought some Tim Holtz papers would work well with a black and white photo so that is what I used underneath the photo, just a random collage of papers. The text paper being from Stampin Up. The {ippity} kit used here is called Love in Return.

Did you know the line of {ippity} by Unity is getting a revamp and it's wonderful. There will be only about 50 Unity Endorsed {ippity} chicks and I am one of them!! SO if you love UNITY I promise you will love {ippity}.

I will have my {ippity} kits in my Etsy Shop TYKATSUPPLIES. So be sure to watch out for that. Here on my blog I also have an {ippity} page.
Here is the full LOVE IN RETURN kit (click to take you to my Etsy page for purchase):


I have one in my hands ready to ship immediately. If you are that lucky person to grab this kit right away be sure to indicate in the notes upon check out that you got to my shop via my blog and I will include a free gift with purchase!!

If you miss out never fear just let me know and I can get some ordered up for you!

Well that's all for now!!

Be sure to stay tuned as I will start some regular blog posts each week showcasing Ippity.

I would love to be YOUR {ippity} chick!!

National Scrapbook Day Unity Challenges

What a busy weekend! Happy Mother's Day to all celebrating today!

Yesterday was National Scrapbook Day and Unity was celebrating with some fun challenges over at My Unity Place!

I am hosting one of these challenges as well which is super exciting! My challenge is called "Material Girl", yes since I named the challenge the song is still in my head! The challenge is simple and it's to use material/fabric on your layout! Only layouts using your Unity/Ippity Stamps are allowed for this challenge.
Here is what I came up with:



I made fabric flowers in the lower right corner. I used white muslin and a Unity stamp from the Devotion Collection: Love Never Fails. I created a bloom using the same technique that Lesley Langdon used in her tutorial a few weeks back. The dark pink flower was created using the burnt flower technique.

Come swing on by MY UNITY PLACE and check out the forum for all the National Scrapbook Day challenges! You have all week to participate and a chance to win a Melody Ross/Unity Kit!
