H{ippity} Hop Blog Hop 12/28/09

Good morning everyone and welcome to my first ever H{ippity} Hop post! I'm so excited to be a part of this fun parade of projects featuring ippity stamps! Please stop by the Ippity Blog for the list of names of the talented and inspiring ladies who will be sharing their work with you today!

I used the Kissmas and Mistletoe stamp set for todays card, which was based on CPS sketch # 93:



The background is snowflake embossed vellum. I white embossed the snowman on grungeboard, cut it out and inked with broken china distress ink. The snowflake has a light coating of broken china distress stickles, and I finished it off with a spritz of marshmallow glimmer mist, just to add a hint of sparkle. Thanks for visiting, have fun on the rest of the hop!
