H{ippity} Hop Blog Hop 1/11/2010 : 1 stamp, 2 looks

Happy Monday morning and welcome to another H{ippity} Hop Blog Hop to start the week off! This week I decided to play with the tree from the Simply Home set, and created 2 cards based on the same sketch, CPS 149 from Card Positioning Systems. My goal was to get a totally different look using the same basic design. For the first card I decided to go monochromatic (which to me almost always means green...) I used a quickie glue pen and some loose glitter on the tree and added a sentiment from the "Just Wanted to Say" kit.



For the second card, I did a bit of simple masking and added the cow and the sheep from the "Simply Home" kit. A bit of speckles and some inking gave this card a totally different feel.



Thanks for stopping by, I love having visitors and your comments make my day so much brighter! Make sure you check out the other ladies sharing their {ippity} awesomeness: you'll find the full listing of blogs participating in the blog hop on the {ippity} blog, right here!
