First H{ippity} hop of February!

Good morning everyone and happy Ground Hog Day Eve! Are you having fun with the hop yet? Getting loads of inspiration? For this week's hop, i played with the "Because of You" and "Devoted" sets, both of which can be found right here. The patterned paper I used is a beautiful new line by KaiserCraft - I had some scraps left over from a make and take at CHA. This first card is based on a sketch from Stamp TV. I used my favorite embossing powder - the verdigris finish was perfect with the birdcage stamp and was a great match with the papers:



The second card was made for the {ippity}Challenge this week, which was to make a shaped card. I used the opportunity to pull out my new "on the edge" Tim Holtz die to create the shape. Tim was passing these out at the Sizzix booth, and autographing each one. They're very cool and I can't wait till all of them come out. Now that I'm looking at this card closer, I'm thinking I need to add a bit of micro beads to the centers of the flowers!



Now it's time to hop on over to the next blog - you can find the links to this week's participating blogs over at the {ippity} blog!
