Hopping with {ippity}

Hello and welcome to another Monday {ippity}hop.  I have a couple cards to share with you today.  First is a card inspired by the Color throwdown challenge this week.  I loved this combination!  I pulled out the "Authentic Man" set for this - I haven't used this gorgeous set nearly enough!  Papers are from Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon.  I finished it off with some twine and beat up brads:


Next is a card based on the color challenge at Just Us Girls - Black, Cream and Kraft.  How can you go wrong with this elegant combo?  Elegant- so much so that I decided to finally ink up the chandelier in the "Regal Greetings" set.  Graphic 45 paper for the background, some beautiful vintage looking lace from KaiserCraft, a pearl and some black Diamond stickles finish it off:



All {ippity} stamp sets are available for purchase right Here!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!  Till next time...
