Gettin Hippity with Ippity? I AM

oh yeh, you read it right... I'm their Guest Designer! Go over to Get Hippity with Ippity to read more about it, err mmm me ;-)

This week their challenge was "Flower with a Leaf" but the flower I chose has two leaves, sure hope that's ok especially since I LOVE this Ippity stamp that comes in the Bloom & Simplify set that I received fairly recently.

Come play along with us!

nope, I didn't do amazing coloring on this flower, stem & leaves.  Here's what I did, using StazOn, I stamped the image on some plastic packaging as well as some Vanilla cardstock.  Next I fussy cut the flower & stem apart.  Then I dripped two shades of red on the flower portion and one shade of green on the stem & leaves. From there it was simply using Glue Dots to attach the pieces onto the cardstock.  And oh so pretty!

To top off the flower, I added a brown dew drop.
