I've been a busy little bee...with Ippity!

I received my first set of stamps from I Heart {Ippity} this  Unity Stamp Company brings beauty to red rubber like no other (no rhyme intended).  Such fine detail, it's like an expensive piece of artwork!  Click on the link above to view the latest and greatest of Unity Stamps.
♥ Here are the stamps that I'll be working with for July ♥
 This stamp came by itself, so my initial intent was to simply stamp the image onto a piece of paper so that I could share it with you.  Well, I grabbed a shipping tag and of course the first impression was not great, so I flipped it over and stamped the other side...not so great either, but better (you know how that is).  The next tag turned out just right!  With the coloring of the tag (like old parchment) and the quote in a soft brown, I just couldn't leave it at, off to work I went.  
After stamping the image:
1- Distress the edges of the tag with various inks (I used Tim Holtz' Broken China, Fired Brick, Walnut Stain  and Mustard Seed).  Be sure to begin blending from outside the tag inward
2- Machine stitch around the perimeter of the tag
3- Remember that first stamping that I did? I used my water-color pens and colored the flowers royal blue.  Then I cut them out and attached them to the tag by simply stitching with a brown thread through the center.  
4- Add a little glue to the flowers with a glue pen and then glitter...adds just a hint of shimmer, but not too much.
5- Remember that first stamping that I did? (ha!  I let nothing go to waste!)  With a black ink, I stamped the image again and then cut the words "possible" and "believe" from it.  I inked around the edges in the Walnut Stain and lightly distressed the front with Broken China.  I attached them over the original words using foam dots.
6- Add a pretty ribbon and jute to the end
It looks so pretty on my wonderfully patina'd flower frog :) 

And here is the fabulous SET that I received
New Season, New Wonder
 I'm actually working on a card as a I blog...let the glitter dry, type, let the glue dry, type LOL  I will get pictures of my other I Heart {Ippity} projects uploaded tomorrow.
Now, as crazy as this may sound, I'm off to start another blog post...gotta share the other neat-O thing I did today :P
See ya in a minute!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV.

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
