H{ippity} Hop..

Hello Monday!
It's that time in the week that we share some yummy projects using our Ippity stamps.. I am so excited for Mondays. This week is hosted by the talented Stephanie and the challenge is to make a Christmas Ornament with your Ippity.
I made these cute hanging ornaments that I have hanging in my Family room.
Christmas Ippity Ornament

I made these Christmas Paper Ball ornaments.. I saw these on a tree at Scrapfest and just loved them.. so I had to give it a try. If you want to try it there are some instructions HERE. I wanted them to hang and had thought to have a greeting on them but went with the snowflakes. Using the Joy Of Season set of Snowflake and one from the Kissmas & Mistletoe. Embossing them in red and black and using some jewels and red pearls.. (Jewel adhesive by Helmar) I had some cute clear beads and with some crafting wire to get that whimsical look. I love how it all turned out.
I also did this fun Country card.. I love this new Ippity Set Farm Fresh. Using the Unity Hip Hop Sketch HHSC34.
Good Morning Sunshine
