The Ippity Chick Challenge was a Challenge! And Block Party Card

I'm going to use this card for the Ippity Chick Challenge this week, and I'm going to use the Monday Ippity linky.  Wow, did I struggle to get this card completed.  The idea came quickly.  Making it happen took most of my Sunday afternoon.  I used many different Unity stamp sets, and 1 Ippity stamp set to stamp the various hearts to add texture and variety.  The sentiment is a little hard to read in the photo, but it says, "Forever thankful for YOU".  This card is going to my BFF!

Unity stamp sets used were:  Blossom Soup, Butterfly Garden, Bitty Backgrounds, Urban Chevron, and a woodgrain background.  The Ippity stamp set I used is Thankful for You (thanks Ippity Chick, Maria Levine!)  I used a Creative Memories heart punch, and a Spellbinders Fancy Tags die.  The brad is by Making Memories.  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

The second card in this post is for the Market Street Block Party.  It uses one of my all-time favorite stamps -- the doily.  I love how crisp and clean this image stamps.  I also used Studio Calico's Memoir 6x6 pad.  This is the second one of these cards I've made.  I gave one away awhile ago as part of a card exchange.  I liked it so much I made another one for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day.

And there you have it.  Two cards made on a windy, cloudy Sunday afternoon.


  1. Very pretty Julie! I love how you layered your card in the MSS card, and your other card is so clever! Thanks for linking up with us! - Angelica

  2. These are both so pretty!
