Maria Levine's Got {ippity}? Design Team Blog Hop

Hi all! I have some fun news to share! Maria Levine (my fellow JUGs DT member) is an {ippity} Chick and she's created a design team and asked me to join it! Of course I said yes!! She's one of the girls selling {ippity}, a line of stamps endorsed by the Unity Stamp Company, and Maria would like to be your {ippity} Chick! All you have to do is go to this site to order from her! It's that simple!

Today, Maria Levine's Got {ippity}? Design Team is celebrating the creation of this team with a Got {ippity}? blog hop!  You should have arrived from Maria's blog.  If not, stop by there to meet Maria and begin the hop!  We decided to make tags using some {ippity} stamps.  I created this little ditty using the bird from Music of My Heart set and the sentiment from Now and Always.  I started by using a technique I learned at a Wendy Vecchi class using Ranger Inks.  I used Broken China and Peeled Paint inks for this technique.  I squished some ink onto a non-stick craft sheet and spritzed it with Perfect Pearls Mist in Green Patina (it gives the tag some shimmer which you can't see).  Then I just placed the tag into the wet ink and dried it with a heat tool.  Then I embossed the bird and sentiment with black embossing powder.  I added a pearl flourish from Want 2 Scrap and a flower made from a black chipboard piece topped with some primas and a black pearl center.  I finished it off with some sheer ribbons.

Maria is giving away a prize package of some {ippity} stamps and some other goodies to one person who comments on all of the DT blogs!  So get commenting!  You should head over to Martha's blog now to see her fabulous tag!  Here is the lineup in case you get lost.

Lisa Kind (me!)

I hope you enjoy the hop and then go to Maria's {ippity} page and order something new for yourself!  Think of it as a Valentine, cause you know your Valentine won't know you'd rather have stamps than flowers and chocolates!  LOL!!  Also, check out her fan page on Facebook and like us there.  Thanks for stopping by today!
