Ippity Stamps Guest Designer

Hello my dear friends!!  Hope everyone had a super day today!!  This month my friend Heather at Paper Crafters Anonymous asked me to be the Guest Designer for their Creative team for the I Heart {ippity} stamps.  They are super adorable stamps!!  This month I'll be working with the Now & Forever stamp set featured below.

I made this card using the cute butterfly and the sentiment "Thinking of you now and always".  Isn't the buttefly super cute!?!  I used Glossy Accents on my butterfly to give it some dimension on the card front.

Directions for my card:
1. Cut a card 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 out of Bazzill cardstock.  I love Bazzill cardstock!  As a matter of fact, it's just about the only cardstock I use.  I used Grenadine for the base of my card.
2.  Cut a piece of Bazzill cardstock for the middle layer 4 1/4 x 5 1/4.  I used Almond Cream.
3. Cut a piece of Bazzill cardstock for the outer layer 4 x 5.  I used Raspberry Splash.
4. Glue all the layers together with your favorite adhesive.
5. Using your favorite white inking pen, ink a "stitch" around the edge.
6. Stamp your butterfly image on the top right hand corner and using your favorite black liner, draw the flying pattern.
7. Cut out a strip of Bazzill cardstock about 1 inch by 4 inch to layer your sentiment on.  I used Guacamole from Bazzill, of course.....
8. Stamp your sentiment on a piece of white cardstock about 3/4 inch by 3 1/4 inch and adhere to the top of the green strip.
9.  Put Glossy Accents on the inside of your butterfly stamp for dimension.

I hope you love using the Ippity stamps as much as I do.  They are super cute!  Thanks for checking out my card!
