H{ippity} Hop Blossom for you and Play Date Cafe~

Hello {ippity} peeps! If you want to see all the {ippity} goodness, make sure to see the list of hoppers at the {ippity}blog!

I'm sharing a card that I made for Lisa's {ippity} challenge, IHHC28....to create a a single layer card with NO bows, pop dots, or layers. So to add some dimension I used my craft knife to pop out the petals (no pop dots), and sponged the french blue chalk ink around the white embossed blossom.  Then I hand embossed a circle around the blossom (hmmm...I think I need a nestie or something).
From Unity and {ippity} Projects

I also made this for Julie's color challenge at the Play Date Cafe, PDCC #34...black, white and splash of blue!

Stamps used: {ippity} Now and Always
Ink: Colorbox French Blue Chalk, Palette Noir
Accessories:  NONE, but used craft knife to pop out the petals!

Thank you so much for hopping by...I'm on my way to hop to everyone's blogs too...have fun!

p.s.  If you want to order some {ippity}, send me an email at jenstampin4u at aol dot com...I'd be glad to take your order and send you some surprise goodies too! *smile*
