Got {ippity} with Maria Levine Blog Hop

The oh so sweet Maria Levine; {ippity} chick, chose me to be her Guest Designer for the month of June. Maria is one of a select group of ladies who sell the exclusive line of {ippity} stamps by Unity Stamp. Co. If you are interested in buying any of the great {ippity} stamp sets, she's your chick! Check out her FB page "GOT {ippity}" HERE.

Maria kindly sent me a wonderful {ippity} prize pack for being her Guest Designer. Unfortunately the mail system did not cooperate and I didn't get it in time to use the stamps she sent on these cards. Luckily for me I already own quite a few {ippity} stamp sets and so I was able to make my cards for this hop.

Anyways, summer is upon us and why not get in the summer mood by making some cards Here is my first card. I used the cardabilities sketch #56 for the layout. I think I like how this one came together.
 Supplies used: Stamps: {ippity} by Unity Stamp Co.; Patterned Papers: Simple Stories; Cardstock: Bazzill, Xpress It; Sentiment Sticker: Simple Stories; Twine: The Twinery; Button: Stampin Up; Markers: Copics E31, E33, BG0000, BG000, BG00, BG01, Y21, YG03; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Misc: Brads.
My second card is made with the same papers as the first. I fussed around with this card for a looong time, and I'm still not sure that I love it, but I got it done! lol
Supplies used: Stamps: {ippity} by Unity Stamp Co.; Patterned Papers: Simple Stories; Cardstock: Bazzill; Scallop border sticker: Doodlebug; Embossing Powder: American Crafts; Cloud Punch: Fiskars; Misc: Buttons, dimensional adhesive.
The sentiment was actually longer than this, but I didn't want to use all the words so I cut the sentiment up and used only the bits that I wanted.

Finally I used one of my favorite lines right now Dear Lizzy Neapolitan by AC for my last card.

Stamps sets I used for these cards...
