Happy Monday!
Time for another IPPITY Hop.
I'm sharing two cards that I made for week #3 and #4 challenges.

Card 1 Supplies:
Kraft Cardstock which I stamped with white ink and spritzed with Turquoise Glimmer Mist
Stamps:  IPPITY "A Bit of Burlap" and "Moon Beams and Heart Strings" sentiment, leaves from "Now & Always" 
Ink: Papertrey Ink: Fresh Snow, Unity Water Lily Green and Marvy: Jungle Green
Flowers: yellow from PaperStudio, pink is a Basic Grey "Bloomer" and the other two I made using coffee filters, Papertrey Ink flower dies and glimmer mist
(thanks to Ippity Chick Lynn M. for explaining how to make these, she always has the shabbiest, chic-est cards on her blog-go visit her and wish her a Happy Birthday!)

Card 2 Supplies:
Cardstock: American Crafts
Stamps:  IPPITY  "Gurnsey Gingham" and "Moon Beams and Heart Strings"
sentiment "how you doin'"
Ink:  Unity 'Noir'  and Papertrey Ink 'Fresh Snow'
I tried stamping the gingham stamp with white on colored cardstock, love the subtle effect.
Fiskars Border Punch
Twine: the Twinery
Button: Papertrey Ink
Copic Markers to color in hearts
3M Foam Tape to "pop" the little awning at the top
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the Hop today!

I'm lovin' how you took the challenge and totally stepped out of the box with it -- the flowers are fantastic on Card#1 and your coloring and use of those heartstrings AND keeping it "clean" is beautiful! P.S. Glad you like my musical references--it's a great muse to get my creativi-tay movin' (and groovin'! hehe).
