H{ippity} Halloween!

It's H{ippity} Hop Monday!

Have you hopped with us before?
It's so fun and very easy and a
great source of project inspiration,
especially if you love to play with Ippity stamps.

Just 'hop' over to the Ippity blog here to see a
list of all the talented designers who have
something to share.

My first little offering is this little Halloween gift tag.
I used Ippity's 'That's Creepy' set.
I love my EK Success bat punch.
The DP is from Basic Grey's 'Eerie' and
'Pyrus' collections.

Next up is another little tag using the same set
as above plus the 'Book It' stamp from Ippity.
Just a little EeRiE shading and some fabby
purple rhinestones make it so simple.

Paige over at CREATE is asking for
Halloween Tags this week, as well as the
Halloween challenge over at Card of the Week
and Wee Memories,
so I will share these there as well.

So here are the stamps I used...

If you know me, whenever I share in
the H{ippity} Hop, I love to offer a good
deal from my very own Ippity shop here.

So what's the deal?

Order both 'That's Creepy' & 'Book It'
for only $22 (includes postage) and get
'Bit of Burlap' for only $3!

If you would like to see 'Bit of Burlap' in action,
here's a taste...

...and if you want to see more, just click here.

As always, if you would like to order these stamps
or any others in my Ippity shop, please email me
directly at
and I will invoice you through PayPal.
I also accept Money Orders from
Walmart and the USPS.

One more personal note....
I had my 7 year old grandson CJ over for
the weekend and had to make an 
'emergency call'
to the Tooth Fairy!
This is the second time he has lost a tooth at our
house (and he's only lost three total).
I'm beginning to think he's wise to it because he
scores pretty well when he lifts up his pillow.

This little tooth made him
five dollars richer!

Have a great Monday and I would
love if you would leave a quick comment to let
me know you stopped by...

Hello Julie;0) Great tags! I have that same bat punch and love it!
Your Grandson is smart;0) I would have held my teeth in place if I got $5.00 from my tooth My daughter recently lost 2 teeth and she wants to keep them. I keep telling her the tooth fairy will come and visit and she says no. She is 8...Not sure how to change her mind;0)

I love love that bat punch, never seen that one over in the UK. Great Halloween creations and I love the background stamp and the addition of the rhinestones. Your grandson is adorable, my children are 10 and 14 and they both still expect the tooth fairy to call, costs me a fortune LOL. Have a good day, Tracy Evans x

cj is adorable-they catch on quick, huh? your cards are lovely--the first card is just fabulous:)

Jen said...

Love both of these cards Julie...and I think I need to get that bat punch! *smile*
Oooh, you're going to be in trouble...when the 'tooth fairy' used to give my son $5 for each tooth, his friends parents were mad at me...heehee..they told their kids my son must have a rich tooth fairy...hahaha..not the case! Enjoy!

Anonymous said...

Look at you with your spooky tags! Love them both!

WOW, $5!!! Wish my tooth fairy was that generous! :)

Lisa said...

Your stuff is so fabulous, as always!

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

LOOOOOOVE your tags:) SO CUTE! You are so creative--and I just love that bat punch!! And you know how I feel about Halloween--but now I'm inspired:) LOVE visiting here--just wish I could visit more often (in person, telephone, etc.)!!!

Also--when kids lose their teeth--that freaks me out! I remember when I lost one of mine--OUCH! NEVER again (well...hopefully not now!)....I'm glad he got something out of it though:) Always fun to get something under the pillow...although, I remember a shiny nickel or dime....$5!! Prices went up:) Maybe I should lose a tooth:)
