PDCC76 with Sarah Anderson

I've done it again...I've combined two challenges. The Play Date Cafe challenge this week uses a bright color palette of bright green, bright blue and sky blue. Check out the awesome inspirational photo:

Also, over at Moxie Fab World there is a card sets challenge so I decided to combine the two! Seeing how I got a nice little package from a friend in the mail yesterday with my very own first sets (yes I said sets) of Ippity by Unity stamps I decided to give one of the sets a whirl for my project. This project is CAS and to my amazement, the cards ended up being one layer! Stamps and ink all the way and nothing more. Here is what the little box looks like that hosts my four cards and envelopes.

I didn't have template, so I made my own using my scor-pal. The top flap was punched with a scallop punch from Martha Stewart Crafts and the label punch is from Stampin' Up! I stamped the flower in soft sky and then punched out the label shape, adhered it to wild wasabi cardstock, cut it out and stamped the sentiment in black. I attached the top half of the label with tacky tape to the top flap and added some velcro to the bottom half so it would close. The bottom half of the box is randomly stamped with a spattered stamp in the color pacific point. A punched butterfly was the final touch. The box open looks like this:

For the cards I used naturals white cardstock and stamped one card with the flower in pacific point and another with soft sky. The third card has the leaf stamped in wild wasabi and on the fourth card I used the flower with all three colors. The sentiments are all the same on the cards.

I must say after using these stamps I think I'm in love with Ippity Stamps now lol and I can't wait to try out my other 3 sets :)
