The Holiday Card Workshop is on at Online Card Classes! I’m glad that I could join this year and I’m looking forward to increasing my Holiday card stash significantly as I work up to the mailing and handing out stage!

Here are some cards from Day 1. Jennifer gave some great mass production tips. Now if I could only get my Stampin’ Up! clear stamps to stick to the block! Does anyone have that problem?

Holiday Card Workshop 2012 Day 1

So, some of you may know that I am an Ippity Chick. A Chick is someone who is basically a distributor for Ippity Stamps, part of Unity Stamps. I buy Ippity from Unity and sell it to you, the end customer. I’ve been pretty successful selling Ippity everywhere in the world, even Australia and Europe! I’ve enjoyed it and like the product.

Ippity will be rolled up into the Unity brand soon. 

There will be no more Ippity. No new releases and to my understanding, no real distinction between Ippity and Unity any longer. This is not a sad thing necessarily as many people don’t even know they are different. For those who do and who have been my customers over the years, a big THANK YOU! 🙂

For me, there is some sadness to see it go. I always try to promote Ippity so that I can enable my crafting habits with the extra money that I make from the sales. However, I have to say that it will be nice to use some of my other stamps too! Ippity was always foremost in my mind – must promote by doing samples – so my other stamps have been neglected. I like my other stamps! I look forward to using them more often soon.

So, if you would like to visit my Ippity blog before it goes away, please do! I will be liquidating my entire stock, so let me know if you want a nice discount on some premium red rubber cling mounted stamps. I’ll be doing some updating most likely to the Ippity site in terms of price reductions, but shop now for the best selection. I have EVERY set for sale. Send me an email (andrea at ippitystamps dot com) and tell me what you want and I’ll make you a killer deal. Spread the word!
