A Loving Hip Hop!

Hehe! I just couldn't resist! Since today's Hip Hop is featuring the fabulous new August Incentive Kit "Sending My Love", I decided to dedicate this post to just that...LOVE! If you sign up to be a Unity Kit of the Month member during the month of August you will get this kit free! Before I move on, you should have hopped over here from the very talented Robyn. If you didn't, make sure you start at the Unity blog!

Ok, now onto the details! I have two fun projects to show you today! The first project is this card. I used the ADORABLE mailbox as my main image and I paired it with some Honey Pie dp from Cosmo Cricket! The arrows on the paper reminded me of cupid so I just knew that I needed to use it! :D Anyway, I stamped the image on watercolor paper and then used my SU! markers and blender pen to color it in. I added some stickles to the flag, butterflies, and grass since I didn't want them to be black. I then sponged the edges of my paper with some Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink. I sewed around three edges of the card and threw in a button for some added texture.

The next project I have for you is a little gift bag that compliments the card! I used my Fancy Favor Bigz Die to punch out the bag, put it together, and closed it up with some ribbon. I then stamped the sentiment and punched it out with my circle punch. I stamped the envelope on some dp, cut it out, and popped it up on dimensionals. The circle was then layered on some chocolate chip card stock and I applied rhinestones around the entire thing!

Well, that's it for my projects! Next on the hop is that very creative Heather! Now, since I decided to dedicate this post to LOVE I am going to share some of the things I love with you!

My husband!
My family!My friends!
My job!
The mountains!4-Wheeling!

and...STAMPING!

Now that's not ALL I love, it's just a short list. Now you have a glimpse into my life and I hope you enjoyed it!
