Welcome to my very first Hip Hop! I am this month's Unity Guest Designer and I couldn't be more excited! :D I have loved Unity since I first saw their Giggle Grove set and now have a serious addiction! You should be hopping over from the very talented AJ (whom I met at CHA and let me tell you, not only is she hilarious but she is super sweet)! If you did not come to me from AJ's blog, make sure you start here! This week's Hip Hop is featuring the fabulous new Store Kit of the Month 100% Happiness! You can only pick it up in stores so if your store doesn't carry Unity, make sure you ask them to...actually...just go ahead and beg! :D To see current store locations click here.
For my first card I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try. I used some Cosmo Cricket Early Bird paper for the background and can't decide whether I think it is too busy or not! I also decided to sew every strip on and it kind of tones it down a bit (I think). Haha! I used the sweet strawberry image for this card and punched them out so that it would fit in the circle. I colored them with my markers and blender pens and then added some crystal effects and stickles over the top. I tied some cute gingham ribbon over the top of the card and then popped my strawberries up over it. The sentiment was then stamped and punched out with my word window punch!
My second card uses this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I used some fabulous Nouveau Chic designer paper for the background and sewed around the edge of it. I then tied on some Sage Shadow ribbon as well as a little piece of Basic Grey ribbon. For some detail I then used my ScorPal to create some scored lines next to the ribbon. I stamped the fun start twice and popped up the Apricot Appeal one for some added dimension! As a final touch I then added some pearls to the corners of the smaller square!
Now hop along to see what Maren has cooked up for us! I'm sure it will be amazing!
