Hip Hop Hangover...finally!


Welcome! Did you go the the HOP yesterday? It was fun, and lots of prizes were given away; you should try it! After a long absence, I'm finally back to using some of my Unity Stamps - wahoo! I have a lot of catching up to do, though! Today I'm sharing with you TWO cards made with Unity's most recent kit of the month release!

This first card uses Sketch 233 from Splitcoast. I started by stamping the image on white cardstock, then used Shimmerz to paint the two scoops of ice cream and cherry. I used Twinkling H2Os to paint the cone. Then I matted the image and the dsp on Chocolate Chip cardstock and adhered them all on a Chocolate Chip card base.

And just in case you're wondering....when I was a kid, we used to go to Baskins & Robbins occasionally for a special treat. My favorite combo was anything chocolate and peppermint (their version was pink with chips of peppermint - yum!), so that's why I picked those colors for my ice cream cone.

It's been too long since I participated in any Unity challenges, so this week I decided to go for the YSHLUA #6 challenge (that stands for You Shouldn't Have Left Us Alone - you can find out how this all got started HERE) and a sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. Here's what we were asked to do for YSHLUA this week:

You will be making a card using your least favorite color as the primary color (no just throwing in on in a small spot where you can barely see it!), use two embellishments that are your least favorite, and use a stamp that hasn't seen any ink yet.

I don't typically use orange as my main color, and I don't use chipboard or ribbon very often, either. I did decide to paper piece some of the flowers with the dsp from the bottom part of the card, and used marigold and key lime Shimmerz on the rest of them.

Lastly, if you've never purchased Unity stamps before, now is a great time to start! If you order this weekend, not only will you get a free stamp with a $25 order, but if you mention my name, my email, and "I AM NEW" as you're checking out, we will BOTH get a 40% off coupon for the next order - cool! Deets and sale special are all on the Unity website! PLUUUUUS, if you email me that you did this, I'll stamp off some Unity images for you!

Thanks for stopping by today - come again soon!
