Happy Hip Hop Hangover!!


Happy Hip Hop Hangover Girlies!

Be sure to head on over to the Unity Blog for this weekend's specials. You won't want to miss them!
And, Happy 4th of July!! Anybody have fun plans this weekend? I would love to take the kids to see fireworks but it's been soooooo flippin' hot and humid here that I don't think I can stand it. They're still young enough that they won't realize they're missing anything. Is that bad?

This first card was made for the Sun is Shining on Unity challenge, to use yellow on your card:




The umbrella colors are also this week's SPCC color combo:


Weird how I swear I used my Stampin' Up! Gloriuos Green stamp pad but it looks more blue than green. The background is machine stitched to the card base and the "raindrops" (a retro g Studio stamp) are dotted with Diamond Glaze to simulate rain.

This next card was also made for the Sun is Shining on Unity challenge:



April 2011 issue

The ribbon slide is a "raw" metal one from Maya Road that I colored in with acrylic paint to go with the DCWV Green Stack paper and then covered with Diamond Glaze. The image block is also machine stitched. When you've already hauled out the sewing machine, might as well use it on everything!

This next card was made for a 6-y-o Star Wars fanatic's birthday party. For all the details and more shots, please see THIS POST (or scroll down a few days).



I have to say I'm pretty proud of that one. It's supposed to be Darth Vader and Obi Wan CONEobi fighting with their lightsabers.

Details (umbrellas): Stamps - Unity Stamp Co., g Studio; The Paper Co. paper; Stampin' Up! ink; Diamond Glaze; thread.

Details (flowers): Unity Stamp Co. stamp; Paper - DCWV Green Stack, The Paper Co.; SU! ink; Maya Road ribbon slide; Making Memories paint; Diamond Glaze; Adornaments fibers; thread.

TFL!

Have a great time on the rest of the HOP!!!
