Hangover Hangout

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you are having a great start to your weekend. We had a blast on Hip Hop yesterday. Our theme was honoring Mother's, and the DT hip hop was outstanding! What?? You didn't get to do the DT Hip Hop? Well...what are you waiting for? Start here at the Unity Blog. You may have to scroll down on a few posts since some blogs have been updated from yesterday.

I made two Unity projects yesterday. My Mother passed away 8 years ago, so instead of making Mother's Day projects, I made two masculine cards for my Dad to receive in honor of my Mom.

The first card was created for the Hip Hop Challenge to give Unity a Bow (make a card using a bow). I used Basic Grey PP, and Bazzill CS, StazOn black ink with SU! clear embossing powder for the Unity Live Simply stamp (March 2009 KOTM). The ribbon is Pebbles and the brad is Making Memories.

The second card was completed for the Hole-y Unity challenge for Hip Hop. The specifications were to use holes as a decorative element (punch guides, thread-less sewing, etc.). I trimmed out a feather design from my Basic Grey paper, and adhered it with dimensional adhesives. I stamped the sentiment (Unity's Birdie Inspiration kit) in Versamark and applied Stampendous silver embossing powder for shine. I used my MM piercing guide for the holes on the right corners of the card, and around the sentiment. The cardstock is Bazzill.

Don't forget to check out the weekend specials at Unity. Angela has put together some awesome bundles, and she's got the new Scraponizer storage system that's perfect for all unmounted rubber.

Now - on your way to see what lovelies lie in store for you on the hangover customer hip hop! Then come join us for chatting in SCS!

Peace be the journey - cool runnings.


Ta for now, ~ky
