Growing in Unity Day 4 Hip Hop Style!

HIP HOP!!! Unity Thursdays Rock! If you are not sure what I'm talking about click here. Most of you already know and am an addict like I am and look forward to the sneak peeks and special sales that enable to buy more and more! I'm not complaining just stating fact! Ok enough already right? You want more projects? Here you go:
Please bear with my not so awesome picture taking skills, taking pics fo cards is hard enough but trying to get a whole layout was tough! I have been working on this layout for over a month! I just kept thinking I was missing something but I think it's as good as it is going to get. Supplies used: Prism cardstock, patterned paper I forget!, grunge board, prima flowers, DMC floss for stitching, brads, versamark and Stampin' Up! ink, the stamps of course are Unity: Me, Myself an I single that I won at my very first HIP HOP!, Cuter than Most, Happy is from the Fall Festival set, Romantic is from the Growing in Unity set and the adorable owls and swirls in the bottom right corner and top left corner of picture (yes I cut those out by hand) came from the October Kit of the Month. Close up: I paper pieced the I and colored in the Owls with a mix of my water color pencils and my Souffle pens.
Close up of swirls and stips: edges of strips are torn and stamped with various stamps listed above. The swirls are stamped with Versamark and parts colored with gel pens.



The stitching was hand-sewn, the swirls were cut out by hand, the flower is felt with an orange brad in center.




Isn't this the cutest little Deer ever? This adorable little Deer is from the November Kit of the Month from Unity. I woke up at 5:30 yesterday morning with this idea in my head. I knew when I saw the sketch challenge SC202 exactly what stamp I wanted to use. The supplies: cardstock is Bazzill, patterned paper is October Afternoon, brads, twine, water color pencils, aqua pen, square punches and edge distressor. This stamp is from the Biker Alley Unity set. Being that my husband is a Marine I knew this stamp would be perfect for my scrapbook. The rest of the set, not so much. So I asked Angela if I could get this as a single and she graciously sent it to me with one of my orders! She rocks! It is a very large stamp so it's perfect for Scrapbooks, for cards I needed to make it a jumbo card! The other stamps are from Legacy Stamps, DRS and Stampin' Up! What a mix huh, but they all work great together! The cardstock is Kraft from Bazzill, the patterned paper is from Combat Creations.



I flocked the yellow ribbon and three black brads in the bottom corner.So don't forget to join us in the HIP HOP forums today! I will be giving my blog candy away later today, so check back! Today's comments will be included in my drawing! Thanks again for all the kind words and feedback on my creations! You all are the best! Have a great day!
