Hip Hop

Welcome to HIP HOP!!!
If you didn’t start at the beginning of the hop, you will want to skip on over to the Unity blog.  Angela always has fun things to share!  Plus you will want to see what everyone has to share today.

Adore the October 2011 kit of the month
and have 2 cards to share today with these amazing images.

I literally squealed when I saw this butterfly stamp.  It is so beautiful and I love the trail of stars.  I colored the top butterfly (and the rest of the stamped images) with Copics, highlighted it with a few white gel pen dots and then popped it up.  To add a subtle sparkle, I used a Stardust gel pen to the smaller butterflies and a few dots here and there.  The sparkle shows up a little better in the first image.

Next, I couldn’t wait to use that ‘YOU deserve happy’ stamp.  Love that saying.  This is a hybrid card, all the paper and embellies come from the Dutch Girl collection by Cosmo Cricket.  I then stamped the saying in two colors and added a little twine.

That is all from me.
Ready to see what Maren’s has up her sleeve?
