Hip Hop Thursday 11-6

Welcome to Unity Stamp Company's Hip Hop Thursday for this November 6. What an exciting week this has been. How are you all doing??

If you haven't joined me from Linsey's blog, start at Angela's blog. Follow the blog links and do the hop with us to see all the beautiful Unity projects, with some candy at the end.

1) May 08

I had a fun time playing with the colors in the new sassafrass lass line for my "May 08" layout. The paper is so colorful and fun, with a great retro feel. I "toned down" the brightness and the pattern with a solid black background, and used my accents to highlight the colors in the paper. The mushrooms from Unity's "Its the Little Things" kit were just perfect for the retro-ness of this paper. CTMH's "honey" ink was the perfect yellow...






2) Peace on Earth

I won a Christmas making memories card kit at a crop on saturday, with prescored cards with these cute scallop windows in the middle. But with the scallop, I found myself flummoxed with what to do with the background? So I embosssed it with the Growing in Unity kit and used the Trinity Trio single for the focal image. This was cool pearlized paint I bought at the stamp expo - its hard to see in the picture but has the prettiest sheen IRL.



As always, Angela has some fabulous Hip Hop specials for today only. Check out Angela's blog for the specials.

Gorgeous photo! I love the dimension you added to the flower on the scrap page - I probably would have bent it by accident, and hoped it looked like I meant it! I also think it's cool how you were out of the box with the trees on the card. Most of the time, I think folks would cover the whole opening. Cool!!
