Hip Hop Hangover Day!!

Happy Thursday!! It's Hip Hop Hangover (HHH) Day!!
You might be asking yourself "What is Hip Hop Hangover?" That's easy...it is the day after Unity's Hip Hop Blog Hop where their customers instead of their DT get to share creations they made!



I love to participate, but don't always get a chance to! I was able to make three new Unity cards over the last couple of days, but the best news is that I was combining challenges again and also made them so that they qualify to be entered into the challenges over at Stampin Out Alzheimer's too!



Here is the card that I made for the HHH today. It came from the Unity Addicts Challenge this week which was to make a collage card! This was really tough for me!! Collage falls into that artsy kind of category and I don't think I do. LOL!! The color combo is from the Color Throwdown blog.




Here are the deets:


Stamps: All Unity of Course: Butterflies and Friends for Life (Aug KOM), Flowers and Leaves (Gratitude = Joy), Corner Embellishment (May KOM), The Road to a Friends House...(Sept KOM)
DP: Botanical Collage Flat Paper (K&Co)
CS: Bordering Blue, Elegant Eggplant and Barely Banana (Stampin Up!).
Ink: Stampin Up! (Chocolate Chip)
Embossing: Ink: Top Boss, Powder: Custer's Last Stamp (Detailed Gold)
Embellishments: Ribbon: Joann's, Buttons: unknown, Gold Gems (Joann's)



Ready for a little more Unity?? Here are the two other cards I made for the Hip Hop Challenges.



This first one was for the "Always New at Unity" challenge where we were to use our newest stamp set from Unity. I used the Rain & Flowers set that I just got. This card also uses Julee's MojoMonday sketch #88 and the SCS color challenge (CC220) to use Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie.


The rubber boots DP is from American Crafts and the flowers are Prima. The ribbon comes from Basic Grey.



This last one was for the "Unity's Knot Any Old Stamp Company" challenge. In this one we had to use knots on our card! I decided to stamp the flower from the Everyday Adorable set (which is on sale right now through the weekend at Unity) onto some fabric with Stazon and then I tied many french knots using embroidery thread. (I will share some details about how I did this in a later post!)

The DP is Basic Grey, the ribbon is unknown and the Flowers are from Prima. I used my oval and scalloped nesties to make the frame and the base for the sentiment which is a Stampin Up! stamp from the set called "It's Your Birthday." The brads are Basic Grey.


I have also entered these last two cards into challenges that are occurring over at the Stampin Out Alzheimer's site. Have you signed up yet?
