Dare to Get Dirty with Unity and Ippity Stamps!

Hip Hop!!

Be sure to start at the Unity blog to begin at that start, and work your way around to all the DT members of Unity and Ippity.  If you are coming to me from Karen Maldonado's blog, then you are right where you are supposed to be!!  (LOL!! I love that sentiment!)

I have a sweet card to share with you today for our Hip Hop.  Jimmi has made an incredible sketch for us to use that made me be able to whip my card out in no time!! Sometimes the no frills style of sketches are exactly what I need!!  And this one just spoke to me.  The sketch challenge will be posted in the Unity Challenges Forum on SCS where you will be able to find out all the details!!  We hope that you will play along for a chance to win something!!

But for now, here is the sketch (HHSC17) that you can play with this week...

And here is what I did with this sketch....


This card uses several of the stamps from the Fall For You set of Ippity's.  I think it is just the cutest little stamp set!!  Isn't that plump bird adorable?  The DP is from October Afternoon's Fly a Kite paper collection.  I just love the way that the browns and greens work so well together!! 


Here is a closeup for you showing the paper piecing of the belly on the bird and also the coloring I did with my Copic markers.  



Ordinarily I would stop here, but today I have something else to share with you!!

I hope that you are a Fan Club Member over at SCS and that you have been taking advantage of all the wonderful Dare To Get Dirty challenges on the Fan Club Forum.  Well today I am happy to announce that I am hosting one of the challenges!  The whole challenge is explained over on SCS, so please become a Fan Club member if you are not already one and head over to the forum to check it out!!

Here is my card for the challenge that I am hosting....


This card uses the Best Wishes and Blooms stamp set by Unity and the Spring Card technique that you can find over at SCS.

The DP I used is from Bo Bunny's Peacock Lane collection.  This is one of the cards I made to teach in my class this past weekend!!  We had a lot of fun playing with the patterned paper to create the card design you see here!!


So I am going to leave you with some assignments today...


  • Complete the Hip Hop blog hop today by beginning at the Unity blog.  Your next stop is Lisa A's blog.
