hip HOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How's it goin HIp HoPpeR's??? We're already on Week 10! Phew, time really does fly when you're having fun!

I have a couple fun cards to share with you today! You probably know that I like, bright, fun, cheerful, cutsie, whimsical cards, so today I thought I'd go outside my comfort zone and try "Elegance" on for size:) This paper by Tinkering Ink made it SO easy and FUN! Just LOVE IT!

Do you see NEW STAMPS on these cards? OH YEAH! I'm SO loving the new Christmas singles that Angela is releasing, you will too! My first card:
The base is Bravo Burgandy and then I added a piece of the Yuletide dp by Tinkering Ink! That paper is SO gorgeous it hardly needed much embellishing, just a fabulous Unity stamp and it's good to go! That NEW release stamp is called "Jesus is the Reason", isn't it fun!? I love it! I just added a strip of Always Artichoke, some gorgeous ribbon by May Arts, and some Dew Drops and that card is DONE!

My next card is MY FAVE in a really long time!
That AWESOME card is called "Christmas List" and is just beautiful. The details are amazing! I embossed it in silver for this card and love how it looks all shiny:) The paper is from Yuletide by Tinkering Ink again, I'm REALLY loving this paper! Seriously! This piece is a soft sky color with vanilla snow flakes, YUMMMY! I used this weeks SCS card sketch for this card:) The ribbon is Basic Gray taffetta (SU!) and some light blue organdy polka dots by May Arts. Here's a close up shot of the embossed stamp:
This next detail shot is of the chipboard flourish! I painted it a soft sky blue and then right away I poured Dazzling Diamonds on it. The wet paint acted as a glue and that glitter just SPARKLES!

Your next stop on the wild HIP HOP train is JIMMI! I can't wait to see what she cooked up today!
If your visiting my blog and want to get in on the Hip Hop action (and your chance to win some Blog Candy!) start at the Unity blog and work your way through the DT blogs to see LOADS of new releases and projects! The Unity blog is also where you'll find today's specials:)
Have a fantastic HIP HOP day!!!
