I made this card for the Hip Hop Sketch 44. I have wanted to use these two stamps together--think they are so fun. The bird stamp is from the October 2010 kit, Take Time to Laugh and the crossword puzzle stamp is from the November 2009 kit, Simply Magical. I used paper from the Kioshi collection by Basic Grey and the ink is by Stampin Up. I colored the bird stamp with my Marvy brush markers and used a glitter gel pen to write Happy birthday in the crossword puzzle.
I made this card with the intentions of submitting it for publication, but didn't realize the paper was no longer available making it ineligible. So, you get to see it! I used the gate from the "Bold Insight" store kit
and the sentiment is from the other part of that store kit - All about the Journey.
The paper is by BoBunny and I used my Creative Memories curvy cutter to make the grass and then added some of the coordinating stickers for interest. The flowers are by Prima and the pearls are by Basic Grey. The paper ribbon is from my stash and the top border sticker is from the BoBunny stickers for that paper line. Really pleased with this card.
"Growing in Unity" set. I love this tree and the bird with long flowing tail. I used paper by Cosmo Cricket that had clouds on it and then used the cloud from the July 2009 kit "A Pocket full of". The journaling block is from the same kit and the sentiment is from the June 2010 kit "Fly Free". The stamp for the flowers on the twill tape is the "Flowers from Neverland" stamp. I colored the stamp with my Marvy brush markers. The papers are by Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey, and Bazzill. The ink is by Staz-on and Stampin Up as well as the twill ribbon.
Enjoy the rest of the hop and don't forget to look for the blinkie for a chance to win a grab bag of 25 of those wonderful Unity stamps. Have a fabulous weekend!
