We're a Hip-Hopping today!!!

Yes, we are still hip-hopping even though our numbers are diminished because the whole Unity Stamp Co. gang is working out in Florida for the Craft & Hobby Assoc. Show...

They may not be around, but we are still at the end of the month which means that we are gearing up for the full-reveal of the August kit of the month...YIPPEEE!!! We've had individual sneaks all week, but I have a feeling that you have had glimpses of a few more stamps from the kit from the dt today, haven't you? ;o)
******
For my cards today, I used the Hip Hop challenges that are posted over on the hip-hop forum.

Here is the first challenge...

Absense Makes the Heart Grow Fonder-

With part of our crew out of town this week, they have left a hole and we miss them so your challenge is to create a card with a bit of it missing. Create a card that has a window on the front.
My card features three of the stamps from the August kom. That big circle is actually a journaling block with lines. I just cut them out to create the window on the card.

The layout of the card is based upon the SCS sketch for this week (SC239).
I never make window cards, but I really love the way that this one turned out...I'm definitely going to have to make these more often. (sidenote: I just realized that the bright pink cardstock looks red on my screen...it's not...it is a bright Magenta pink.)

And here is a photo of the inside of the card....
Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. August kom
*Prima paper
*watercolor pencils
*ultra fine glitter
*ribbon
*string
*Bazzill scallop cardstock
*Marvy Uchida scallop circle punches
*corner rounder

And here is the second challenge-

CHA-

With the Unity crew all in Florida for CHA, your challenge is to create a card using that acronym...

C is for coloring- color your stamped image
H is for holes- add in paper piercing on your card somewhere
A is for amore- make the card for someone you love
And the card that I created for this challenge. I used a sketch for this, but can't figure out who originally posted the sketch...it's one that I have clipped into a sketch book.
And this just happens to be another little sneak of the August kom...don't you just love that flying heart?!?! I colored it with watercolor pencils, but I think that you all probably have guessed that by now....LOL!
Another technique that I really just don't use...paper piercing, but I love the effect that it has!
Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. August kom
*Basic Grey paper collection
*StazOn jet black inkpad
*Marvy Uchida scallop circle punch
*paper piercer
*corner rounder
*ribbon
*watercolor pencils

Now you need to hop on over to....
