Happy Happy Hip Hop!!!

Good morning to all my Unity Stamp Co. Peeps!

Today is another JV Football day around here...
AWAY game... 
which means that I once again am going to miss chit-chatting with you girls. 
I love my boy, but geez, football is seriously cutting into my hip hop time...NOT GOOD!

The good news is that today's game is close to the rest of my family so all the grandparents, cousins, and aunts & uncles (from my side of the family) get to come out and cheer Jacob on as he plays (hopefully, it is not a benchwarmer kind of night...hehe!)

But that's enough sports chat...lets talk us up some STAMPING!

This first card started out following this week's sketch, but it seriously MORPHED from the original layout. Sometimes you just have to go with where your creative muse leads you and hang on for the ride.

I used another new Melody Ross kit, Domestic Bliss...LOVE this kit!!! 
{psst, the plan is to use this kit again for tomorrow's project...that is if my creative muse agrees with my plan as I see it in my head...hehe!}

I used a tiny bit of Diamond Glaze and ultra fine glitter to give a tiny bit more dimension to the jar vase of the stamp.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Domestic Bliss
*October Afternoon Fly a Kite paper collection
*ribbon (hobby lobby)
*Martha Stewart border punch
*corner rounder
*Palette burnt umber ink pad
*brown burlap floss
*Diamond Glaze
*prisma glitter

For my second card, I basically CASE'd an earlier card that I created a few months back...

A super, sweet and simple card. I need to make up a whole bunch of these just to have on hand to send out.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Little Whispers
*Cosmo Cricket 6x6 Pixielicious paper collection
*Kraft card stock
*StazOn Jet black ink pad
*MM velvet ribbon
*flat-backed gems
*Fiskars border punch

Now you need to hop on over to Stephanie's beautiful blog...

Hi Christi,

Love these cards you're showing us here! The colors in the first are just wonderful, love the blue! And pretty how you made the sparkly water in the vase there!! The second is a real beauty!! Oh, grgeous, wish I was able to make one like that, I always have the feeling I miss something when I try to make it, but when I see a card like that on a blog, it's just perfect!! Have to try again, soon, ha ha!!!
Thanks for the inspiration!

Hugs, Wendy
