11.25.2010 – a Surprise Wednesday Hip Hop

Oh, what a big day!!!!

Unity has some BIG exciting news today.
Love all this co-branding and
is another fantastic combo with Unity!!!

Check out all the A.MaZiNG sale regarding the new releases on the Unity Blog.

PLUS, we are FLiP FLoPPiN’ on this early HiP HoP day!!!

Lots to share.

First up, my cards using the adorable Bella Blvd stamp set Sunny Happy Skies.  I love clouds!!!  So, I couldn’t wait to get this all inked up.

How awesome is this hot air balloon!!!  It is one great birthday friendly set.  The paper is from the Lillian Collection by Crate Paper.  I added the Happy Birthday saying from the How You Doin’? Ippity stamp set.  Just perfect.  How You Doin’? is just one of the fabulous new {Ippity} stamp sets released just LAST WEEK!!!  Need an {Ippity} chick to get some fabby new stamps too?

This is the Bella BLVD stamp set I’m using today.

Too stinkin’ cute right!?!


I just had to do one more birthday card with this set.  Rainbows and balloons just say birthday to me.  This time the paper I’m using is the Season Collection by Crate Paper.  Even though these cards have rainbows, clouds and balloons, I’m hoping they can pass as boy friendly cards due to the colors.  Not TOO girlie right???  haha.  Ok, I know, I’m foolin’ myself.

ETA: This card was blog spotted at the CREATE BLOG!  I’m so excited!

And, I have a little project using Unity stamps for today’s theme: bag it and tag it.  I made a fun little hostess gift bag for Thanksgiving.  It could hold some homemade jam, spiced nuts or a sweet smelling candle.  A quick easy way to dress up a little thank you for your hostess.  The colors and stamps could easily be switched around to inspire you for a Christmas hostess gift as well.

Sorry for the icky photo, the close up below is better.

I’m using the January and September 2010 kit of the months to decorate the bag and tag.  Heehee, rhymes make me giggle.  That gorgeous gingham ribbon was a recent find at Michaels.  I might have to go see if I can find some more.  Down the edge of the bag I stamped the dot background from the January 2010 KOM.

Here is a close up of the tag.

The flower was stamped using some Ippity ink in Haystack and then the thankful in red over top (both from the September 2010 KOM).  The tag is cut using the Spellbinders Labels 14.   And last, the large border punch is by EK Success (Circles).

I sure hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving Day (if you are in the U.S.).  It is my favorite of all holidays.  Just a day to give thanks and remember all the blessings you have.

PLUS, I the food!!!

HaPPy {early} THaNKSGiViNG!!!
