Happy September! What's so happy about it besides the never-ending heat?? Well, I'll give you a hint: HIP HOP!! But, you came to see cards first, right??
First up today is my submission for Jen del Muro's SFYTT this week. I absolutely adore her sketches but haven't played along in a while...so I was happy when this one came together over the weekend! I also got to play with my new Hawaii Papaya DSP from SU! and that made me happy too...I am in LOVE with Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango, and this paper is just super yummy!
I picked out Tiny Trinity, one of my newer sets from Unity. Its a small set, but full of style and potential...the little trio of trees are all so funky and fun! I had to really play with my copics to get the right match for Kiwi and Tangerine...but mixing those babies is another fun thing! If you look below the trees you'll see that I again used my favorite new "grass" or ground stamp by Unity....the swirl on the journaling stamp from the July Kit of the Month. I am just addicted to it, bwahahaha!
So, are you guessing what my news may be yet? It has to do with the month of Septmeber...HIP HOP! On to the next card first though.
Here's another card from a Jen SFYTT...but this one is from months ago. I posted it to SCS, but realized that it never made an appearance here on my blog. (Funny, its usually the other way around)
I love the way the colors turned out on this one! I used the SEI Black Orchid paper pad for the teal and lime green. The flowers are from my very first Unity set ever....Flirty Flowers. Its still one of my favs (but are there any Unity sets that I don't love....hmm, nope!) I stamped the image in Versamark, embossed it with white EP, then used my sponge daubers to go over each flower. I finally added a touch of black pen here and there to help them stand out a bit and to pull in the black from the mats and ribbon. And you know me, it just has to pop somehow, yeah? And what better way than to add a touch of black and white to any bright color combo!
So have you guessed yet? You should have with all these hints! I was asked to be the Guest Designer for Unity for the month of September!! Can I get a HIP HOP!! If you're a regular here you know that I have become a Unity addict! I love the stamps, the DT, the forum at SCS, the other addicts, and of course the source of all the Unity happiness, Angela and her man Chris! You guys rock and I am so happy to be a part of the Unity family for this month!! Thanks for having me :)
