Hip Hop Thursday: The End of the HOP & UNITY BLOG CANDY!!!!

Can I get a Hip Hop? Today is the second Unity Hip Hop Thursday! Time for some hipping & hopping and inking & stamping up some fabulous Unity stamps!
What does this mean?
Well......you are gonna need to do a bit of blog hopping, you might see a new single that you could WIN, you can buy a FAMOUS Kit stamp (for a heck of a deal.....only $5), there will be a stamp for only 1 penny (!!!!) AND you could win a Unity stamp kit.....(keep reading for more info on that one)
Now, can I get a Hip Hop?? ;-) Plus, Angela is offering up 10% off on EVERY order ALL day long! :-) Isn't she the most generous person EVAH!!

If you have been blog hoping already.....................You have REACHED THE END!!! Post a comment on this post and you are eligible to win the School Rock Star kit!! The random winner will be announced TONIGHT in the Unity Hip Hop forum on SCS.
Those of you that have yet to do the Blog Hop......START HERE.....you don't want to miss any of the fabulous EYE CANDY those other dt girls have created!!

Ready for some Unity inspiration?? Well.....as you can tell...I {heart} Unity! I really can't ink them up enough!! So here are my SIX hip hop cards

The first card uses the Autumn Blessings kit! Love this big pumpkin! I added a little bling from my cherry icons for leaves. I used my Cosmo Cricket Haunted paper.



Autumn Pumpkin Card Recipe:

Stamps: Autumn Blessings
Paper: PTI summer sunrise, cosmo cricket Haunted dp
Ink: memento
Accessories: copics, cherry bling, may arts ribbon






The second card was made using the August Kit of the Month: Remember Happiness. I paired it with some Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie.
I Heart U Card Recipe:
Stamps: remember happiness
Ink: old olive, regal rose, rose red
Paper: Cosmo Cricket honey pie dp, PTI kraft
Accessories: 1" & 1 1/4" circle punch, PTI ribbon, twine





This itty bitty card uses both the single from last week's Hip Hop, So & So Loves, and the Kit of the Month. These images are the perfect match with some Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy.
Love Camper Recipe:
Stamps: So & So Loves, remember happiness
Paper: Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy, PTI white & aqua mist
Ink: memento
Accessories: silver spica pen, target ribbon, copics






Love this Dream Tree image! I used it for last week's Hip Hop: Cherry Tree. This week, I went for a completely different look with some Hello Sunshine dp.
Yours Card Recipe:
Stamps: dream tree
Paper: Cosmo Cricket Hello Sunshine dp, PTI white
Ink: memento
Accessories: offray ribbon, nestabilities






The last TWO cards use the School Rock Star kit. Isn't it perfect?? Want to win it? Don't you just LOVE blog candy......especially free Unity stamps?? Just post a comment here and the winner will be announced TONIGHT!! I used Get Happy & Jacks World paper for these.

Super Star Card Recipe:
Stamps: School Rock Star

I have seen work form many other design teams and I am fast falling in love with you guys. Keep up the great work! I want it all!!!!!

Been a rough week. A shooting this am in a school 4 miles from the school where I work. Killed one student.

And another student died earlier this week from injuries in a fall at another local school last week.

So this school teacher would love the school rock star set.
