Unity Hip Hop Thursday

Ready for some FUN?? Don't forget to read ALL about the specials on the Unity Blog.
New RELEASES!!! Here is a peek at two of them: Do Not Open & Christmas List.
The Christmas List card uses yesterday's sketch on SCS. I got out some kraft paper, in honor of AJ! ;-)
Christmas List card Recipe:
Stamps: Christmas List
Ink: memento
Paper: Oh, Joy!, PTI
Accessories: rhinestone stickers, may arts ribbon

I used some Tinkering Ink Yuletide Finery on the Do Not Open card. Isn't that patch FABULOUS??
Recipe:
Stamps: Do Not Open
Ink: stampin up markers
Paper: Oh, Joy, PTI
Accessories: Tinkering Ink Yuletide Finery, may arts ribbon, SU! ribbon

I finally got my hands on the new October Afternoon paper.....the perfect match for Cuter Than Most. Can you guess where I got the box from??
Stamps: Cuter than Most
Ink: SU! brilliant blue, memento by Tsukineko
Paper: Night Light paper by October Afternoon, SU! pumpkin, PTI cream
Accessories: Michaels blue ribbon, SU! striped ribbon, Impress eyelet, star punch, making memories paint, Copics, Spica glitter pen by Copics, Cropadile from We R Memory Keepers

I also made a Monogram card set. I just LOVE these letters, Formal Alphabet. I thought this would be perfect for a Bridal Shower gift. I used a photo box and some fleuriste dp from Cosmo Cricket.
Stamps: formal alphabet
Ink: memento by Tsukineko
Paper: fleuriste dp by Cosmo Cricket, SU! burgundy, PTI cream cardstock
Accessories: Martha Stewart ribbon, SU! scallop and circle punch, Cosmo Cricket ribbon, photo box by Cosmo Cricket
