Hip Hop Thursday!


Yup, it is Thursday again! Head on over to the Unity forum on Splitcoast if you feel like getting your Par-tay on!!! (from 11am-??? EST) Most Thursdays the party lasts late into the night, with LOTS of fun and giveaways! Make sure you wear your Party Pants, as Heather B would say!!!

Here is a Unity card that I haven't shared with you yet!

The ribbon on this card was a total accident! I tied it too loose, and was too lazy to do it over, so I attached the knot to the card with a glue dot, and then pulled the sides up and the back up on the inside, so it was wrapped tight. I love the effect of the angled ribbon! What do you think?

Here is a Stampin' Up! card I whipped up yesterday:

I've been seeing lots of cards lately with embossing done on top of patterned paper, so I decided to try it. I LOVE this effect! How fun!!! Thanks to my secret sister for the inspiration. Here is the card she sent me last week, which I had to CASE!!!

I love how she did the ribbon at the bottom of the image panel, and the placement of the sentiment. So I "borrowed" the layout for my own card. Thanks!

I definitely like the angled ribbon--especially against the vertical stripes. Now I'll have to try embossing on patterned paper...Thanks for the inspiration today!

Oohh - I feel so inspired! I haven't thought of embossing onto designer paper. It is a wonderful effect. Thanks so much for sharing.
