Unity Hip Hop

Hip Hop Thursday with Unity Stamp Co. is here!
There are lots and lots of new releases and I'll be sharing two
of them here today, along with a couple of stamps from different Kits of the Month.

**First, you should be here from Renee Aslette's Blog**

I'm breaking the mold today and going with a couple of tags instead of cards.
Design by Lisa Arana
Like a lot of crafty folks, I buy shipping tags by the box-full...I thought the
manila tag would look just right with a lily white egg sitting on top!
I first stamped the image onto the tag and then onto a piece of white
cardstock, which I trimmed out and attached with foam dots.
I glittered the crown with a bright yellow glitter and then added a wooden
heart button and thanks tag (from the the October KOTM)
**This stamp releases TODAY, so check out details on the Unity website**

Design by Ann Butler
Lots of possibilities with the Stripes.Dots.Hearts Faux Quilted Stamps!
There are so many designs to choose from: Diamonds & Plaid, Doily Picnic
and Leaves All Over...all in square and triangular shapes...great building
blocks for your cards.
I started with an embossed XOXOX tag from the Curtsey Boutique and
after stamping three of the dotted squares onto a pink cardstock and cutting out,
I used a zig-zag stitch from my sewing machine to keep them in place.
Next I stamped "LOVE" from the January Kit-of-the-Month.
A trio of turquoise punched hearts with pearl centers completed the
sweet, yet simple tag!
**Hop on over to Shilo Miles' Blog now**
and don't forget to comment at each stop in the hop so that you'll be in the drawing for
one of THREE $20 Unity Gift Certificates.
Good Luck...thanks for visiting my blog!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
