It's {Hip Hop} Time!

Happy Thursday! Are you ready to Hip Hop? I know my blog is almost at the end of the hop this week so by now you have seen some truly inspiring stuff!!! I hope you have joined me via Wendy's blog. If not, be sure to hop on back to the Unity blog to begin your fun and also to see all of the specials for today!

Well, there is an amazing new release today from Unity Stamp Co. that I know a lot of my faithful subscribers have been waiting for. This is the kit I suggested to Angela. It is our "Something Within" kit. I came up with the scriptures for the kit, and then Cassie Medema made them look pretty! I think you all will LOVE this kit, and it is only $10!! I used one of the stamps in the kit to create this paperweight:
I used a paperweight I purchased from 1-2-3 Stitch. Yes, I still love my cross stitch too! Anyway, it is glass and very heavy. It has a nice recessed area so that you can use lumpy embellishments if you would like. You could make a set of four paperweights with the four different stamps in the set. These would make great gifts. In this week's Unity Challenge Wednesday thread, the challenge was to use pink and black. So I decided to use the challenge colors for my paperweight. I love pink anyway so this was an easy challenge for me. I did emboss the scripture. It really makes it stand out beautifully underneath the glass. For a full list of products I used, look here.

Now onto my second piece of inspiration for today. I love to color, and the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club product focus (Coloring Mediums: copics, watercolors, pastels, etc.) was perfect for this butterfly from the Unity It's the Little Things July kit. If you don't currently subscribe to the monthly kits, you really should. They are a great value, and there are always AMAZING stamps in each set! The current September kit even has one stamp I designed. :)I also added some fun bling to the center of some of the flowers, and to create the squares along the bottom, I used my Creative Memories square maker. Fast and easy! The Copic colors I used are in the picture below.
For more information on the products used on this card, check out my gallery post here.

I hope you have enjoyed today's inspiration! Have fun with the rest of your hop. You can now hop on over to Heidi's blog. She has created a stunning post for today! Blessings to each of you!
