and a neutral if desired.
You can find more inspiration for this challenge here:
Jimmi: The Stamping Shopper
Kim Muhl: Papertastic Creations
I have a Hip Hop Hangover (even though I left early I reall think I DO have a hangover from it...Ah!) so I used this image from Unity. It is Joy Words. You can buy it as part of a set or as a single.
I also decided to try watercoloring. I used to do it a lot but haven't lately so I am quite a bit rusty on this technique. I think I threw about 7 or 8 attempts in the trash before this one finally took (somewhat). I also got to play with Liquid Applique for the first time. How fun!!
I would love for you to play along with our challenge. Just link your card on one of our blogs and if you upload to SCS use keyword FFC8. Thanks for stopping by today- I hope to have more stampy goodness for you once I get some energy. :) Maybe tomorrow!

Today I wanted to share the card I made Sunday evening for Card Positioning Systems sketch challenge. This week Unity is sponsoring the sketch and it is a really good one. Of course I had to play along!
I made really girly card for this challenge with Unity's Hey Chick set.- I love this stamp set and you can really bling the image up. I used Black Diamond Stickles to jazz up my chick. I think I am going to send this card to someone who LOVES pink. ;) Thanks for stopping by today- I hope your week is off to a great start!
Stamps: Unity Hey Chick
Paper: SU- Basic Black, Shimmery White: K&C DSP
Ink: Black Stazon, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink
Accessories: Black Satin Ribbon, Nestabilites, SU Photo Corner Punch, Primas, Black Button

For something clear I decided to try something new- stamping on acetate. Ribbon is easy for me- I love it and put it on almost every card so I chose my Riding Hood Red Taffeta. My latest Unity Shipment was my Kit Of the Month- Thinking about the Good Times.
My card is a 4 1/4" square card since the images from this kit are a little smaller than most Unity images. I stamped the flourishes from the KOTM on a 3x3 white CS square in Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette. Then I stamped the Sentiment: "We are the Music Makers & We are the Charmers of Charms" with black Stazon onto my 3x3 Acetate square and attached it to my card stock layers with pewter brads. I added my ribbon to my base then added some primas and voila! My card is done. I had a hard time getting a good picture of the card it looks better IRL.
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out the other Unity Challenge Junkies' blogs (see sidebar) and feel free to play along. Just use keyword USC09 when uploading your card to Splitcoast so we can find your card! Happy Wednesday!!

My card uses the camper stamp from Unity's August KOTM (retired). I love this little stamp. The sentiment is from Simply Said. I kept everything simple since guys don't like a lot of frou frou LOL. I think that's why I don't like making masculine cards- I NEED frou frou!! The camper is paper-pieced with the DP and I accented it with brown brads. (no ribbon for guys, darn it!!) In case you can't see it, the card says "Good Things are Coming Your Way." Appropriate for a camper, don't ya think. :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog- I hope that you will play along with us. When you upload your card in the SCS Gallery please use keyword USC08 so we can find your card easily. Be sure to check out the other Unity Junkies- their blog are on my sidebar.

This is the card I made for her special day. I hope she likes it- I wanted it to be as special as she is! I used the Unity sets Oh What a Beautiful Morning and Simply Said. Her favorite colors are pink and green. I tried to incorporate both those colors on her card. I sponged the DP and the main image with creamy caramel trying to give it an "antiqued" look. Anyway- thanks for stopping by today and please stop by Jimmi's blog The Stamping Shopper and give her some birthday love!!
Stamps: Unity- Oh What a Beautiful Morning; Simply Said
Paper: SU: Old Olive, Ruby Red; K&C Company Hannah DP
Ink: Brown Stazon, Old Olive, Creamy Caramel

This week's hostess is Maggie. She chose a really cool sketch for our challenge. This card is also my first chance to play with September's Kit of the Month. I do not know how Angela does it but she manages to make each kit better than the last!! Her designers and artists are awesome!! You can play along- just make a card using the layout above. You can still play even if you don't have Unity stamps. Just use the keyword USC6 when you upload to the gallery.
I'm keeping it short today since Wednesdays are my "half" day (only the company I work for would consider 8 hours a half day.....)at work, but you can be sure I will be hanging out in the Unity Forum on Thursday for Hip Hop! Please join us for prizes and most of all GOOD TIMES!!
