Hip Hop Hangover with some Friday Fun!

I hope everyone is ready for the weekend. Stamping challenges are back full force for me this week and I've got THREE challenge cards to share with you.

The first card is for the Friday Fun Challenge I do with three of my Sassy Friends. Kim is our hostess and she challenged us to make a card with BRIGHT colors. Yikes!! You can play too- just use keyword FFC17 when you upload to the SCS gallery. For more Friday Fun cards visit these blogs:

Jimmi: The Stamping Shopper
Kath: Blame it on the Mojo

Stamps: Unity November KOM "Enjoy your story...laugh"
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Green Galore, PTI White, BoBunny DP Ink: Black Stazon, Riding Hood Red, Green Galore, Yo Yo Yellow, Only Orange, Brillian Blue, Ballet Blue
Accessories: Scallop Border Punch, Nestabilities, Green Ribbon, Dimensionals

Next card I made for the Unity Addicts challenge this week. Kim (a different Kim) challenged us to make a SLIM card.
This week's challenge was to keep it simple having only a card base (you can use minimal layers however) one image or sentiment and one embellishment. I did layer my image with silver paper to give it some zing but I only used the stamp Queen For A Day from Unity and some beautiful lavender ribbon I received from Lindsay Spencer. (If you are reading this, Lindsay- I am using up my goodies if you can't' tell....)
Stamps: Unity Queen for a Day
Ink: Lovely Lilac
Paper: Lovely Lilac, Silver, PTI White
Accessories: Lilac Ribbon

My last card is my Hip Hop Hangover card. I combined both the challenges issues by Jeanne in the Unity Hip Hop forum to create this card. The challenge Impressed with Unity calls for using dry embossing or scoring on your card. The Unity Dazzle challenge requires you to use rhinestones on your card. So for this card I did both! This is from Unity's December Kit of the Month: Little Reminders. The past kits of the month are still available! Check out the Unity website here:

Stamps: Unity: Little Reminders
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Pretty In Pink
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Riding Hood Red, BoBunny DSP
Accessories: Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, PIP ribbon, Rhinestones, Gellyroll pen in Stardust

Speaking of Unity's Kit of the Month Club- if you are already signed up OR if you sign up by the end of January- you will get this beauty Once the month is over you won't get it for month kit price again.....and this kit is just too adorable to pass up.

Thanks for stopping by!! I will be stamping a lot this week and next....because it's only 8 days until the January Mini VSN CRUSH!! So stay tuned - more info will follow soon. ;)
