Hip Hop Thursday with Unity


Happy Thursday!

I'm hip hopping with Unity today and sharing the card I made using a Unity sentiment stamp and some of the goodies I received in this month's Sprinkles craft box by Webster's Pages. I just checked online at all the Sprinkles craft boxes have been sold out- including previous months that still had some left just yesterday! Probably because of how amazing they are- you may want to sign up to get their emails or like them on Facebook to be in 'the know' next month. This month's craft box included a sweet stamp by Unity!

On my card today I didn't use the stamp that came with the craft box as I have someone I want to give a card to that has been feeling down lately. I found this sentiment in the awesome set called 'thoughts from the heart' and was designed by our very own Angela at Unity! I bought it way back as soon as it came out. In case you can't read the sentiment on the card as I did use a lighter ink than normal it reads 'you are you and that is all that matters'. I think we all need that reminder from time to time. I stamped it onto one of the journal cards in the Sprinkles kit and added some of the amazing rosette ribbon they are famous for. I used one of the stickers stuck on a pin to embellish the card further. One trick I can share is when using stickers and not actually 'sticking' them to something dust the back of the sticker with powder and it will become 'unsticky'. I do this all the time when I want to pop up a sticker and don't want to chance it getting glued down somehow. 

Okay- I will stop yacking and let you get on to the next person in the hop- my sweet friend Eryn!!

LOVE your card! I stick stickers onto cardstock and cut them out before I reaise them. Your idea sounds faster!

You are really going to cheer your friend up with this gorgeous card. I love the tip about using powder to "de-stick" the sticker....I'll have to try that since I don't like how flat stickers can sometimes appear.
