Hip Hop Hangover Golden Unity

Have you experienced Hip Hop yet??????
Well you simply MUST check out The Unity Stamp Company Blog
and join us next week in the Unity Hip Hop Forum on SCS!
Every week they have challenges, chit chat and best of all FREE Unity! And then of course Friday is Hip Hop Hangover - cause you stayed up to late chattin! So this is my first time participating in HHH, I hope it's good enough -those Unity girls are some WAY talented ladies let me tell ya! This was for one of the challenges yesterday to use GOLD! I don't have a problem with god so I enjoyed this one! My wedding rings and most other "important" jewelry is gold.
And I had new Unity goodies to use! I placed an order last Friday - FAB black friday specials and it made here YESTERDAY less than a week! How is that for super fast shipping?!?!
Here is my card! It has alot going on!
First off - have you been visiting Tim Holtz's blog this week???? The 12 Tags of Christmas? Well on day 2, Tuesday, he showed this technique of swirling alcohol inks and the metalic mixatives together to make a swirly background for his tag. Since I actually had those things I thought I would try it! I wanted GOLD but didn't have it so I used Pearl and Red - it is pretty and I had fun trying would have been better with GOLD and another shade of red to add more depth. So that is the red base and the big red scalloped circle under the sentiment. I then went with this weeks sketch challenge on SCS for my layout! The patterned paper is Basic Grey's Wassil, the yellow looking paper behind it is PTI's gold which looks better in person, this whole photo is pretty bad but it was dark here and I wanted to post so that's what you get! I stamped the sentiment Jesus is the REason for the Season in versamark then embossed it using CTMH's gold EP. I punched that out with my purple marvy scalloped oval punch. I had punced out a red scalloped circle from my base piece with the Purple marvy punch. I inked both of them and the patterned paper pieces and base all with gold encore ink and heat set it! I added some gold brads to the sentiment as well. It needed something so I added a strip of green velvet ribbon I found at wal-mart!!!! Turned out nicely! It also wound up qualifying for the other hip hop challenge Shout Out - to create a card with the sentiment or words being the focus! Thanks for looking and join me next week for hip hop! It's so fun!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
