Joy, Love & Laughter!

Happy Monday and I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day filled with Joy, Love & Laughter...love that saying don't you? The May Unity Kit of the Month, {a little happy}, has so many happy sentiments and such fun images. Every month I fall in love with the new kit and think there's no way I'll love next month's kit as much, but guess what? I do! I'm sure I'm not alone in this, right?

Today, I wanted to share with you a card where I use my favorite sentiment and image from this kit ~ the stacked coffee cups and the adorable sentiment that goes with it. Here's what my card looks like.



In case you can't read it, the sentiment states, "May your cup overflow with joy, love & laughter." I stamped the image and embossed it with opaque white embossing powder, sponged all over the piece of card stock with green ink, and wiped the image clean with a baby wipe ~ this is referred to as emboss resist. This technique works so well with so many Unity images; hope you give it a try.

I also added some hand stitching for some additional texture. The final thing was the ribbon which I attached with double sided tape which allowed me to adhere it to the card front however I wanted.

This coming Thursday there are some really exciting things happening. Hip Hop which kicks off here and make sure join the party over at the {ippity} forum ~ it's going to be fun, fun, fun!!! You can find more details on the {ippity} party over at the {ippity} blog.

Hope you have a wonderful week filled with many hours of creativity!

Hugs & Smiles,
Carolina
