Eyelet Swaps Number Two

For the second half of my eyelet swap. I'm not sure how much I like the eyelets on this one. They DO match better IRL but they are awfully bright & the b/g (oooo, that can stand for background or Basic Grey in this case. Neato!) is a little subdued. And, I'm trying to decide if I should go back & color in the leaves.....
Supplies: Stamp -- Unity Everything Extraordinary, Cardstock -- SU & pink from my stash, DP -- Basic Grey, Ink -- SU, Eyelets -- from my stash.

Friday Unity Friends with Flair

For my eyelet swap. I went thru so many ideas for this swap & none of them worked. I really wanted a stamp the incorporated the eyelets INTO the stamp but what I had planned just didn't look right. So I settled for this. And, you know what? I LOVE it!!! IRL, the eyelets match a bit better.

Supplies: Stamps -- Unity Everything Extraordinary, Cardstock -- SU, PP -- MM, Ink -- stazon & SU Markers, eyelets from my HUGE stash of eyelets that I didn't even make a DENT in!!!

Next on the hop, Lori's blog. Or you can go back to the Unity site for the entire list. Happy Hopping!

Fuzzy Ducky

YIKES!! 2 days in a row w/o a unity stamp? Y'all are going to start worrying about me. LOL. I fell in love w/this little Imaginisce stamp & bought it w/o a plan to use it. Then, Angie posted a duck swap. Well, I'm not really sure this IS a duck but I figured if it quacks like a duck & walks like a duck, you'll have to assume, it's a DUCK! LOL
I made fake flower-soft for this little guy. I took a Styrofoam ball and shredded it. Then, I colored part of it w/yellow Alcohol ink. I think it turned out CUTE! Hope everyone else in the swap thinks so.
Supplies: Stamp -- Imaginisce, Cardstock -- SU, PP -- Sweetwater (from the stash!) ink -- stazon & SU Markers, nesties

Hippity Hop

Another card from Fall for You. I do love this set but, happily, I have 2 more Ippity sets on their way to me (hope to have them today!) Can't keep away from this October Afternoon paper. I'm going to be so sad when it's gone. Hmmm, maybe I should order more? LOL

Next on the hop, Heather. Or head back Ippity for the whole list. Enjoy the journey!

It's Your Ippity Opportunity!
