H{ippity} Hop Monday

Hope you all had a great weekend! After 2 birthday parties on Saturday, we took it easy today and had a lazy PJ's day complete with some crafty goodness!
For now, I will share one card that I made using one of the Donna Downey Artist In You Stamps by Unity and the Thanks. sentiment is from the Simple Things set by Ippity. This is one of the four cards we will be making in my Fun With Unity workshop at Paper Wings on July 30th.






I started with plain white cardstock, sponged the background in a few different colors, stamped the image with embossing ink and then heat embossed with black embossing powder. I then ran it through my Cuttlebug using the houndstooth embossing folder and lastly sprayed with Glimmer Mist and Smooch Spritz. I enjoyed using several different techniques on this card! This beautiful card in the SCS gallery was my inspiration although I didn't use the same techniques.

Have a great week!
