Wooo-Hooo Hop-a-Long and a Boy Card!

Today I'm participating in a Cross Promotional Blog Hop between 3GirlJam and Creative Inspirations Paint!  
If you've been playing along, you should have come to me from Emily's blog!

And if you just happened to be visiting me, well, Hi! But you'll want to start at the beginning to see all the wonderful projects we've put together for you today.

To start at the beginning:

I've been playing with these paints for a bit now and if you have seen some of my project over the last week or so, you'll see some of the paints in all of them.

My project is a boy project - somewhat difficult for me to do.

Funny thing, tho, my husband looked at it after I said it was a boy card and he said, "Well, it's got a fancy sports car on it...That is something I can see you enjoying!" 

I laughed, but it's true.  I'm a sucker for a fast and loud car.

Well, a little about the project.  My goal is Clean and Simple and BOY-ish.  Did it work?  And...I have been on a watercolor kick lately, which is grand considering I think the Creative Inspirations Paints work very well with watercoloring.

I used the wonderful 3GirlJam Crinkle Ribbon behind the main image.  It's from two different bundles:

I also used a few different paints on the card.
On the embossed yellow card stock behind the main image, I covered it with "Sunshine".  It gives it such a nice twinkle!

On the punched stars, I used "Blue Ice".  This is going on lots of holiday cards this year!
I also used this same paint over BIG. It really makes the word look like that wonderful metallic blue paint that has the little bitty sparkles in know like some of those hopped up street cars that the "cool" boys drive.

I really enjoyed this.  It was a good personal challenge for me, because I'm good with the frills and girly girl stuff, but find it difficult to make a boyish card (that doesn't include brown!)

I hope you liked it too!

So, there's a couple specials going on with this hop that I want you to be aware of (and participate in!).

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do w

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures! I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover. Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun! The journal block comes from their September Kit . Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower . It's big and has many uses! To start at the beginning of th
