Hipping and Hopping with some Unity Phyllis Harris new release stamps!

Hello Unity Friends!  In case you didn’t notice, I was asked to stay as guest design for Unity for another month (yeah!!).  On today’s Hip Hop we’re showcasing six brand new Phyllis Harris stamp sets that are now available on the Unity Stamp Co. website! 

I have two masculine cards to share with you today using the boy stamps from the release.  Up first is a card I made with the “No.Fun” set.  Don’t you just love the look on this little guys face?  I kept my design simple on this one and added some embossing to the background kraft paper.  Even though this is a more masculine card I still think it’s o.k. to add a bow on top of the wood button I used LOL!

My second card today uses the “Wishing We’re Forever Friends” set.    When I first started colouring this image I was a bit perplexed on how to make the night sky look night-y (if that’s a word).  So I pulled out my chalks and applied some grey and black tones all over the sky.  It’s a great way to fill in a large area and I think I was able to achieve a sky look without having to use a ton of markers.  I added some little die cut stars to my image panel and some Stickles to make the stars and moon shimmer.

And how about a special???
