Hip Hopping Friday with a big BANG!

Warning...  
This is a lengthy post but WORTH sticking it out until the end!!!
I am so excited... I just got some new toys in the mail. 
I just got This BABY!  

I have wanted on for awhile now and got it for a steal on eBay! 

I also just got this amazing Unity set! The Artist in You by Donna Downey
I have wanted this set for awhile and I finally gave in. Oh Boy am I happy it did! 
I also got 7 packages of gemstones from Scrapbooking Supplies for next to nothing.
Lastly, I got my KOTM!!! 



OMG!! Have you seen this set! I love it! That is nothing new becuase I LOVE each and every kit that I have received and I have over 12 now!!! 

So what did I make for the hop?  Well you know how it is when you get a stamp set.... it screams for ink! 
First I decided to use my KOTM stamps! I used this adorable bird! I colored it in with my copics (R32- peach, RV11- pink, V06-lavendar, B14- light blue, B01-mint blue and T0-toner gray). Before I started to color I used ColorBox Azurite chalk ink which happens to be ready for embossing powder. Yes, I added some clear embossing powder to my cute little bird. It's very hard to tell but it is embossed.  I added my gems and cut it out and adhered it with glue dots. 

Here is the card- 
 

I used my scor-pal on the bottom of my card for some dimension. I then added some gems... I just love these guys.  My last step was to add my sentiment stamp! 

Of course knowing this was a big day for me (you must continue reading), I decided to make another card. I thought I would use the get sketchy sketch for the Ippity challenge. I made this card with that... 


Only after I finished it did I foolishly realize... DAH!!! I was suppose to use my Ippity stamps. See I was so anxious to use my Donna Downey set, The Artist in You set that it slipped my mind.  I used my cosmo criket paper and ribbon, my chalk inks and one of my already made flowers.  I was of course in desperate need to use my new Copic air brush system so I added some color to my flower! Those little gem flowers are from the new ones I just received in the mail today! 



Well 2 last things...
First is....


I...


HAVE...

Yep.... that's right, make sure to leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win 25 random Unity Stamps!

Well I did say that I had 2 things right!!!  
I decided to share the wealth! I have been very luck lately and have won some wonderful things from blogs so I am sharing some of those things with you!!!

Jennine,
First off, thank you for the inspiration. Lovely cards. I am like you, love to ink them as soon as I get them home.
Second for paying it forward. Win or loose it is so nice to see folks doing this. I admire and respect that.
Third, thank you for being a teacher. It is a teacher that inspired me to create with everything I had. I know since you are creative you are passing that along to your students. A imagination is a gift you never out grow.
Sincerely, Pea( a.k.a. Phillane)
