Hip Hop ya don't stop!

Here we are again, Thursday and HIP HOP!

First up is a card from the new KOM Fly Free. The paper is BG and the ribbon/thread is May Arts.


and second...NOT my normal style, but thought I would give it a whirl! There has been lots of chatter lately about these newer images Unity is putting out, and while I may not have thought they were my thing, now I am thinking I am loving them!

and I still love CAS, but it's nice to venture out of my normal style once in a while! ;)
I used the S4-210 Lattice Pendants die from Spellbinders™ for my little doily like thing, and inked the edges up with some chai ink.

and in true Unity fashion, I have blog candy again! What's your style? And what do you look for when you come here? CAS, new stuff, or free stamps? ;) THIS is up for grabs!!


Make sure to head yourself on over to Brooke's blog next!

I'm loving the new stamps too, I want to play more. I love the soft muted colors in your cards, very pretty and totally my style. You asked about style - for me, not too fussy but some neat detail or embellie. I love to blog hop and see what everyone else comes up with!

Agata said...

Those cards are beautiful, love the colors and the vintagy air about them. I'm rather a CAS kind of girl, here for the first time. So I don't know what I'm looking for! ;-) Just hopping around!

Michelle said...

Why do I come here? For inspiration. I love your cards! Love the ideas. I can't pinpoint my style. I think it changes all the time.

I'm a true CAS gal (I think) and that is what I love about your cards, but I've got to say that your TRUTH card is absolutely stunning. The colors, the style, everything is amazing. I think for myself that it is great to venture out of our normal styles. And if we like it then we know we can come back to it!

Awesome cards! Style? I don't think I have a set style.

Alison Zulyniak said...

I really like your butterfly tree card! I don't have a favorite style of cards, but I like seeing something that is unique or a different way to use materials.

Maria Levine said...

There's that lovely butterfly tree! LOVE IT! and the Brave Girl's stamps fabulous! I feel myself NEEDING it now! LOL! THe more chatter about it makes you think more and more and realize it's pretty cool! :-)

Stephanie Zito said...

Wow AJ! Fantastic cards!!! I love CAS but really don't have a defined style yet. I love the Thursday blog hops to get inspiration from Unity's awesome DT which helps me ink up all my Unity goodness!

very very pretty - I love that butterfly tree!! I think it's great to break out of our "comfort zones" every once in a while - sometimes it leads to new favorite things right!! I always love what you have here to show us AJ CAS or something new it's all good to me!!

Debbi said...

Love your cards. I get so much inspiration from your blog and the blog hop. I love to try new things, if it don't work then I just go back to my old ways.

Angie Blom said...

Just beautiful.. I love both of these cards!!

Kimme said...

Absolutely WONDERFUL.

I am not CAS....I have been told my style is "Pink and Blingy," not sure what that means but when I looked down at my desk last night I had to agree.

I look for inspiration when I blog hop.

Ola said...

stampjourney said...

Two great cards! Thanks for sharing!

My style is CAS, and I love that I usually get so inspired with CAS projects when I come to your blog. I also enjoy seeing the new Unity stuff, even though it might not all be just my "thing," it's always great to see the possibilities with a particular set or image.
