Unity Hip Hop {Dec 16th}

Welcome to my stop on today's Hip Hop! I hope you started at the Unity Blog because you don't want to miss a thing! I am thrilled to show you Unity's gorgeous new Echo Park sets!! My card uses five images from With Love which is my favourite of the four new sets. I am going to love this rectangular frame as much as the oval frame from Happily Ever After and those of you who have been following my blog for some time know just how much I love that frame! Frame aside, I love any stamp set that has a bicycle in it. :)

To make this card, I started by stamping a rose garden on the card base using Love Never Fails and stamped the Eiffel Tower from When I Am With You on top of the roses. Then I started adding the layers, four total, by cutting out the frame, stamps and bicycle. For the sentiment, I swapped out the word 'two' and replaced it with the number '2' from the stamp.

Here are the four newly-released Echo Park co-branded sets. Clicking on any of images will take you straight to the Unity Store for purchase! Now through Monday, these sets are on sale for $21.99 and with every order there will be a free gift. Any orders over $40 will receive three pieces of Echo Park Be Mine patterned paper as well as the Be Mine Alpha Stickers. Plus, the free shipping special is still on for all U.S. and Canadian residents!

Don't forget about the prizes for today's Hip Hop! Two winners will be chosen randomly (a) from one of the blogs on this hop and/or (b) from a comment on the Unity Forum Hip Hop Chat thread today. The winners will be announced on the Unity Blog's Friends With Flair post tomorrow.

Now it's time to Hip Hop on over to the amazing Julie Campbell!
