Hip Hop Thursday!

Hello all my Hip Hop friends!!

It's bittersweet to be home from my holidays!
I had such a great time and I really was not ready to come home yet.....but on the other hand, it's been awhile since I've been creating and its always good to get back to it!

Here is a pic of some of my family and the neighbors in Timothy Lake, BC (where I vacationed).
I did a quick little card class while I was up there for fun!!

  Here's the ladies are all proudly showing off their finished products! They were all beginners and they all did AMAZING!! I loved teaching again - it's been way too long!

Ok, so now onto what I created for you this week.....
I've had this stamp for awhile now - I just couldn't resist how cute it is! I stamped it out on a sheet and colored it when it first arrived in the mail but I just finally got around to creating with it.

Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock; Doodlebug Petite Prints - Blue Jean Dot/Grid; Little Yellow Bicycle Freshprint Clothesline - Cornflowers; Memento Ink - Tuxedo; X-press It Cardstock; Copics - B23, B26, B21, YR12, Y21, R24, R29, B000; Glossy Accents by Ranger; Divine Twine - Cherry; EK Success Scallop Edge Punch; Buttons - Close to My Heart & Misc; Tiny Paper Clip - Tim Holtz; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Chipped Sapphire; Jenni Bowlin Ink - Fountain Pen & Spice Tin; Lace - Misc.

I also used this great background stamp - Book It! - Perfect for a background or even for journalling on a scrapbook layout:)

And here's another super cute stamp with the same story - I've had it for awhile and I am finally making a card with it!!

A close up on my little globe - I put glossy accents over the water...I think it gave it an extra little something....

Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock; LilyBee Designs Head Over Heals - Dreamy; Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe - Inventory; Memento Ink - Tuzedo; Copics - BG01, BG05, R24, R29, YG61, YG63, B000; Glossy Accents by Ranger; Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Circles; EK Success Slim Edge Punch - Bubbles; Zutter Corner Rounder; Jillibean Soup Apple Cheddar Soup - Soup Labels; Staz-On Ink - Jet Black; American Crafts Dear Lizzy Buttons & Accents; American Craft Gardenia Elements - Wood Buttons; Divine Twine - Cherry
