What a Great Idea (Ikea)!

Forgot to post this up..a quick card I made for a friend... sent her an Ikea Card for her special day... as she is redoing her scrap room (wink wink)... So I took it and made it into a pun..not a great Idea.. but a great IKEA!
I Used the Classic Label Card Base, Kawaii Light Bulb and used my Sketch Pens to add the stitching and the Sentiment.  I stamped the PKS Kawaii Face stamps to make it even more adorable!  Tied it off with some Kraft twine..and there you go!

Oh So Maude {mod} TIME WARP Blog Hop Stamp Release!

Hi there! Welcome to the Let's do the Time Warp Blog hop! 
Our blog hop is sponsored by DigiMyWorld and SVG Cutting Files, so sit back, relax and enjoy the inspiring creations the teams have made using the latest Digi My World Digital Stamps!

This is the first stop on the hop, but I have a complete blog hop line up at the bottom of my post.

And now for my project!
I decided to use the new So Maude! Digital Stamp
 I just HAD to color that HAIR!! 
And I wanted to experiment with doing 'make up'. 
I choose a loud and bold color scheme that I thought would be reminiscent of the era (being a 70s' baby, I just figured orange and green!)... 
I printed my digi and added her to the Trapezoid Card base, I thought the shape was different and fun......
I added some fun washi tape and and Bubbles as the embellishments!
I enjoyed coloring her so much..I took another of just her face and blew it up for a smaller 4 X 4 notecard... Isn't she lovely?
Of course, I needed to find the perfect Jaded  Blossoms's  Easter Treats 2 came in handy! I just masked off the Happy Easter part and kept the rest!

Close up of the amazing Maude!

Enjoy The Ride!

Happy Alien Abduction Day Everyone... Yes... that is to play along, I made this cute little Alien card... to Enjoy the Ride!

I started with the Simple Label Card base and then wrapped some MaraschinoTwine around it.  I then took the back insert piece from the Alien Candy tube holder and sized it to my mat.  I added Rhinestones to the UFO to bling it out.  The floating cow being abducted is the Free Cow Silhoutte in the FB Group member area.  I then cut 2 layers of Grass with the Grass Border from Spring Dies.  Then to tie it all off, I stamped ENJOY THE RIDE from Picture This!
Hope you enjoyed my fun and whimsy project card for today!

Just Chicken In .....

I needed to make a card for my son's bus aid, as he had surgery a few weeks back.  We miss him like crazy and just wanted him to know we were all thinking of him... so, needed a manly but cute card....
This is what I came up with.
I used the Mini Note Cards (just scaled it a little larger to be a 4 X 4 card instead.
I cut the cute Chicakdees file and pop dotted him on an outset mat I made in the Designer Edition Software on my Cameo.
Found the cutest sentiment from Udderly Adorable and add it to a min tag die.
Tied it all up with some Maya Road twine in Pumpkin Orange. I LOVE this twine..its nice and thick and you get a nice amount for the price!
Oh and I used the Cameo Sketch Pens to do the stitching on my white bordered outset.
I admit, the face is girlie on the Chick..but its what I grabbed from my stash as I just need to get it done!

Monster Cereal for National Breakfast Week Blog Hop!

Hi there! Welcome to the National Breakfast Week Blog hop!
Now don't let the name fool you, this hop is for TODAY ONLY, not a full week!

Our blog hop is sponsored by Jaded Blossom and SVG Cutting Files, so sit back, relax and enjoy the wonderful creations the teams have made using some of the most beloved Cereal Icons of all time!
And now for my project!  
I decided to do THREE projects because I could not really separate the Icons I choose..the MONSTER cereals, Count Chocula, Frankenberry and Booberry!!

So.. growing up in the 70's...this was the breakfast of Champions , lol.
My Sister LOVED Count Chocula. I preferred Frankenberry..... and well, I felt bad not to include BooBerry.  There are 2 more Monsters in this series actually, the Mummy and the Werewolf -but I dont ever recall having them growing up, so they got the axe! 
Here is a close up of Count Chocula
I love how he came out...and I just love dark ink on dark papers to give it texture. It may be hard to see in my photos though. 
The Count is on a Jaded Blossom Purse Holder filled with Whoppers.  I added a sentiment from Sprinkled with Love on a Mini tag Die.  Perfect for that Chocolate Lover in your life.  
I had the gold wired ribbon and the brown organza ribbon in my stash and it just worked perfectly with the overall feel of the earth tones I used for him.  I wrapped the handle of the Purse Container with Kraft Twine.

So next is MY Favorite, Frankenberry!
I did a Monochromatic color scheme with this just as I did Count Chocula..this all in PINKS...which , by the way, is one of my LEAST favorite it was a BIG stretch for me to use all this pink..but I have soo much of it in my stash! 
Frankenberry is on the Double Tube Holder from SVG Cutting Files.
The Tubes from Jaded BLossom are filled with 2 different colors of PINK gumballs. I tied the top off with some PINK tulle.  I see in my picture my washi tape was coming off the side, lol --- oops!
I stamped a sentiment and the strawberry from Feeling Fruity and placed it on a Candy Wrapper Die. I just love using those as flag bases.  Oh and I used the flag die too!

Last but not least is Booberry, that I made into a card
I have never tried this cereal before... as a kid I probably would not have liked it..but as an adult I probably would!
Boo is on an Action watch out!
I placed him on the Classic Label Card Base, and added an extra mat.
I found the yellow polka dot gross grain in my stash and it matched his hat so perfectly! Added some random blue sequins and some triple twisted twine to the card.  I stamped a sentiment from Too Cute to Spook and put it on a Mini Tag Die.

Now ALL three of my MONSTERS are FREE for today ONLY..but to get them, you have to continue HOPPING to be taken to the place to request them!! THanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed seeing what I made as much as I enjoyed creating what I made!

Have a Rice Day, Kawaii Sushi !!

Today I'm sharing a super simple and quick card I made using the Kawaii Sushi. from Digi My World.
 I dont know why, but I just so enjoy coloring kawaii images!

I used a minimal color scheme in my project.  Black, Grey and Orange. 
 It was lots of fun to use this color combo.
I took 2 images for Kawaii Sushi and just went to town. I love the shine in the shrimp roll.
I used the Bracket Label Card base from SVG Cutting Files, stamped a cute sentiment from Jaded Blossoms Kawaii Sentiments, and put it on a Flag Die.
I tied it off with some Black Licorice Trendy Twine and a cute Glittery Button from Queen and Company.
