Welcome to the Flaunt It Fridays' Hello Kitty Blog Hop! If you came from visiting Michelle at Purple Monkey Moments, then you are in the right place. If you just happened upon my little corner of the scrappin' blog world, you should definitely head over to Flaunt It Fridays and start from the beginning of the hop. Almost all of the Flaunt It Friday designers are participating in this fun hop!
To all my Cricuteers - SURPRISE! I am now part of the Flaunt It Fridays design team! Exciting, right?? :-)
For this week's challenge, we were asked to flaunt the Hello Kitty with Airplane on Page 65 from the Hello Kitty Greetings Cart. I do not have the Hello Kitty carts in my growing collection, but I remembered that my favorite license cartridge, Mickey and Friends, has a cute little plane. So I decided to flaunt the Mickey plane instead.
I made this fun bookmark to give to my young nephew who will be flying to Florida in March. It's a little hard to tell, but I actually used my Gypsy for the lighter blue layer and cut out the plane using the Shadow feature. This allowed me to inlay the darker blue plane into the bookmark. It's easier to see in person.
♥ Light and Dark Blue card stock ~ Recollections Cape Cod value pack
♥ White card stock ~ Georgia Pacific
♥ Plane ~ Mickey and Friends cartridge
♥ "Fly Away" ~ Mickey Font cartridge
♥ Cloud ~ Create A Critter cartridge
♥ "with a Good Book" ~ printed on my computer with a Mickey font
* inked with Stampin' Up! Pacific Point
♥ 1/4" White ribbon ~ Offray
For this fun hop, we were also asked to create a second project using any cut from Hello Kitty Greetings. I found the HKG handbook online and discovered a cute heart with wings on page 51. I then located a similar image on Create A Critter and used it to create this card...
♥ Olive Green card stock ~ Recollections Spice Market
♥ Patterned paper ~ gcd studios Cloisonne collection
♥ Light Pink textured card stock and Dark Pink and Cream glitter card stock ~ DCWV Hippie Chic Mat Stack
♥ Heart with Wings ~ Create A Critter cartridge
♥ Love ~ Home Decor cartridge
(cut three times and layered to give chipboard effect)
