Good Morning Bloggers! Today is the Little Prince Blog Hop!


Jessica has organized a fantastic Blog Hop that is also Celebrating her son Masons' Birthday!




If you arrived from Laurie's Blog then you are in the right place, if not please start at the beginning and visit Jessica's Blog.




I had such FUN creating these projects for the Blog Hop






This cute little guy is from Bump in the Night



he is a Shaped card.. I love the mustache and his glittered green eye.



Cricut Imagine - Bump in the Night - RGB Colors



Stickles - CTMH Sanding Block to give a distressed look



Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink



Black Stickles on the eye patch








This card is one of my favorites!! 



Cricut Imagine - Buccaneer Cartridge - CCR -Cricut Essentials for the Card Base Shape



The Monkey was cut out 2x and then popped with dimensional adhesive



The sentiment inside the card was printed on the computer






This card.. is not the prettiest... It was not at all what I intended however at this point I was having issues with my Imagine and the Toy Story cartridge and cutting..



So I opted to use a Cricut Marker and then I colored Rex with Copics and hand cut him out.



His Name was also created using Cricut Markers and I hand cut them. I then embossed them with and the background of the card with Zing embossing powder just to give it all a little punch. I popped up the name with foam adhesive..

I had so much fun using this NEW {ippity} set. You are going to LOVE the APRIL Release!!

IPK-167 Let Your Heart Take Flight

I altered a notebook with Basic Grey Out of Print Paper
I stamped the winged heart on CTMH White Daisy CS
as well as some Webster's Pages Paper
and on the notebook cover itself.
The heart I used Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
then added some imaginisce bling while it was drying
I colored the Wings with Copic Cool Gray
then I used the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic a paint brush and glitter

For the sentiment I stamped it 2x on White CTMH Daisy CS
the 2nd image I cut only the heart portion out colored with a red topic marker and again added the Dimensional Magic
The Brad is from CTMH I embossed it with red embossing powder
I then used Tattered Angels Mist on the sentiment and adhered it to the
notebook..

***yes I wanted the sentiment to be placed at an angle instead of straight across, it is not an error**

Totally Terrific Thursday

Shellye here and it's
Totally Terrific Thursday 
time at I Heart Ippity!

I love that this stamp, 
"It's Raining Happy" 
reminds me of those fun pincushions that my grandmother used to have!
(you know, the ones that look like a tomato?)
 
So I guess I couldn't help but make the umbrella red with a green top...
I thought it would look great against the light blue sky and white clouds tinted with yellow.
Patterned papers by My Mind's Eye Lime Twist
 
I cut the clouds with my eCraft, then highlighted the edges with a light yellow distress ink.  
I trimmed the smaller cloud with Caribbean baker's twine.
For the umbrella, I hand-sewed on sead beads to represent the rain drops!
This is about as clean-and-simple as I get LOL

Thanks for visiting I Heart Ippity!

Cupcake Tag






This tag was created with the Cricut Imagine Yummy Cartridge

I used BoBunny Sweet Tooth Collection Paper
that I purchased from Erica's Craft Room Store

I cut the base on CTMHColonial White Cardstock
3.847 x 5.846

I then took that same image in CCR and separated them
and then cut them on BoBunnyPaper

I distressed the frosting a bit with a CTMH distressing block

I popped the frosting and cupcake wrapper using foam adhesive
I added a double bow from Chocolate Ribbon by CTMH

I then used my crop a dile to punch a hole
and added some twine for the tag

The cherry on top I used Mod Podge DimensionalMagic to give it a little pop

Design Team Members have created for you today..

Wednesday Wowzer Time

Hello everyone..
I am here with a cute card today.  I am using Mojo Monday's Sketch #234
Here is the sketch.


I am using the stamp called:
HAPPY ARE THOSE
This is from the itty bitty, {ippity} stamps.



I love the papers, how bout you?




The paper is My Minds Eye Follow Your Heart.


I wanted to use blue to accentuate the cloud on the stamp.



It is such a joy to work with {ippity} stamps.
Wednesday Wowzers posts are never a chore, I simply love working with these stamps.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great week!

Tons of Fun Tuesdsay: Beautiful You

I love stamping so much! It's very therapeutic after a long day, and it also keeps me from needing to spend money at Hallmark. I love making generic cards I can send any day to any of my friends.

This week I stamped on a Jenni Bowlin sticker and then added some letters and hexagons punched out. Hexagons are quite the rage right now so I couldn't help but hop on the bandwagon a bit.

Here's a look at my simple but fun card:
I missed taking the photo in the sunshine so I had to take the photo indoors.
It's a quick fun card that anyone can make!
I love using Ippity stamps and this stamp set is no exception.
The Dream a Little Dream stamp set includes all these stamps:
Remember to choose Heather as your Ippity Chick when you order!
Happy Tuesday!

Totally Terrific Thursday

Shellye here with your 
Totally Terrific Thursday
project!
I adore the hand-drawn look of the 
Counts as a Fruit 
stamp set by Tracey Malnofski
(IPPITY-IB-013)
It makes me wish more than ever that I could draw!
It has that Parisian flair...I love it!
Of course, cupcakes remind me of bright and fun colors, so I paired up the stamp
with the Sidewalks papers by October Afternoon.
Looks good enough to eat, right?  
I layered the cupcake with the two different patterns of paper on foam dots.
I then added just a bit of flair with red glitter for the cherry on top!
Easy peasy!
Happy creating!

Spring Card



Welcome  Tuesday!!Today is Card Creating Tuesday at My Cricut Craft Room and the Theme is Spring Card. I love spring, really I do but I hate looking for Spring colors. Instead of a Spring Colored card I decided to create a Spring shaped card.

It really is an easy peasy card..







This adorable Bunny cut is from the Holiday Cakes Cartridge
I used my Imagine (when do I NOT use it)
Cricut Craft Room Program
RGBC Codes
and the Imagine Pattern Cartridge Elise


Bunny Card Base : 
Bunny Image 5.486 x 5.042
I then copied and pasted the same Bunny Image
then I flipped the 2nd Bunny image so it would mirror the first
I bumped the noses of the bunnies together and then welded them

Bunny Layer with holes (Eastr5-s) in Chocolate Brown 5.5 x 5.056
I used the RGB Code and filled the cut with this color

Sienna160-82-45


Happy Easter Base Shadow 3.208 x 2.069
I filled this cut with a green color from the Elise Pattern Cartridge

Happy Easter 3.083 x 1.972
I filled this with a Pink from the Elise Cartridge

When I selected Cut I put my speed of the Cut at 3 and Depth at 4
I used Close to My Heart White Colonial Yardstick


Putting the Card Together:
When I put the card together I just added a few things to give the card a bit more dimension

I added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the top layer cut (Eastr5-s)
I used a snail adhesive to adhere top layer (Eastr5-s) to the card
I also took a Faber Castell Artist Pen and traced the inside of the circles
I then used some Pink Fun Flock for the Nose
I added a small ribbon in Colonial White from CTMH

On the inside of the card I added the Happy Easter sentiment
I used Versamark Dazzle on the top cut then Heat Embossed it in
 Baby Pink from Close to My Heart
