Hello Kitty Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to the Flaunt It Friday's  Hello Kitty Blog Hop. If you are here from the super talented Elsa's blog Cricutlver then you are in the right spot. If you just arrived here and would like to start from the beginning please go directly to the Flaunt It Fridays blog. 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 am one of the designers that does not own that cart but I was able to use other carts to create a Hello Kitty look-alike.
I made a treat bag topper. To make my Hello Kitty look-alike I used Create A Critter for the kitty and New Arrival for the airplane. I used my Gypsy to "hide" the kitty face and the windows on the airplane. I Peachy Keen Stamps PK-754 Critter Faces Medium for the kitty face. I had to kind of ink certain parts of the face stamps to get the parts that I wanted. I used heart shaped brads for my airplane windows and used to white gelly roll pens for the stitching. The Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls was used to emboss the background paper.

Now for my second project we got to choose any cut from the Hello Kitty Greetings but again since I don't own the cartridge I chose a similar cut. I used the Cricut Search Engine and found that there are cherries on Hello Kitty Greetings so I found some cherries on several cartridges and chose the cherries from Country Life. For my second project I made a card.
This is a 4.25x5.5 inch card. The cherries were cut from the Country Life cartridge. The patterned paper came from DCWV Sweet Stack. I used a Fiscars punch and added ribbon and button with baker's twine. Used my white gelly roll pen for a bit of accent. The sentiment is from Pink By Designs Country Living stamp set.


Now what's a blog hop without some blog candy! Today I am giving away a $10 gift certificate to Peachy Keen Stamps! All you have to do is make sure you are a follower and leave a  comment after this post. Our hop will run all weekend long and I will chose the winner for my my blog candy on Tuesday Jan. 11th.

Now remember, you must leave a comment on everyone's blog to have a chance to win the Grand Prize Giveaway which is the Love Always stamp set sponsored by Pink By Design. The grand prize will be on Sandra's blog! You will have all weeked to complete the hop and we will draw the winner sometime on Monday or Tuesday.

Thank You so much for taking the time to hop with us for the Flaunt It Friday's Hello Kitty Blog Hop! We can't wait to see how you "Flaunt" your Hello Kitty this week at Flaunt It Fridays. Your NEXT STOP is the very talented Pam at Simply Pams Blog. I know she has something special put together for you there.
