Disney Pixar Blog Hop - September 24

It is my pleasure to participate in the original and most-fantastic Disney Pixar Blog Hop.  
This is my third time hopping along with these fine friends. Scroll down, and I will post links to my original projects, which still make me smile.

Without further ado ...

If you've just arrived from the magical blog of Tami, you're on the right path. If you've just stumbled along here, please do go to the start, at my sistah-in-spirit Shawn's site at  http://craftychicsblog.blogspot.com/

I've made two projects, both cards, because that's what I like to do best:
For this card, I fussy-cut an image of Ariel from a special Disney paper. Then I photocopied the paper so I could use the copy as a template to cut paper pieces from silver glitter stock for Ariel's fins, waistband and bra.  I colored the glitter stock using my Copic markers in the colors of my choice. The HAPPY BIRTHDAY was cut using my Cricut Elegant Cakes cartridge. After I glued it to the paper surface, I highlighted the text using a wash of Stickles in aqua.  I embellished the card using flowers that I sprayed with my homemade glimmer mist, as well as some Creative Charms sequined flowers. I also dimensionally lifted her arms, hand and hair, using pop-dots under those areas. The "water bubbles" were made using Ranger's "Glossy Accents."  










Here's the inside sentiment -- a quote from Ariel!

 The second is also a card, this one for Christmas:

For this card, I used a Cuttlebug Disney die to cut the silhouette from black paper.  I mounted it on vellum, intentionally curving the zig-zag edges to make it look more "comic."  I then mounted the vellum on Disney dotted specialized paper, then on red, then on green and then on the card.  I cut green mistletoe and a flower (also using the die) and highlighted Minnie's flower by using a Creative Charms flower embellishment.
 Thank you for "following" me here on CardMonkey, and also for commenting.  Those who do are eligible for my personal blog candy.


What is it, you ask?  I'm giving you a specially-assembled (by me!) Disney kit of all sorts of cuts, embellishments and papers!! 


As promised, here is the link to my previous projects posted for the past two Disney Pixar Blog Hops, in case you want or need more inspiration: http://cardmonkey-business.blogspot.com/2011/03/disney-pixar-blog-hop-magical-journey.html

NOW HOP ON OVER TO YOUR NEXT STOP:

Thank you for visiting!

Just kiss the girl! OMG, you do not know how many times in college my friend Heather and I watched Littler Mermaid . . . usually after a few drinks and we would be singing the songs so loud and dancing around the living room!!!

I love both of your cards. The wet look of the bubbles on the Little Mermaid one is GREAT, and I might need to borrow that Christmas card idea.

Love ya sistah!

Wonderful cards - and great use of the Creative Charms accents. I see that the enabling has worked again! The glitter sections you added to Ariel look fantastic - what a good idea to color them with the Copics to get just the right shade.

Hi, I am having soooo muh fun on your blog page. Music is fun, your cards are the BESTEST! I can't decide which one I like better, but I think Ariel wins since she is my 3 grand-daughters fav Princess and they would love this card. They are in Disney today.
