The Disney Pixar Hop Continues Today!

Yesterday, it was my pleasure to participate in the original and most-fantastic Disney Pixar Blog Hop.

New bloggers with fabulous new projects appear on DAY 2 of the Hop -- so be sure to start back at CRAFTY CHICS (Shawn) to enjoy all new Disney Pixar projects!

You can also link to the Disney Pixar Blog Hop by clicking on the "Disney Dreamer" button (top right on my blog). That will take you to Melissa's super-fun Disney projects blog; Melissa is the co-host of this Hop, with Shawn. Shawn is giving away fun blog candy at her blog -- THIS (below) Cricut cartridge!

While I'm not on today's Hop, I'm still leaving up my two projects -- both cards -- that I made for Day 1's Hop.  Here ya go:
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!!

I know that the blog hop was on the 24th and 25th; however I still want to see what everyone did. I have a disease and it overtook me, yesterday; so I had to quit my computer. I was in so much pain; and my head felt like it was going to explode. I hate hospitals and didn't want to take a chance of returning. But, I love your cards; especially, the Mickey and Minnie silhouette one. Thank you for sharing! #Bear Love and Bear Hugz!
