Disney Blog Hop
Hi everyone and Happy Saturday! Today, I am participating in the Disney/Pixar Blog Hop- and there are some FANTASTIC crafters on the hop, so be sure to stop by all of their blogs to see why they have created!
I wanted to think outside of the box, for my project- so I decided to make a card using my all-time favorite character, Kermit the Frog. Now, most people don’t think of Kerm
it as a Disney character- because he’s Kermit the Frog- he has his own category, right? But, seriously- Kermit the frog belongs to The Walt Disney Company, so I thought he needed some of the spotlight!
Okay, I know this is going to date me….just saying that phrase dates me…lol! I fell in love with Kermit at a very young age, and when I graduated High School– I still loved him….
I am laughing at myself for even sharing this picture right now! LOL
Okay, as some of you may know there is not a Muppets Cricut Cartridge, and I couldn’t even find a Kermit SVG floating around out there- except for one of Baby Kermit– but, that just isn’t the same.
So…I made one, using my silhouette software and I am going to share it with you. You will be able to use it as long as you have the silhouette studio.
But, first let’s look at my project- which I think I am going to keep for myself!
As I was cutting Kermit out- I kept singing, “The Rainbow Connection,” so I thought it would be awesome if I put Kermit on a rainbow shaped card. So, I cut out this rainbow card file from Samantha Walker. I then embossed each of the colors of the rainbow using a different embossing folder. I used D’vine swirls for the Yellow, Hexagons by Tim Holtz for the orange, tiny dots for the red, a tiny heart pattern for the blue, and Plaid by Basic Grey on the green. I also added glossy accents and Martha Stewart coarse glitter to the left cloud. which I cut as 2 layers, so I could pop one up.
The stamped sentiment is from Pink by Design Rain or Shine. To get the rainbow effect, I simply inked the sentiment in different sections, with different colors of ink.
Okay– who wants the super-duper-awesome Kermit silhouette file?! Just click below to download it!
Download it even if you don’t have a silhouette yet, but think you might be getting one! See? Everyone wins this way :0)
Check out the rest of the hop!
