Are you having fun yet?
If you’ve been hoping along on the Disney/ Pixar Hop then I’m sure you are. If you are just jumping into the hop here, then please be sure and go around the entire rotation hitting all 12 stops. If you prefer to start at the beginning then click here to start at Shawn’s.
My card is for 3 yr. old Gunner, who just happens to be going to see MICKEY in a few weeks. I watched Gunner’s mom, Randi grow up and our families have known each other a long, long time. I should mention that Randi just happens to be the manager of The Disney Store where they live (this girl loves her Disney!) I had planned to show my LO from yesterday's post for this hop but when I found out they were going to Disney I had this brainstorm of an idea to make Gunner (& his mom and dad too) a card to wish them a happy trip. Unfortunately, I found out after I finished that Gunner is a ‘Tigger’ man! Oh well……….
I hope and think he will like it anyway since the car moves.
The card is 5x7 and obviously is a penny slider card. I watched a couple of Youtube tutorials on how to make them and as most of you know, a penny slider usually has an image that rotates as it slides down the track. I didn’t want the car to “twirl” so I added an extra little brace on the back to keep the car from spinning.
All the cuts are from the Mickey & Friends and the Mickey Font cartridges.
-The car is on pg. 124 and is cut @ approx. 2 ¼ “ high.
-Mickey is from pg. 80 and is 2 ½” ( I only used the top half.)
-The trees are on pg. 125 and are cut @ 1” and 2”.
-The letters are approx. ¾ “.
OOOO sorry, I told a story, the clouds are cut from Create a Critter -- I don’t remember the sizes.
One other project I made that kind of goes with Gunner’s card is a 3D circle mini- album/card for Gunner’s Mimi, who is a great friend & one of the sweetest people I know. It isn’t finished because I’ve got to wait until Randi gets back with hopefully lots of pictures from the trip, but I had to show it so you can see the embossing I did on it with the folder I made. Can you see them? They’re Mickey Heads! They were on a couple of cards I posted earlier this week, but you couldn’t see them.
Thank you so much for sticking with me thru this. (I swore I was gonna keep this post short. Sorry!) Now those of you have visited me on blog hops before know I like to play games so here’s today’s game for the chance to win my blog candy. I would be honored if you chose to become a follower but it is not necessary to win, just please understand you will have to come back on Monday to see if your comment was picked.
Now answer these two questions:
1) 1- If you were magically transported to Disney World (or Land) right now, what would be the first thing (attraction, ride, show, whatever…) that you would head for?
2) 2- If Randy (random # generator) picks you, which of these would you rather have for your prize?
A) a Disney surprise package, with an assortment of Disney themed crafting goodies
B) a brand new set of Spellbinders dies (Large Octagons)- I just can’t get rid of these things.
This hop inspired me to make several projects, (some that I have posted already.) Once I started cutting out these characters I just couldn’t stop. Honestly, they are not nearly as hard as you might think. There are a couple of hints I would suggest:
-Don’t try to cut the characters too small (well, duh… that’s kind of a given.)
-Cut the black base piece (the one with the details etched on it so you have a guide of what pieces go
where.) Then cut all the smaller pieces out of white & just color them with your markers the
color you want/need.
-Don’t remove the pieces from your cutting mat until you are ready to use that particular piece.
-Keep your handbook where you can see it as a guide. (Remember how you kept the jigsaw puzzle box
where you could see it when putting puzzles together?)
-Start with the bigger pieces and then fill in with the smaller ones.
Here’s the list for the rest of today’s magical journey, Your next stop is Kathy.
Thank you Shawn and Melissa for letting me be a part of this fun hop, and don’t forget to come back to Shawn & Melissa’s tomorrow to see the line up for the projects for day 2.
Make it a great day for as many people as you can today. It WILL come back to you!
