I have had this cart for sometime now and I haven't gotten to use it like I had planned. Of course I don't mean I had a bunch of wonderful plans for it, but rather I had wanted to use it more than just the once I have in the past.
Oh what is the cart? Hello Kitty Greetings! Yep that is my series of cards for a few days! I think Hello Kitty is so darn cute! I kept resisting it but then when I kept seeing what people were making with it I just had to get it. Well that probably over 6 months ago! *okie feels sorry for poor lil ol Hello Kitty that was stuck in the cart box for so long*. But now she is free!
For my first card I decided to use the airplane cut. I am not sure I care for the patterns of papers I used on the card. I like the concept...just not the card so much. However, my daughter being the precious child she is, said she loves it! *okie wonders if her daughter says such things hoping okie will do daughter's laundry*
The stamping is done with a set of Just Rite stamps, but the inside of the card is computer generated.
I used the D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder on the cloud to give it some dimension and then lightly inked the edges and swirls. The patterned papers are from a DCWV Spring stack from a few years ago.
I do have to be honest and say after I put this one away for a little while and then went back and looked at it I did like it better than I did when I first finished it.
Hello Kitty isn't too bad to cut, some of the smaller parts can be tricky but using Tweezer Bee's are definitely a huge help!
Cute card. I bought the Hello Kitty cart because my DD loves her and I have only used it once to make my DD a couple cuts. I am going to have to pull this one out again.ReplyDelete
I have to agree with Okielady's daughter. I love it. I think the papers are adorable.ReplyDelete
Oh, Okie, I did the same thing -- wanted kitty soooo badly and then kept saying "you don't need it!" LOVE your card and the pp airplane is perfect. (and you don't have to do my laundry!)ReplyDelete
You are the best -- so I will be making every single card just like yours this week (I need LOTS of help and encouragement!)!
LOL LOL LOL -- " *okie feels sorry for poor lil ol Hello Kitty that was stuck in the cart box for so long*. But now she is free!" I've also gotta let kitty out of the box to be FREE!! (Thanks as always for your wonderful instructions and commentary).
I will be posting the .cut file and gypsy file tomorrow. I have started doing two cards to a file if I am only doing 4 of each that way I can get the elements for 8 cards cut at once. *okie thinks that is yet another one of her genius ideas*ReplyDelete
Awwwwww ... now isn't little Miss Kitty a cutie in her stripped plane!ReplyDelete
Okie~ Cute card! This will be another great series. Thanks for all the work you do and share with us. Can't wait to see more!ReplyDelete
So cute! I love the colors...and the airplane...and Hello Kitty...ok the whole thing!!! :DReplyDelete
I'm with your sweet daughter, this card is really cute. I don't own this cart, but am sure I will want it for sure by the time your series is over. TFSReplyDelete
I love the card...Hello Kitty is sooo cute. I think the papers look great and great sentiment too!!!ReplyDelete
Okie -- I agree with Shiane. I like the card. I have a heck of a time with Kitty's bow. You make it look great. If there's a secret, let me in on it. I have a heck of a time with all the paper-piecing.ReplyDelete
Kathy if you notice I didn't add the small pieces on the bow because they were more holes in the paper than cuts I could use! LOL. For small pieces I think it always helps to have a really fresh mat.ReplyDelete
I have had this one for awhile too. I was having a hard time figuring out how the parts go together. I thought it was tricky.ReplyDelete
I love paper on the airplane. It looks great.
Thanks for sharing.
I forgot to ask were is the ribbon??? LOLReplyDelete
Those are really cute! TFSReplyDelete
It's really funny that you should choose this cartridge. I bought it last year to use for my neice's birthday. Which I did. Then I never used it again. Until this past week. I've used it 3 or 4 more times! I am a Cricut card fairy and we had a couple of little girls cards to make. Plus I had a personal card to do. And I used a different cut each time. I love this sweet little kitty! OH and my neice.... she'll be 35 in October, and yes she'll get another Kitty card.ReplyDelete
I love the patterned paper, I think it's just too cute...ReplyDelete
AAAahhhh. Light goes on. I guess I have some experimenting to do tonight! Thanks!!ReplyDelete
I have this cartridge too and have only used 2 items on it! I really like the idea of doing a series of cards with each of the cartridges as you have done Okie! It's been inspirational! So thanks for making me think more about each of my cartridges! :o)ReplyDelete
Oh and your card is adorable! I like everything about it! But that should be noooo surprise to you! LOL :o)
Okie I am loving your cards series - what a great idea. Thanks so much for sharing - Hello Kitty is too cute.ReplyDelete
I love the Hello Kitty plane! I can't wait to see the rest of the series.ReplyDelete
I've loved all your cards but I think this will be my favorite series! :)ReplyDelete
I love the card and the paper. I have her to maybe I to should let her out of the boxReplyDelete
Super cute!! Love the airplane. Love Hello Kitty, can't wait for moreReplyDelete
Cute card. I love this cartridge but I hardly ever make the cat just the other things.ReplyDelete
Yay! I love Hello Kitty!! I've been eyeing this cart too- All of ur work is wonderful! can't wait to see whats coming up :)ReplyDelete
This is one sweet card! Looking forward to this series.ReplyDelete
I just love Hello Kitty! Your card is wonderful!! You always seem to make me want to run to my craft room and make something!!ReplyDelete
HK is my fav! I can't wait to see what else you do with her.ReplyDelete
What a cute card! I love the papers you used. I don't have this cart - I've been trying to resist as I'm not a HK fan. However, I keep seeing some really cute projects with it....I may have to give in. :)ReplyDelete
