Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge - All About Disney

Happy Sunday, everyone!! It's time for another super-fun Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky!! Today's challenges is a special one...Getting Cricky is the last stop on the Disney Pixar Blog Hop!!

For my card today, I used one of my all-time favorite Disney charterers...Ariel, the Little Mermaid :) (Shocking, no??!!) I just love this cut from Disney Dreams Come True!! But....I cut it at 5" and still had to draw on the eyes because they wouldn't cut cleanly. Sigh. The Disney cuts are the hardest for me.

The base of the card is a Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Rectangle, cut with sparkly cloud paper from DCWV's Paper Playtime stack. I layered a smaller Grand Scalloped Rectangle with Ivory cardstock from my stash, and the adhered a Grand Rectangle on top.

I fell in love with this cut the first time I saw it on the Disney Dreams Come True cartridge!! I used a mixture of Core'dinations Core couture for her tail, red paper from the DCWV Metallic stack for her hair, and the rest from my stash.

The heart is from K Andrew Designs I Heart You stamp set, stamped in Barn Door Distress Ink. I added crystals from The paper studio around the edge. "You're my Hero" is from K Andrew Designs Of Mice & Lil' Men stamp set!! This is one of my favorites...such fun sentiments you can use for a wide variety of projects!!

I used George and Basic Shapes for the larger hearts, cut with Core'dinations Core Couture. The ribbon is from Michaels, with a crystal gem attached to the center.

  6. This is definitely a "wow"card, I love that you used the glitter paper..The heart is just beautiful. You are so very creative.

    I still just can't figure how how you are making the base of your card using spellbinders. I think to myself, "did she make a base card then put on the spellbinders on as a layer? But then I think, no, I don't think that's what you did, because I think I can see a spellbinder in the back, then I wonder how you attach the 2 spellbinders to form the base card.. "

  7. Your card is wonderful! My daughter has been a huge Ariel fan her whole life, she would love this. The Disney carts are a little tricky to deal with, but they turn out so cute. I have the "Of Mice.." stamps and have used them a couple of them!

  8. omgoodness. Princess cuts are so hard, and time consuming, yet your card is amazing!!! Good Job!!

  9. Oh My Lisa, this is sooooo beautiful! You never disappoint my friend!
