Hello Kitty-Card One

Mary of Cardz TV  is doing a series of cards using her Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge. She wants to see how many cards she can make from this one cartridge. She kinda issued a challenge for you to see how many you can make either from your HKG or any cartridge that you have neglected. I decided to see what I could do with my HKG cartridge. I decided I would add on the challenge of using Mary's Cardz TV Stamps on my cards. I just so love all of Mary's stamps. And if you haven't seen any of them, or own any of them, hop over and take a look. I'll wait............See, told ya!!
I hopped into my crafty room and designed a couple of cards last night and this morning I cut and put them together. I will be showing you my first one in this post and in a little while I will show you the other one.
For this first card I decided to cut the cherries on page 31. I cut them at 3 inches and 1.75 inches. Mary gave the awesome tip of cutting the blackout and the silhouette and then the pieces. I so loved doing it that way!! The pieces fit right where they should go and look so much neater!! Thank you Mary for that awesome tip!!! I dug around in my scrap bin to get the pieces for my cherries. The cherry bg paper is from the open stock at Hobby Lobby by Paper Studio. It is called Cherries. I used some Glossy Accents on the cherries and on the little pink pieces, I used some Clear Rock Candy Distress Stickles. I wrapped some Maraschino Twine from The Twinery around the bottom. I stamped my sentiment using Mary's Garden Greetings stamp set. Popped it and the cherries up on one thickness of foam tape, added some red faux pearls from Recolletions (Michaels).
Why don't you pull out one of your neglected cartridges and see how many cards you can make from it!!
Hope y'all like my card!!!! :)

Both your cards look great! I would love to try this challenge too. I have a few cartridges that I haven't used a while. Love that you finished off the inside.

Stay Creative,

Oh wow...those cherries are just awesome! I also love using the black silhouette - it makes the colors just pop right off the card! I could so kick myself for never getting that cart...this is just adorable!
