Hello Kitty

Welcome to the Hello Kitty Hop! It's the day after Thanksgiving and Hello Kitty is out shopping to give all her good friends presents whether it be cat nip <hehe> or something super special.  Hop along with us while Hello Kitty is getting herself ready for the holiday season whether it be decorating the tree, wrapping presents, or just looking dog gone kitty cute! If you came from CallyAnn then you are in the right place but if you happened upon my blog then you need to start at the beginning at Lynne's blog, Her Craftiness. Here's the list of links sew you don't get lost along the way -- just follow the tinsel as we decorate the town with Hello Kitty!

Blog candy is being offer by Her Craftiness and I also am offer blog candy. I will cut 10 white kitties and 10 Santa suits. I would love for you to follow my blog and Face book page. Please leave me a way to contact you by email.

I didn't think that I could join in on this blog hop, because I didn't have a Hello Kitty digi or Cricut cart. However, I have have been a die hard Sizzix fan for years. When I went to my dies, I happened to find a kitty that just happens to look like Hello Kitty. I was ecstatic! Especially after I found the outfit I was going to put on her.
The card is made out of a green card stock. I used a green with white polka dots on top of it. It came out some Christmas paper stash that I had in the closet.  For Hello Kitty, I first cut out the body in white card stock.  I then cut the Santa outfit out of red and some black for the boots. The Santa suit was only the coat and boots, so  I had to use the pants from the sheriff's costume. The snow that is on the trim is done with Jumbo Snow-Tex. It takes a little time to dry, but is a great look.  At first I was going to just draw on the whiskers, but then chose to use embroidery thread. The eyes, buttons, belt, and boots are just bling out of my bling box. Of course she needed some pink cheeks, done with chalk and a red bow.  I used Christmas ribbon that I had on hand, reindeer for the top and Ho Ho Ho for the bottom. I stamped the sentiment with a Rosie's Road Show stamp and embossed with clear emboss. I just love her stamps. Then I punched it with a Stampin' Up punch. The presents are cut from a piece of Christmas paper, made by Cloud 9.

Of course I decided the inside needed to be decorated too. So, I  added the same polka dot paper to the inside, along with the same ribbons. The holiday greetings stamp is from Stampin' Up. I stamped it and then embossed it with clear emboss. I then punched it out with  an EK Success punch. The I'll take one in every color stamp is a Rosie's Road Show stamp. It is also stamped and clear embossed, then punched with a Stampin' Up punch.  It is sitting on top of a piece of red glitter paper, which was punched out of red glitter paper.  The presents are all individually cut from the Cloud 9 paper, same as the front. Each present is popped up. I added green, blue, and red little ribbons.
