365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#170 I love the 80's Blog Hop

My Blog Candy!!!
Hey everyone welcome to the I LOVE  the 80's Blog Hop!!! We are celebrating Raven's birthday today with a hop! I would like to thank Raven for letting me be apart of this 80's hop I think it is such a great theme for a hop, and I want to give her a big giant HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Be sure to start the hop on her blog for a chance at 4 awesome giveaways.

For my 80's inspired card I made this super cool totally awesome radio card from Rock Princess. I put some black distress ink on some parts of the radio and put stickles on the white parts. I stamped the large flourish background stamps and stamped and colored the "Live Loud" sentiment. I also added some hot pink ribbon and put a pop dot underneath the sentiment and underneath the music notes, and the antenna too. I really wanted this card to look like a lot of blush on a woman's face from the 80's LOL! So I put a lot of Worn Lipstick Distress ink and a little bit of black distress ink to the edges and really smeared it on. I then added some Yellow colored glimmer mist. What to you think does it look like messy hot pink 80's make up LOL! I guess all I need is some blue eyshadow and spandex!

For my give away of these cute girly stamps with perfect sentiments for card making all you have to do is leave me a COMMENTand be a FOLLOWER! Take care and have fun on your journey back in time to the 80's I feel like watching E.T. or Back to the Future now LOL! Here's the order of the blog hop:
              Raven Birthday Girl!!  Start Here
