Ponymania Masquerade

"Mom...My Little Ponies don't have hooves!".

My eldest sounded offended as she looked over my shoulder to see the layers that I was about to cut out. Ahh...only an expert of MLP will know that the characters do not have hooves. LD had released the My Little Pony-inspired Ponymania collection the other week and I was excited to cut them out. It was a good thing that my resident MLP fan saved the ponies from getting hooves. *phew* Good save, kiddo!

I had posted several pictures of the Halloween ponies on my Facebook page and Instagram but now I am putting them all on one page here on the blog.  The original LD cutting files worked fine but I did make some minor adjustments on the SVGs to make the layering go a bit easier.

My daughters were huge MLP fans when they were little and deep inside, I think they still are. If you have an MLP fan in your life, get these Halloween ponies and the Party ponies. These are fun to put together and remember.....My Little Ponies do not have hooves. *wink*

Happy National Coffee Day!

So I heard that today is National Coffee Day. Really? I thought that everyday already is, since I can't start the day without my Americano. Just for fun, I made the Peepsicles Penguin ditch its ice-cream for a cup of joe. I think he looks pretty cute with it. Heh.

To all of you coffee-lovers out there, hope your coffee is fabulous. Enjoy your drink and have a great weekend!

Baby Boo

Casper? Is that you?

September is almost over and I'm starting to feel the stress. Oct 31 will be here in just over a month (33 days from now, to be exact), and I know that the kids will finally decide on their costumes 5 days before Halloween.

It's the same every year. I'd ask them about their costumes in August and they'd decide on one thing. I'd start buying whatever they need and by mid-October, they'd decide that they want to be something else. Urgh!

Halloween used to be so much easier when they were little. I'd buy their costumes months ahead and be done until it's time to go trick-or-tricking. To her credit, my youngest has already made up her mind. In fact, she has been raiding the closet and putting her outfit together. Her sisters, on the other hand, are not interested at all. I know that they are excited to go knocking on doors with their friends but when I ask them about their costumes,they just shrug their shoulders.

If the last few years are any indication of what's to come, it probably won't be before Oct 25 when they'd decide on what they want to wear. Of course, by then every good costumes will be sold out everywhere. Ack! Hubby thinks that I shouldn't let them get away with their last minute demands but I can't help it. I love seeing the kids all dressed up in their Halloween costumes. Luckily, we've always managed to find some things that work but should they ever not find what they need, I guess I can always make them cut it out of paper.

"It's too bad that the outfit you want is sold out but no worries. Here's a stack of paper and there's my cutting machine. Now go make your costumes!"

Wouldn't that be fun to watch? Heh.

Just flying by to say HI!

Hi there! I'm sharing a card today that I actually made a few weeks ago. Lately I seem to be making cards faster than I blog about them. I have so much fun in the card-making process that I just want to keep going. The trouble with not posting about the card right after I completed it is that by the time I write my article, I would have forgotten how I made it. Oops!

Luckily, it hasn't been that long since I made today's card and so I do still recall the process very clearly. In fact, I did it when LD released their Zoological collection the other week. There are so many fun images in that collection but I'm really drawn to the hippos. They look so goofy and I can't help smiling when I wonder about all the things I can make with them. You know, now that I think about it, I hope that LD will come up with a collection of nothing but hippos. How fun would that be?

The process of making this card is a little longer than a basic shaped card because there are several layers that I had to create myself. For example, the clouds were made by welding several circles together and cropped, while the stitched lines were made from changing the Line Styles of the internal offsets.

The entire background for the card front was print-and-cut while the main subject (hippo+balloons) was cut from different colored cardstock and layered together with foam tape. I used Stickles to add glitter to the balloons.

Some cards like the one shown here may look complicated but by applying the basic concepts of Offset, Weld, and Crop, you can make almost any kind of shaped cards.
