FM54 Muppet-Inspired Project for the Kiddos

Today Holly brings us a kid-themed challenge at the Friday Mashup.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project using "Your Favorite Muppet Color Combo".
  2. Or Make a project " for kids".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a " Project for a Kid using your Favorite Muppet Colors".

Little Missy and I went through a lot of iterations with this project. "What is your favorite muppet?" "Miss Piggy." Of course, since Piglet is her best friend. Ok, we'll start with pink and a pig. Then to YouTube to show her some examples of the Muppets... ♪mahna mahna, do do do do do....♪, oh sorry. Then her realization that Muppets are puppets. Then drag out the puppet stage and make some videos (which she said I needed to put on YouTube! Can you imagine, these days it isn't good enough to video tape yourself and watch it? At four, she already wants to be YouTube star so everyone can look!). Well, from Muppets to puppets to puppet stage to a puppet card inspired by a winning Stampin' Success project by Carrie Gaskin. As I type, Little Missy is excitedly playing with this puppet card. Kid tested and approved! :)

The stage part of the card was created out of a diorama card, seen better in the picture below. I had to use orange on the tractor as a shout out to my father and his Allis Chalmers.

Stamps: Barnyard Buddies; Paper: Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa DSP, Old Olive DSP; Ink: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride, Going Gray, Early Espresso; Accessories: Window sheet, Cupcake builder punch, Perfect Polka Dots EF, Top Note die, Big Shot, Popcicle sticks.

Thanks for stopping by!
