2 Cute Hula Hamster & a FREE Digi!

Hey y'all! I am back with yet another 2 Cute post....a fabulous freebie! That's right...I said freebie! Our challenge this week at 2 Cute Rubber Stamps is to use the Hamster Hula (for which there are 2 versions!) on one of your projects! You can find this adorable little guy right HERE! Just make sure to link up your project to the 2 Cute Rubber Stamps DT blog by May 22nd to be eligible to win a FREE 2 Cute Rubber Stamp!

For this little card, I colored my 2 Cute digi using my Prismas and detailed using a black Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Pen. Now, the fabulous thing about coloring this digi is that I used some of The Paper Temptress' paper! This is the absolute best paper/cardstock I have ever worked with in my life! There are so many options and so far everything I have tried embosses like a dream and receives color soooo well! This particular paper that I printed my Hula Hamster digi on is Laser White Glossy Lustre text weight. Fabulous stuff! Please take the time to visit Patricia's site and view her amazing product!

To finish off my card, I used patterned paper from the Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride line, the chipboard is American Crafts, the ribbon is from Michael's, and the glittered dew drops are from my stash. I popped up the sentiment, which I printed on my computer using the Curlz MT font, for added dimension. And for those of you old enough to remember, yes, the sentiment is an ode to the totally fab 80's song You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) by Dead or Alive! My family loves this song and if you want to reminiscence, or are brave enough to view, you can check out the video HERE! And the sad thing is, I totally remember when my hair was styled like that! And the dude in the background waving the flag? Hilarious! Gotta love the 80's! Oh, and this card is definitely for my hubby! He's gonna love it!

And, you gotta love the chance to win a FREE 2 Cute Rubber Stamp! So make sure you hop on over to the blog, download the FREE digi and whip up something cute! We can't wait to see what you come up with! Happy Scrappin'!
