Hatter Hat Stands

Today is a start of a lazy weekend where I have absolutely nothing planned on my calendar!  The shock and awe of it all is amazing!  I finished off my Friday evening settled down to a movie - Julie & Julia - which was making me super hungry for something hearty.  In the movie, I just love it when her sister comes to visit.  LOL  So my card for today is another one I had made for the Hatter scrap party last week as one of the door prizes.

This fun card uses one of the Hatter Hat Stands and just the hat from Emily Rose Hatter from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and combines them for a perfect pair.  The hat stand was stamped on white paper then run through the die cutting machine. To get the hat all by itself, I stamped the top part of Emily Rose Hatter then after coloring it I cut closely around the hat. Then I used dimensionals to pop it up and positioned it on the hat stand.   

For embellishments I used some of my many corduroys buttons, which I have a whole box full, and some turquoise lace ribbon.  I wish I had a ribbon iron that I saw used at a scrap night a while ago - it would have been perfect for this lace that was bunched up.  However, my Mom rescued me and brought over a tiny quilting iron and the smallest ironing board I have ever seen.  It fit perfectly on my work space and I think it might be a better solution to the ribbon iron because I can use it for more things.  Thanks Mom!

That's the end of this project and about all I can think about.  :D  Later on today I have a surprize Zombie gift set (really, you'll be super surpized by these Zombies) and tomorrow be sure to come back for a little blog candy!
