License Spotlight – Day 5: Hello Kitty & Blog Candy


Yesterday, I introduced to you our Hello Kitty license. I had so much great stuff to share that I couldn't fit it all into one day! Stephanie Jones designed some great projects to illustrate how you can incorporate the Hello Kitty into your paper crafting. I can honestly say that Kelley and Stephanie helped transform my opinion of Hello Kitty and have shown me that you can do grown-up, adult designs with this character. It's a fresh perspective for me, since I used to associate Hello Kitty with lunch boxes. It really never occurred to me that she could be used in these ways!

Stephanie Jones created this soft and romantic feeling card using Hello Kitty from Summertime Fun. This would be a perfect notecard or a great card to send in the summer.





















 Stephanie also created this sweet baby card. It would be great to welcome someone in the world! The Hello Kitty is from Summertime Fun, the bathing suit almost looks like a onesie, doesn't it? And, I like how she's rotated her just a little (like she's being cradled) and colored her up – even in her cheeks.






















Kelley Eubanks created this Freindship one from Hello Kitty Garden Club. I am liking the way she's colored up the outer ring of the stamp. The bright pink pops off the craft paper. And she's framed the stamp perfectly inside the pink paper, which matches the rose embellishment. The rose coordinates with the sentiment and the stamp – it all works beautifully together!




I hope you've enjoyed this amazing week of licensed designs. I love our PSA Original designs, but after this week, some of the licenses have taken over.

BLOG CANDY!  Please leave a comment today and tell us which is your favorite licensed Peel & Stick stamp set and why? We will choose one lucky winner at random to receive that pack. Be sure to check out the entire week posts, if you haven't already, so you can make your decision!
