Disney/Pixar blog hop!!

Welcome to the Disney/Pixar blog hop!  If you have come from Diane at Capadia Designs you are in the right spot!  If you just happened to visit my blog today and want to start at the beginning of the hop, head on over to Shawn's blog at Crafty Chic's Blog.

My nephew just loves the movie Cars, so I knew I had to make him a card for his birthday with Lightning McQueen.  I used Make-the-Cut's trace feature to trace a coloring page I downloaded from the internet, then used the Chomas Creations embossing kit to emboss the design on a metal sheet.  I can't wait to see how excited he is to get this card!
I'm also trying to use up some of my stash, so I added some square brads I've had around forever as well! The paper is Echo Park.
Now for a give away!!!  I'm going to do something a little different this time around, as I really just want to know!  Answer this question in your reply... Before today, had you heard of the Chomas Creation's line?  If yes, do you remember where you heard about it?  If no, feel free to tell me what you think!  You don't have to follow my blog to win, but why not?  I add tons of ideas weekly!
If you take the time to answer my questions, you have a chance to win a Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder for either the Cricut or Silhouette and a 10 pack of mini gel pens in glitter or assorted.  One chance per person, and you have to leave me a way to get a hold of you!  I will add the winner to my blog Monday, and contact you if you leave contact info.  You have one week to get back to me with your info!
Also don't forget to use the coupon code mycutsearch10 at checkout to save 10% off the entire Chomas Creations line!

Also start at Crafty Chic's blog tomorrow for another line up in the Disney/Pixar blog hop with even more projects to check out!

I love the card you etched for your nephew. He is really lucky. I've never tried anything like that. I have been following your blog but didn't realize you had a line of products. Guess I didn't realize you two were the same thing.

Hi Amy,
It is soooo nice to be able to stop/hop over to your blog. You were soooooo VERY helpful way back to guide me through using gel pens, & when I bought your holders, I was very pleased. Thanks. Your card is wonderful & I'm sure since "little boys" & "big boys" love car cards, he'll love the one you made.
TFS & hope you can stop by and see the Disney l/o I did after being inspired by this hop.

Unknown said...

Love your cars card!! I first heard about you on the regular old Cricut MB before there was a circle. I was lucky enough to win a set from you during a blog hop! Love using the pens (in fact I need some more black) and I would love to try the metal with the embosser......

Glad to be in this hop with you ~ love your spin on the cricut projects!!

thanks mema

Kwilt said...

What a great card Amy! :)
Ummmm...let's see...yes, I've heard about Chomas Creations before today. There was this one chick on the Cricut MB that came up with a brilliant idea for a pen holder...and then she kept coming up with other great holders for a couple different sized markers. The enabling continued and now she has this awesome line of holders, embossing and engraving tools....she just doesn't stop with her fantastic ideas. Some people call her an ENABLER...I like to affectionately call her the ULTIMATE ENABLING QUEEN! (she also goes by the name of Amy);) LOL

Thanks for the invite to this fun blog hop!

Cozy Crop House said...

Hi Amy;
Yes, I have heard of Chomas's Creations but have not tried them yet. I don't recall where I heard of them...maybe Custom Crops?
I like the fact that you can use mini-sharpie markers in your Cricut, and can emboss and engrave as well.
You can email me at cozycrophouse(at)gmail.com.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Unknown said...

I had heard about Chomas creations a little bit quite a while ago when someone was asking about it on the yahoo groups. I have a craftrobo (like the silhouette) and my DH had made me a pen holder for my Sakura pens... I got tge cricut last April and saw postings about them again the last 6 months or so.
Im not sure how often I'd use them so haven't justified the cost yet buy I'm really liking all the things youve posted with the engraving/embossing tip!!

Anonymous said...

This is the coolest looking card! I love how McQueen turned out. Just simply amazing.

Stacey said...

WOW! Now that is one COOL card!!! I have not heard of Chomas before today and I am intrigued :) Did you do the imbossing with your cricut?? I had looked into getting MTC but was told that it would no longer work with the Cricut and that is all I have. I would love to be able to create the embossed metal as decor for my boys' room.

Beautiful card. The first time I heard about Chomas was at Custom Crops. I bought from your sharpie holder.

Unknown said...

I absolutely LOVE the card you made for your nephew!

I had heard of Chomas Creations previously....I've been coveting your pen holders for quite a while now. I want them SOOOO bad...I don't remember exactly how I originally stumbled upon your blog and your store, but it was when I first got my Cricut back in Dec & I was trying to learn as much as I could. You were one of the first crafty blogs that I started to follow. I didn't even understand HOW the pens worked at that point in time but I wanted your holders to try. I've still not been able to purchase them as of yet... Thanks for this opportunity...I sure hope I win! :)

Juliana T said...

I heard about your gel pens from the other blogs on the disney pixar blog hops..that's where I first heard about you. Thanks for the chance to win!

Julianne said...

No, I've not heard of the Chomas Creations before. However, I've always been interested in embossing. I have a sizzix machine with the embossing folders and embossing craft punches. I've moved on up to a Cricut Expression and I'm thrilled to learn about Chomas Creations for it.
