It’s all about the Veggies!

25 Jan

Ok, you crafty types out there.  What do I have to do to convert you all to loving my friends as much I do?  Which friends you ask?  You know, Bob, Larry, Jimmy, Jerry?  The VEGGIE TALES?  Well, I have such exciting things to share about my little veggie friends.   Cheery Lynne Designs have given the Veggies, their own place to shine.  You will be able to check in with them, and me, weekly to see what mischief we have gotten into.  Please go and visit THE PRODUCE AISLE over on Cheery Lynn Designs. 

I will still be with the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog and will continue to have new things, there, to entice with all of the Cheery Lynn Designs dies.  THE PRODUCE AISLE will be for the VEGGIES only and anyone they care to include:) 

This week, I have a lot to share with you, so grab a V-8 and keep scrolling.  The owners of Cheery Lynn Designs wanted to have some of the Veggie Tale characters to ship to the BIG IDEA studiosBIG IDEAs, do you know who they are?  They are the creators, the geniuses behind VEGGIE TALES. 

Ok,  back to my story, it kind of goes like this:

Cheery Lynn Boss A to Boss B = Let’s send some of the Veggie Tale Characters to BIG IDEAs and they can assemble them to see what they look like

Cheery Lynn Boss B = Oh?

Cheery Lynn Boss A to Boss B = Maybe you could assemble them and mail them off to BIG IDEAs?

Cheery Lynn Boss B = ***Snickers***

Cheery Lynn Boss B to Boss A = How about I ask Jeannie, if she could make some cards or something to send their way?

There you have it, the reason behind today’s and some upcoming creations I have done.  The second I was asked to do something for BIG IDEAs, I knew I wanted to do a family portrait.  I had quite the problem, getting all these guys to cooperate for the picture, but finally we got some good shots!  (Kidding, this is a paper pieced Family Picture)

On this picture, that measures 11 inches wide and 8 1/2 inches tall, I used ALL of the Veggie Tale Dies.  You can view the whole gang(dies) here.  I also used, Picket Fence, Mountains Border, Scallop Circle and some new plates that are called Stitching Plates.  I had so much fun making this. 

I can see this framed and hanging in a baby’s room, a daycare, a church nursery a newlywed gift that says “{insert last name} EST {insert year}.”  I can see something like this used for many different occasions.  They are cute, colorful and HAPPY!!  Here are some more pictures.

A little closer up to see the detail.

I love using rhinestones on my projects and my favorite supplier is: Rhinestone Hue’s on Etsy.  She got my addicted to rhinestuds, which she mostly sells on EBAY.  On this portrait I have used BOTH the studs and the stones.

Before putting this portrait together, the Veggies had a photo shoot individually.

Not pictured are Archilbald Asparagus and Jr. Asparagus.  They must have been out helping LARRY BOY or something!

After I got them all individually pictured, I decided to do some magic with them.  By extracting them from their white background, I was able to turn them into .png files. Now I can use them digitally.  Here are my examples.  This first example  is my .ning page header.  Again, the Asparagus’s are missing..oops!  I used 2 digital kits by STUDIO FLERGS on this banner.

 

 

Last, is my new profile picture for some different sites I am on and THE PRODUCE AISLE.

 

So, there you have it!  My long-winded post.  After playing with these guys, digitally, it sure does get my brain thinking of the many possibilities with my paper creations.  You know that ALLADIN song “A WHOLE NEW WORLD”?  That is what I am thinking.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please visit us in THE PRODUCE AISLE often, we will continue to make you smile!
