FM54: Ode to Beaker

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project using "Your Favorite Muppet Color Combo".
  2. Or Make a project " for kids".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a " Project for a Kid using your Favorite Muppet Colors".
Don't forget to tell us or Show us who your Favorite Muppet is!

Holly has the cutest challenge for everyone this week at The Friday Mashup!   With the rebirth of the Muppets, what better time to relive our childhood days and make a card using our favorite character?!    I chose to use my second (well, technically third) favorite, Beaker!   I didn't think Statler and Waldorf would make for a very fun kids card.  :)   I just love the Muppets.  Every time I think of them, I think of this video that Jason and I find ourselves singing a lot.  It's always a competition to start first and make the other person have to do Animal's part!  :)

I wasn't sure exactly what Stampin' Up! colors Beaker would translate to, but I settled on Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait, and Tangerine Tango. 
Do you think I got close?  LOL   After solving the hard part of colors, I decided to mash it up into a kids card using one of my favorites, Fox & Friends!   I had to sneak in my new stamp set too of course.  Next time you guys need to tell me I'm missing out on a "fabulous" set; why didn't I get it sooner?!   :)   

I hope you enjoyed my card for this week and will find some time to come play along with us! 


  1. Adorable Rita! I think you nailed the colors for Beaker!

  2. You've picked the colours perfectly and Fox and Friends looks fab. Love the extra little flower on the fox. x

  4. I think you channeled Beaker perfectly! I just had to go watch that video that you posted and now that song is sooo stuck in my head,lol! This card is fantastic and uses two of my most favourites colours-Blushing Bride and Peach Parfait! (I will shed a few tears when these colours go and in my opion Blushing Bride should be the one and only Pink that never retires). I love all the little details you added easpicialy the flower on the fox, too cute!

  5. Oh I love Beaker! All those little squeaks and the way that only his bottom lip moves makes him on the top of my favorite Muppet list too!

    You totally got the colors right for your cute card!

  6. Good ole Beaker - gotta love him! You card is wonderful - the colours are perfect.

  7. "It's time to play the music...It's time to light the lights"....I LOVE the Muppets and you have channeled Beaker perfectly on this adorable card, Rita! Too stinkin' cute! I hope to have a chance to play along this week. Hugs! :)
