I knew I had to play with the cute little Monstrous Halloween stamp and die set from Close to my Heart. I'm never into anything scary...and I absolutely hate horror movies etc. So, this set is as scary as it gets for me. As cute as this set is for Halloween, it will also make a cute birthday card too.
To make my card I stamped all the monsters with pigment inks. I used my MISTI, so I could go back over each one with a darker shade of pigment ink. So incredibly easy with the MISTI! So each monster and the sentiment have a bit of gradient color, which I love. Then after the monsters dried a bit, I slathered them with a shimmer brush. I die cut each of them out with the Thin Cut dies, and used my ScanNcut for the lollipop. I used the Sew Fancy die set from Mama Elephant to cut the circles out of my front panel, and popped it up with foam tape. I used a transparency sheet for my shaker card this time, instead of using Flip Flaps as I often do. I wanted more of the shaker noise this time...and it was fun to make since I have a craft room once again! I used some of the paper from the Jeepers Creepers Paper Pack as the back panel. To get the eyes to pop, I just inked up all the monsters in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink and punched them out. I totally forgot that I had the Jeepers Creepers assortment, which would have been way easier, lol...But, I like that the eyes I went to the trouble of making are different sizes. I added a bunch of Pretty Pink Posh sequins, then attached the back panel to the front. I love those tiny Iridescent Star Sequins so much, I had to put a few inside and on the front of my card. My kiddos thought this card was really fun!
