While my stamping mojo might be a little depleted I was able to snap out a few monster cards using the new Monstermaniacs stamp set #134972.
Typically I'm not a big stamper in the early morning hours. However, I've had terrible allergies issues this week and find myself flat asleep on my couch every night by 10pm. It's AWFUL!! I love to stamp at night. What is happening to me?
The kids have a busy weekend of birthday's and both asked for handstamped cards. Like I could argue?
I bought this set a few weeks ago and I knew it would come in handy for the kids. Lookie here… it sure did.
I haven't watercolored in FOREVAH! I sure have missed it.
Tip: To make watercoloring a little easier for a small image such as this I used Basic Black craft ink and clear embossing powder. Once embossed, I colored the image using my Blender Pen and Wild Wasbi ink. I love how it turned out.
To make the image pop a little more I did a little paper piecing with a stamp set from the Everyday Occasions Kit. *L*o*V*e this kit. This is where the Happy Birthday image came from. Super cute image and those little banners across it are adorable.
I couldn't leave Alexis out for her birthday friend so I chose the same set just a different image. I used a few sets to make this card come together. You can see the supply list below.
I loved making a little banner for this monster. Looks like she is holding it up.
I don't know about you but I'm looking forward to a weekend I can put ink to paper. The kids have all kinds of plans without Russ and I. I think it would be great to enjoy a little crafty time.
