Hello all my very talented and crafty friends. I hope you have had a great week so far.
I finally made it up to my craft room this afternoon to make a birthday card for my other nephew Tanner. His birthday is still several months away but they always seem to sneak up on me.
I'm entering this litte monster in two challenges today.
Whimisical Wednesday Challenge - Make a shape card. Well as you can see I made a monster shaped card and this is my first ever shaped card and I'm pretty darn proud of myself.
Beety Bee's Challenge - Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. For the something old I re-used the white and black cardstock from my scrap stash to create the monster. The something new is the shaped card technique that I tried for the very first time. The something borrowed was the idea to use buttons behind the google eyes to add a little more demension. This idea came from Disney Dreamer Designs. Melissa used this technique on a Bee that she put on my wonderful birthday card that she made for me. Isn't she clever? For the something blue I added two blue buttons behind the moster's google eyes.
Here's the recipe:
Mini Monsters Cart - cut 3 monster card shapes, using white and black cardstock. For the 3rd shape use DCWV Guy Stack patterned cardstock.
Stampenndous Birthday Brackets Clear Stamp Set - Stamp Happy Birthday on inside of card.
Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Faded Jeans - Use to ink edges and detail to monster and use for B-day seniment.
Glue dots - used to attached buttons and google eyes.
Buttons from my stash
AC Moore - 7mm Google eyes
That's it for now. I'm off to AC Moore tomorrow from 10 -6pm to crop the day away with some of my friends. I'll have more projects to post soon.
Have a great Friday.
