Hello everyone. It’s time for a new challenge at Less is More (LIM). The theme this week is Monsters. It’s a fun one and definitely not limitrd to Halloween. Once again, our wonderful sponsor this month is Uniko.
I only had one card for this week, but when I saw how similar it was to the card by my teamie Susan, I ended up making this Christmas card too. Stamped the monster and hat with Memento black ink on snippets of X-Press It paper, coloured with Copics then die cut out. The snowflakes (discontinued) and MonsterHoliday Wishes greeting were white heat embossed on a snippet black stitched circle diecut. Although the sentiment was a mix of stamps from two different companies, I was pleased to see the fonts matched! The diagonal stripes is a snippet of washi tape.
And here’s the card that was similar to Susan’s and as my teamie Anita puts it – great minds think alike. 😂 Stamped the monsterimage with black Memento ink on a Wonky Stitched X-Press It rectangle. Used the coordinating die to die cut a mask. Quick since fussy cutting was not required. Plus it leaves a white border. Masked the monster then blended gray ink through a Radiating Rays stencil. Coloured with Copics and black heat embossed the sentiment. Added Crystal Glaze to the balloon and a few gumdrops to finish.
Hi there, I’m back today with my final post this month as a guest designer for Your Next Stamp (YNS). This month the DTs and GDs were dared to create a project around the theme Color Me Happy. All projects can be seen on the YNS blog. Make sure to leave a comment on that post for your chance to win a stamp set of your choice. And now my card.
The idea behind my card is it’s a monster birthday party and there is always that one in attendance who just gets “carried” away! 😂😂😂
This was pretty straightorward. All images were stamped with Memento black ink and coloured with Copics on a stitched X-press It rectangle panel. The masking technique was used, including the modified floating monster. The balloon string wrapped around the ankle was drawn in with a black Copic multiliner The sentiment was white heat embossed on black cardstock.
Once the panel was adhered to a white top folding card base, glossy accents on the balloon and a few white gumdrops were added to finish off the card. I found my supply of googley eyes and added them afterwards and it made it even more fun!
