Silly Monsters

Hi everyone.....

I have been playing with these adorable monsters...
from Your Next Stamp "Silly Monsters"
I couldn't resist them....soooo cute!!

I have created a bridge card for my monsters
from a great tutorial by Jennifer Mcguire.
Love all the different fancy folds and design
ideas that Jennifer shares with us!!
Thanks so much!!

I am using 3 of the monsters in the set and 
a balloon from my High Hopes stamps. I 
embossed all the images and painted them 
with Tombows. I used an embossing folder
for the card.

I hope you like it!!
Thanks so much for stopping by....

I created this card with a new stamp set from
 Your Next Stamp...."Cool Tees!"

I thought my granddaughter would have
some fun with this set.

This is a birthday card I made
with the little kitty in the set.

I paper pieced the tee shirt and colored
the kitty with Tombows. 

I hope you like it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello everyone....

It has been so long since I have blogged I didn't even remember how to do!!!
It took me some time  but I think I am in control now!!!

Anyway I have been fooling around with different shaped cards, moving cards and 3D cards.....there are so many awesome designers out there....
Thanks so much for sharing your designs!!

I am not used to small stamps but I needed some for the cards I wanted to create so I checked out  Your Next Stamp!! They had just what I was looking for and it's a great Canadian stamp company too!! 

I chose these adorable little owls....Life's a Hoot to make this adorable "pop up shadow box card" designed by 
Jennifer Mcguire.

It was really tough getting a good pic to show how fun this card is so I will try to explain it as best I can!!
This pic shows the shadow box effect.

This pic shows what the card looks like closed.

This pic shows how the owls have moved. When you pull on the side tabs the two owls at the top move back and forth. Cute eh!!

I am going to try and add this to the YNS challenge blog so wish me luck....not sure I remember how!!

Thanks so much for stopping by...
