Monster Happy Anniversary

Hi!  I have another fun Paper Smooches card using a really cool technique that Teri Anderson used the other day with this same stamp.  So so clever I tell ya!  Using the back of a large clear stamp, I stamped my monster carefully onto it and then stamped it onto my paper.  Easy and super fun!

Using some patterned paper from Basic Grey's Life of the Party I paper-pieced my monsters onto the front and adhered it to a brown card base.

Hightlighted the monster's horns and teeth and stamped some hearts.  Added some eyelashes to my lady monster and using a pen, I grounded them.

Lastly, I tied some Pure Poppy grosgrain ribbon into a bow and added a little tag with my Anniversary sentiment! 

Super easy and fun!  I just love these stamps!

  2. Those eyelashes are theeee best! Love your creative use of the monsters.

  3. OH this is adorable! I love that set and don't have it yet but I am thinking I need it! ;)

  4. Oh my cuteness. This is darling!

  5. Ha! Sooo stinkin' cute, Lindsay! I love that mirror image technique--I'd never heard of it but it makes perfect sense when you need a pair like on an anniversary card. The big 'ole red bow with the red hearts on the monsters is just the best touch!

  6. Hee hee, these monsters make me laugh! I haven't done the mirror image technique in a while, forgot how awesome it can be!

  7. So, so, so cute! I love these monsters, and I love how you flipped the girl. The paper piecing on the patterned background looks amazing! You rocked this card!
