Monster Birthday

He he he!!! I love these little guys! I know, this stamp set is in the section called "Growing Up" in the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog. But now seriously, who wants to grow up! I had a blast creating these guys. See, the stamp set is called "Make a Monster" and the body is just an outline and you can stamp in the eyes, mouth, etc. to make your monster look exactly like you want too! Now, I actually made this card for a guy and yes, it's a month late! But, he would expect nothing less and yes, I can talk about him because he doesn't read my blog!! Sometimes it just takes me a little time to get things done (I know none of you have ever experienced that, huh!!).

Now, I did cheat (shhh .. don't tell) and colored in these images using Copic Markers which are artists markers. You all know how much I love Stampin' Up! and their products, but these markers are my one personal indulgence and I'm still learning how to use them. Oh yes, I've watched tons of videos and even took a class! I did add Crystal Effects to the eyes to make them pop out just a little bit! It's just too freakin' cute! Hey, maybe he'll let me have the card back after he gets it!?? (Just kidding).

Here is a picture of the stamp set so you can see what I'm talking about . . .


Isn't it just adorable!!! I know, you are adding it to your wish list now, aren't you!!

Happy stamping!
