Stamp Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the last stop in the hop! I'm sure your head is spinning from all the great ideas you've seen so far. I used the new stamp set Happy Haunting for my card today.
Isn't he just monsteriffic! The stamped sentiment is from the
new stamp set Happy Hauntings. I used crinkle ribbon from
the Hocus Pocus set. I used the orange licorice bakers twine.
The cute little face is stamped with Peachy Keen face stamps
and then accented with glossy accents. I even added
some chunky glitter to the sucker and embossed his belly
with the Mesh folder. Standard A2 size card.
Cuts:

  • Mini Monsters cartridge pg. 30
  • 2 3/4" Monster and layers (I did used my Gypsy to *hide* his face for stamping)
  • MMC pg. 57
  • 1 3/4" Candy

Kimberly at My Craft Spot was kind enough to give everyone in the design team one of the new stamp sets for us to give away as a prize for our blog hop candy. WOW! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and the winner will be announced August 30th. The set I will be giving away is...

  19. It would be so wonderful to win this! I loved everything you posted, but my favorite thing is actually quite small. I love how you used the baker's twine on the witches hat. I often don't think of the clever little touches like that, but it's the little things like that which make me a better designer. What an inspiration you are! http://cricutcouple.blogspot.com
