OCC...We're Good Together
This week's hostess is Lori Rider and the challenge for us is: Cut it Out: Use a technique that requires cutting (fussy cutting, paper piecing, out of the box, etc.).
I have another Make a Monster Card for you, this actually the first card I made with this set, the others followed that I showed you earlier this week. I was inspired to make this card when I was shopping with my DD at a local Big Box Store and we went down the Valentine aisle and she showed me some stuffed animals she had seen and thought was very cute. They where pink and red Monsters/Aliens, some had only one eye and some had antennas with hearts and they where just so cute and soft and cuddly. I immediately thought of the Make a Monster Stamp Set that I got this past summer and had never used. I new I could make a cute Monster Valentine, and this is what I came up with.
I stamped the two monsters out onto some white card stock ands colored them in with my copics. I then cut them out and added them to the BG piece. I added a layered heart that was cut with the heart to heart embosslit and the full heart punch. The sentiment comes from the Full of Love Set. The card is not a standard size card, I had a piece of real red card stock on my desk that I decided to use for the base. The base size on this one is 4-1/4" x 5". I then added some pretty in pink card stock the designer paper is from the Play Date paper pack. The bottom half of the BG piece is also pretty in pink that is embossed with the square lattice EF. I added some rick-rack from my stash. I then added a button to the sentiment flag and a few silver pearls and alot of piercing around the image and BG panel.
I hope you’ll play along this week and have fun with this challenge! Be sure to check out the rest of the OCC design team creations!
