Monkey 70 Guest Designer

Hello everyone, and thank you very much for stopping by. I made my first Halloween card of the year. I wish I could take credit for designing the little monsters, but I didn't. I was recently contacted on my blog from a young woman I've known for many years. She found me via Stampin Connection. (SU demonstrators fabulous web site). When I visited Traci D.'s blog I saw her cute treat bags with one of these little monsters on it. I immediately knew I wanted to try and copy them. You can see Traci's inspiration at:

I was invited back as a guest designer at A La Card Monkey. This week they have a Halloween theme plus a sketch. This is such a fun blog!

I used the 1 3/4 Scallop Circle Punch for the monsters bodies by off setting it the second time around. The legs and shoes are made with the Word Window Punch. The background was made with the Cherry Cobbler Reinker using the rolling marbles technique. The DSP is Frightful Sight. I also used Glimmer Brads, the Modern Label Punch and the Ticket Corner Punch. It was a fun project.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
