Monsters!


So I've sent you over to visit Becca at The Damsel of Distressed Cards before....she is mad talented with paper & ink, and a super funny & kind bloggy gal (why aren't you following her yet? Go do it!). And guess what? She decided to start a featured blogger feature (I tried, that's the word. lol) and asked me if I'd be her first - bet she's a little sorry about that now ;) We decided to both case one of my favourite cards, and WAIT until you see what she did! I love it! (and she's got a little something for a lucky commenter...seriously, get over there!)

Here's the card we CASEd:



I kept thinking I would be inspired by the sentiments, or the colours...and instead I just kept making monster cards!



Supplies: MONSTAH! journaling cards from Bo Bunny; sentiments from Paper Smooches; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Wink of Stella black pen; Cuttlebug birthday embossing folder; MFT stars die; googly eyes 



Supplies: stamps from Daisy Bucket; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Bic marker; Versamark & ZING EP; monsters journaling cards from Bo Bunny (striped paper); googly eyes


Supplies: papers from Fancy Pants; monster sticker from K&Co; sentiment from Crafty Secrets; Wplus9 banner die; Corner Chomper; labels 5 Nesties


So now that you've seen my monstah blitz, head on over to Becca's blog & see what terrible things I said, and her awesome card! Thanks so much for lifting my spirits, Becca!

xoxo,
Jessi

Hi Jessi...I've come to visit your blog from Becca...you two sure are talented ladies....what fun, wacky cards, so bright and cheerful...and why don't we think more of random stamping sentiments, could work for not fun cards too. Your monsters are amazing - teeth and googlie eyes. Have fun, cheers Robyn

Another visitor from Becca's blog! I must admit that I don't do "cute" cards very well. But, I love these adorable monster cards - what great inspiration. It was fun to get to "know" you through Becca!
