Brightly Colored Monsters on Kraft Cardstock

October 12, 2015

Aloha, crafters! Today I have another monster card featuring the clear stamp set called "Monster Party". As you might have gathered already, I really really love this set. And monsters :)

Today, I'm giving my colored pencils a workout again, using them on kraft card stock. It always amazes me that I can get such vibrant colors on kraft.


I tried to stamp the image with white pigment ink first, but when you color over the lines, the lines disappear because the colored pencils are not translucent. So I went with white heat embossing instead and got much better results.


I am also really enjoying the WRMK Rise and Shine embossing folders which don't emboss a pattern but sentiments. Just such a neat and unique way to add words to your cards. And it also doesn't distract from the overall design.

As always, thank you for stopping by today and taking the time to leave a comment. I truly appreciate it!

Then I die cut the grass border twice and glued it on the border with the bunnies.
Printed and colored the image with copics, fussy cut and placed it behind the die cut with the...

On The Lookout!

Happy Saturday! It's Cathy here sharing a card today using the adorable new Meerkats on the Lookout! stamp set.

There's so many cute ways to create little scenes with these meerkats! For this card, I've done a bit of stamping and masking of the rocks and meerkats. Remember, when masking, start with the foremost image in your scene.

I start by stamping all of the images I'm going to use on eclipse...
