Cute and Clean Monster

October 26, 2015

Well, hello there, crafters! Today is my last day as a member of the Gerda Steiner Design Team. It's been a fantastic year and I had a blast to be part of Gerda's journey from digi stamps, to rubber stamps, to clear stamps. As you have seen, I am totally in love with her monster stamp set and this will be my parting card. But hey, don't be sad! I have some christmas cards with the "Peeking Friends" stamp set in store for you that I will share later this year, just in time for the season, so you'll see me back as a guest designer :)



In my mind, monsters are not scary and ugly, but rather happy little critters that enjoy a good sunset and like to chill, just like we do. So that's what I tried to create with this little guy. I did a bit of masking and distress inking and realized just how much I love using that medium.


Of course I had to add a few accents to the little guy with a silver pen, and googley eyes to make him funny. And because I thought it was hilarious, I added a few butterflies with silver ink, then the sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays and voila, we have a love-struck monster with a silly love-sick grin on his face.


I hope you enjoyed this project and keep checking out what Gerda Steiner Designs will come out with in the future. There are some pretty neat christmas sets ready for the season, and I can't wait to see where Gerda will go next year. Thanks for the incredible journey!

 Hey friends...

I've got some inspiration to share today using the gorgeous Gerda Steiner designs stamp set called Happy bee-day....

It's such a sweet set, one I've used many times hehe!!


To create this card I started with a white cardstock base which I masked off an oval shape and inked up using Distress oxide ink Prize ribbon. I then removed the mask and stamped a bunch of the flower images!
