Video: Grumpy Coffee Monster

September 14, 2015

Hi everyone, I'm back with another fun card featuring the monsters. As I threatened you with, you will be seeing some more cards with this stamp set in the future. I love monsters, and these are just the cutest :-)



I had originally intended for this card to be a clean and simple one layer design, but I accidentally smooshed some ink from my finger onto the original card base so I couldn't keep it clean and simple anymore. This smear was just too obvious. My workaround, if I may call it that, was too fuzzy cut out the monster and the coffee cup and mount it onto a kraft card base, which works out perfectly with the coffee theme.


For additional interest, I added some twine which reflect the color of the monster and the brown of the coffee. A few gemstones at some sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope to see you again soon!
