Wednesday’s Card: Cute Monster Birthday

Monster Birthday

Quite a change from the last couple of weeks – I know!! And I’m not going to lie to you. This card was not the easiest card I’ve ever made. The video is kind of long, mostly because there are a lot of steps. But isn’t it so cute??!!

I was so glad when I found out that Stampin’ Up! is going to continue carrying this stamp set. I actually use it quite a bit – especially for kid-related cards and tags. They are just so adorable. I used copic markers to color in the monster, but you could use pretty much anything – ink with a blender pen, markers, color pencils, pastels, etc. I used an embossing folder with my Sizzix Big Shot to make the yellow planet he is standing on.

Enjoy the video!

      Hi, if you are watching outside the U.S., some of my older videos are not viewable. 🙁 They have background music that has limited international rights.
