Pretty Pink Posh – Sending Monster Hugs

Hey crafty friends! I’m popping in this afternoon with a fun shaker card I create this weekend with my most recent Pretty Pink Posh haul. It wasn’t a huge order but it had somethings I have been wanting for a while and was very excited to play!

I knew I wanted to pair some cute monsters with the stitched film strip die, so that’s where I started. Once I chose my images, I stamped and colored them with copic markers, using the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then, instead of cutting a white film strip frame, I inked up a scrap of cardstock with blue, teal and green inks and cut my frame from that. I love how this part turned out. To keep the background neutral, I inked up a strip of white cardstock lightly with black ink.

To turn the stitched film strip die into a shaker, I adhered the monsters behind the inked frame and then glued a piece of acetate to that. I added foam tape to the film strip frame and filled the wells with Wishing on Rainbow Stars embellishments from Twiddler’s Nook and sealed the panel up with the black ink blended strip I had ready to go.

For a little outer space whimsy, I decided to use two of the three layers from the Spooky Sky stencil set. I started with a 4×5.25 inch panel of gray cardstock and inked the edges with gray ink for a little depth. Then I used white pigment ink on the cloud stencil layer and finished the panel off with yellow ink on the star layer. Using the shaker strip as a guide, I stamped my sentiment in the lower left corner and then added the panel to a card base with foam tape.

I used liquid glue to add the shaker strip to the card from and finished the whole design off with black blaze pen on the eyes and glossy accents on the antennae and horns of the monsters.

I think secretly I’m ready for Halloween or something. I keep being really drawn to all of the things I would usually pull out for spooky crafting. This totally makes me giggle. I suppose it’s like those who love Christmas all year long.
