Halloween Monsters

I am excited to be chosen as a designer for My Cute Stamps through November. Thank you Holly, for this fun opportunity! Today I'm using images from two sets....Eek! A Monster! and Ooga Booga .

One thing I love about My Cute Stamps is that the images are super easy to paper piece. As shown below, I simply stamped the images first onto Kraft cardstock....colored in the parts of the images that would not be paper pieced......then stamped the images again onto patterned paper and cut them out with fine tip scissors. I used Copic Sketch markers to color my images. I also used a black Copic Multiliner to outline my Spellbinder's Square Nestabilities die template......before removing the die from my cut square. I like the framed look it gives my images.
I finished up my focal images by matting them with Spellbinder's Inverted Scalloped Square tie templates. The main image squares use lots of little stamps from both of my chosen stamp sets. I particularly like the paper pieced scallops from Oooga Booga.
Then I used lots of Halloween papers and ribbons from my stash. The circle embellishments are from Elle's Studio, I love her little die cuts. I used them as moons on my cards.
I think these little epoxy stars are from Making Memories. So many times, I just rip everything out of it's packaging and mix it all together.....so who knows where all these goodies came from.
During my design team gig, I'll be posting all of My Cute Stamps projects in their gallery HERE. Pine (Heather Nichols) was on the previous MCS Design Team so be sure to check out all of her cute projects in the gallery too.
