Saturday Stamp day – Monstrous Birthday + COUPON CODE

Hello everyone. It’s Saturday again and that means it’s time for another Saturday Stamp Day video. Oh boy, I have been trough a lot to upload this video. First, I didn’t have any mojo. Next, I got my mojo back but the lighting outside was so bad that I couldn’t film. After a long wait, I was finally able to film the video. Then when I tried uploading it, my MacBook crashed. My MacBook is still broken so my dad is taking a look at it. In the meantime, I uploaded and edited my video on our other computer. Phew. What a day.

For today’s card I used the fairly new Monster Party stamp set from Create A Smile. This stamp set makes me oh-so happy. These monsters are too adorable for words. The best part? They don’t look scary at all. ๐Ÿ™‚

First, I colored my favorite monster of the stamp set using Copic markers. A lot of people are looking for a good combination of pink Copic markers and I think I finally found one that most of you will like. The colors I used are RV0000, RV11 and RV13. If you use these colors on Simon Says Stamp ultra heavy weight cardstock, you’ll end up with a perfect, pink and blended image. After coloring the cute monster, I created a fun and colorful tag to go with it. This time I used the Stitched Tags die cut set from Pretty Pink Posh. I love this die cut set and I’ve used it many times already. I heat embossed balloons on the tag from the same Monster Party stamp set along with my favorite white embossing powder.

Since I wanted to go for a bright and bold look on this card, I blended inย two different colors of Distress Ink on the tag. I simply masked off each area using Eclipse Masking paper. Afterwards, I adhered some white pom pom twine from Pretty Pink Posh on the tag. It’s so pretty and it’s also available in different colors than white. To finish off the card, I adhered Pretty Pink Posh sequins that match the color of the monster and the tag. Oh and I also adhered these teeny tiny Silly Eyes from PPP on the card. I like these googly eyes so much. They are quite unique since the pupils are very small instead of large than other googly eyes. They are awesome!

That’s it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by. I’ll be back next week with another video for you in collaboration with my dear friend, Laurel Beard.
