Flying Monster Card

Hi everyone!

Today I'll be posting twice, so be sure to check out both blogposts =)
In this post, I'll be showing you a card I made for two different challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Weather Inspired (I was inspired by the lovely spring weather we're having today =)

Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Card for a child

Here's the card I made:

I used the monster stamp from the Paper Smooches stampset called "Falling For You". I stamped him on some old American Crafts patterned paper, without his arm. I then stamped the arm twice on the same patterned paper. I cut out the monster and both arms, and adhered them together. I also stamped&cut out his eyes and horns, on white&green, and paper pieced them on top of my monster.
I then cut out some balloon-shapes from colored cardstock. I used some different Promarkers and distress inks on white or colored cardstock, to make the colors match as closely as possible to the colors from the patterned paper. I added some twine to the back of the balloons. I also tied some twine around the monster's belly. The monster and balloons were adhered to the background using foam adhesive. I then colored&cut out a grassy hill and some tiny trees, and adhered them to the bottom of the blue layer. I cut out some clouds from white cardstock, and adhered them to the blue layer as well.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Hej Marie

Du har spurgt om hvor store roserne fra Die-namics er når der er rullet. Den mindste roser er ca´ 2 cm i filt og 1½ cm i mønsterpapir. Den mellemst roser er 2,5 cm i filt og ca 1,8 i mønsterpapir. Tak for dine søde ord på Kreative Fornemmelsers blog.

Hvor er det et sjovt børnekort du har lavet.

Hilsen Helle(mor)
