Eye Monster

This is the second card for Hambos Hoedown. When I found this free digi in my inbox this morning I smiled BIG! I love monsters an this Eye Monster is adorable. I got busy right away this morning so I could get this card in the mail.

The base of the card I have had put together a couple of weeks. When my Sammy was here she told me how much she liked the combination so I used it. I printed the image out on some Prima patterned paper that I love and then cut the image out. Because the words printed next to the image I chunked them up into small pieces. I placed the words inside a Sizzix die heart. For the image I colored in just a few places with my Copic markers and then added some Spica glitter pen. The heart eyelets are Creative Impressions.

Here is a link to  Hambos. You can get to the blog via the button on my sidebar. They have great digis and also rubber stamps.


Since my friends received their valentines it is time to add the cards here. I got busy with other cards this year and made very few valentines. Such is life.

The card with the animal was made with a freebie digi. I glossed up the balloons with Diamond Glaze. The tag was made with a Sizzix die. The heart is a fuzzy little brad that my friend Peggy sent me. Thanks Peggy. The paper is from Basic Grey. Ribbon from my stash.

The card with the cupcakes has a digi image by Hope Jacare. I love her artwork. I colored with Copics. Added Diamond Glaze on the cakes icing. Mounted it on my newest Nestability die cut. The heart paper is older than the hills. No idea who makes it.

The card with the topiary tree is an image from Inky Antics. Also colored it with Copics. Used Diamond Glaze on the hearts. (Do I love Diamond Glaze? Oh yes!) The chipboard V is from my stash. I covered it with paper, painted with Twinkling H2Os and then put through my Cuttlebug.
