Greetings friends. There was absolutely no doubt in my mind which item I wanted to feature for the favorites day. The new Monster Set is so much fun! I'm not planning on delegating it just my Halloween cards. This set is going to be used year-round. I just need to match the perfect hat with it to turn it into birthday cards.

Here is what the set looks like:

If you hadn't already noticed, the Monsters line up well with the new googly eye set:

Unfortunately, the googly eyes are currently sold out, but keep a look out for them because they have lots of great sizes of eye (including an oval shape).

Another thing I want to talk about with my card is the use of my background stamps. I think you all know how much I love my Cover a Card stamps, so I used three different ones for the card. I really love the mix of patterns on the card. Of course, you can change the colors of ink you use for very different looks.

I used the Abstract Cover a Card in purple on a purple notecard and the Herringbone and Chevron to make the two strips on the card.

Overall, the card is fairly easy to make. You do have to die cut your monsters to make them "pop," but the card is basically inking and stamping....and of course, covering the whole thing in googly eyes!

Impression Obsession Items Used:

Monster Set CS1087
