Monster Wishes

Mornin' hens! Can you believe it? Yup, it's one more card made with the same stamp set!  I was having so much fun I guess I just couldn't stop!  LOL!  

Ok, so I stamped my little monster (ain't he a doll?) onto the patterned paper and also onto some white cardstock for his horns, eyes, and tooth! Tee-hee! I fussy cut the images out and paper pieced the monster together.  Next, I added two rows of washi tape to the bottom of the card and then rounded the two bottom corners.  Using a small balloon die, I cut three balloons from the same paper collection and then cut three balloon shapes into the card front.  I added the balloon die cuts by dropping them into the cut out shapes in the card front, like a puzzle.  This makes the balloons flush with the card front which looks really neat.  I put a piece of cardstock with lots adhesive on the backside so the balloon die cuts would have something to stick to.  Using my exacto knife, I cut around the monster's hand and popped it up a little.  Then, I tied some thread around each balloon and then tucked the ends under the monster's hand.  To finish, I stamped the sentiment, added some Glossy Accents to his eyes, and drew some squiggly lines around the edges.  Now of course you noticed those FABULOUS homemade dots too, right?  Man, am I impressed with myself over those!!  I know, I know, doesn't take much to make me happy but I LUUUUUV these things!!

Here's what they look like when you put the beads in the oven...
...and here's what they look like when they come out!  Cool huh?

Okee dokee, that's it for me today!  I hope you hens have a great day! {{{hen hugs}}}
