Little Monsters

There are monsters everywhere today!  On the big screen and on my cards!  We went to see Monsters University this afternoon and had so much fun!  Since monsters are on topic, I thought I'd share these two birthday cards with you.  I made them for my friend for her two boys, who she affectionately refers to as her "monsters".  The monster images are from a Recollections clear stamp set that I've had for some time now.

The first card features a layout from Seems A Little Sketchy (#42). The one-eyed monster is colored with Copics and cut out with Spellbinders Labels Nine Nestabilities.  Papers are Recollections Comic Heros.  I used another Spellbinders die for the stars (Stars Five) and a Martha Stewart punch for the star border.  The number 7 was made using the By the Number My Favorite Things Die-namics.  And of course, what monster is complete without a googly eye?!?!

And here is the other one.  This monster is also colored with Copics and googly eyed! 

Sketch is from Mojo Monday (#299). Papers are Basic Grey - Lime Rickey (Hoboken and Tart & Tiny).  I used Spellbinders Classic Circles Nestabilities and My Favorite Things Fishtail Banners Die-namics.  The banner is embossed with a chevron pattern.  American Crafts Thickers and some fun ribbon complete the card.

Here are a couple of photos of my own little monster, having a monster of a good time today!

 I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!  It's a short week here in the US with the July 4th holiday!  I am looking forward to fireworks and barbeques!  Summer is in full swing and we are definitely enjoying it!

Thanks for stopping by!
