Who wants a prize???

OF COURSE YOU WOULD!!! All you have to do is leave comments along your way today as you hop.  We'll pick one winner from a DT Member's blog. 

Let's just say, as a boy mom, I have always loved monsters. The cute, fun ones, not anything scary. So when we got our sample sets for this release I was so giddy! The set is called Monsters Ink and it's perfect for Halloween and just about any other occasion. If you follow me on Instagram (@lisahenke) then you saw my sneak peek earlier this week of the monster party I colored up. I used a few of those ghoulish cuties on my two cards today. 

For this first card, I did some ink blending with Distress Oxide inks and used a circle stencil to create the moon. I stamped some bats in the background from Boo Balloons and added the Boo! Word die (previous released) in black card stock. I made the scene a little more spooky with one of the Spooky Tree dies and then added in my copic colored Monsters Ink. I used the matching Monsters Ink dies to cut them out and then added them to the card base with some foam dimensionals. Here's a closer look. 

The next card is actually the first one I created with the Monsters Ink set. I had this paper that made me think of the movie Monsters Inc and so  I used it in the background and colored up the furry beast to look a little like Sully (minus an eye)  from the movie. 

I couldn't resist the punny sentiment, so I repeatedly stamped the eye image in the Monsters Ink stamp set and hit it with some white embossing powder onto a Midnight Stitched Circle. I love how this turned out. 

I have a few more ideas with this set, so I think you'll be seeing more cards in the near future.
