PMS Monster Blog Hop

Today we have having a MONSTER of a Hop!!! Who doesn't love an ugly cute little monster?!

The Paper Makeup Artists, some of the Digi Artists and some of PMS's bestest fans (that would be ME) are joining together to bring you fun monster cards using Paper Makeup Stamps!

And in honor of this hop, all monsters on the site will be on sale for 1 week using the voucher code MONSTERHOP, of 15% off!

So settle down, grab your beverage of choice and prepare to be scared, um, we mean, inspired!

It has been one of THOSE weeks for me and I am running a little behind. I finally finished my
Me and Pops card amid the handyman's visit and getting my little guy off to school. You now have my full attention. :)

And speaking of my Little Guy, I love my PMS monsters! What a perfect way to make those difficult masculine cards!

My scanner washed out some of the color, especially around the sentiment, which reads "
you mean the world to me". The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark and clear embossed. Then I simply sponged Summer Sky (Memento) to allow the sentiment to pop out and then sponged Bahama Blue around the edge. I popped the sentiment up on foam.

I stamped the image a second time and colored in Pop's head and the child monster, then cut out just the colored portion and popped that up as well, placing the horn slightly over the sentiment. The green corners are some photo corners from my stash.

I love this image, because it can be used for both of my monsters, (Hubby and son)! I'm going to give this card to my son to write something to his Daddy and give it to him.

Since we moved this summer, there hasn't been any crafting done so this feels so good to get back into the swing of things. Thanks Katie for allowing me to participate!
