Hello and welcome to Day One of Craftin Desert Divas‘ June Release Sneak Peeks! Today, the Design Team is featuring the Monster Carnival stamps and Ferris Wheel Dies. These are perfect for birthday cards and scrapbook pages and would be great for party invitations and decorations, too!
I just love that happy little monster! He definitely looks ready for a party! As I wanted to have him holding the stuffed monster, I stamped it first and then masked it before stamping the monster. Both images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics before being cut out with my ScanNCut2.
Using the grass border from the Outdoor Landscape Dies, I die-cut some white cardstock. Doesn’t it remind you of fur?! The stars were die-cut with the stars from the Treat Bag Dies. I backed the openings with acetate, covered the panel with foam tape, and filled the stars with Fall Harvest, Moonlit Kisses, and Skyfall Sequins. I placed some star paper from Doodlebug Designs’ Hip Hip Hooray paper pad over the sequins.
I adhered a strip of monster paper from the Hip Hip Hooray paper pad to the bottom of a white card and my shaker on top. For the sentiment I die-cut a banner with the Flag Banner Dies and heat-embossed a sentiment from Monster Carnival. I glued it to my card, trimming off the excess.
For my second card, I stamped and colored some more monsters and cut them out. The patterned paper is from Bo Bunny’s Sun Kissed paper. The green paper was die-cut with the Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies and adhered over the yellow paper, which had been trimmed to A2 size. Before die-cutting the gray pieces for the ferris wheel, I embossed them with an embossing folder. In hindsight I should have die-cut them first so that the embossing would be more apparent.
After die-cutting the seats, I trimmed a little off each monster before gluing them to the backs of the seats. Afterwards, I adhered the decorative piece to the front, along with the die-cut star. The ferris wheel was assembled with brads from my stash, which allows for the wheel to turn and each seat to rotate. So fun! There’s a short video below showing this card in action. I adhered the triangle portion of the ferris wheel to my card with ScorTape. I decided to omit a sentiment so as not to distract from the fun ferris wheel. When I’m ready to send the card, I’ll stamp a sentiment on the inside.
