Simon Says Stamp – Concord & 9th- Monster Hugs

Hi Friends!

Welcome to the Stamptember collaboration between Simon Says Stamp and Concord & 9th!  I was elated to get surprise mail to contribute to the fun today and was happy to make a card to share with you.Art Impressions_STAMPtember 2018 Exclusives_1080

SSS-C9 Monster Hugs

If you don’t already know – I’ve got 4 kids (3 boys and 1 girl).  Having fun stamp sets in my stash is a must for birthdays!  I decided to confetti it up for this card using the C&9 Polka Dot Turnabout stamp.  I stamped it with some pink, green, blue, and purple ink for the background and decided to cut out a window for the top layer using a square die from the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares die set.

I added foam tape to the die-cut panel to give the window some dimension, then I colored the monster and balloon using Copic markers and adhered it to the card, adding additional foam tape in areas inside the window to keep the pieces floating over the window.  I thought there was too much white space so I went back and also added a strip of washi tape to give the card some added interest.

Copic colors used:  B000, B01, B04, R20, V000, V01, V12, V15, G14, G07.

To finish off the card,  I added a layer of glossy accents over the balloon – makes it extra fun for the recipient.

I hope you enjoyed that!  Thanks to Simon Says Stamp and Concord & 9th for the opportunity to create a project for this collaboration!

XOXO,
