November's challenge over at the HCCC was to use a stamp that I've never used before. This worked out perfectly for me - I had a stamp set that I was itching to use, and the perfect excuse to use it - my nephew's birthday.
I picked up some great monster stamps at Michael's on sale one day and I thought that they would be great to make some birthday cards for my nephews. Picked up some google-y eyes at the Dollar store and I was all set. Here's a look at the finished product:
I love everything about this card - the colour combo, patterned paper, layering the stamped sentiment over the stars, the embossed strip of blue cardstock that I wiped my white ink pad over to add definition. And last but not least the google-y eye. It all works.
