A La Card Monkey Challenge Guest Designer

Good morning, Friends! I hope your weekend is off to a fantastic start! It is definitely much colder around here! I think it should be a little warmer today, though. Nick has a soccer game later today and I do hope it warms up for that!!

I am excited to announce that I have been asked to be a guest designer at A La Card Monkey weekly challenge blog! Here is the super fun sketch they have for us!

So many fun ideas to use with these shapes! I used an idea that I got from my friend, Becky and combined it with this sketch. Take a look!

A cute and fun Halloween card! My card base is Basic Black with another piece of Basic Black that was cut down to which I glued my squares to. Then I punched squares using the 1 1/4" square punch - three of Rich Razzleberry, three of Pear Pizzazz, and three of Peach Parfait. Then I used the 1" circle punch to punch circles - two of Rich Razzleberry, two of Pear Pizzazz and two of Peach Parfait. Then I stamped the three images from the Batty For You set in black StazOn on Whisper White and punched out just the images using the 1" circle punch. The image circles are popped up onto the squares while the rest of the circles are glued flat. The squares are glued flat to the Basic Black piece and then to the card. I took a strip of Whisper White and stamped the greeting from Grateful Greetings and flagged the ends. This is popped upon to the card and then I added two rhinestones at each end. 

I hope you will take a look at the rest of the creative ideas at A La Card Monkey to get more inspiration! Then make your own project and upload it to their site. I look forward to seeing what you will do with this great sketch! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  3. I love your card. Thanks so much for being our Guest Designer this week! I think it's cool that you have circles in the squares where there are no images. Very attractive card!
