Addicted to CAS - RED

It's been a fun week.  My husband and I are having a mini-vacation and having a great time enjoying the sun and sand!  Thanks husband for organizing such a fun trip.

Today is the start of another challenge with Addicted to CAS! The inspiration is from Doni.  Hope you come and play along as our prize for this challenge is a $15 gift certificate to Happy Little Stampers!

Here's my take on the inspiration, looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

I started by stamping the image on my cardstock and heat embossing it.  I like to heat emboss my images when using my Copic markers especially when the image has thin lines---as it helps keep the color from running beyond the lines.

Once the image was colored, I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed that as well.  I then cut some hearts from red scrap cardstock and adhered them to the card base.  I trimmed down the main panel and added a little foam tape and done!

  2. Susan, I saw your card over at the Addicted to CAS blog and needed to stop by here to let you know, that I find your card absolutely great! What a cool little monster. I made some monster cards myself lately, since I really like those guys :)

  3. Such a fun card, Susan! I love all the hearts along the border, and your monster is adorable! Beautiful coloring, too!
    So wonderful that you're enjoying a mini-vacation with hubby! I'm so jealous, given we have 2 feet of snow and the temp outside is 22 degrees F!!!

  4. Susan how cute is this card, I love that adorable monster!
