Monster Halloween Card

Yes, the title & card is for Halloween. When I saw Cuttin' & Stampin' Monster challenge I immediately thought of Halloween. Found it a bit difficult since I mostly create girl things unless you count the Pirate theme things and other masculine things I create. 

Had won the Your Next Stamp set (my artsy stamp) some time ago & this is the first time using. Made this Clean & Simple CAS cute Halloween card heat embossing the monster with Blaze embossing powder that I think it is first time using and then stamping the sentiment in black ink. 

Saw that there was some stray embossing powder that did not get removed before heat embossing & some smudginess in stamping the sentiment but I felt that it added to the edgy monster look. Added some twine.

Supplies List 

embossing: Recollections Blaze emb powder
ink: VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark
paper:  cardstock - Kraft
