Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the Monster Jam Stamp Set and coordinating dies. The adorable monster with the heart beating out of his chest inspired my entire card. The Madison Avenue tags and frame perfectly complimented the monster and greetings!
I stamped the monster from the Monster Jam Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using the Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored in the image with Copic Markers before die cutting with the coordinating Monster Jam Dies. I applied Glossy Accents to the heart and set the image aside to dry.
I die cut the tags and frame from watercolor cardstock using the Madison Avenue Die Collection and applied Festive Berries and Spun Sugar Distress Inks to the frame and tags using the Mini Ink Blending Tool. I spritzed the pieces with water from a Distress Sprayer, let the water sit for approximately 30 seconds and then blotted the pieces dry. On the inside rectangle from the die cut frame I stamped the solid stripe image from the Basic Borders Stamp Set using Spun Sugar, Festive Berries, and Candied Apple Distress Inks, spritzed the pieces with water from a Distress Sprayer, let the water sit for approximately 30 seconds and then blotted the pieces dry. I stamped a greeting from the Monster Jam Stamp Set along the bottom of the striped rectangle using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and stamped the "boom boom" greeting on the frame tag.
I applied Stick It to both sides of a piece of Fun Foam and die cut the foam with the Madison Avenue Die Collection frame. I removed the backing paper from the foam frame and adhered the Distress Inked frame to the dimensional frame. I removed the other side of backing paper from the frame and adhered it to a top fold card base. I adhered the striped background inside the frame on the card base. I layered one tag on top of the other, slightly offset and adhered the monster "inside" the circle frame. I tied the tags together with silk ribbon and adhered them to the card with foam adhesive.
I finished the card with a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh sequins and heart confetti.
