We're having monstrously good time on the . . .

My Besties Spanish Challenge Blog!

Yes, it's time for another challenge with us at the
My Besties Spanish Challenge Blog

Our challenge for January is
January Challenge #43 - Anything Goes

Remember:  You can participate with ANY project; altered, scrapbooking pages, cards, and anything you can think of.  If you have My Besties images, that would be ideal, but you can use any kind of stamps or digital stamps.
And also remember: You are playing for My Besties digital Stamps!


Today I had the pleasure of colouring and creating with the super cute
Sherri Baldy's My Besties scan0005 mini monster digital stamp.

My card started on the design mat of Silhouette Studio, as I wanted my monster to be part of an easel card with a drawer, so that I could tuck some money inside.
Lots of pieces and fancy folds.

I enlarged the cut file (details below) so that the largest piece just fitted on a 12x12 sheet of cardstock, adding extra matting layers for the easel card and the drawer.
I sized the googly-eyed monster to fit on the card front, printed on textured cardstock (yes, textured), cut with the Silhouette Cameo, heat set then coloured with Copic markers.
I think the textured cardstock worked well with his fur.

I cut all the pieces for the card and drawer.  I die cut some alphas to make the sentiment but found that they were too large to fit on the card front, so I created a digital sentiment, printed it on textured cardstock and cut the fancy shape using my Silhouette Cameo.  The sentiment panel is a different cut file from the Silhouette Design Store (details below).  I matted it with black cardstock to match the card panels and popped it in place with foam squares to make a little ledge for the easel front of the card to sit up against.  I assembled the easel card and drawer, then adhered them together to complete the project.

Lucky last came the coordinating box to "wrap" it all securely.

NOW it's YOUR turn!
I hope that I have inspired you to get creative with your
My Besties (or other branded) images and make a project to enter the
