The paper is a new paper called Jingle from Close to My Heart, you will be able to order it starting September 1st. I also used a new stamp set called Merry Monsters from CTMH. The stamp set is marketed as a Halloween set of four monsters though as soon as I say this monster I knew I had to turn his head into a Santa hat. I used olive ink for him and a water brush to apply the ink, I really like the variation it gives him. The fur on the hat is done with Liquid Applique, and I followed the directions on the bottle and let the Liquid Applique dry over night before I heat set it. What this does is give it a more solid puff instead of a bunch of bubbly puffs when you heat it right away. Just all depends on the look you are wanting. Another suggestion might be to use fun flock for the fur. I also covered his eyes in liquid glass, a tip from experience is to due this after you have heated the Liquid Applique. I thought about using this monster on a card with my children's pictures with a caption saying Merry Christmas from our little Monsters, though my kids are always angels LOL.
I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two children, which I thank Jesus for. My passion is scrapbooking and crafting. My family knows the camera comes out for all events and activities. Yes my husband complains when I ask him to take a picture of me, though I also want to be included in the scrapbooks which I spend so much time on. Because of my love of scrapbooking and Close to My Heart products has led me to becoming a consultent.
