I recently ordered my very first Queen & Co. kit and let me tell you, I am in love it with. The Love Monster kit initially came out for Valentine's Day, but I did not get around to using it until this week. I mean, look at how cute this little monster is. The kit comes with a variety of dies to create little pom pom monsters; two different body shapes, horns, wings, legs, smiles, arms, a bow to be used as a hair bow or a bowtie, a heart balloon, and a heart for your monster to hold. I first cute out a bunch of the different parts and spent an hour just creating little monsters. It was so much fun.
The kit also comes with pop poms, Gloobers (to glue the poms to the body base), enamel eyes, wiggle eyes, a stamp set of sentiments, and a 6X6 paper pad. I also bought a package of extra pom poms, which is nice because it came with additional colors and sizes.
I made 6 cards in a little over two hours, and had a wonderful time creating. You can view the Queen & Co. Love Monster Idea Gallery on their website.
I also used some circle & oval dies as well as the Big Thanks die from My Favoriate Things, and the Monster Mash Stamp set and Big Scripty Words die set both from Lawn Fawn.
Enjoy my creations!
I am always looking for new ways to use the products that I already own, so I watch a lot of videos and visit a lot of blogs to soak in as many new techniques and new ideas as possible. Every once in a while, I come across something that just wows me, and this technique did. I love it!!! As soon as I was finished watching the video, I pulled out my supplies and made these Thank You cards. My mind is full of other ways to use this technique and the supplies, that I already have, that I can use to make them.
I believe in giving credit to those I learn from. I found this video: Faux Textured Metal Paper on the Jennifer McGuire Ink blog (the link will take you to this specific video). She has some great stuff, so check it out.
The general steps to make these cards are:
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, and Blueprint Sketch
Perfect Pearls: Forever Blue
Stamps of Life: "Thank You" die, silver twine, silver sequins
My Favorite Things: Stitched Stackable Circles
