Honey I Shrunk the Kit-Monster Madness

A very Happy Weekend to all,

Our team of 'Honeys' have been virtual crafting again with what we call 'Honey I shrunk the kit'

This time the lovely Sarah supplied a fun kit that she called 'Monster Madness' and fun it was!

I am not so good at using cutie stamps but once I had a play I really did have a lot of fun.

Here is the first card I made:

I used the patterened paper Sarah sent plus coloured in one of the fun monster images, adding the googly eyes and just stamped some balloons...kinda cute!

And my second card-much more my style I think:

The idea for this second card came from fellow teamie, Coralynn, at AAA Cards. As soon as Sarah's pack arrived I remembered this card Coralynn had made which I loved. She very kindly said I could CASE it. And here is my version, practically the same with a few little twists-thanks for the inspiration Coralynn.

And my third monster card:

Here I used the frame Sarah sent and more monsters with my basic colouring plus some googly eyes and the twine Sarah sent.

Card number 1 and 3 really stretehed my creativity and I think not the my best cards but so much fun to do. Thanks Sarah for this.

Here is a photo and content list of what Sarah sent us:

Stamped images (in Versafine Onxy Black) – Stamped sentiments (in Memento Tuxedo Black)
Duplicate images stamped, one on watercolour card and the other on copic friendly card.
Clearly Besotted: Out of This World, Eye on You, Blast Off
Lawn Fawn: Monster Mash
Pretty Pink Posh Peek-a-boo & Stitched Frame
Bakers Twine
Design Paper

Misc. Googlie eyes

Now time to visit the other Honeys and see what they all created from this same kit:

I am also off to see what they have made. This is such a fun way to 'virtual' craft and I can't wait to play with the next kit x


  1. These are great! I love seeing you rise to this challenge as I know cute monsters are not you're usual style but you really made fabulous cards, that are still YOU.

  2. It is great to see what you came up with when working outside of your comfort zone, Sandie! I think all 3 cards are fab - the cute monster works perfectly with the balloons and bright colours on your first card and the way you have used the twine on the third card is inspired. Your second design is so quirky and clever - love it! You have really done this fab kit justice :)

  3. Oh my rocked this kit! You made it totally you and they are all three fabulous! Adorable with a capital A!

  4. Sandie these are wonderful! Sorry it knocked you out of your comfort zone but I can trek you had a lot of fun! They really make me smile! Love the vibrant use of design paper and balloons on the first, oooh now I remember who you cases for the second and the third one just cracks me up! Great use of those monsters aid twine! X

  5. Sorry my comment is so late, the computer went kaput thankfully after my post went live. You did such a fantastic job with the kit. So cool to see my birthday card and I think you should use critters more, even though your not used to them. Love the second card with the googly eye, its so you and the way you used the twine was such a brilliant idea. It was such a fun kit, Sarah did a wonderful job. Wonder what the next one will be like???? Mwah!

  6. Too darn your fabulous cards and those monsters are so amazing!

  7. Sandie, this trio of monster cards look fantastic! I would never have picked that critters were out of your comfort zone!! I love them all, but am totally spun out by your abseiling trio of monsters on the last one- looks like they are scaling a high-rise building! Such a unique twist. LOve it!! I'm trembling in my boots about my kit...hope it makes the grade!! Xx

  8. Such fun cards! Your eyes-one is stunning! (love it when words and images make eachother stronger) Hugs, Gerrina

  9. I love your normal ultra CAS style, but I find it really inspirational to see what you create when forced out of your comfort zone. I'm experimenting with a lot of styles, the one layer is my ultimate non comfy zone, but it's rewarding when occasionally I manage to make something I'm proud of in that genre. I think you did great!

  10. OH MY GOSH! Sandie!! One would NEVER know you struggled with these funny cards! Well done!


  11. What a fun kit you received, and I really admire how you stretched yourself creatively to come up with 3 fantastic and adorable cards.

  12. OHhhhhh wow!!! These all made me giggle- so cuteeee!!! Love these monster-ous stinking cute cards!! :)

  13. Oh my, these are brilliant, Sandie ... such adorable monsters with their googly eyes ... and that single eye with the 'frogspawn' around it ... genius! Hugs, Anita :)
