Is he not the cutest ever!!! I love him!! This was the easiest card ever. Now Dawn used the This Way arrows punch from Stampin' Up! - not a punch I have, so I used the dog tag looking punch, the name escapes me at the moment. I think this looks more authentic of Frankenstien, the knobby things on his neck. Who could ever be afraid of this little guy!?
Supplies: Old Olive cut at 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2. Lavendar Lace 4 1/4 by approximately 2", and cut the jagged "hairline" - (2) 1 1/4" white circles, (1) 1 1/4" Old Olive circle cut in half, (2) 1" black circles, (1) Old Olive circle cut in half, (2) Going Grey dog tags. Adhere hair to top of card close to score line. Adhere black circles to white circles and adhere below hairline. Soften the edges with Old Olive and sponge of half the 1 inch Old Olive circle and adhere between the eyes for his nose. Soften the edges of the two halves of the 1 1/4" Old Olive circles. Back with dimensional adhesive and place over the eyes. With a black marker draw a line for the mouth with stitch lines. Place another "scar" where his cheek is. Adhere the Going Grey tags to either side of his "neck." With a white gel pen or other white marker to add a bit of detail in his eyes - his twinkle. Done!
Now, Dawn had a stamp that I can't remember what it's called, I don't personally have the set, but it has a sentiment that says: Friend. Good. Frankenstien --I wanted to re-create something like that, so I found a dollar stamp that says Friends, but blocked off the s.
I hope you like it!!!

Anyway, this is Group 1 of my monthly card swap. The image was provided by September's hostess, it's Halobella from Stamping Bella. I used my Stampin' Write markers to color her dress, I used the Twinkling H2Os to color her wings and Lumiere paint with Diamond Dust (warning: don't rub your fingers over the Diamond Dust - it will cut you finger!) to bring the cloud to its billowy presence. I also had more fun with the rectangle Nestibilities (gotta love these!) and I also got a new punch. It's a border punch from Fiskars. I also used PTI Tags, Bags and More set to stamp the metal edge circle and used a (yes I actually used them) sugar-coated purple brad to adhere the tag. Of course, no Melissa project is complete unless it has ribbon. The decorative paper also provided by the hostess is really pretty cloud paper.
I hope you like it!

I have a card to share with you that I made last week. This is a card I made for my friend LJ's swap. I just ordered two of the new Cuttlebug border embossing folders. LOVE THEM! I also used PTI's Women of Life set and my new scallop rectangles Nestibilities dies. Love these, too!!
