Happy New Year & Giveaway

Hi and welcome to my first blog post for AALLandCreate for 2018. Today I have a card using stamps from AALLandCreate. All stamps and stencils are available from THE BOUTIQUE.

I also have a little giveaway at the end of this post to say THANK YOU for all your support during the past twelve months.
The cute monster I have used in this accordion is designed by Olga and you can find the stamp set HERE.
My background on my accordion is created using Infusions and I could not resist but to add some googly eyes to one of my monsters.
I also added touches of white using a Posca Paint Pen to lift the background a little and my monsters have also been stamped onto an Infusions background.
I have added a touch of black ink around the edges and added the sentiments from the same stamp set.
I have also added a touch of background stamping using Bipasha's background stamp which you can find HERE.
These monsters are great fun to use and add a reall whimsical feel to your designs.

As a huge THANK YOU for all your support over the past year during my journey with AALLandCreate, I have a little giveaway for you.

One randomly drawn winner from this blog post will win this stamp set. I will draw the winner next Friday 26th January.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

How absolutely "fun & frollicks" the vibe is here! The accordion style card is brilliant to show the cute, mischievous monsters. Those googly eyes are so fun & quirky. Your background continues the fun; liking the monochromatic hues, splashes of white &, for me, an almost "scribbled" look, great for the cheeky monsters! I think you enjoyed creating this😀.
(Now for some reason, I'm scratching my head, wondering why I've not heard of Infusions?)....

Oh just look at those little monsters getting up to mischief hee hee! Super build up of colour and a great shape for a card.. I think those googly eyes were a must add. Thank you for sharing another super creation, it's been a superb year for you and I've thoroughly enjoyed following every minute. All the best for 2018 Tracy..
Warm hugs & wishes Tracey xx
