Paper Smooches

Aren't these little monsters just the cutest thing?! If you haven't heard already, Go-to-Gal Kim Hughes has started her own stamp company based on her drawings and they are spectacular! Her stamp company is called Paper Smooches and there is tons of ideas and stuff to check out on the website. The minute I received my stamp package in the mail and saw this l'il monster, I thought wouldn't he be cute with a girlfriend? :) I had originally made this card for the Go-to-Sketches Paper Crafts magazine call using sketch number 65. Getting a reverse image of this little guy is super easy, you just need a flat rubber stamp (no design) or even an eraser will work. The trick is once you stamp on the rubber you have to stamp your image quickly onto your paper before it dries (this is using dye ink). I paper pieced them slightly by stamping the eyes and teeth on white and then gluing them right onto the main image. The box was drawn using a marker and ruler and the sentiment was stamped in black first and then I went back over the word love with rose red. Finishing touch was a stamped heart, cut out and covered in crystal effects positioned above the love monsters :)
