Eye Think You're Neat

I just added the new Monster Mash set from Lawn Fawn to my stamp collection.  I love that it works great for Halloween cards, but it can also be used year round.  On this card I paired the stamp set with some fun patterned paper and the sketch from this week's challenge at The Paper Players.

Eye Think You're Neat card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn
I  cut a piece of eye patterned paper into 1 inch pieces, then arranged the pieces on an olive green panel.  After adhering the olive panel to a kraft card base, I stamped the set's "eye think you're neat" sentiment beneath the panel in green pigment ink.  I almost stopped there, but decided to add one of the set's little creatures to the card.  The one-eyed spooky guy was stamped in black ink on white cardstock and shaded just a bit with Copic markers.  I used the matching Monster Mash die to cut it out, then adhered it to the cardfront using dimensional dots.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papers:  Lawn Fawn Monster Mash stamp set and Monster Mash dies; Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Memento Luxe Pistachio ink; Jillibean Soup Witches Brew 6x6 paper pad; Sticky Thumb dimensional dots

other:  Old Olive cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Desert Storm cardstock (Neenah); markers (Copic)


  1. Very cute, Lori! I like how everything works together...from the eyeball paper to the little one-eyed spooky guy to the sentiment! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  2. What a fun card! I love that the patterned paper looks like eyeballs! So cute!

  3. Lori, this is such a fun card! I just love the "eyeball" paper! That little goggly eyed ghost makes me smile! Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players this week! XX

  4. Cute, cute, cute! The paper, ghost and sentiment combine perfectly! Thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge at The Paper Players, Lori!
