Hello, friends! Today, I am sharing some fun (and perhaps wacky) cards featuring the new Monster Birthday Collection from  Spellbinders. As soon as I saw the adorable Dancin’ Birthday Monster, I couldn’t help but think of all the occasions, other than birthdays, that this little cutie could dress up for. I limited myself to five cards/occasions and tried to keep them consistent, using the monster and some Distress Oxide ink smooshing.

I have a new video on YouTube sharing how I made these cards. I also share how to assemble the new Dancin’ Birthday Dinosaur and the Dancin’ Birthday Dragon, although I don’t have any cards finished yet for those guys. For today’s video, you can CLICK HERE to view on YouTube or watch it below.

My first card features the monster and a balloon from the new  Birthday Balloons die set. The “birthday wishes” sentiment comes from the new Monster Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set. I used Salvaged Patina and Wilted Violet Distress Oxides for my background.

I cut the white card panel with one of the scallop dies from the new Heartfelt Thanks & Scallops Die Set. Each of my cards today use that same die set.

This card features the monster getting ready to graduate! The graduation cap and the apple (which I made into a balloon) come from the Gnome Drive Graduation set. I used a lot of products from the Gnome Drive Collection for my cards today because there are so many fun accessories in that collection! I turned the apple into a balloon using elements from the Birthday Balloons set. I used Mowed Lawn and Mustard Seed Distress Oxides for this background. 

The alphabet sentiment at the bottom of the card comes from the Schoolhouse Messages stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. The large sentiment comes from the “It’s Party Time” stamp set from Spellbinders, which is sadly retired. 

This next card could be for Valentine’s Day or for any day, really. I used Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxides for the background. The cute sentiment comes from the Snowman Hugs Faces and Sentiments Stamp Set. The bow on the monster’s head, along with the tiny hearts scattered on the panel, come from the Gnome Drive Hearts for You die set. 

This next card is a Halloween card, but try as he might to look scary, he is still just too cute! I used the funny little eyes on top of his head for this card. I used Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, and a little bit of Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxides for this background. The bats come from the Halloween Wreath Add-ons die set. The adorable sentiment comes from the Boo Dance Party Sentiment stamp set. 

I saved the goofiest card for last. In retrospect, I could have made a Christmas card, but since Spring is coming up, it was either a Leprechaun or an Easter bunny! My husband thinks he looks like an avocado, and I think he may be right. The leprechaun accessories come from the Gnome Drive Spring die set. The sentiment is from a retired MFT stamp set called “Sprinkling You With Love.” I used Spiced Marmalade, Lucky Clover, and Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxides for this background.

I hope these cards put a smile on your face today! Leave me a comment and let me know which one is your favorite. As always, I appreciate you visiting my blog and YouTube channel

Wishing you all a crafty day,
