Love Monster


I must confess I was a bit stumped when I saw this week’s Less Is More challenge theme – ‘monsters’. There are loads of cute monster stamps on the market nowadays but I haven’t bought any as I know I just wouldn’t use them…

Then I remembered a very old wood-mounted stamp from Amuse Art Stanps that I bought a decade ago in Boston! Of course, I still have it because I can’t bear to get rid of any of my old rubber stamps!! Anyway, it’s called ‘Love Monster’ – perfect for the challenge theme!

I kept the card very simple as the image is very small – just a bit of soft ink blending and a sentiment banner to anchor the monster image. I also used a Penny Black snowflake frame to add a little more detail to my card.

The theme for the new Casology challenge is ‘cherish’ and I’m going to enter this card for that challenge as well – a quirky take on the theme!

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. So glad you found a monster stamp to use for this week’s challenge Lucie. The oldies are the goodies and you’ve worked your magic as always with the challenge. Super CAS, super subtle and oozing monster-licious quality! Thanks for playing along at Less is More x


  2. What an adorable little stamp, that’s why we don’t get rid of anything! haha I would have been a bit stuck if I didn’t have the set I used, nothing else remotely monster-like in my stash. Love the gentle blending you added, and the detailed border is perfect for this lovely CAS card.
    Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x
