Monster Penny Slider Card

Hello, hello! I have a card to share today starring Fluffy Gustav by Jessa from Useless Trinkets, which was printed on a sheet of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card stock and coloured with Copic markers. I blended two to three shades of each colour group and to give the hair a little extra texture, I simply pressed the colourless blender on one spot which pushed the colour away. Aren’t those polka dots adorable? I also used a white gel pen to add details to Fluffy Gustav’s horns, eyes and teeth.




On a piece of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ watercolour paper, I die-cut using the hill border die from the Landscape Trio set twice, leaving a 1/4″ gap in between for the penny to slide in. I painted a loose tree line using watered down Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover distress inks. When creating scene cards like this, the littlest details like flicking inks and even clear water would add character and a personal touch. I painted the ground with the same technique using Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain distress inks.




Once the inks were dry, I adhered a white Wishing Trees die-cut by Simon Says Stamp on top of the tree line with Zig 2-way Glue. The clouds were cut using the die from the Love Makes a Home set by Simon Says Stamp and the (now retired) Fancy Clouds set by Poppystamps Dies. By drawing a slightly smaller outline around the clouds using a clear embossing pen, I white heat embossed it and slightly blended in some Tumbled Glass distress ink along the bottom. I popped up select clouds with some foam tapes so that they looked as though they were in front. To match the background, I framed the scene with card stock in green.




To assemble the penny slider element, I adhered two pieces of pennies with foam tapes, before gluing Fluffy Gustav on one side of the penny with Zig 2-way Glue. I also deactivated the adhesive around the slider with the powder tool so that it moved smoothly. For the finishing touch, I applied some Glossy Accents on Fluffy Gustav’s horns, eyes and teeth as well as the mail he was holding.


Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!


Hugs, Michelle
