I'm excited to be kicking off a month of Monster Madness inspiration.  This collection is just the cutest... the little monsters are adorable!  I created a couple of fun swing shadowbox cards.. take a peek...

The fun part of these cards is that one of the icons "swings" when the card is shaken.  I got the idea for these cards here, then made them my own versions using the cute little critters from the Monster Madness Odds & Ends.

My first card features a few of the cute little monsters in the Odds & Ends pack.  The blue ghost guy swings back and forth.  I love that these little monsters can be used for celebrations other than Halloween... they can be used for birthdays, or just because too!

To make the swing, I created and cut a shape like a bubble wand from some acetate using my Silhouette.  I punched some small circles and glued them together in a stack, then glued them to an insert in the top of my shadowbox card.   The ghost is attached to the wand "handle".  I put the circular part of the wand over the punched circle stack, then added a strip of paper to keep the swing in place.  I finished the card with a sentiment from the Chit Chat pieces, and added some shaped star sprinkles.

This video shows how the little monster swings back and forth.

I featured the little spiders from the collection in my next card.  I've always said... only Doodlebug can make a cute spider!  I cut some spider webs using the Booville Spider Circle SVG file.  I added spiders from the Odds & Ends and some eyes sprinkles from the Eye See You sprinkles on the background to make it a bit spooky.  The sentiment is from the Odds & Ends pack.

In this close up you can see how the spider hangs from the acetate wand.

This video shows the little spider in action.

Be sure to check back all this month for more Monster Madness Inspiration!  And be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook & Instagram if you create something using the collection.  We love to see your creations!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
