Here is my card for today, featuring the super fun Silly Monsters Chill Out stamp set: 

It was LOVE at first sight when I saw this funny winter Monster. The stamp shows the monster with a pile of snowballs next to him but I decided to focus on him alone and not to show the snowballs. So here is a little tip for you to try: use masking paper or Post-it tape to mask the part(s) on your stamp you don’t want to show. Next, ink your stamp, remove the mask(s) and stamp the image. I used this technique for the cute monster but I did the same with the "flying" snowball that comes from the pile! Once the snowball was stamped, I drew two thin strokes with a black marker to give the impression of movement and cut the "new" image out. I fixed all images, the sentiment as well as the circular die-cut with foam pads for more dimension. 

Here is the set I used:
