Eye Spy a Love Monster

Hello!  I’m popping in today with some monstrously fun valentines using the new Love Monsters stamp set from Taylored Expressions.  This is my first chance to use this set and I thought it would be fun to make a set of matching valentines using the one-eye monster.

I stamped the monster directly on some pretty designer paper and cut out with a circle die.  I then stamped the monster a second time on Choice Snow White cardstock, colored with markers, cut out with scissors and then glued it to the first image.  For even more fun I stamped the image a third time and just cut out the eyeball which I added to the main image using foam dimensionals – for some eye-popping fun. *Snicker*

I diecut some additional shapes from red and pink cardstock using more Nestabilities dies.  I adhered all of the pieces and ribbon to a 3.5” wide by 5.5” tall card base.  I finished by added three little pink rhinestones to the red frame and some Cotton Candy Stickles to the hearts.  Easy Peasy!
