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!
Etsy Store Update: I’m uploading a bunch of my latest creations to my Etsy Store including these Love Monster cards!
