Monster Love Valentines

Hi Friends,

Our DT, Lisa, has been having fun creating a monster sized Valentines cards. What a great job she did with all the colors, layers and cuteness.

Today, She is sharing how to create your own card collection that you can send out in time for Valentine's Day. Enjoy!

Hello! Lisa P here, and today I’m sharing a super sweet and simple set of Valentines I made using DeNami Design’s brand new clear stamp set, CR02 Monster Love. The images and sentiments in this set are totally ADORABLE! I fell head over heels in love with them the first moment I saw them! I kept this project very simple by using a single stamp set and a single layout and just changing up the images, sentiments, and papers for each to get a nice variety of cards.

I had so much fun putting these Valentines together and can’t wait to mail them off to friends and family. Here’s my step-by-step process:


Step 1: Die-cut 5 pinked rectangles, 5 pinked flags, and 5 hearts from assorted patterned papers. Cut 5 squares (2.5” x 2.5”) from assorted patterned papers. (Note: This is a great project for using up some of those patterned paper scraps that are sitting in your stash. And keep in mind you can use any shaped dies for the layers. These just happen to be the ones I chose for this particular project. No dies? No problem. You can use punches or basic rectangles and squares. No patterned paper? No problem. You can use a variety of colored cardstocks, and it will still look great.)


Step 2: Die-cut 5 rectangles from white cardstock. Stamp a different monster image and the word “monster” onto each rectangle. Color the images with markers. Die-cut some stitching lines at the bottom of each panel. Add a touch of sparkle with some glitter. (Note: I added some hand-drawn arms and stamped some hearts for hands onto my first monster to make it look like he was reaching out for a “monster hug.”)

Step 3: Stamp some of the flags with “Love” and some with “Hugs.” Add a touch of color with markers. Assemble cards as shown below.

Today’s post focused on Valentines, but this stamp set would also be great for creating lunchbox notes for your kiddos, encouragement cards, and get well cards. I’ll be sure to share some examples of those ideas in the near future.

I hope you enjoyed this post and feel inspired to get crafty!

Thanks for stopping by!
