Monster Love Valentines Day Card

Hello and welcome, it’s Karen here today. I’m sure you already know that there’s a fun, new release in the Gerda Steiner Designs shop.  I just couldn’t decide which new stamp set to play with for this post, but in the end, I decided that since it was coming up to Valentines Day, I would go with the “Be Mine Monster” stamp set.   Who could say no to this cute little guy? 


I used copic markers to colour him in (listed below). I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in black, onto the heart. I added some Glossy Accents onto his teeth and eyes, and then fussy cut him out. 

For the background, I used the “Conversation Hearts” embossing folder from Taylored Expressions to emboss the card front. Using a small circular brush, I added in some Distress Oxide ink to the hearts in Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac, and Squeezed Lemonade.  Finally, I popped the monster up on foam tape and placed him on the card front in the lower right corner. Just a super quick and easy card to make. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day! 

Copic markers used:

Heart - RV29, 25, 23
