I *heart* U Monster Valentine

As I had stated on my PKS Blog Post, I am showcasing two additional *Peachy projects*, that you can view here

Hiya Everyone

Thank you for stopping by and visiting if you are new and hopping over from the PKS Blog.

Today I am sharing with you a super cute valentine's day card that I have created using PK-693 Monster Mash Faces 1 1/8" and PK-296 XOXOXOXO A-2 Background Stamp. I wanted to showcase the versatility of these adorable Peachy Keen Stamps that Kathy has created.

Not only Does the "face" make the project, but using the xoxo background stamp adds alot of interest to the brown cardstock which would otherwise look plain.

**This project was 100% designed and cut using My Silhouette Cameo and Make the Cut software
**The card base  shape and Layers shapes are of my own creation.
**The card is roughly  5x7. i think slightly larger.. but that's okay I will just have to make my own envelope for this one.

The brown paper cardstock is Papertrey ink Dark Chocolate stamped with the XOXO Background stamp using Stampin Up Early Expresso Ink. All of the edges are Inked with Walnut Stain Tim Holtz Distress ink.

The Pattern Paper is from YT24023 Yours Truly 6x6 by Echo Park.

After I cut out my cute little monster with my Cameo I then proceed to ink various parts of the body with different ink colors. I inked the Blue Body with Stampin up Baja Breeze and TIm Holtz Walnut Stain Distress ink, and the horns and hair I inked with Stampin up Pretty in Pink and Tim Hotlz Distress ink.
I then assembled the monster and went doodle overboard like always :) with my
I stamped the adorable face, bringing my monster to life using PK-693 Monster Mash Faces 1 1/8" and Paper trey Ink True Black ink. I added the white of the eyes and doodling with my gelly roll pen.
The Rosy cheeks were created using a dry paint brush and Riding Hood Red Stampin Up ink.

I created the Mini Banner using a bunch of files from Lettering Delights

The Banner shape I created using the Basic Borders SVG Set. I used the singular Scallop and adjusted it to fit my needs.

The font is from Lettering Delights, LD Typeset font that I cut with make the cut software
I finished the project off with some red Swiss Dot grosgrain ribbon that I bought at michael's ages ago, and a black button. I tied some accent bows using Cherry red & Natural White baker's twine from Timeless Twine. My personal favorite.
I hope you enjoy this project, and that it inspires you to use your Peachy Keen Stamps in a Fun creative way.
