It's just a week now to Valentine's Day, and typically I'd wait until then to post these, but since there are not one, but three, heartfelt challenges going on right now, I'll post them early. All of them meet the requirements for Simon Says Monday Challenge: Love Notes,
and finally, the Addicted to CAS challenge: LOVE.
When I opened the January Simon Says card kit, I didn't think I'd ever use the main image, a little googly-eyed monster. Then I remembered I have a two-year old grandson who loves monsters. Tracy wonders what he'll think of it. I hope he likes it. All the materials for the card except the "Bubble Talk" dies and stamps by Papertrey Ink are from the January kit.
I didn't think Skylar would be particulary charmed by a little monster, but I did think she'd like a shaker card. I followed the directions Laura Basson gave in her video here. It wasn't anywhere as near difficult as I expected, and I'm really pleased with it. I used the Spellbinders "Nested Hearts," and a new die from Simon Says "XOXO Border." The patterned paper is from the "Simple Valentine" paper pad by Papertrey.
Last, a card made with my newest stamp set by a new company Winnie and Walter. As soon as I saw "The Big, The Bold, and The Happy" set I knew I get a lot of use from it. They offered free cut files with the stamp set and I used both for this card. It was really hard to photograph, but I hope you can see the beautiful metallic red paper I used to cut "happy."
I used another new die from Simon Says for the inside sentiment.
And since each of these cards uses a new product (#1 stamps, #2 XOXO die cut, and #3 stamps and cut file), I'm linking up to the new Simon Says: Work It Wednesday Challenge: use something new.
Thanks for stopping by!
