New Year–New Stash!

Living in Canada is a beautiful thing!  Dealing with the extreme weather conditions is not so beautiful!.  Last week we suffered through days of frigid cold weather.  One day it actually went down to –55 C. with the wind chill.  Today it’s plus 7 C. and pouring rain.  I see lots of icy roads in my future!  On the plus side it’s a perfect day to play around with some of my new Christmas stash.

One of my favorite things is receiving Simon Says Stamps kits.  I just got the January card kit.  I decided to start making a Valentine’s Day card since the kit was all about Valentine’s day. 

Here is a cute little picture of my creation!


I love the little monster.  It’s nice to have something fun instead of always mushy…lol.  Everything on the card is from the kit.  Except for the dies and ink.  The black washi tape is from another card kit from last year.  It’s hard to tell from the picture but the layering card stock is a dark grey and not black.  I paper pieced the little monster and used sakura glazed pens on the eyes and tongue.  I got the idea to paper piece the monster from the insert that comes with the kit.

Supplies: SSS Only Have Eyes For You Stamp Set, 6x6 paper pad Fancy Pants Beloved Collection, Hero Arts Clear Gemstones, Bazzill card stock – marshmallow and dark grey.
