Monkey Love


I am so excited my monkey's finally came! They are so stinking cute. Every since I first saw them I had this card in my head! I hope you like it! I started with a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" chocolate chip base. The hearts in the bottom right side are stamped in chocolate chip craft and embossed with clear embossing powder. The mellow moss piece is distressed with my scissors and stamped with the new polka dot background from C.C. Designs. The vellum piece was put through my polka dot embossing folder from the new cuttlebug folders. After I embossed it I cut it out with my nestabilities square dies. How stinking cute is that? I sponged around the edges of the water colored piece with creamy caramel, sewed it and then doodled with my chocolate chip marker. Your branch or mine was stamped with my Karen Foster snap stamps. Lil miss monkey was stamped in basic black and water colored with Stampin'Up! ink. I glued the bow attached on top of her head with a glue dot. I used jute twine to finish the card. K now I can rant. I love this polka dot background stamp. When I first saw it I thought it was too close to the Stampin'Up! one. It is not. The dots are smaller and closer together . I love this stamp! I love this monkey set as well! It is adorable. You can find this set at All that Scraps along with the new background stamps.

I love your monkey. This card is so cute. So I assume the snow has let up? It has on this side of the state. But it was a winter wonderland for a good two weeks. Church even got canceled two weeks ago--that's a first for me. Have fun with your new stamps! Sorry I haven't been around much lately--busy doing editing, taxes, mothering, etc. But your blog is always top on my list of places to visit. Take care!
