Just Monkeying Around


Stampin’ Up!’s new Fox & Friends stamp set is just too cute for words! I am having a ton of fun playing with it.

For this card, I just thought making the monkey hang would be cute, but what to use? I used the Little Leaves Sizzlet and my Sizzix Big Shot!

The base of the card is Brocade Blue and the central layer is Chocolate Chip layered with Old Olive. I stamped the large grass stamp from Inspired by Nature in Always Artichoke on that layer and then added a layer of Artichoke cardstock and some Pumpkin Pie grosgrain.

For the tag part, I used Chocolate Chip cardstock and layered it with Whisper White. I first stamped the monkey in Chocolate Chip and then added the leaves. I coloured over the leaves with my Chocolate Chip marker to make it look like the tail is hanging over.

I then added some final embellishments and voila!

I’m heading off to Leadership very early tomorrow morning so my posts over the next few days may be sparse but I’ll try my hardest to stop for a minute with my iPhone and update you all!
