Monkey Friends with Pretty Pink Posh

Hi friends! Today, I'm over on the Pretty Pink Posh blog with another fun card from the brand new release. My card today features Monkey Friends and a few elements from Jungle Friends.


To begin, I cut a piece of cardstock to 3 1/4 X 8 1/4", and ink blended the background with Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint, and Forest Moss Distress Oxide inks. I added water splatters and some Forest Moss ink (thinned with water) to my inked background to add some interest.


I stamped the darling monkeys from Monkey Friends and the vines and leaves from Jungle Friends, colored with Copic markers, and cut out with the Monkey Friends Coordinating Dies and Jungle Friends Coordinating Dies.

Copic colors used:
Monkey: E37, E35, E33, E31, E30, E53, E51, E50, R30
Vines/Leaves: YG17, YG25, YG03, YG01
Bananas: Y15, Y11, Y00, E44, E43


Next, I added the vines and leaves to the inked background and attached the monkeys using foam tape for dimension. I then attached my card front to a 3 1/2 X 8 1/2" white card base. The sentiment, from the Hedgehog Friends Stamp Set, was stamped onto a black cardstock strip and embossed with white embossing powder.



To complete my card, I added some Lemon Drop Jewels...they add the perfect amount of sparkle and interest to any project!

Thanks so much for joining me today!!

Then, I cut a sandy hill using the Stitched Semi-Circle Dies. I attached the sand to the ocean waves patterned paper background and adhered the window panel over the background with foam tape.

Next, I stamped the adorable images from Sealiously Sweet  and Tropical Scenes (palm trees) with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored with Copic markers, and cut out with the Sealiously Sweet Dies and Tropical Scenes Dies.

I arranged the colored images to my card, attaching with foam tape for dimension. Next, I stamped my sentiment on a white banner strip and adhered it to the bottom of the arch opening.  I then  attached the card front to a white A2 card base to complete my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Hope you all have a sealiously amazing day!! :)

Hi friends! Today, I'm sharing a card featuring Sea You Soon  from Sunny Studio Stamps newest release. I combined it with the Tropical Scenes and Best Fishes to create a fun underwater scene.
I absolutely love this little set; its the perfect addition to complete your ocean or underwater themed cards!

I splattered some water onto my background and blotted it up, then I added some watered down Peacock Feathers ink onto my background with a paintbrush. Once dry, I attached my panel to a 3 1/2 X 8 1/2" white card base.

Next, I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and cut out the images with the following sets:

Sea You Soon (shark on top, octopus, small fish)/ Coordinating Dies
Best Fishes (crab, starfish, clown fish, hammerhead, shark, sentiment)/ Coordinating Dies


I arranged the images onto my card, attaching some with foam tape for dimension. To finish my card, I stamped the sentiment from Best Fishes onto black cardstock with embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
