You're a Cheeky Monkey

Hey, everyone! It's Lynnea and I'm back with another card....or five! I made a set of four simple cards and one that's a bit more stepped up! Would you like to see them? Let's start with the main attraction.

Isn't this little monkey just the cutest?! I mean....really. He is from the My Favorite Things Cheeky Monkey Stamp Set. And the shop has matching dies, too! Since I wanted to do some Copic coloring I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp my monkey and his bananas. I stamped the monkey on a small piece of cardstock that I found and I stamped my banana background on a piece of heavy weight cardstock. I colored my images using various colors of Copic markers. I used scissors to cut out my little guy, but like I said there are matching dies so you could definitely take advantage of that!

After I colored my banana background I used some Fossilized Amber Distress Ink to give my piece some color. I die cut it using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Dies. I also cut a smaller rectangle and stamped my sentiment in the middle. I added quite a bit of glitter with a clear Wink of Stella glitter marker and with a Gelly Roll Stardust pen. I added my sentiment rectangle and the little monkey with foam squares and that's it! Super simple!

Since I had my supplies out all ready, I thought I would make some more cards. I make a lot of duplicates of my cards and make them into sets. My family and friends do a lot for me and a little card set is a great way to say "thank you" to them! I made four more cards. I stamped and colored my monkeys the same way and popped them up with foam squares. I stamped the sentiment right onto the card. These really were so easy to make! And you could use any image at all to make a quick matching card set!

I hope you've enjoyed these cards! Head over to the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Shop to get all of your crafty things...including these monkeys from My Favorite Things! I'll see you all soon!
