Little Monkey - Little Monkey Stamp Set - FMS581 Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome back to my blog! Today's card is for Freshly Made Sketches FMS581Sketch Challenge this week. I loved this sketch and had a real challenge working out which stamp set I wanted to use for it.

I ended up using the very cute new Little Monkey Stamp Set and the Little Monkey Builder Punch which will be available in the upcoming catalogue next month. I used Stampin' Blends to colour all the stamped images as well as one of the Basics 3D Embossing Folder, 2 3/8" Circle Punch, Vellum and Happy Forest Friends DSP (retiring).


- Use a piece of So Saffron (retiring) A4 card, cut in half lengthwise and folded and layer with a piece of Basic White card. Layer with another piece of A4 card which has been embossed with the Basics Embossing Folder.

- Use the new 2 3/8" Circle Punch to punch circles from the Happy Forest Friends DSP and Vellum and layer onto the card front in an offset way to allow a small part of the DSP to be visible.

- Stamp multiple images from the Little Monkey stamp set using Tuxedo Black onto Basic White. Colour with Stampin' Blends - Monkey (Pecan Pie and Petal Pink), Banana (Daffodil Delight), Leaves (Lemon Lolly, Lemon Lime Twist, Parakeet Party, Granny Apple Green, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow). Layer the pieces onto the card.

- Stamp the sentiment from the Little Monkey stamp set onto a piece of Basic White using Tuxedo Black, fussy cut apart and adhere to the card. Use the retired Matte Decorative Dots to complete.
