For a little monkey...

Hello! I hope your week is going well. I am having fun playing with gel-a-tins stamps.

My latest creation features the little monkey from the Safari Friends stamp set. He is so cute with his sideways smile and eyes looking upward. I thought he would be perfect to hold this sentiment floating among the newspaper clouds like balloons.

First, I chose a yellow and orange cardstock for the monkey. I stamped the image once on each color. Then, I cut out the full body, his muzzle, and his belly. I adhered them together on the front of the card. He is standing on a rolling hill made from green cardstock, just free hand cut with a craft knife.


Next, I cut out the number "4" and the letter "u" using a Cuttlebug Die Cutting Machine and white cardstock. I adhered them to the card, using foam dots for some dimension underneath the "4." Some string and clouds cut from newspaper complete the look.

I hope you enjoyed this project. It definitely brought a smile to my face.
