I have been a Stampin' Up Demonstrator for almost two years now, and when I signed up it was just for the starter kit and discount on products........ I never imagined it would snowball into being a business like it has. I am a new Mummy to my little boy, Isaac, who is almost four months old now. I am spending my maternity leave enjoying watch him grow up, becoming his own little person, and also trying to build my business up. Stampin' Up! have amazing products and I would love to share my crafting passion with as many people as possible. I am always putting through orders, so if you need anything, or just want some information or advise, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Monkey Madness!!!!

Hi everyone - I wanted to share with you a card I have made for the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge this week.

I went a bit monkey mad and ended up stamping some Fox and Friends monkeys in Rose Red and cutting them out.  A little fiddly, but fairly quick to do.  It's just the tail that gets in the way a bit, but thankfully I didn't accidentally chop any off!  
I used Pear Pizazz DSP (level 1 hostess reward) for a leafy backdrop, and also stamped onto some Crumb Cake card with the leaves from the Confetti stamp set, in Versamark.  The branches are cut in Pear Pizazz from the 2-Step Bird Punch.

They are definitely some playful little monkeys, hanging out in the trees!

The Details: 
Card / Paper - Rose Red / Crumb Cake / Whisper White / Pear Pizzazz DSP (L1 Hostess)
Stamps / Ink - Fox and Friends / Afterthoughts (L1 Hostess) / Plane and Simple / Confetti / Versamark / Rose Red
Embellishments -  1/2" Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon
Tools - 2-Step Bird Punch / 1 1/2" Scallop Square Punch / Sticky Strip / Stamp-a-ma-jig / Snail / Dimensionals
