Love Monkey Cards with Rachel & Lexa

Hello, crafty friends! Rachel here today and I am so excited to be joining the wonderful talent on the Sunny Studio Stamps Creative Team! I have a fun shadow box card to share with you featuring the new and adorable Love Monkey Stamp Set.

Aren't these monkeys just the cutest? They're perfect for Valentine's Day or pretty much any other occasion during the year depending on how you decide to color them. To start, I stamped my images with Copic friendly black ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb card stock. I then colored the images with Copic Sketch markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

(Copic Makers used: Monkey Bodies: E30, E31, E23, E27, E49; Monkey Faces: E0000, E000, E21, E11, E04; Branches: E30, E31, E23, E27, E29; Copic Colored Leaves: G20, YG01, YG13, YG17, G28; Pink Hearts: RV0000, RV00, RV52, RV55; Red Heart: R05, R27, R46, R59, RV99)

To create my shadow box, I simply cut two pieces of white card stock to 4.25" x 7" and scored each piece at 1.5" and 5.5". I folded my paper along the score lines and used these two pieces as the outer portion of my box. I then die cut a circular window in one of the pieces for the front of my card. For the inner shelves, I trimmed two pieces of white card stock to 4.25" x 4.75" and scored them each at 3/8" and 4 3/8". Once done with this part, I die cut a circle window into each piece to line up with the one that I made for the front of the card. This helps to create depth and an easy way to attach your images from all angles inside of your card.

To create the large leafy greenery throughout the card, I used the gorgeous Botanical Backdrop Die and die cut it a few times on some green card stock. I then trimmed off a few of the green leaves in small sections and blended them with some Distress inks (Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive, and Peeled Paint). I then glued these to the back of each window section to add some more depth and look as if the monkeys were hanging out in the trees.  I also added a piece of patterned pink paper from the new Flirty Flowers 6x6 Paper Pad to the very back section of my card.

Lastly, I adhered a couple of the monkeys, the vines, and the tree branch to the inside of my card with some liquid adhesive. I attached the last monkey to the outside of my card with some 3D foam adhesive squares. I then heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail white embossing powder onto some black card stock.

Thank you so much for dropping by! I hope you enjoyed my card today! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and see you next week!

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with a card featuring the brand new stamp set and the coordinating dies that called Love Monkey. And yes, there are so much to love about this new stamps! Those adorable little cheeky faces that will be what you need for everyday cards and Valentine's. Other than that, I also use the super fun Staggered Circle dies on this card. I'm swooning over this new release.

First, I cut the circles using the Staggered Circle dies and blended some colorful Distress Inks on each circles. Then I stamped the polka dots background using Background Basic Stamps. I stamped all the images using Versafine black ink on the watercolor paper. After that, I use my Distress Markers to color each images and run them through die cutting machine. I think Sunny Studio has one of the best coordinating dies, they're perfectly line up on each images, sharp and those thin white line is just so satisfying.

The most fun part is always arranging every images to the scene. I adhere them using foam tapes to create some dimensions. I choose happy colors for this birthday card. I hope it will bright up one's day!
