Now.... here are my creations- eek! First up, is my card using Sock Monkey Surprise & matching Sock Monkey Surprise dies designed by the fabulous Kimberly Wiener!
Isn't this set so cute!!!! So playful and perfectly fun. It is ideal for paper piecing. I used some Simple Stories paper with hearts for the belly and kite. It reminds me of my daughter's sock monkey. The Avery Elle Scalloped Frame dies are perfect around the outside. Some Basic Grey enamel dots and timeless twine make the perfect finishing touches.
Next up, you'll see my card featuring the new Sunshine Word die by amazing Julie Ebersole. It also includes the Stay Golden set and Stay Golden dies.
With black paper as the base of this creation, I needed something bright to pop off the page. So I chose to use the Stay Golden stamps and dies. I used the rock & roll technique to pick up some yellow orange and a little pink for my pineapple. I love the way the colors turned out, the perfect platform for the Sunshine Word dies. I doubled layered these for extra impact. Some washi, twine and more enamel dots finished it off.
OK, please head over to Heather Campbell's blog next for more inspiration! Thank you for visiting me today!
