Little Monkey & More BackStage Swaps

As promised yesterday today’s cards have fun little animals on them and I’m going to start with the Little Monkey Bundle (161379) that has been so popular.

This bundle not only has cute little images it also has a fun little punch that goes with it making it very popular. This card uses the punch to build interest for your projects.

Done in shades of Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight and Lemon Lolly how can this bright cheerful card not make you smile. Texture has been added with the Tropical Leaf Punch (Online Exclusive 161248) and Cheery Patterns Embossing Folder (162287).

The Zany Zoo Bundle (161315) was used to create this fun birthday card. And how about a punch card using a fun shutter technique for my last card today? The finally the Hello Ladybug stamp set (157693) and Ladybug Builder Punch (157698) is too much fun!

Done in Real Red and Basic Black that is a classic combo and a natural for this card. The dots in the background were created with the Dots & Spots Dies (159164). Did you know this type of card is built by starting with a square in the center and simply adding strips of card stock to create the shutter look? Yep, it’s that simple!

So what do you think? Great swaps? I love to be inspired and share with everyone at Stampin’ Up! events. Sharing cards with each other also allows me to make new friends and meet folks from all over the world and who would love that?

Little Monkey

Oh what fun is the zoo! And these little monkeys are too cute.

Little Monkey Bundle (161379) is filled with adorable images and fun sayings AND has a coordinating Little Monkey Builder Punch (161378) who wouldn’t love that?

Check out these fun cards using the Bundle. This first card uses the punch for a bold look.

A bit of texture was added to the back ground with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (156505) and our quick and easy Stampin’ Blends were used to color the vegetation. Or how about this fun little card to say HI to someone?

It also has been colored with our Stampin’ Blends and a to of “sky” has been added behind using the Blending Brushes (153611) and some Classic Ink.

Monkeys for us have become a family favorite when visiting the zoo. On a trip to Honolulu’s Zoo last year we ran across a Gibbon monkey, this little guy was very vocal. Check out this quick little video I took. Click HERE or on my photo below.

It was so funny we were mesmerized and spent quite a while watching him sing and sing. This little guy marks his territory by a whooping, piercing “song,” and he went on for a while, you could hear him across the zoo too. LOL. We’ve never seen anything like it. (You can learn more about him HERE on the zoo’s website). By the way this zoo was a wonderful, if you have a few hours why not check it out?

So what do you think? Do you find this set as adorable as I do? Why not check it out in my Online Store?
