Monkey Business

How about a little Monkey Business? Reverse Confetti style? This little chimp is just too cute not to create lots of playful cards with! And perfect for practicing my Copic skills...which require a lot more practice! Ha! 

After I colored monkey, I brought him over to my scrap bin and matched him up with this striped patterned paper. I love the combo. Then I pulled some card stock from the scrap bin as well for the banners. A little dash of sequins to give the card a more celebratory feel and we have one adorable party animal card!

Coffee - Fun Stampers Journey Style

How I love coffee let me count the ways! And I have a lot of coffee lovin' peeps who can't resist it either so one of my favorite gift-giving ideas is a Ball jar of some really cool beans! 

To create this gift tag and card set I used one of my favorite Fun Stampers Journey stamps sets...Enjoy Coffee. There are some pretty awesome coffee icons and sentiments included in this set!  

This "Keep Calm and Drink Coffee" and the to-go coffee cup stamps are simply irresistible! 

Did you know that one of the Journey Circles dies fits a wide mouth ball jar lid perfectly? Yes indeed! After adding my Cool Pool card stock top I layered it with a couple hearts, a wooden clothespin and twine. 

Another Fun Stampers Journey stamp that I like to use with the coffee set is the Ink Splat. If you use the Oatmeal Ink Pad with the Oatmeal Cardstock you get a pretty realistic looking coffee splatter. 

After this post, I'm going to need a cup of Joe! I can smell the beans as I type!

Recently I bought a few more Copic markers for my collection and sat down to practice a little using the adorable Puppy Love stamps from Reverse Confetti. Woof! These pups are just so darling and fun to color! 

I've always stamped my images in black before coloring and this time I thought I'd try a lighter ink and Copics. I love the soft look. 

 I think I'll save this card for my hubs...it's perfect for the two of us! 

Have a great weekend!

Scraptastic Club Thursday Challenge

Hello! Today on the Scraptastic Club blog Madeline Fox and I have a fun and crafty challenge for you! There's a hint in this peek at my project! You might guess we're asking you to use numbers, and that would be an excellent guess, but that's not it. 

I hope you can play along with us and I hope you enjoy the projects Madeline and I created just for you! 

If you missed my last Scraptastic Club post, I created a trio of cards from the May 2015 Janglin' kit that shows how you can create beautiful watercolor cards without the watercolors. 

Look at all these beautiful springtime colors! Ooh la la! These were so fun and easy to make!
