Party Monkey

This is my Party Monkey! I love this set, but then I say that about EVERY set I buy so you'll hear that a lot!

I've been hunting down cards I made with RH Red, Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze! I'm so excited about these colors coming back! They are some of my favorites!

This card uses both Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette, as well as Kraft (now Crumb Cake) and Very Vanilla card stock.The stamp set is Sock Monkey (#111552). I stamped the image twice, once on Kraft and once on VV. I paper-pieced the VV card stock onto the Kraft monkey and colored the mouth with a Stampin' Write marker. The balloons were stamped on colored card stock, cut out and raised with Stampin' Dimensionals. I drew the strings free hand.

The pink dotted red DSP is retired but you could use any color (OR wait until July 1 when they'll come out with other RH Red and Pink Pir DSP! ;-) I mounted the DSP onto Crumb Cake (I need to practice the new name) card stock, leaving enough room to use my piercing tool to create the stitch marks. I cut 2 scallops out with the Scallop Edge punch (#112091) and mounted them under the Crumb Cake.

I plopped my Monkey on top of everything and the rest ... is history.

Hope your day is splendiferous!
Much love and joy,



  1. I am in the scared-of-sock-monkey camp! LOL!! But I love this festive dsp with him...very cute! (I, too, am excited about this colors returning!!)

  2. This is awfully cute! I love the paper piecing technique - makes such a difference to outline images without having to colour them! PP and RHR are still current here in Aus and I am stoked that they are staying :)

  3. Kim you crack me up! LOL! Scared of Sock Monke!

    Glad that the colors will work for you Nicki! It's hard to believe that you're inside with the winter chill. I can never wrap my head around the reversed seasons.
