So, when the Sock Monkey stamp set was released by Stampin' Up, I knew eventually it would end up in my craft room. And, that time has arrived (thanks to Sherrill Graff). I chose the Sock Monkey and all of his accessories in my contest order from Sherrill. I have been "dying" to use him. So, for card class this month, I created this:
The complete list of supplies:
Stamp Set: Sock Monkey, Heard From The Heart
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Real Red, Very Vanilla
Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Early Espresso
Accessories: Real Red 1/8-inch Taffeta Ribbon, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Markers - Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, 3/16-inch Corner Rounder Punch
I stamped the cupcake and his party hat on scraps of Very Vanilla cardstock and then colored them before cutting them out. I attached the hat and his bow with a glue dot and the cupcake with a dimensional.
I absolutely love this little monkey. He is perfect for a child's birthday or for anyone who grew up playing with a sock monkey doll. And he is just plain fun!! I can't wait to put him in his little wagon and give him a bunch of bananas,.......LOL! What a fun way to be a kid again :) He will look so cute dressed up for Christmas - be sure to watch for him soon.
Thanks for stopping by today. If you grew up with a sock monkey doll, I hope this card brought back some cherished childhood memories for you, too. 'Til next time.....................
