Way 2 Go Monkey

The reason I bought these two stamp sets, "Fox & Friends" & "Picture This", because of the Monkey and the sentiment Way 2 Go. I think this monkey is adorable and the number "2" in the sentiment is in my favorite font, "Rosewood".

First I adhered the pattern paper to my 2 1/2" square of paper. Next I stamped both the sentiment and the monkey.  I then stamped the monkey again on another piece of white paper as well as pink paper. I cut out the tummy and face from the "pink monkey", paper piecing them to the second monkey that I stamped on white. Once those pieces were dry I cut out the monkey from the white cardstock leaving the tail out. So you are actually stamping the monkey a total of 3 times. Once on the card front, once on a sheet of white paper and again on pink paper. (I guess you could just leave out the second white piece, but I thought the extra pink step gave more depth) Using a foam dot I places the cut out body of the monkey to the card front overlapped where I had stamped, so that he has some dimension. Since I left the tail out you can still see it "behind" on the card front. Last, I added some twine and put all the pieces onto the pink 3 x 3 card. Voila!

These are fun to put in kids lunch boxes. Small note cards are also a great idea in a set as a gift. Teacher appreciation is next week, why not make some little notes for your favorite Teacher or Principal.

Hope you all have a wonderful day AND weekend!
