This week at A La Card Monkey we are doing a Summer card. I have a lot of Summer stamp sets, but I had never used the chair in this set called "Shore Thing". I love this stamp set because of that Darn little cute Crab!! I stamped him in Rose Red and put Wiggle eyes on him.
I used the DSP from the 2010 Summer Mini called "Island Oasis"
I used "Crystal effects" to put the "Mirco Beads on. I was trying to get the look of sand. I also used "Crystal effects" for the 3mm wiggle eyes.
I just love that little monkey picture that I found, and the sketch is great "thank you Terry Su".
This week make a summer card any image you like.
Put your greeting anywhere on the card.
Just take the sketch and Run with it.
The "Snappy Birthday" is from the stamp set "Crab & Company". I used the Movers and Shapers Scallop die on the big shot to get the Pumpkin pie Scallop.
I used 1/4 Grosgrain ribbon here. Three different colors White, Pumpkin pie and Tempting Turquoise. The Tempting Turquoise is a color that SU brought back this year and I still had some from a few years ago when the discontinued. My friends stared calling this the "Shirley Technique".
