It's a Boy

Hi there! Here I am posting again; this time I have tried my hand at a different challenge set by Everything But the Kitchen Sink.  This is for Challenge 21 which is being hosted by the gorgeous Kelly Marie Alvarez of Lawn Fawn. If you haven't checked out her blog or stamps and you love cute, then you must take a look - the stamps are seriously adorable and she is so generous! I was lucky enough to win a stamp set from Lawn Fawn last week through Scrap Time which was fantastic. Scrap Time is also well worth taking a look at - Christine shows new products and techniques in videos that are downloadable (is that a real word?) through i-Tunes.

Back to the challenge! The inspiration given by Kelly Marie:

Her front loading washing machine! The sketch:

And my card:

And with matching envelope:

I used DCWV 8"x8" printed cardstock from the Animal Crackers stack to cover the base of the card and to line it up without messing it up I used the simple technique Kelly Marie shows at the beginning of this video:

I stamped the free falling monkey from Hero Arts Clear Design stamp set Playful Animals onto the brown cardstock and again onto cream cardstock and paper pieced the ears and face. The yippee! is from the same set. I then used my Cuttlebug and cut him out using a Spellbinders Nestabilities circle die. The leaves were punched out with  Stampin' Up! Extra Large Two Step Bird Punch and I glued them down and covered them with Dimensional Magic to add some interest and shine.  After pop dotting the circle to the card base I used Lawn Fawn's Bannerific and Sophie's Sentiments on yellow cardstock and pop dotted the banner to complete the card.

That's all from me tonight, time to get some sleep. Thanks for visiting!

May your day be filled with inspiration,
