Hi Crafty Friends,
Two I have two cards to share with you. As I was using the Mama Elephant Circular Grid die to create one card, which meant that I would have all those circles left over from die cutting this die I decided to use the circles to make another card.
For the background of my card, I use Taylored Expressions Mosaic Leaves Stencil and applied Catherine Pooler Inks in Sage, Lime Rickey, Grass Skirt and Eucalyptus through the stencil onto white cardstock for an ombre effect. I also covered another piece of cardstock using the same colors of inks.
I used the Mama Elephant Circular Grid die to die cut the stencil panel and adhered this over the second panel using foam tape.
To decorate my card I stamped monkeys from Motion Crafts Monkey Flip Book Kit and adhered them randomly onto the card using foam tape.
I stamped the "Favorite Person To Hang out With" sentiment onto black cardstock and white embossed and then die cut this using Honey Bee Stamps Banner Builder die set. I adhered this to the second row of circles.
I added two other sentiments and some bananas to the other remaining circles.
I created another stencil panel using the Mosaic Leaves Stencil and cut it down and adhered it to the left side of the card.
I added a sentiment from Gerda Steiner Designs Party Animals stamp set and die cut that using one of the banner dies from Honey Bee Stamps Banner Builder die set.
To finish off the card, I added some more of the monkeys from the stamp set.
For my second card I used the circle pieces leftover from making the first card and adhered them to a white panel and then onto a folded green card.
I added monkeys to some of the circles and then stamps the sentiment to the two outer circles on the bottom.
I added another mosaic leaves stencil panel to the left side of the card and then added two sentiments and a monkey to the white side of the panel.
