Monkey heartfelt Card...

hello!  I hope you all have been staying busy crafting! I have been having fun with these monkeys...this is the 3rd project with these stamps and dies. I hope you can find some inspiration in my simple cards... no flowers again!

Products used:

HCPC - 3779 Monkey Antics Cling Stamp
HCD1 - 7134 Monkey Antics Die Set
HCPC - 3780 Relaxin'Monkeys Cling Stamps
HCPC - 3777 Palm Tree & Monkeys Cling Stamps
HCP1 - 7132 Palm Tree & Monkeys Die Set'
Monkeying Around paper collection

Other products used Spellbinders Nestabilities labels twenty-two, white and black card stock, to color the palm tree, monkeys and leaves - Memento "Olive Grove, Espresso Truffel and Toffee Crunch"

Cut the card base from the white paper card stock using the Nestabilities die cut. Make sure you set the die just a little bit over the edge so it cuts a card base. Fold top part of the card in half, this will create a sort of Z card.  

Now from the paper collection cut 2 shape panels, 1 from the white card stock and 1 from the black card stock. Add one of the panels to the inside of the card, then cut another panel from the smaller die from white card stock and center this onto the card.

Cut one of the sentiments from the paper collection, I used "enjoy" and attache it to the upper corner of the panels.

Now, cut the black and white panels in half and adhere them so that they give the one panel from the collection a "layered" look.
Next, stamp, color and die cut the monkeys, bananas and palm tree and adhere them to the center of the card panels. 

You're done, quick and fun.

Using same big die cut 2 panels from the designer paper, and using the next size down, die cut one more panel.
I used the preprinted image of the dove for my card cover. Adhere the second panel onto the card base,[mine is the pretty floral print set in a black background] then the smaller sized panel on top of that.

Trying my hand at a box!

Hello, this project is made from an old cardboard box I had. It made for a cute altered project. It was easier than I thought to do. I shy away from hard projects but once you get started, it goes by fast, and the heartfelt papers make it so easy to make things cute.
look at those cute fairies!!

Other products used: Stickles “star dust”, Memento “Tuxedo Black" to cottage accents, StampinUp! “Forest Foliage” for the foliage and “Chocolate Chip", pearl beads for flower centers, Valspar Satin paint in "Wash Green".

I used a little Card board box that measures 6x4, painted the box inside and out using Valspar Satin paint. Let it dry and then cover the inside and out of the box with using a sheet from the paper collection.

Stamp, color and die cut the fence and fence gate using the Chocolate Chip ink pad. Cut enough to go around the outside of the box.

Stamp and die cut 2 of the fairies and adhere them to the front and top of the box
I used one of the pre-printed panels on the top of the box, I liked the cottage view.

Stamp, color and die cut flowers and foliage and add them to one corner on the top of the box. Add the beads to the flowers and add a sentiment. Mine is straight from the paper collection.

1. This is a Wall hanging sign die cut with the Spellbinder dies. From kraft card stock and from the paper collection die cut 2 of from the biggest size die and one from the designer paper using the second sized die. Layer these on top of each other to make the wall hanging plaque.
2. This time I die cut the Bontanic Window from white card stock and used it as the cottage, the center of the window is cut from the designer paper.
3. Also stamp, color and die cut the adorable little door, you will have 2 to choose from, and several windows, die cut a window. Add them to your cottage, so now you have a complete cute little cottage! Die cut the HOME SWEET HOME sign and cute little wheel barrel color it in with the Distress Marker in Walnut, the bird bath is also stamped and die cut but colored in with the “Not quite Navy” ink pad.
4. Stamp, color and die cut the flowers and foliage, use the flat back beads as centers for the smaller flowers and use the pink pearl beads on the bigger flowers.
5. Adhere the window to the plaque, the doors and windows and all the flowers. Die cut the fairy from the paper collection using the fair die and adhere her to the bottom right corner of the plaque. Arrange all the flowers and bird bath around the cottage. Stickle add a Treasured tag to complete the look.
