Welcome back to our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenges. Look at this fun monkey cake…perfect for a birthday party or baby shower, don’t you think?
The little monkeys in this stamp set are SO cute! This one I have sitting on a branch eating a banana!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Shaded Spruce cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Azure Afternoon cardstock is embossed with the Metal Plate Embossing Folder.
- I used one of my leftover Basic White inside pieces of the Darling Details border frames and stamped the tree branch several times with Memento Black Ink, then colored with Shaded Spruce and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.
- The Little Monkey greeting was also stamped with Memento Black Ink.
- The monkey and banana were stamped with Memento Black Ink on Basic White cardstock and colored with Pecan Pie and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends, the cheeks with Flirty Flamingo Blends. The banana was colored with Daffodil Delight and Lemon Lolly Stampin’ Blends. They were hand-cut and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Too cute! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
