Monkeying Around-Heartfelt Creations

Hello Friends and welcome to my blog.  Today is new release day for Heartfelt Creations and what a great collection this is.  It is called Monkeying Around and has some cute little monkeys, palm trees, and coconuts.

My first project with this collection is a 6x6 card with a shadow box that i created to fit the front of the card.  Here is the front of the card :

here is a view from the side, peeking into the shadow box..

the flower detail: i stamped the smaller plumeria flower out, and cut it apart, using only the flower part of the stamp image, attaching pollens, i love how it looks. 

Be sure to check out the rest of the samples put together by the team this week, 
Happy Scrapping

Instructions:  Begin with 6x6 card panel from collection.  From another 12x12 paper, cut a 7x7 square, score each end at 6 .75 and.25; then at 6.5 and ,5;.  Fold and score to create a mini shadow box for your card front.  Attach a card panel inside, i am using the one with the resting monkey on  the hammock. Cut down to fit shadow box (should be 5x5) Cut and stamp out 4 palm trees; colour with peeled paint and antique linen on the palms and trunk with vintage photo. Color coconuts with peeled pain ink.  Shadow with vintage photo ink. Attach one to outside of box as shown; attach second to inside to mimic the trees; from other two, cut off the palms and tuck them in to hide the resting monkey a bit so they look like saw palmetto branches. Look for the Monkey on the Adirondack chair and fussy cut out using scissors, craft knife and healing mat. Using ink, highlight edges with coordinating inks and shadow his hat.  Using foam adhesive pop him on the front.  Stamp sentiment and adhere to front of shadow box as shown.  From the Palm tree set, cut out four sets of the smaller plumeria flower set, colour with rose coral ink and cut apart, we are just using the flower part.  Attach pollen to center and adhere as shown.  Cut out two sets of the palm branches and color.  Adhere to outside corner as shown. Detail palm trees, palmetto branches and fern with glitter.
