My Sweet Petunia & Sugar Pea Designs Collaboration Bloghop



My Sweet Petunia is teaming up again, this time with Wendy and her team at SugarPea Designs. You should have come here via Vera's blog and she is so talented! 


They have some super cute sets at SugarPea designs, for my card I chose Chunky Monkey because the monkeys are the cutest.  I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel. I sat the image in Memento ink and the masked it so I could do the background.  I used the new distress oxide inks for my background and added some water droplets to give it texture. Next I removed the masks and colored the image with Copic markers. 





Using the MISTI I was able to stamp the greeting on the card I had almost completed.  Next I cut it out using the Sunshine layers die by WPlus9. To make sure it was straight i used the Creative Corners.

There are giveaways associated with this hop, so be sure to leave a comment on all the participants in order for a chance to win.
 I have a full list below in case you get lost along the way.

  2. Oooo, hadn't thought of using the tools to align as you did! Thanks for the tip. Your card is so cute. I, too, love this set. I could "watch" these monkeys all day long at a zoo but am willing to settle using them on cute cards. I'm hoping to buy the set soon.
