Monkeying Around Card Tutorial

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here today with a fun and easy little card. I’ve been “monkeying around” with this adorable monkey stamp and coordinating die set, featuring some of my go-to adhesives. Keep reading for the tutorial and all of the details.

Monkeying Around with the Background Colors

Let’s start by creating a simple blended background using a combination of yellow and green water reactive inks with a blending tool.

I mixed two other darker green ink colours to stamp the background image on top of the blended card panel.

Lastly, I added a border of watered down brown to the edges of the card to create a one layer dimension.

Adhere the blended background card panel to a white cardstock panel, using the Double-Sided Tape Runner Strips Permanent Refillable. (This is the HomeHobby by 3L equivalent product to our E-Z Runner Refillable Permanent Strips.) Then add the layered panel to the white cardstock card base using 3D Foam Squares White Regular Size for a pop of layer.

Die-cut the circular frame with white cardstock. Cut narrow strips of 3D Foam Creative Sheets and then slice those into small pieces. It makes it easier to add the white cardstock die cut to the card front.

Stamp the monkey image with black ink. Colour the image using watercolor markers and a water brush. Die-cut the image using the coordinating die from the set. Add to the front of the card using 3D Foam Squares White Regular Size.
