That’s what I wanted this card to say at first….but then decided to use a different sentiment, so I could be able to actually send the card away. This little monkey does look a bit lecherous though with his tongue hanging out…what do you think? To me he looks like he wants to monkey around!


I just love these monkey images. I stamped  my little guy with Black Palette ink on shimmery white cardstock. I colored him with aqua painter and classic ink pads: Close to Cocoa, Ruby Red, Real Rust and Brocade blue.

The patterned Paper is from My Mind’s Eye. I ran it through the cuttlebug and used the Tiny Bubble dry embossing folder. I have been waiting forever for this to come back in stock. Kim McNutt made me NEED that folder in a bad way.

 The sentiment is stamped with Everyday Flexible Phrases.

  1. These monkey image are super cute!! I love both of them. Love your layout too – hopefully I’ll get to stamp soon and I can try it! TFS

  2. lecherous or in love – maybe both.

    I just got some impression plates for my Ellison big Kick. As soon as I uncover enough table surface, I’m gonna try them out. I also bout one cuttle bug plate to see if I could get it to work with my machine.

  3. awwwww…you didn’t want to save him for DH? what a cute little guy…ok, the monkeys are growing on me!

  6. Too cute! He looks like such a party animal. Love the papers you chose and the little glow around him.

  7. Oh my gosh! This monkey reminds me of Keith Urban’s guitar monkey he used to use on all of his stuff (I love KU, by the way).

    This card is so cute! Love the papers and the way you’ve colored the monkey!

  8. Very cute! I love the pp too 🙂

  9. Since you’ve shared that you use either choc. chip or black as a base for most of your cards, how do you write on them inside? Do you line the inside with white cs or use a signo gel pen or what? Love your work and hope to pass along the shadowing technique around changito to my stampin’ crew at my upcoming stamping day.

  10. Oh, this is funny and so, so cute! He is getting DOWN with that gi-tar! Love it all!

  11. Beate, Do you know what an enabler you are?! I just flew over to eP to get this little guy (also picked up the bee trio while I was there) when I saw your card. He will make a perfect anniversary card for DH. I already have the tiny bubbles embossing folder so I should be all set. But is an addict like myself ever “all set”, hmmmm……
