Welcome back to our 5th and final part of this series. Today we are making another card using the second monkey that we colored using the dark to light method.

If you missed any of this series, no worries! I've got you covered.

I do a lot of my creating this way, so I wanted to share with you the different parts so you can see how it all comes together.

All the creating started with stamping and coloring the two monkeys. Then I wanted to bring in some coordinating colors with those gorgeous layering stencils.

I had no idea what the cards would look like at this point. I was just stamping and playing with colors, that's it.

After I had that done, my first thought was to add a circle to the card. So I did that. I didn't want to do any more to detract from the stunning stenciled background or that super cute monkey. A simple sentiment was all I wanted to add and that first card was done.

After that, I had an idea to go with a second circle and some dry embossing.

That's what we are about to do in this video below.

First, let me share the supply list for this card:

Let's dive into our card for today!


Let’s use our other monkey and make another card! This card looks so cute because of the coloring and that @Sizzix and @Catherine Pooler Designs embossing folder! ❤️ @OLO™ marker!!! #inkblending #create #alcoholmarkers #neverstopmaking #cardmakingfun #papercrafting #handmadecards #diycard #diyproject #diyprojects

And just like that, we have this adorable card!

A little strip of dry embossing, some stamped and die cut bananas, simple coloring and a cheerful sentiment.

That's All Folks!

And with that, our 5 part series is complete. This was a different way for me to approach teaching card making. I would love to know your thoughts on it.

Be sure to come back for more stamping goodness! XOXO, Meg
