Ooohs and Ahhs and Monkey Faces!

Cards that almost always get the most oohs and ahhs are cards that have Night of Navy and Whisper White.  This is another card from my 10-10-10 class I held earlier in the week.  All of the cards featured a Sale-a-bration item and were super simple to make- they each took 10 minutes or less.  I knew I wanted to use the Make a Medallion stamp set (free sale-a-bration choice) and after looking at the design for a bit I decided that the medallion closely resembled on of the prints in the Night of Navy and Whisper White Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper.

Ha, ha, ha!  Look closely at each little part of the medallion… do you see a monkey face?  I didn’t notice it until just now!  The sweet little sentiment comes from the So in Love stamp set.  I stamped it on a 1/2″ strip of Whisper White cardstock, then snipped each end and layered it on a 5/8″ strip of night of navy cardstock and snipped those ends to match.  The banner is popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Stampin’ Studio Tips

  • Coordination: They weren’t designed to go together but the Make a Medallion stamp set and the pattern in the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper coordinate so perfectly.
  • Tip:  Sometimes trying to get multi-imaged stamps to line up is a bit of a struggle, so I  eliminated the struggle by using just one image to make my medallion.
  • Sizes: Night of Navy card base is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″.  Floral Boutique DSP is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Night of Navy is 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″.  Whisper White is 3″ x 4-1/4″.  Scraps were used for the banners
