Heartfelt Creations - A Little Bit of Paradise

I am sharing a card I created with the "Monkeying Around Stamp and Die set from Heartfelt Creations!    Isn't it fun and relaxing?   I am in the mood.  I am spending two weeks in Hawaii at a mystery conference - Left Coast Crime.   I too feel like I am just lounging around, sleeping and eating!    I love the beach and I think this is one of my favorite places to vacation!

Cut heavy white card stock at 5 1/2 x 11 inches and score at 5 1/2 inches to create a top folding card.   Cut Green card stock at 5 1/4, x 5 1/4 inches.  Select the designer paper as shown in the picture.   The paper was from Monkeying Around Paper Collection.     Adhere the layers with double sided tape.   

X-Press It Blending card stock, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and Copic Markers were used for the images.   Stamp the hanging monkeys and banana from the Monkey Antics stamp set.  The monkey in the hammock  and fern were stamped with the Monkeying Around Cling stamp Set.   The flowers and palm tree were stamped from the Palm Tree and Monkeys Stamp Set.    

The following color combos were used to color the focal images - 
Monkey in hammock and monkeys hanging from tree -   E40, E41, E44, E47, E49, R20,  colorless blender, - banana Y00, Y11, Y15 - hammock Y11, Y11, Y15, YR23 - Palm Tree Trunk - E40, E41, E44, E44, E47, E49 - Palm tree branches and ferns- G40, G28, YG61, YG63, YG65 - Coconut - E30, E31, E33, E35, E39.  The flowers were stamped using Memento Rose Bud Ink Pad and sponged with he same ink. 

The images were die cut with the coordinating die.   The flowers and fern were shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.   Emma Lou has a wonderful video on using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pnu_xqlx060

The Palm tree was adhered using dimensional foam dots.   The monkey in the hammock was placed on the card in a way that make it look like it was hanging from the tree.    Fern was adhered from behind the hammock and on the left side.   Flowers were applied as shown in the picture.   Minnie Pearls Prills were applied to the center for embellishment.    The sweet little chain of monkeys were  adhered to the right side of the card - hanging from the tree as shown.  The banana was placed in the hand of the smallest monkey.   

There are layers, layers and layers in this card but very easy to create!   What a fun card to make!
