July New Product Tour-Go Bananas!!!

That's right everyone, we have made it through teasers, and now, all the new sets are available in the My Favorite Things Store!!!! Before you go shop, be sure to hop around to all the designers and leave them some love! You never know who has the candy!!

Tonight, my job is to show you the new Claire Keay Monkey Business set!! 

For my card tonight, I paired the super cute new Monkey Business set with some Hot Fudge(MFT), Kiwi Kiss(PTI), and Banana Split(Bazzill) cardstock, and the MME Stella and Rose Gertie paper pad. I used the new Vine Border Die-namics on both the inside and outside of the card. My sentiment was cut out with the new Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and then attached with a Buttons Galore Sock Hop buttons, and some Natural Jute Twine. To finish it, I used brads from Michael's, and a Creative Express Spiral Clip with some Sweet Tooth Grosgrain and more twine.

For the inside, I used the same supplies as I did for the outside.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

The Cherry on Top is earned when you spend $150 before shipping and tax, earning you $15 off your order. Once that amount is hit, the coupon code will pop up on your screen, which you can write down and then apply to your order in your shopping cart. If you remove things from your cart, making it fall below $150, the coupon code will be removed automatically.

Also, remember that SOMEONE out there is giving out blog candy, and the BEST way to win, is to comment on ALL the designers blogs!! Good luck!!

Now, off to Kim's Blog for a full list of designer's participating!! Happy Stamping!!

For my card tonight, I used the super cute, Pure Innocence Birthday Girl. She was stamped on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored with my Copics. I paper pieced her skirt with some MME A Happy Heart paper, as well. My image was layered with my card stock colors: Rose Red(SU), Gold Coin(Bazzill), and Black Licorice(MFT). My background was created using both the Jumbo Squiggle Border Die-namics, and the Rounded Banner Stax Die-namics. I added brads to the ends of the Jumbo Squiggle Border Die-namics. For my ribbon, I used the Black Licorice Grosgrain, and I also used a spiral clip. The Sentiment Strips Die-namics was used for my sentiment, and the new Plentiful Petals Die-namics was used to make my flower. I cut out four of the smallest flower, and one of the small centers to make it, and used a black button from Buttons Galore. 

For the inside, I stamped the balloon repeatedly on different pieces of paper from the MME A Happy Heart pad. I cut them out, and made my own little balloon bundle. My sentiment actually came from the Surfer Dude set that we are releasing tomorrow night as well!

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

Well, that is it for me for now!! Head to Kim's Blog for a full list of Designers playing along today, and have a great day!!
