Sock Monkey - NEW Stampin Up! Set

Here is the first project that I did as a swap for Jami's Preview Swap at SCS. I call this the "famous" stamper swap because several of the girls are either ex-Dirty Dozen girls or have been published or are stampers like Taylor VanBruggen....I am so lucky to have been asked to join them but I must say that the pressure is always one when creating for these ladies!
This is the new set, Sock Monkey...I bought it because my youngest loves monkeys and I really liked the accessories that were in the set - a cupcake, heart, flag, flower, party hat, etc. I also used the new color Tangerine Tango as my base color and the color for the monkey's mouth, butt, feet and arms. Making 8 of them took me awhile and I did it in stages. By the time I was done I was saying, "Why do I always watercolor for Jami's swaps???" But seriously it was fun!
I stamped the hat in Black Staz-On and then did some masking of the hat and added the monkey. I added the flag and then did a cupcake separately. I cut the cup cake out and used dimensionals to pop it up. The rest is pretty self explanatory. I hope you enjoy it! Those new catalogs should be here anyday!
Supplies Used: Tangerine Tango cs, ink, Bashful Blue cs, ink, Old Olive cs, ink, Close to Cooca ink, So Saffron ink, Stampin Dimensionals, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Paper Piercing mat and tools, Stamp a ma jig, Sock Monkey.
