Stretch Your Stamps2 Bonus Day

Hello everybody! How's your week coming along? It's moving fast!

We had a Bonus Day for Stretch Your Stamps 2 Online Card Class. The focus was on coloring in shapes that are outlined. The stamp set we used is called Up Up and Away and it's by Mama Elephant. I'm sure several of you have seen it because the set is quite popular. I love the little animals but what I don't love is cutting them out!

The main card is Gina K Designs Pure Luxury white, and the patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye 6 x 6 paper pack called Fine and Dandy. I thought the clouds were appropriate for the monkey to be falling through the sky. The next layer is vellum, and I heat embossed the balloon outline and the sentiment. I colored and cut out the balloons and the monkey and put them on top. Finally, I added some gems to cover up some places where I had to add some glue. (The reason the monkey is green is I had colored all three of the animals from the set to go together but then didn't have room on the card for the rest of them.)

Hope you like the Bonus Day card! I had fun making it, except for the cutting-out part. Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate your visits and comments very much, and I hope to see you again soon ~


  1. Great card! I love the little bear flying in the clouds.

  2. I love the soft cottony sky that cute little monkey is floating up in. It was worth all of the fussy cutting.

  3. That vellum is a really nice addition to this card. And I love the green monkey - so cute. Cutting is a pain, but i do it a lot. Sometimes it's the only way to get the right effect. Very sweet card.

  4. Cute, cute, cute!!! Your fussy cutting was well worth it.

  5. Your card is so cute - I love these critters! Yes I agree with you - this is the best kind of homework ever LOL xx

  6. Cute! Sweet colors, awesome look with Vellum. Nice job!
