Party Monkey & Everyday

Hello, my friends!! Here are two cards that I made using new digital releases at Two Peas to share with you.

I used the adorable papers and elements from Holly Brooke Jones' Party Monkey Mini Kit for this card. This kit is perfect for boy cards especially for birthdays. I decided to make an everyday card. I stamped the monkeys on the polka dot paper and pop dotted an extra set over them to get some dimension. The sentiment is from this set by Hero Arts.

For my second card, I used Scrap Originals' Everyday kit. The colors, patterns and elements in this kit are very pretty and elegant. I simply stamped the beautiful hummingbird image over the yellow solid paper (both from the kit) before printed it out. I then machine stitched the piece over a printed background from the kit, added the sentiment label and crochet thread and it done! Easy peasy! The sentiment is from PTI. You can also get this kit separately, see the papers here and the elements here.

That's all I have for today. Please check out all the new digital releases at Two Peas here!

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
