As awesome as the New Annual Catalog is, there are still great products available in the current Mini Catalog.  I have combined the sets Catch You Later, Bragworthy, and Artfully Layered together for a fun card.


Stampin' Up!, Catch You Later, Bragworthy, Artfully Layered, Jackie Beers



These monkeys are so fun!  I immediately think of hanging out with friends.  So that is the direction I went.  And of course the sentiment takes it the same direction.  Yes, I did use three different stamp sets to create this fun card.  The monkeys and sentiment are from the Catch You Later stamp set.  It is full of similar fun images and sentiments.  And the background I created was using the Artfully Layered set with the large leaf and smaller heart leaves.

And to share the third stamp set, the Bragworthy set, here is a view of the inside.  It screams “Old Friends” to me!



I realize that this sentiment does not fit everyone.  But it definitely works with me and my friends!  This stamp set includes six unique and fun sentiments for different occasions.


To carry the outdoors theme I wanted a green color.  But instead ended up with a blue / green by using Bermuda Bay.  This is an awesome color that I use often.  And to pair with the monkeys’ colors, I added the layer of Crumb Cake.  For the stamped backgrounds I did tone on tone for both Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake.  The Crumb Cake images are stamped repeatedly before re-inking.


To give some added emphasis for the sentiment, I used the Double Oval Punch for a bit of an extra layer.  And as a more masculine “bling”, I used the New Brushed Metallic Adhesive Dots.  By adding one to each of the focal layers it brings them together.  And I know I generally do at least three of my blings.  This card just did not like adding a third one.
