Baby Monkey Punch Art

 I'm so sorry that I haven't been taking photos of the cards I've been making recently!  I'll try to be better about it.  This is one that I quick snapped before putting in the envelope.  I was late for the shower, so didn't have time to set up a nice photo shoot.  Sorry about the quality of the photo.  As you can see, this was all made with SU punches.  I've posted a photo of the wall decor that the new mom picked out at Babies R Us.  That little monkey at the top of the door is what I was trying to mostly recapture.  To start with, I needed an idea of how to make a monkey with punches!  Yes, I did go to pinterest and found a great sample here.  I've pinned it to my punch art board so that you can easily find it if you'd like to go back to it.
As you can tell, it's close, but not perfect.  But do we really expect perfection?  Not really. As I tell my customers, if it's perfect, it doesn't look handmade for the receiver.  Ok, I'll try to list here the punches that I've used.
Circles:  large from owl punch, Itty Bitty Shapes, 3/4", 1", 1 3/4", 1 3/8"(belly)
Large Oval Punch
Word Window Punch
Flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes
The DP is retired.  The small Basic Pearls were colored with a yellow sharpie to match the yellow circle of the flowers on the photo.
That's the Ticket, which coordinates with the Ticket Punch was used for the awesome greeting.  Do you know what I like about this greeting?  The baby doesn't need to be born yet!  ;-)

So that's a look at what I've created this week.  I'm eagerly waiting to attack my UPS driver when he drops of my box of goodies from the NEW CATALOG!!!!!  Can't wait!  Until then, here's a link to the new catalog.  Just click on the "shop now" button.  I just KNOW you're going to love it!

Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station!
