Stampin' Up! Happy Labels ~ Casually Crafting Blog Hop

 Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm taking part in a blog hop with the Casually Crafting Design Team!  We are an international group of Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who want to share our take on casual crafting.  We will share what we love with you monthly.  Be sure to check out the rests of the design team's projects using the links at the bottom of this post.

For our challenge this month we were to make a card using this awesome sketch.  My first thought when I saw the sketch was flowers, but then I thought that somebody might do that.  My next thought was MONKEYS!  How fortunate that my Little Monkey stamp set (by Stampin' Up!) includes three monkeys.

While there is a punch to cut out one of the monkeys and the banana, I decided to fussy cut everything.  It's funny, I used to avoid fussy cutting at all costs, but now I find myself fussy cutting several times a week.  Turns out it's strangely addicting!

I didn't plan on adding the bananas and the dots, but I got a smidge of ink on my Basic White Cardstock.  To cover it up I wanted to add yellow dots, but felt like I needed yellow somewhere else on the, Bananas!  (The yellow dots are actually vanilla Classic Matte Dots colored yellow with a Stampin' Blend)
