Flying Monkeys

Hey everyone!   I created a fun Halloween card using the Monkey Barrel die from the exclusive line from Cheapo Dies.  I was going through my stamps and thought this would be the perfect sentiment to go along with this die. :-)

I die cut the monkey from this seven piece set multiple times and from various pieces of cardstock.  The rings of the barrel were die cut from some adhesive backed glitter paper I had.

The stamp set I used is Witching Hour by Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Using the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, I stamped the sentiment and the witch using VersaMark and then added Ebony Spark embossing powder to the witch and Clear embossing powder to the sentiment.  The platform allowed me to position the witch perfectly between the barrel and the monkeys (all of which I had already adhered to my card.  Normally I stamp first and then add my die cuts, but because I wanted the spacing just so, I did it opposite of what I normally do 😊).

Be sure to visit the Cheapo Dies Blog for daily inspiration, all using the exclusive line.
