I have 2 cards to share with you today, first up is Sock Monkey Surprise by Kimberly. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am about this particular stamp set with coordinating dies. My good friend Kimberly Wiener from Wienerhoneymooners designed this set, Sock Monkey Surprise!
I had so much fun making this card! The girl sock monkey is dragging the boy sock monkey to the craft store...haha. He's still hanging onto his cup of coffee! This stamp set is chock full of accessories...I managed to add the bow, the mug and the balloon. Gotta love the coordinating dies for the Sock Monkey Surprise set. The clouds are from the new Silver Linings die set, more on that one in a smidge! All the patterned paper is from My Favorite Things - Fun & Frolic.
Yay for Kimberly! I couldn't be more thrilled for her!
Next up I'm featuring the Silver Linings by Julie!
This die set is amazing...so many possibilities! I used the clouds with Ranger Watercolor paper and Ken Oliver Color Burst in UltraMarine Blue. Love that sunburst...so fun! I also used the fun Stay Salty stamps + dies...the sentiment, the sailboat and do you see the clear embossed waves under the sailboat?
The complete release can be found HERE.
That's it for me...I can't wait to hop and see how everyone was inspired with this release! Now hippety hop over to my bloggie buddie, Alice Wertz!

I love the color of the clouds on the stay salty card.
Thanks for sharing :)
And I love the sailboat card's design. Lovely.
After seeing all of the stand alone dies and the new stamps in this release I realize how few of the basics I actually have. This sock monkey is adorable, I don't have a boat, umbrella, no large flowers, etc, etc... This is the release of ALL releases! LOL
the vivid blues of the clouds is beautiful.
both cards are wonderful.
thanks for sharing.
The clouds on your "ship happens" card are beautiful! Those Ken Oliver bursts sure do pack a punch and make an impact! The clear embossed waves are brilliant!
Congrats on being part of the release team!!
Love the way you did the clouds on both!
