Today I'm featuring the super cute NEW Monkey Business stamp set and NEW Coordinating Monkey Business Confetti Cuts...adore this sweet monkey! When I saw this little guy I knew I wanted to make a card with a few little peek-a-boo windows for him to pop out of sharing birthday wishes! I used the small die from the Shakers 'N Frames Confetti Cuts to cut three small windows out of the main panel and popped it up over a panel that I inked with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. I coloured up two little monkeys with my Copics and then cut them out with the Monkey Business Coordinating Confetti Cuts. I don't know about you, but I tend to colour up my images before I cut them out. The open-centre style of the Monkey Business Confetti Cuts make it SO much easier to position over an already coloured image.

Here's my second card with the Monkey Business Stamp set and coordinating Monkey Business Confetti Cuts. I cut one window in the Primitive White panel with the medium frame die from the Shakers 'N Frames Confetti Cuts. I inked the panel behind the opening with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.

I positioned the sweet monkey popping out of the window and coloured up the balloons and party hat images from the stamp set.  I stamped a sentiment from the Monkey Business Stamp set on Sweet Tooth Heavyweight Card Stock layered over a Blu Raspberry flag cut with the NEW Flag Trio Confetti Cuts.  I added a few more festive banners from the Leaping Lions Stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating Leaping Lions Confetti Cuts

Thanks SO much for popping by and havin' a little look at my card for the May Countdown to Confetti with the NEW Monkey Business Stamp set, Coordinating Confetti Cuts and the NEW Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts. Please head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog for a list of Confetti Crew members sharing sneak peeks with the New May Birthday Release.

I love both of your monochromatic style cards! Sooo different than what the others created. Also love that you used the shakers and frame dies. Visiting everyone this morning has become expensive. Putting a few more of the older sets in my wish list now. Can't wait to see the rest of the reveal in the next few days.
