10% off Sale

I thought our blog followers should be first to know that we are having a little 10% off sale at Silly Monkey Crafts to celebrate my birthday tomorrow.
The 10% applies to everything and will end at midnight on Thursday 15th October.
We are still uploading High Hopes so it is well worth keeping your eyes on the 'What's new' section.
The Moonlight Whispers from Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps did very well and our restock shipment should be with us very soon after a relaxing long stay in customs!

Greeting Farm 'Savannah'

Here's another cutie from 'The Greeting Farm' they are always such fun to colour in and for decoupaging (just did the feather in her hair but could have done more layers). This is 'Savannah' from the 'wild sprouts' range.

Again, intended to be simple but then I start playing around with the layout and bits just seem to get added on until nothing else will fit LOL. Left greeting off so it can be used whenever (though probably for someone girly)

  • Stamps: 'Savannah' . flourish corners from an autumn leaves stamp set
  • Colouring: Copics, Sakura clar stardust pen over feather, eyelids and bits of her clothes for sparkle
  • Paper: MME 'wild asparagus'
  • Tools: Labels nesties (four & eight), various punches for borders, leaves and flourishes. tracing wheel for the faux stitching holes
  • Others: paper roses

    Thanks for looking. Have a good day.

    New stamp range~ Kraftin' Kimmie

    Yeah, I can spill the beans today and show you the spanking new, hot off the press, range of stamps that Silly Monkey is now stocking . . . . 'Kraftin Kimmie Stamps'. They have JUST been released today over in Canada but the best news is that Bryony already has them in stock now, so what are you waiting for?!There are 2 great ranges (one is 'Chrissie's Cuties' by the same artist behind lots of the High Hopes') but my personal favourite is the 'Moonlight Whispers' range which feature really cute girls, including this one. They are just sooo different and funky/fun which I love. They each come with a little matching accessory stamp too.

    This one I think is called 'Posey' and comes with the little matching rose which I have stamped out twice and used as a little accent either side of her. Just had to use this 'Pique Nique' paper Cherry sorbet aux cerises as it just matched her dress perfectly! kept the rest simple.

    You must go check out the other girlies in the range, I love them all! Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fantabulous day too!
