Denami Designs Theme Challenge #2

Who wouldn't love the theme of summer splash? When I first started thinking about this challenge, I was a little disheartened about the fact that my sand castle is my only 'summery' Denami Designs stamp. Staring at my stamps for days didn't make any new 'summery' ones appear, but it did inspire me to use the masking technique to make it seem as though this little monkey is putting the finishing touches on the sand castle he built. Thanks to my daughter for letting me raid her seashell collection from Fort Myers, Marco Island, and Sanibel Island! And thanks to Mom and Dad for bringing us there!
Stamps: Denami Designs Sand Castle and Single Monkey and a palm tree from Michael's $1 bin
Paper: SU Real Red, Whisper White, and Green Galore
Ink: SU Basic Black, Stampin' Write Markers, and SU Watercolor Pencils
Other: seashells, twine, random palm tree charm, and Sugar Coating Glitter


  1. This is waaaaayyyyy toooooo cute! I knew you were creative, but as you promised, you did blow me out of the box on this one! Now, remember that little joke we have about how am I going to outdo myself each year with the Brookfield Zoo Pass presentation? I want to see how you are going to outdo this in the next Denami Challlenge!

  2. Oh my goodness, I love the sand monkey!! It totally looks like he built the sand castle! Very clever and super cute! So glad you could join us at the DeNami Design challenge!

  3. This card is so awesome, Jen! I love how you used both the sand castle and monkey together! So very creative!

    We're so glad that you could join us in this DeNami challenge- we always love having you play along!

  4. Very Creative card Jen! I would have never thought to put those stamps together, but you made it look awesome!

  5. This is adorable! Cute little monkey and shells. I love the Palm trees in the background! So cute! Thanks for playing in the DeNami Challenge with us!
