Today is Day One of our May Release Countdown! The May release includes 5 new stamp sets, six new Confetti Cuts dies/die sets, and a brand-new Quick Card Panel collection. Today, the spotlight is on two stamp sets: Monkey Business and Party Hats, each with coordinating Confetti Cuts die sets.

Happy Birthday, Reverse Confetti!



My card features the adorable monkey from Monkey Business. These illustrations are so cute and whimsical! I stamped and die-cut the monkey and some balloons, then colored with Copics. The sentiment is heat embossed in white on vellum. Also making an appearance is the new Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts die-set. The orange fishtail flag was done with one of the three dies included in that set.
