Same materials, Different card!

I have made a challenge with my fellow demos to post each week so you are going to start seeing more stamping, I hope! :-)

My last club meeting for one of my groups was on Thursday night. I was at a loss on what to do for the final projects. Fast forward to the Tuesday before the Thursday club meeting when I sprained my knee and put myself on crutches for the next two weeks. I was so not in the mood to sit and cut out paper...mini pity party that week. I found some already cut out cardstock from a workshop in December and decided to work with it. Here is what I came up with...


Sock Monkey Love!
Thanks to my awesome stamping buddy Valerie, I also created this adorable top note bag to go along with the card. I had the idea but she really helped me bring it to life! (thank you Valerie)


Stamps: Sock Monkey, Just B
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Alpine Ribbon (Holiday Mini)

Here is what the original card looked like and then my Valentine change!


The top note Monkey Bag was very easy to create! The small bags can be bought at most craft stores and then cut down to 3 inches tall. I adhered the top note with sticky strip and used the large oval to cut the handle. Be careful when punching that you fold the outside edges out so you don't cut the bag.

Stamps: Sock Monkey, Holiday and Wishes
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Cocoa Marker, small white paper bag, large oval punch, word window punch, Alpine Ribbon.
