One of the first bundles I purchased during the Demonstrator pre-order period was the LIttle Monkey Bundle. The adorable characters in this set just made me smile and I knew I would have fun playing with them. The bundle includes the LIttle Monkey stamp set with three different monkeys and the Monkey Builder punch.
Let’s get ready to stamp!
Today I selected this bundle to highlight on my YouTube Live demonstration. I had so much fun playing with this set. As I usually do, I did one simple stamping card and one a little more stepped up. Let’s take a look at both.
This first card is pretty simple – just Stamps, Ink, and Paper (S.I.P.) with just a little coloring thrown in to make it more interesting. The sentiment is stamped and punched with the Handmade Tag punchand backed with a piece of Brights Designer Series Paper that was also punched with the Handmade Tag punch and cut in half.
The next card also has S.I.P. but I’ve added more punches, a 3D embossing folder, and lots of coloring and layers. Check it out.
