Just Monkeying Around...

...with my new Stampendous Changito Stamp.

There are several series of stamps that I love from Stampendous...like Fluffles, Max the Mouse and Bee Happy. When they released their new Spring 2008 stamps and I saw the Changito B-day stamp I just "HAD" to have it! LOL You all know what I mean...those gotta have moments :)



Recipe:
Stamps - Stampendous Changito B-day and Palm Fronds; SU All Year Cheer II (retired); Stamping Bella (part of a sentiment stamp that I used "to you" from)
Cardstock - SU Naturals Ivory; Glorious Green; Only Orange; Basic Black; Kraft
Inks - Ranger Adirondack Pitch Black Ink; SU Glorious Green Classic Ink and Marker, Prismacolor Markers; Micron for hand doodling
Misc - Colored Staples from CTMH; SU Orange Ribbon; Twine; Glue Pen; Glitter; Brown and White Fun Flock; Eyelets; Dimensionals; Sticky Strip
Punches - SU Oval Punches
For the monkeys on the front I stamped once on Kraft CS and then once on Ivory CS. Cut out the little mouth part and pieced it on top of main image. Stamped again on Only Orange and pieced the Happy B-day section. Stamped the monkey again on Ivory and cut out for the inside. Both layers are attached with dimensionals.
