Whiff of Joy Anniversary Blog Hop

Welcome to the Anniversary Blog Hop sponsored by Whiff of Joy Stamps! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Katharina’s Blog.
I have made a whole birthday gift set with this cheeky little monkey stamp, isn't he cute! There is a card, ruk sak gift bag, bookmark, clipboard and badge.

Here is the card, I wanted to create a jungle theme. The leaves have been punched with a woodware punch. All the papers are K&Co and have been distressed with peeled paint distress ink.

I added a swinging vine made from some twine and the dragonflys are charms that I've snipped the rings off.

I have carried my sketch through to the inside and written the sentiment with my calligraphy pen.


A close up of the bookmark.....

and clipboard.....

and the ruk sak gift bag with badge. The ruk sak has been made to the tutorial I found here but I have made straps from paper and have added some stitching to the straps and pockets to make it look more realistic. I have stamped the monkey stamp all over the green card with peeled paint distress ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Shaz. Have a great day!
