Let's Monkey Around Valentine's Day Card

Are you looking for an idea for a Valentine's Day card that is masculine with a little bit of sass to it? Check out this Let's Monkey Around Valentine's Day Card I made.

Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.

I used several stamps from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps to make my card. I first stamped the Monkey Love Stamp with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and then colored him in with Copic markers.

For the sentiment, I used the Monkey Around Stamp and stamped it with VersaFine Clair in Nocturne. I die cut both images out with Memory Box Circle Basics Set and also matted the monkey with red cardstock and the sentiment in black cardstock.
For the background, I used some Kraft cardstock and stamped the Lips Stamp with VersaMark Ink and then embossed it with Mboss Embossing Powder in Sparkle. Then I ran it through my Gemini Jr with the Sizzix 3-D Embossing Folder Confetti Hearts. On the raised up areas of the embossed hearts, I rubbed some Creative Expressions Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish over it to give it a fun gold shimmer.

Since I have been stamping more with red rubber stamps, I needed a better way to store them and be able to find them easier. How do you store yours?
I have been using the Three-Drawer Organizer by Deflecto and so far I am loving it.

It comes in a large or small size. The smaller size comes with dividers in the drawers and is what I am using. The larger one does not have dividers in the drawer so you can store things like 12x12 papers in it. I might have to invest in the bigger one if my stamp collection keeps growing.
Check out all the rubber stamps I was able to fit in there. With the dividers in each drawer, I was able to separate my stamps by themes which really helps to find what I am looking for.

Interested in the products I used? Products that are still available are linked to multiple shops below, for your convenience.

I design for several companies because I genuinely love their products! Anything I recommend on my blog is something that I genuinely love and regularly use. I buy most of my own supplies. However, I do receive some free products to work with, and I sometimes make money for the projects I make. I DO NOT get paid for product reviews, I give my honest opinion about the products I use, and I will never recommend a product that I do not like or would not use.
