project as guest designer for Courtney at Created by Courtney.
This calendar was made using the Sweet and Sassy set called Be Still. I first stamped this sweet deer image with a clear versamark ink. I added my clear embossing powder and heat set it with my hear gun. After that i used the direct ink approach with my ink it up inks (4 or 5 various colors of browns and greens) then I topped it off with a gold ink. After it looked the way I wanted it to, I took a soft towel and gently removed the ink from the embossed image. I matted this on a sturdy cardstock almost as thick as chipboard, layered it with a piece of cs from the DCWV old world stack, printed the mini calendar off the computer, cut and attached with eyelets.
I realize it is the end of February and a little late for a calendar project :/. I wanted to make a different one for this post, but time escaped me. i did gift this calendar to my friend and secret sister Norma. I hope she enjoys it.
I was also able to make this simple note card set for a friend. I made these fairly simple. I used my martha stewart border punch, ran the CS through my cuttlebug using birds and swirls, cut the scalloped oval out with my nestie, oval out with my cricut, stamped the sent and added to the layered card. I thought this set was so much fun and so easy to work with. It can make a statement with a card full of embellishments as well as a simple card such as these.
I had so much fun creating these projects for you Courtney. Thank you again for the opportunity!
