Calendar Bits & Pieces Blog Hop

Welcome to GinaK Designs' Calendar Bits and Pieces Blog Hop. This versatile set was illustrated by Tami Mayberry. I made 3 cards to share with you tonight. All supplies are by GinaK Designs, unless otherwise noted.

Card #1: I stamped the music stamp from Vintage Borders with Vivid Tuscan Tan ink, then stamped the numbers from Calendar Bits and Pieces on top of that with Memento Rich Cocoa. The patterned paper is something I've had for years. I love how the paper turned out.

Calendar BP 3

Here's a close up of the patterned paper. The sentiment is from Tami's Special Delivery set. The buttons are from the Neutral Asst Pack. The lace is from Walmart.

Card #2: I stamped the music stamp from my Vintage Borders set on Emily Giovanni's Vintage Holly digipapers. The Labels 1 stamp, tree and sentiment are from Calendar Bits and Pieces. I used Kraft, Ivory and All Spruced Up CS, twill ribbon and the Holiday Assortment buttons. The lacy panel is actually a plastic table cloth that is common in Croatia. I just cut a square and used it on my card.

Card#3: This goes with the Color Challenge this week at StampTV that I'm hosting to make a monochromatic card. Here's the other half of the patterned paper I created from Card #1. The sentiment and Label outline are from Calendar Bits and Pieces. I stamped the smaller numbers from the Special Delivery set on the paper flower.
