Special GinaK Designs Blog Hop

Welcome to GinaK Designs' special mid-month release of Tami Mayberry's newest release, Calendar Bits & Pieces and Calendar Grid. There are so many elements in this set to create tons of projects with for many occasions. I decided to show this set's versatility by making my own background papers for the following cards. I followed Tami's current CPS sketch, which I flipped sideways, for all of them. I designed my own gridlines to make it easier to stamp straight. You can download the gridline patterns --->>> HERE.

Card #1 This Thanksgiving card uses the leaf and some of the sentiments from the set. I used Pumpkin Spice, Sweet Corn CS, Vivid Inks (Brick, Straw, Olive, Tuscan Sun) and SU Really Rust.


Card #2 This classic Christmas card uses the larger snowflake from Tami's previous set, Special Delivery, and paired it with the smaller snowflake from her Calendar B&P set. Don't Cranberry Tart and Green Apple look great together? I also colored in the bigger snowflakes with glitter pen. The ribbon is the Cranberry Tart satin.

Card #3 Here is a springy birthday card that uses one of my favorite color combo at the moment: baby pink and red. I used SU Pink Pirouette and GKD Rocket Red cardstock and ribbon. The big heart is also from Special Delivery while the little heart and flower are from Calendar B&P.


Card #4 This baby boy card uses the star and baby carriage from the new set. I used Memento Summer Sky and Vivid Brick. The cardstocks are Rocket Red and SU Bashful Blue.


For some helpful tips on how to use the Calendar Bits & Pieces and Calendar Grid stamp sets, please be sure to check out Gina's blog and StampTV for a helpful video on just how quick and easy it can be to use! Both of these sets as well as the PDF version of the Calendar Grid image will be available for purchase tonight over on our online store.

  22. Hi, Nina,
    Thanks for the Gridlines background. What a great idea! I used it for my card based on the same sketch. I don't have Tammy's stamp set yet so I stamped it with what I have.
