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.
