My project today is...
A easel calendar. Each card is 4 x 6, purchased as a year set from Amuse Studio.  Then I decorated each month with stamps, brads, eyelets, buttons, and bling.

I used a Stampin' Up set for the numbers and embossed in gold. The glasses are an Impress stamp. I used glaze pens to color the glasses in. The snowflakes are PSX and Alota stamps. I embossed them with silver.

The bike stamp is a Savy. It comes with the heart balloons. I added a heart brad on the 14th. the heart stamps on the bottom are Hampton Art embossed with red and colored in with copics for the pinks. The Happy Valentines Day stamp is Hampton Art. The I love you stamp  is All Night Media and the heart stamp is Greenbrier International, all embossed with red.

The clover and Happy St. Patrick's Day stamps are Hampton Art. The bling is confetti that I have had for years. I just pulled out the pieces I wanted to add to this month.

The Happy Easter is a Hampton Art stamp. The egg tree is a Great Impression stamp. The rabbit stamp on the bottom is Hampton Art. I added an egg rivet on Easter Sunday.

We are supposed to give our moms flowers for mother's day right. So I covered the card with flowers and used a flower blind for Mother's Day. The Happy Mother's Day stamp is SU, the corner flower stamps are Flower Commotion The grater stamp with flowers is a Rubbernecker stamp. The flowers stamped all over the page is from one stamp by.

Father's Day being in June, I used a golf stamp made by Stampin' Up. Although not all fathers golf, I thought this was a good stamp to use.  The stamp is colored with various copics.  The sun is done with nameless stamp and colored with copics. The Happy Father's Day stamp is a Stampin' Up. The clouds are from Pink by Design.

The Happy 4th of July and Stars and Stripes Forever are both Rosie's Road Show stamps. I used a star bling for the 4th. The fireworks stamp is also a Rosie stamp. The patriotic guy is an American Art stamp.

The Sand Between my toes, kite, beach house, and pail are all Rosie Road Show stamps. I used real sand for the sand on the calendar. My BFF, Gina, brought it back from the Caribbean Islands. The sandals are buttons, with the shanks cut off. The sun is just a dauber, inked and embossed in yellow.

The Happy Fall is a  Memory Box stamp. The school house and ABC-123 stamps are from a cling set by Paper Company. They are colored with copics.  The leaves are from a strip, stamped with Ranger Inks, of various colors and then embossed.

The Happy Halloween stamp is a  Crafts mart stamp. The tree is a KI Memories. The pumpkins are Hero Arts.  The Halloween birds are DeNami stamps. The tree and the candy corn is a Fiskars stamp. I used a piece of candy corn for the day.

The Happy Thanksgiving is a Hampton Art stamp. The To Gobble or not to Gobble and the turkey are Rosie Road Show stamps. The big leaves are from a 4 sided stamp made by JudiKins. The little leaf stamp is a Linda Schmidt. I added a turkey rivet for the day.

The stockings were all hung by the chimney with care, the reindeer and Santa with sleigh, the chimney and the stockings are all Rosie Road Show. I stamped the stockings separate and glued them on and added the wire by drawing it on. I added a tree for the day. The pine needle stamp is a DeNami stamp. The snowflakes are a PSX stamp that is embossed in silver.

All 12 calendar cards sit on a picture easel.

The calendar sits on a plastic picture easel. It can easily sit on your desk.
