Fall Colors in the Flower Shop

This year for my October Easel Calendar I decided to take a break from Halloween:

Maui Stamper October 2014 DIY Easel CalendarI mean, Halloween is a lot of fun – and it’s a Really Big Deal in Hawaii – but I just couldn’t bring myself to look at spiders all month.  Can you relate to that?

  • Stamps:  Flower Shop
  • Color Palette:  Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Cherry Cobbler
  • Accessories:  Pansy punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Crystal Effects

Maui Stamper October 2014 DIY Easel CalendarWhen I first order Flower Shop (AND the Pansy punch, of course – this kind of thing goes without saying) I discovered that Stampin’ Up! had pulled a bit of a fast one on us.  The flower – and the punched image – are NOT symmetrical.  You can’t just stamp that flower and punch it out any ol’ which-a-way.  I developed a solution and posted a mini-tutorial: you can check it out HERE.

Take a look and see what Cheryl and Crystal have done with their calendars this month.  We all hope you enjoy our mini-tour!

Today is also DAY 1 of  Stamp, Stock and Save.   Card stock, ink, adhesive and envelopes are discounted 15%, and a select group of stamps has 20% savings.  This deal lasts only until October 6, so don’t miss it!  Get all the details HERE.
