Maui Stamper DIY Easel Calendar Pop of Pink

I fussy cut that one pine with my paper snips and attached it to the calendar with a couple of Glue Dots. They give a tiny bit of lift without too much height – more visual height that actual height.

2018 DIY Calendars and Easel Calendars are ready to ship! I’ll post the details later today.

Crystal and Cheryl have more great DIY calendar inspiration for you today – head over and see!

    • Dear Roberta,

      I used Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizazz as the base colors for the pineapples. I masked off the top of the pine and inked the bottom with Daffodil, then used a Crushed Curry marker along the lines to add depth. I pulled off the mask and carefully tapped the Pear Pizazz ink onto the top part of the pine, then used the Old Olive marker to add depth along the lines.

      You could use a sponge dauber to add the base layer of ink if you wanted more control – I was lazy. Now that we have the Stamparatus, you could color the top and bottom separately and stamp away without worrying about alignment!

      Thanks for asking!
