I’m smitten with #Elfie! He’s just the guy I want hangin’ out on my craft desk this month!
- Stamps: #Elfie, Signs of Santa (retired, I’m sorry!)
- Color Palette: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Mossy Meadow, Daffodil Delight, Ivory, Gold
- Accessories: Paper Snips, Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Blends, Snowfall Accents Puff Paint, Heat Tool
I went a little over-the-top with the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint. Well, actually, I went over-the-top with the Paper Snips, too. In the stamped image, #Elfie is leaning against the bottom of the signpost, but that makes the image too tall for a little calendar! I REALLY wanted to use this image, so out came the snips and I disassembled the whole business.
When I figured out how to settle him into a snowbank with the post popping out I was pretty pleased with myself. But…it looked a little empty. Maybe it was just lop-sided, but it needed something. That’s when I dug into my retired stash for the set from last year. It’s just the packages, and I could have probably hand-drawn them…HA. Imagine how successful that would have been!
This turned out just the way I imagined it, which is quite a feat. If you’re imagining your own set of DIY Easel Calendars for 2020, there’s still time to purchase the PDF! It’s just $5 and you can print your own set of months to play with all year long. Click Contact the Maui Stamper above and give me your email, and I’ll send you an invoice.
