Hi Everyone, Happy New Year !!!!!  Anet here today and welcome to my inspiration post. I made a Desktop Calendar with the Couture Creations Calendar Tabs for 2022 along with the brand new and sneak peak and soon to be released of stamps and dies called the “Homely Florals Collection” .

Step by Step Instructions: I first trimmed white cardstock to 4 3/4″ x 11″ and score it at 5 1/2″ to create card base. For the stand I trimmed white cardstock to 4″ x 4 3/4″ and score 4″ side at 1″2″ at both edges and then at 2″. I fold it in half, then fold 1/2″ flaps back (looks like a “w”) and adhere the stand along the inside edges of the tent (middle fold is up). I then trimmed Carnelian Cardstock to 4 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ Couture Creations Blending Card to 4 1/4″ x 5″. I stamped the Charming Banksia Stamp onto the blending card using the Stamp and Colour Outline Ink Pad Soft Black.  I then coloured the image with the Couture Creations Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers.

Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Marker Combinations:

  • Banksia: 205, 216, 188, 106, 123
  • Leaves: 9544, 2288, 377
  • Stem: 7502, 401, 479

I then die-cut Carnelian Cardstock with the Homely Florals Love Sentiment Cutting Die and Butterfly Garden Ornate Corners Die. I adhered the Couture Creations 2022 Calendar Tab onto Carnelian Cardstock which I trimmed to 2 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ to finish.
