This Stampingbella is for my friend at my office. She's a "bling" kind of gal and I think will get a ki ck out of this calendar. The glitzy decorative paper is from Imaginisce "Color Me Happy" and picks up on all the colors I used with my Copics to fill in the stamped image. The little stripe with flower "stamp" on the left is from some embellishments I've had for a loooooong time (don't remember where it came from). I used the "jewels to enhance the main square and the ribbon. I also used 3-D paint in the corners, too.

The second calendar is for a guy who also works in my office. Lovely As A Tree is the basis for this one. I used glossy white and rubbed on a graduation of color from Always Artichoke to Apricot Appeal to do a "wash". I then did the image with Versamark and embossed it with brown and did a little "fill in" with SU markers (Chocolate Chip and Always Artichoke). I set this all on dimensionals to make the whole calendar pop. The sentiment is from SU's Best Yet set (first time to use it).

Hope you like these two calendars. I still plan on doing more, but my new stamps have not yet shown up -- will have to get them "wet" later.

Hugs to all .......... Linda
