March Calendar: “A Little St. Patrick’s Birdie”


Above is the calendar we made in class for March.


Stamp Set:         A Little Birdie Told Me

Ink:                      Always Artichoke

                                Basic Black

Paper:                 Whisper White: (8-1/2″ x 8-1/2″) and (7″ x 2-1/4″)

                                Certainly Celery Card Stock (8″ x 8″)

                                Certainly Celery DSP (7″ x 1″) plus scraps to punch out small hearts

                                Garden Green- 3 strips (7″ x 1/8″)

                                Bashful Blue Card Stock scrap for bird images

Accessories:    Heart to Heart Punch, Watercolor Markers, Brads for embellishments, Dimensionals


I tore the Certainly Celery DSP to resemble  grass or a hill, adhered it to the Whisper White Card Stock and stamped several flowers on the hill and background. I used markers to color in the flowers.  Then I stamped the two birds in Basic Black on Bashful Blue Card Stock and cut them out. Using the Heart to Heart Punch I cut nine small hearts out of various sheets of Certainly Celery DSP. I used three hearts to create the shamrocks and placed a brad in the middle of each. I put all the pieces together as shown above. I used Dimensionals for the birds.
