Colorful Seasons Calendar ~ Part 4

I have a small, but precious team of Stampin’ UP! demonstrators and each Christmas I like to make them a gift .  This year I decided to make a ‘Flip-over’ calendar for each of them using the Tolsby picture frame from IKEA.  After I finished each of the months I realized that the design could equally be used as a card front, so each can do double duty!

Today I am sharing the last 3 months.  You can catch up with Jan thru March here, April thru June here and July thru September here.

After I completed the calendar many of my ladies admired it – so later this year we will be doing a class to make the calendar for 2019.

October  celebrates Halloween

Layer 1: 5 1/2 x 4 Pumpkin Pie Card

Layer 2: 5 x 3 1/2 Whisper White

I used the Spooky Cat stamp set for October (sadly retired at the beginning of January)  with Archival Black  and Old Olive Slate Ink.  The Cat  is cut from Pumpkin Pie card with the Cat Punch and I fussy cut the witch’s hat with sharp paper snips.  I colored some rhinestone with a black Sharpie and scattered them around.

On to November – the month for Thankfulness ~ :

Layer 1: 5 1/2 x 4 Cajun Craze Card

Layer 2: 5 x 3 1/2 Whisper White

The Paisley’s and Posies  Stamp set is was used to create the pattern at the top, and I went a little crazy with the ink colors ~ Soft Suede. Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry and Emerald Envy. I finished this one with a sprinkling of Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes.

December completes the year :

It can be hard to find any theme other than St Patrick’s day for March – unless Easter falls early but for 2018 Easter falls on April 1st.

Layer 1: 5 1/2 x 4 Always Artichoke Card

Layer 2: 5 x 3 1/2 Whisper White

The Christmas Pines Stamp Set was the obvious choice for me for December.  I used the Pine Twig stamp with Always Artichoke ink  then cut a pine cone using two of the dies from  the Pretty Pines Thinlets set, the background in Early Expresso Card and the top ‘lacy’ looking layer from Gold Foil.  Again I colored some Rhinestones, this time with a red Sharpie and topped the pine cone with a bow made from the 1/8 real red ribbon.
