So, I used the holly leaves from the "very vintage Christmas set" from Waltzingmouse stamps. I coloured them with marFkers, I applied Christmas red Stickles and Polar White Flower Soft.
For the base I used a garland shaped piece of styrofoam I bought from my local craft shop. I coloured it with Acrylic paint, and I wrapped around it a piece of golden ribbon (recycled from a chocolate box).

I used one of my favourite stamps sets from Kitchen sink stamps to make this calendar page. The small birds are from a Papertrey (Birds of feathers).
The Kitchen sink stamps are not colored in, these are multi-step stamps , each image has 4 or 5 layers of color. I really love this calendar page, maybe because autumn is my favourite time of the year and I was born in October. I love these warm colors.
Stamps: Multi-step pumpkins, multi-step harvest (one of my super-favourite sets), Birds of feathers (Papertrey)
Inks: mix of Memento inks, distress inks for the background.
Accessories: Gina K cardstock, dimensional dots

I have managed to take a picture without natural light. I created the background with Distress Inks and Waltzingmouse stamps.
I used the Very Vintage Christmas set from Waltzingmouse stamps- The holly leaves have a 3-d effect because I covered with Glossy accents. The vintage text is from Text It (Waltzingmouse stamps).
I used my new circle laced nestabilities.
I have three more tags that I made with my new Waltzingmouse stamps and nestabilities but the natural light we have in Finland in this period of the year is not good enough to take a decent photo. The submissions must be done by today.
I have used the Very Vintage Christmas set from Waltzingmouse stamps.

I embossed the frame with Gold and Silver embossing powder. I used the Very Vintage Christmas stamp set that was released last year.

I am going to enter this project in the Kitchen Sink Stamps challenge "Ushering Fall".
I colored the terrain and sky with distress inks. I will probably add a sentiment, but I haven't decided yet.
I really love multi- step stamps. I used multi-step pumpkins, multi-step trees, multi-step sunflowers.
First of all, I apologize for the picture. In this period, there is a lot of rain in Finland and I don't have very good natural light when I come back from work.
This is a mini calendar that I made for a friend, on the right I placed a larger calendar page (not in the picture).
I used the Multi-step harvest and multi-step pumpkin sets.
I am going to enter this project in the current Kitchen Sink Stamp challenge.
