Hey, all! Happy New Year! Quiet weekend at home for us so I'm alternating between things around the house, taking down Christmas and stamping. I got the second half of my desk calendar done yesterday and started on another project I'll share when mailed. For now, here are the 2nd half for 2021.
Same set, Beauty Abounds, and mostly just dots like the first 6. July. No real reason to pick purple, except that purple is always the right answer :) My reason last time was that flowers around here are generally in full bloom and they are almost always purple! This is all 3 shades of purple we currently have: Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Purple Posy. Large circles are Grape, small Heather, dots Posy. Card base and accent also Grape. Tricolor ribbon knotted around.
August. I made notes of my colors last time and this one said Sunflower. Sunflowers generally do bloom around then here and I am a big fan! Colors here are the new In Color Bumblebee (large dots, speckles, base and accent) and Cinnamon Cider (small dots). Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon tied around for accent.
September. This is a very different combo than any done previously. This says fall to me, like Mums. Blackberry Bliss and Bumblebee. Large dots, background and accent in Blackberry. Small dots in Bumblebee, splatters in Smoky Slate. Bumblebee ribbon for accent.
October. This is a combo I stumbled on accidentally last time with these: Merry Merlot and Crumb Cake. The Merlot always feels a little red to me, and I'm generally not a fan of that. But Merlot (the wine!) I am a huge fan of! October is the time of year we generally go to Napa, or I should say in the past have gone to Napa. Not sure that will ever happen again, but I still like this combo! Large dots, base and accent layers are Merlot. Small dots and ribbon Crumb cake. Smoky Slate splatter dots.
November. Fall, Thanksgiving. The splatter is a little too dark on this one, but I'll live with it! Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Soft Suede. Suede splatter, Curry small dots, Pumpkin large dots, accent and background.
Lastly! December. Cherry Cobbler and Gray Granite. Did the dots a little different, they kind of make me think of snowmen! and no small dots, just some splatters. Cherry dots, accent and base layer. Granite splatter and ribbon. Done!
Thanks all for stopping by today! Ask if any questions. I haven't been doing product detail link, but I can help if you have questions. Some of the ribbon I've used are retired but colors this round are all current. I'm going to go finish a few Christmas boxes and try to get back to the stamp room for a while!
