Make It A Date
In this issue’s digi stamp pack, you’ll find the months of the year and three calendars which Kitty has used to make a planner plaque. Why not go all out and create a full yearly calendar? Just be sure to match the month to the correct number of days. For example, use the 28-day calendar for February. For March, use the 31-day calendar and so on. If you’re focussing on cards, why not make them bespoke by adding your recipient’s birth month?
Whether you’re crafting for Easter, a birthday, wedding or for someone who’s feeling a little under the weather, there’s a bear for every occasion and event. You’ll notice that each character is cuddling a different motif, so pick and choose to suit the theme of your make. From hearts and books to cakes and flowers, there’s even a bear holding a hat which could come in handy for a Halloween design or birthday party invitation depending on your colour palette.
Take a look at all of Kitty’s cards opposite and you’ll notice that each one features a frame around the bears. Not only does this give your design shape, but your recipient’s eye will be drawn to the main motif. Choose from a polaroid, circle, scallop-edged rectangle or circles. We love the tunnel effect Kitty has achieved on her ‘Happy birthday’ card. By using two nesting circles, she has managed to give her design even more depth and dimension.

Blend mint and pink distress oxide inks onto white card. Die cut the panel using a background die. Print and colour in two teddy bears, then cut out. Stencil a sun ray onto a small square of white card using orange and yellow distress oxide inks. Attach the stencilled panel behind a die-cut polaroid frame and add the two bears. Fix to the card and add a strip of washi tape along the top. Die cut a sentiment from black and white card, layer together, then glue below the polaroid frame. Secure a smaller stamped sentiment along the bottom of the card, then finish with gems.
Matt red polka paper onto a white blank, then layer a smaller panel of rose paper onto white card. Fix to the blank. Add lace and ribbon across the middle. Tie ribbon into a bow and secure to the left-hand side. Print, colour and cut out a teddy bear. Mount a square panel of white card onto a red scallop-edged square, then add a border with a black fineliner, followed by the bear. Finish with a sentiment and gems.
Cover a white blank with grid paper. Layer a smaller panel of red floral paper onto blue card, fix to the card, then add a thin strip of blue card horizontally towards the bottom. Run a strip of yellow patterned paper down the card vertically. Secure a stamped sentiment on top with 3D foam pads. Blend blue distress oxide ink onto a white stitched circle, then mount onto blue card. Print and colour in a teddy bear, then fix to the centre of the circle. Adhere to the card with 3D foam pads. Complete with three gems.
Blend turquoise distress oxide ink onto a white blank. Add a white die-cut scallop-edged frame onto the card with 3D foam pads. Die cut a sentiment from lilac and white card, layer together, then fix to the card. Print and colour in two teddy bears, cut out and secure inside the frame. Finish with three hearts.
Die cut a stitched circle from mint card, then use a smaller stitched circle to die cut white card. Create a small cloud background using a stencil and blue distress oxide ink. Add a green grass strip on top of the cloud background. Fix the two frame pieces on top with 3D foam pads to create a window. Print, colour and cut out the teddy bear and add inside the circular frames. Finish with sentiments and sequins.

Print out the monthly calendar sheet and apply pink distress oxide ink with a blending tool. Add a cloud effect over the top using a stencil and more pink distress oxide ink. Print and colour in a teddy bear face, cut out and glue to the top of the calendar. Print the month and matt onto pink card. Fix to the top next to the bear. Layer the panel onto pink card, followed by a larger panel of floral paper and pink card. Punch two holes in the top and set two eyelets. Thread ribbon through the holes and add gems to finish.
