Penny Farthing Calendar for Spot the SAB Stamp Sets

 Penny Farthing Calendar

This week at Still AddINKtive Challenges we are featuring the second round of  SALE-A-BRATION Stamp Sets - Madison Avenue, Feeling Sentimental and Vintage Verses.  Make sure you go and check out the inspiring projects by the DT, link up your creations (old or new) and get some free templates that are on offer this week.

I decided to have another play with my One Big SALE-A-BRATION 2013 Digital Disc and was pretty pleased that I worked out how to create another shaped card, this time using the Penny Farthing Digital Stamp from the SAB stamp set called, Feeling Sentimental.  We don't have MDS in Australia yet so I made an enlarged mirror image of the 'stamp' using the Print Master 2011 Platinum Edition program.

This is what it looked like before I hand cut around the printed image - 

 
I decided it looked a bit plain by itself and adding too many embellishments would have distracted from the image, so I decided to use my 'card' as the main feature for a Desk Calendar Drawer.

The image was printed on Naturals Ivory Card Stock.

A little bit of the Island Indigo ribbon from the SAB Sycamore Street, Ribbon and Button Pack was tied to the fold at the top of the 'card' and a couple of Silver Metallic Brads were added to the wheels.

The desk drawer was made from a Silhouette Cameo Cutting File out of Textured Early Espresso Card Stock (retired).  An Antique Brad was added for the 'knob'.  The sentiment (Celebrate) from the Feeling Sentimental Clear Mount Stamp Set was stamped inside the card with Island Indigo Ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by addINKtive designs.  I hope you will join in the fun at still addINKtive and SALE-A-BRATE with us!

Very cute project Bronwyn. This is my favorite image from this stamp set. Can't believe you don't have MDS there yet. Bummer!

Brilliant. What more can I say?!!

The pop of colour that the ribbon provides is such a beautiful touch to the vintagey look of this project, Bron. Impressive fussy-cutting!
