He has Made Everything Beautiful....Gift Set

Hi, Friends......

Here's a project I made a few months ago and never got blogged. (I am soooooooooo behind on blogging!!) It was a birthday card and calendar gift set for a friend. I used a mini-calendar from my crafty pal, Karen Ladd. (THANKS, Karen!!) Even though the year was already underway, a magnetic calendar is always useful in the home office or the kitchen. My backgrounds are on mixed media paper using a bunch of inks and sprays. I used a NBUS peacock feather stamp by Denami which I heat embossed in gold. LOVE!!!

I am entering this in the Cards und More Challenge this month.  Look at this fabulous mood board they gave for inspiration:

Supplies used include:
Denami Design - Peacock Feathers stamp set
Verve - Scripture Medley 3 stamp set (retired)
Versamark Ink
Ranger - Gold Superfine Detail Embossing Powder
Dylusions Ink Spray
Prima - Gold Doilies
Taylored Expressions - Mini-Calendar
AB Rhinestones from stash

Hope you enjoyed seeing this project. It was a fun one to make with all the sprays and gold embossing!! Thank you for stopping by today.

  12. Wow, Janis, I love the wonderful bright and bold colors of this set! It just vibrates off the monitor! Love all the gold - the feather is sensational and the gold doilies are a great idea. In fact, I have some ancient, I mean ancient, doily dies on NBUS Mt ... never knew what to do with them really, so thank you for the inspiration! Keep well and thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell
