Stamping Platform

  1. Cut a piece of Mixed Media White paper to 8" square.
  2. Smoosh Faded Jeans and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide inks onto a craft mat, spritz with water, and drag the Mixed Media paper through the ink. Spritz with water. Heat set, and repeat the process until you're happy with the coverage.
  3. Lightly sponge some Black Soot Distress Oxide ink onto the paper, spritz with water, and heat set until completely dry, then heat set another time to be doubly sure.
  4. Secure the Oxided paper securely to the base of a stamping platform, position the Decor Music stamp as desired, apply ink to the stamp, then stamp. Repeat until you have a complete impression.
  5. Trim the stamped music paper to 7.75" square, sponge with Black Soot Distress ink, and adhere to an 8" square piece of black chipboard.
  6. Stamp Moon Song onto white cardstock and color with Copic markers. 
  7. Use the Square Nestabilities set to die-cut a frame for the image.
  8. Die-cut the numbers from heavy cardstock using the Beauty Queen font set or any other large alphabet die set.
  9. Smoosh the frame onto the VersaMark pad, add Marcasite Sparkly Embossing powder, dump off the excess, and heat set. Repeat to build up dimension and shimmer.
  10. Repeat step 9 with the die-cut numbers.
  11. Adhere the Moon Song image panel behind the frame.
  12. Adhere the calendar below the framed image panel.
  13. Adhere the numbers as shown to finish the calendar.
