I'm showing you PI - Carnation. This is the first in a whole new series of PIs that are flower of the month sets. I'm over the moon excited about this new series. I've had this calendar stand and chipboard bases for a while just trying to decide how to make my calendar. I need one on my stamping table and it needed to have a small footprint and this one works really well in my space. For some reason I hadn't started working on the calendar--and this must be why, LOL! I was waiting for the PI flower of the month without even knowing it.
First in the series is PI - Carnation for January. I stamped my little sweetie on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, colored her with Copic markers, then cut her out. I re-sized (to fit my space) the MFT downloadable calendar pages and printed them off, then I matted it and adhered it to the base that had been covered with card stock and patterned paper. I used the Rounded Banner Die-namics die for the tab on which I stamped the month and added the birthstone for January. Other MFT products I used are Hot Fudge card stock, twill, and Chocolate Kiss button collection.
Here's the stand with the calendar hanging in place. Sorry about this picture. It's too tall to fit in my light box so I did the best I could.

And here are the Copics I used.
