TD06--Anything But a Card

Wow, it seems like the 7th of November arrived so quickly! Which means it's time for another challenge from Tiffany Doodles where you can win up to 7 digis of your choice!

This month's theme is "Anything But a Card". Using a Tiffany Doodles digi isn't a requirement to enter the challenge, but we'd love for you to use them if you have some.


Here's my project using one of Tiffany's newest images--Ducky Umbrella. I made a desk calendar using an acrylic photo frame. After coloring the image, I stamped and embossed the sentiment and sponged around the edges to make the sentiment pop.

I added a grassy border on the bottom and trimmed the card to fit the frame. I didn't have any of the ready made mini calendars on hand, and found a printable one online. I printed it out, trimmed it and stacked the pages to create my own mini calendar.

Please visit the rest of the Tiffany Doodles team--many of whom are leaving this month (Sniff!)--to see their "Anything But a Card" projects. You won't be disappointed!








You have until the end of the month to enter the challenge here for your chance to win up to 7 digis of your choice. Hope you'll play along with us!


Stamps: Tiffany Doodles digital image "Ducky Umbrella", MFT sentiment
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific
Paper: Crate Paper
Ink: Versamark, Chipped Sapphire, Broken China, Antique Linen distress inks
