Stampendous Countdown Calendar

It's a super fun Christmas Countdown Calendar!!! I used a simple plastic frame from IKEA and embellished it with gem stones and stamped and embossed snowflakes. I added the adorable little girl, colored seasonally, of course, and it is just a happy fun little count down calendar! YAY!!!

All of the stamps are from the Kiddo Snow Globe Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. It's SO CUTE!!!! I love these stamps!!!

For the number cards, I cut patterned paper cards and printed numbers on white cardstock to mount on the patterned paper. I punched circles, adhered them, then punched a hole in them for hanging from the two book rings. I added a bit of May Arts gingham ribbon cuteness to each card to finish off the calendar!

  20. That is so cute!! I love that-and it would take up less room than an advent calendar. For some reason that little girl stamp reminds me of Dr Seuss characters.
