For January 1, 2012:
The design is based on a "Tempting Template" challenge from a Stamper's Sampler Take Ten issue. The center image is a Karen Foster sticker, layered on red paper and popped up with mounting tape, and embellished with an eyelet and ribbon.
For January 2, I continued with the same template, turned sideways:
Stamp is a very old one from long-defunct Appalachian Art Stamps. I had made a bunch of holiday/New Year cards with the stripped and snowflake paper so part of what I was trying to do here was use up scraps.
I like this card a lot.
January 3 and January 4, I continued with using up those scraps. The focal images on both are upcycled gift tags from Target (yay, day after Christmas clearance sale!) for quick and easy cards. I found my eyelet setter kit AND a bunch of eyelets so I went old school with these.
On January 5th, I went back to some traditional Christmas colors:
The wreath is from A Muse Art Stamps.
And finally, on January 6, I moved away from the Christmas cards to an all occasion "hello" card. I had two challenges here. The card came about as a way to use up those little flower stickers, which had gotten loose and were all over one of my embellishment drawers. After I gathered them up I decided to use them and get them out before they could roam again. And also, I had recently read or overheard someone saying that they had been obsessed with navy blue and red as a color combination lately, so I decided to combine my red flowers with some navy blue. Another very quick and easy card.
So my challenge is begun! Stay tuned and we'll all find out if I can keep this going!
