One Plus Twelve - November!

 Hello friends!

Today I'm sharing another card for my series: One Plus Twelve -

my FAVORITE card series!

The idea behind this card challenge is to take ONE stamp

 - and only one stamp -

and use it once a month to create twelve unique cards all year long.

We all know we often buy a stamp ... use it once ...

 and then file it away.

This is a great way to challenge yourself to use it more than once 

and stretch the creative process :)

For 2021, I am using Altenew's Build-a-flower Magnolia,

my favorite flower <3

You can read all about it here on January's post!

One thing I'm crazy about this year is the buffalo check -

it's everywhere!

I also recycled some tissue paper that came with a gift I received <3

The circle behind the flower isn't vellum - it's white tissue paper!

I paired it with a teal background to give this a pop of color

against the black and white.

The sentiment is from another Altenew stamp set

as are the enamel dots in grey.

I'm also channeling the blue that I'm seeing all year for the farmhouse

inspired looks!

I invited Barb and Jeanette to play along in this challenge 3 years ago

and they have their cards on their blogs - today or later :)

Next month will be the final card in this series until 2022 :)

Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Loving your use of tissue paper behind the image Kelly - it takes the eye to the image, and mutes the background so the image really pops
    Stay safe

  10. I love your concept of using one stamp each month, such a great idea to get use from our supplies. The tissue paper works so well too! Thanks for joining us at The Card Concept challenge.
