Hi my friends!
It's time for my FAVORITE card challenge ~
One Plus Twelve!
This is my 4th year doing this personal challenge,
perks of being a night owl :)
To chose ONE stamp to use all year long (once a month = TWELVE months)
Then, at the end of 2022, there will be 12 unique and different cards.
The most fun is deciding which fun stamp will be the one showcased!
It's also a great way to stretch the use of our purchases ~
sometimes, we buy a stamp, use it only once and then it sits :)
My ONE new in '22:
I chose this stamp with intention and was mindful of the belief
that butterflies are symbolic for representing change, endurance, hope, life.
It was a deeply personal decision to chose a butterfly
after a medical issue in March of last year.
There are many, many butterfly stamps on the market,
but I fell head over heels in love with this one at it's debut in April 2021.
I've held on to it for a LONG time :)
When you know, you know ♥
For January's card,
I used watercolors to color both the butterfly and the background.
I used the matching die cut to give it the outline and popped it up on foam tape.
For a bit of elegance, I added a die cut circle of vellum for under the butterfly.
I'm slightly obsessed with this card, truly!
After 2 years of using flowers (MFT Stamps and last year, Altenew),
this one is all that I wanted it to be, especially for the first card in my series!
You can join me on YouTube where I talk more about the series,
this card, the company, and more!
and you see their cards on their blogs.
Here's a final look.
This set has 2 butterflies, one full and one side view - so beautiful!
I'm really excited to create with this sensational butterfly 12 times this year :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Be blessed ;)
