Challenge Your Stash

Today is the day I post a project for our Challenge Your Stash group on SCS.  This is our 25th month of de-stashing-we are now starting our 3rd year into our challenges. 

The premise is to create a card or something else that uses only items that are in your own stamp room--nothing new is to be purchased.  The hostess each month posts their challenge to the group and the card is due to be posted on the 28th. Each person in the group creates their card with their own image, their own papers, their own embellishments with their own supplies--using up items from their own stash!  The card can be for any occasion and each person is encouraged to send the card on its way to someone so it can be admired.  It is a way for us to step out of the box a bit and create something that follows a challenge--isn't that what a challenge is supposed to be.  And--no money is spent as all items are to be already available in each of own stamping spaces.

Sue posted our January challenge--Make a Thank You card and use some type of embossing on it!

I used a die-cut from The Stamps of Life that I have had for awhile.  I used a similar die on another card that I am posting tomorrow for my A Card a Day Challenge--be sure to check back!  I layered the Cherry Cobbler over another die cut in Early Espresso to give some dimension.  I also used one of my favorite embossing folders, Tufted Dynamic from Stampin' Up. 

Here is the inside of my card:

If you check some of the blogs on my sidebar, you may find others who have posted their cards today or in the next few days.  There may be more posted in the thread on SCS, so you might want to check out the link here.  We also have a keyword for the SCS Gallery--it is CYSJAN.  You might see many cards there is you do a search.

I hope you enjoyed my card and I know I am excited to check out what my other hoarders, I mean stash reducers have made!  Thanks for stopping by today!  For February, Shelly is up and we already know our next theme.  Be sure to check back to see what we create!
