Today is the day I post a project for our Challenge Your Stash group on SCS.  This is our 36th month of de-stashing-we are finishing our 3rd year into our challenges.  I am a day early in posting as I have a special post tomorrow on the 28th!

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.

I posted our December challenge--Make a card using only your dies!

I used two dies that I am not sure I have used in the past.  The background is a Tim Holtz die called Swirling Stars.  I cut it out of Night of Navy cardstock and then embossed the piece with a Stampin' Up Folder called Subtle Dynamic.  The Cheer word is a MFT-My Favorite Things Die that I cut from Harborside Mirri Sparkle from The Paper Cut.  That same cardstock is the layer behind the stars.  There is more sparkle that shows in the picture!

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 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 CYSDEC.  You might see many cards there is you do a search.  They probably will be posted tomorrow or later due to the Christmas holiday!

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 January, Laura Jean is up and has already posted a fun theme.  Be sure to check back to see what we create!

WOW - loving this card Barb - the sparkle must be awesome IRL, although I did get a glimpse of it. Great use of the two die cuts!
