Sprinkle a Little Love


Today is the day I post a project for our Challenge Your Stash group on SCS.  This is our 37th month of de-stashing-we are starting our 4th year into our challenges. I am posting a day early as I have another 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.

Laura Jean posted our January challenge--Sprinkle a Little Love!

The background is an embossing folder from Sizzix called Hearts and they look to be falling from the sky! I went with a Whipper Snapper Designs image called Sending Love that I colored with my Copic Markers.  The sentiment is from the Critter Love Stamp Set by Penny Black.  Red Baker's Twine completes the card.  

Here is the inside of my card.  It looks like the dots are pink and red--but it is two layers of red dotted washi tape that I layered so it looks like two colors!

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 CYSJAN.  You might see many cards there is you do a search.  They probably will be posted today or in the next few days.  Remember, I am a day early, so they might not be posted until tomorrow.

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