Time for the Crafters of Faith monthly challenge
Crafters of Faith is a blog group that I enjoy. This month Sharon is the hostess and she gave us a fabulous challenge theme:
2013 is here! What a great time to clear out the old to make way for the new.
For this challenge, I would like to see you use both old stash and new stash to create your card/project.
To add a little fun to the challenge, I'd love to see you try a new technique - something you've never done before. Make sure you tell us what's new and what's old aand describe the technique you used.
Here's my card:
I'm not sure everyone would agree it's a technique, but I think it is. I used an embossing folder - nothing new about that, right? But the new part for me is I put together the layers of the card front - all except the oval sentiment, the ribbon and the card base. Then I embossed all the layers at one time. I saw that on a card recently and loved the way it looked, so wanted to try it myself. I like it!
Well, for those of you who know me - you know I've been trying not to use anything newly purchased in my cards for the first 100 days of 2013. So I took a little liberty with Sharon's specifications of using something new and something old on my card.
The Old: Easy - the DP (I've had that pack forever), the cardstock (again - forever), the inside image (Ive used it before), even the embellishments.
The New - I used a stamp I've had for a while but have NEVER used. It had never seen ink before, so in that sense it was/is new to me. It's the sentiment on the front of my card.
I hope the Crafters of Faith don't think I cheated.
This is my 36th card in the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge.
