# 68 - New Year Creative Challenge Begins...


Long time since I posted something on my blog. Was caught up with so many other commitments. First and foremost, Happy New Year to all....

After finishing my Christmas series(which I enjoyed a lot), I got thinking about my next plans for crafting this year and I came up something. I am going to call it my very own Creative Challenge. Well, I am going to be really flexible about it, but going to try and stick to what I have decided as much as possible.

After my Christmas series, I started reorganising my craft area and while doing so realized I have so much of material in stash that I have not used. So, this year I am going to select one thing every week and work on it - be it stamps, dies, stencils,quilling or any new technique... just anything.That does not mean, I wont do anything else. I definetly will. But highlight of the week would be that I chose. I am hoping to be regular about my commitment here but I think there would be some ups and downs. Lets hope I stick to my plan and just do it.

So, to begin I started with the Altenew Majestic Bloom Stamp set and here is my first card with it.

Lots of masking done here. Used the Winnie and Walter Stamps for sentiment.

Entering this card for the :

Happy Anniversary Paru.

  2. I love it! Nice and bold with the flowers in the corner and the big sentiment in the other. Good luck with your challenge to yourself - I too have a lot of things in Stash so I'm trying very hard not to get anything more Stamp wise until I have finished the projects I've already started.
