Week 1: Stickers

First, I just had to share, I made top five in Young Crafter's Unite die cut challenge!!  (check out my card with the winner and other top five here)  I was super excited when I scrolled down and there was my card!  That was one of my favorite cards last year.  I love the other cards in the top five and feel honored to be up there with them.

Now onto the card - I'm challenging myself this year to use up some of the supplies I have (which doesn't necessarily mean that I won't buy more throughout the year ;)).  The first challenge I issued myself was to use stickers.  I don't seem to grab for them very often, so I went sifting through my sticker stash and found this set:

I really like the colors and the fun shapes of the set so I wanted the sticker to be the star of the card.  I couldn't settle on one sticker from the pack, so I made a set of cards using all 7 of the main stickers:

I kept them pretty simple.  I inked over a number template for the card background.  Added a 1 1/4" strip of patterned paper, the sticker in the center, and a rhinestone on each side.  To finish it off I rounded the bottom corners.  

One stash item gone and SEVEN new cards created!!  Gotta love those numbers :D

I'm going to play along with the following challenges:

And for my next self challenge, I'm going to continue with stickers, but I'm going to challenge myself to use alphabet stickers for the sentiment.  

Have a great weekend!!
