One Plus Twelve - Take 6

Kelly had a great idea to use one stamp twelve different ways in each of the months of 2019... and she asked Barb and I to join her in this adventure, which she called One Plus Twelve. Of course Barb and I quickly agreed and on January 3 we each revealed which stamp would be "the one" stamp. On the third of each month we will reveal another card made with our one stamp.

The stamp I chose for this year-long adventure is the dragonfly from the Unity Be the Best stamp set. You can see my cards from the previous five months HERE.

For June I decided to use a recycled item on my card (sort of in keeping with this quarter's Flea Market Flip series here on my blog).

I tore a page out of a Scholastic Children's Dictionary that I purchased at our local thrift store for $2. Of course the page I chose to use is the one that had the word dragonfly on it. 

I stamped directly onto that page from the dictionary for my focal image on my card...

I hope Kelly and Barb like my card. Now let's head over to their blogs to see their One Plus Twelve cards...

This is such a neat challenge. I am going to try to remember it and maybe do it next year. Love the idea of using the dictionary page. Great card!

I like the way you stamped directly onto the page that you were recycling. The look is so artsy. 12 different cards with one stamp? What a great idea.
