My ONE in 2021 - July

The 3rd of each month is a special day here on my blog - it's the day that Kelly (the founder of this series), Barb, and I share our One Plus Twelve cards. The idea is to use the same ONE stamp (not a set) each month to create a card. Sentiments can be used, too, if we choose. Want to know more? You can read all about it on my January 3rd blog post - found HERE.

My ONE stamp this year is the maple leaf from the Stampin' UP! Gather Together stamp set.

I created a Graduation card this month - and some fun and very colorful designer papers.

I also stamped the leaf on colored cardstock, and then colored it with a Copic marker for a bit of a different look.

I tried my best to line up the "rows" of the three colors of gingham DP. I think I succeeded. 

The CAS card challenge on SCS this week is Summer Trees - this card (full of trees) was so easy/fast to make that I think it definitely qualifies, even though there isn't any white space on it.

I hope you'll keep an eye out on the 3rd of each month this year to see how I do with this ONE stamp - and also will check out Kelly's and Barb's ONE stamp cards, too. Speaking of which, let's head over to their blogs now to admire their June cards.
