My ONE in 2021 - August

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.

This month I used my ONE stamp to create the background by stamping it randomly onto a piece of white cardstock. I also stamped it onto a piece of designer paper and then diecut that leaf for the focal leaf on my card, which I placed on top of a piece of diecut vellum. I used a blending brush to add ink around the edges of the stamped layer as well as the vellum layer.

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.
