Walking Together Tag and A Personal Challenge

We all set personal challenges for ourselves from time to time.  I have met some folks who wear a "Fit Bit" (or something similar) and have a personal challenge of having so many footsteps a day.   Some folks may have a challenge of drinking so much water before noon.  Whatever the challenge is -- it is always something that a person wants to achieve in a certain period of time. I challenged myself to see how many different cards I could create with one Technique Junkie stamp set -- "Vintage Travel Cases" - So from now to the end of February (with the exception of the day after Valentine's Day when I will have a special project to share on my blog) nearly every card I post will be made with this one Technique Junkie Stamp set.  I will add in a few others on occasion. But there will be at lest three cards each week created with this one set.   I may use background papers, other Technique Junkie stamps, punches, die cuts, and etc. but each card will feature this one stamp set in one way or another.  By the time I have finished with this challenge (counting the first two cards for the February 1 Blog Hop) I will have created 14 unique cards with  Technique Junkie set called "Vintage Travel Cases."  I will be sharing these all with you over the month February. 

I used a lot of different Technique Junkie stamps on this card.  I am going to list them and I don't remember in what order I used them but I I am not sure that matters.   I did use a piece of background paper to start with and then altered it with stamps and sponging.  So I used these Technique Junkie stamps on the background and on the tag.  Both pieces also has pale Antique Glimmers applied to them before I stamped the stamps.  

I used:
Wasted  -  
Key Script  -
Measure Up -
Passport - 
Vintage Travel Cases -

I sponged around the edges of the tag and around the vellum piece i stamp the couple on.  I used my Copic Markers to color on the front of the vellum piece.  I ran the vellum through my Xyron machine to attach the adhesive.  I tied a few ribbons on the tag with a piece of gold cording and a few pearls.  

How have you challenged yourself personally? Is it something you can share?

Have a great day --- and get inky!

What a great challenge. I'm looking forward to seeing everything. Your card is awesome. The tag is a unique idea. I actually challenged myself to be more of an active participant on stamping forums but it hasn't come to fruition. Working full time makes it a little hard I guess.

Hi Judy. Got behind and catching up. Nice looking card. Just say it's the Judy technique, lol. I really like your tag tie assortment and that little pleat on the bottom. My tracking number says I should get my stamp order today, hope so. Although I didn't get this set, I managed to load up my cart, lol. My wishlist is still full, too. Happy Valentine's, xoxo.

Rally great idea. It is so fun to stretch the good old imagination and see how different we can make projects using the same image. Love the way the Copics look on the velum!!
