New Again

Have you ever taken a card you did. . . . ages ago and just took it apart and (hopefully) made it better to give away? I took this card of Wizard Dan and removed the Faux Leather layer, added "Faith" dots on top of the paper piercing border and just reattached it to the base. It is brighter and just more simple but I like it better. I will give it to my son tomorrow at his 6th birthday party. I do like the colors of this! And I'm not a bright kinda gal!

Stamps: Wizard Dan (Spiral Whisper); Ink: Various Copic, White Gel Pen (Sakura); Green Galore , Night of Navy, White; Accessories: Clear EP.

IBFS Gnome

It has been so long since I posted. I hadn't forgotten you, just got busy learning my new IMac! Things are a bit different now, a GOOD kind of different! LOL! I can no longer use my scanner with my Mac so I am taking pictures. I ran out of time with the last couple of projects so I don't have pics of them. I made sure to get a picture of this little guy going to my Dad for Father's Day.

This gnome is from I Brake For Stamps (IBFS), from their new Fairy plate. Isn't he just adorable?? Since I still had out all the Copics I used I bundled them up for the picture. I also stuck in there the new sponge I bought from the Close to My Heart booth at the Rubber stamp convention I attended on Sunday.

*soapbox* Please visit your local conventions! It is such a wonderful opportunity to learn of new companies and meet other crafters! I found some awesome stamps at some great prices!! AND. . . . I got to meet Kelley from Our Daily Bread Designs!! Thanks for such wonderful stamps Kelley! And thanks for tracking me down with my bag in hand!! *blushes* Can you believe I got up after making my card and left one of my bags??! *stepping down off soapbox*

I used CPS card sketch for this card. I added "Faith" dots. The designer paper is some retired SU I had sitting in my drawer. I liked how the earthy colors meshed with my gnomes clothing colors. I had to use my largest scalloped rectagle on the white layer so I cut two from Chocolate Chip and made one of them larger. It was a bit of work layering just so but I eventually made it work.
