Old Made New #1...Celebrate

One thing I would LOVE to do this year is to use an old stamp/stamp set or a die/dies from my vast collection and CREATE with them again...often times old things in MY collection get forgotten and I am feeling very bad about that!!  Over the years I have seen other cardmakers do this, but in these beginning days of January, I have done that...not thinking any further than the day that I was creating. I DID think, today, that I have thoroughly enjoyed playing with my old "stuff", and would like to make it a regular occurrence on my blog.  I'm not quite sure what's going to constitute old, but I've got a lot of really old stamps, so no prob there:)!!   I am going to try to create a new card and post every so often using old dstamps and dies...starting today:)!!...
 I last used this Hampton Arts stamp back in 2012...HERE.  And although the first and last ones are similar to that one in layout, I used paint chips on the one above, rather than stamping on card stock, and colored the last one.
 I LOVE rainbows, but decided on this second one, to use one set of paint chips with five different shades of blue and then frame (I am LOVING FRAMES:)!!) the candles and sentiment.  I stamped both cards with black ink and clear embossed, then cut out.  Here's a close up...

The third one I chose to stamp on kraft paper, using versamark and white embossing powder...I wanted to try having candles with a white outline.  I used my Prismacolor pencils to color the candles and flames.  I used glossy accents on all three cards on the middles of the flames.  
The stamp may be old, but still just as much fun as ever:)!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  10. I like each and every one of the cards, but particularly how you dressed up your old to the new with a frame and change of color. Like the white outlined on kraft as well. Great job.
