Hello there. How are you this fine Fall day?
I have a twofer to share with you today.
These cards have been repurposed from this card
my dear friend Nance
gave me a year or
maybe two ago. I had tucked it away but never forgotten it. So I asked her if she would
mind if I used some elements from it to repurpose it. She told me to go for it.
When I saw Darnell's Twofer Challenge this month, these candy apples
popped into my mind.
First I have a Halloween card.
I was able to pop the front two apples off without destroying them.
I moved one over a bit and found a piece of cardstock that matched the teal dots
in that dotty apple. The gold foil really looks like caramel. Yum!
The third apple works as a toadstool for this sweet gnome to rest under
as he thinks of his favorite thoughts.
Can you see the glitter in the polka dots?
I stamped this little guy, trying not to stamp his hands and the swing
he was sitting on. After several tries, I decided that wasn't going to happen.
I used my new Arteza Twimakers to add some watercolor to the gnome and fussy cut him out.
Nance gave me this gnome stamp too.
The background was a watercolor piece from my stash.
I added some darker green to the bottom and stamped a bit of grass.
I think I'll send at least one of these back to Nance.
It's the card that keeps on giving.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
