Revisiting Izzy

I'm hoping to play with some older stamps and give them some love again. I have so many uninked stamps, or stamps that I wanted so badly when they were first released, and then stamped them only once after I got them. Or not at all...

Do you have those stamps, too? Please say "yes".

Izzy is one of those stamps. So I paid her a revisit and stamped and colored her. After cutting her out with the deckle Nestabilities die, I added grass to the bottom, using Kim's tutorial shown here. I also dabbed some Glossy Accents on her eyes and used an Aqua Lip pen to glaze her lips.

The challenge at All That Scraps is to use die cuts and I was glad to see Izzy in the ATS store so my card qualifies--and I made the deadline, too!

Thanks, always, for visiting! Can you believe it's already the middle of August?

Patterned paper: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Antique Linen distress ink

  5. I have boatloads of neglected stamps, so don't feel bad. I'm surprised they don't call the rubber stamp equivalent of PETA and report me as an irresponsible owner! However, there is a redeeming satisfaction when one of those uninked beauties finally introduces ink to paper ;D

    This card is beautiful and how lucky for us that you decided to get her out and show her some love ;D

  9. Izzy is so beautiful! I am the same way, I'm really trying to break that habit of letting stamps sit there, I bet we own stamps we have totally forgotten about! You're always so inspiring!

  17. Adorable card Donna! Izzy is so cute and as always your colouring is amazing. I love that you added the touches of Glossy Accents and glaze from the Aqua Lip pen! I'm afraid I'm guilty of having neglected and unused stamps - I should follow your example and get them inky!

  25. Yes, Yes, Yes! I definitely have uninked stamps and neglected stamps by the dozen :). Love your card, Izzy is cute and I like that you've accented her eyes and mouth. I can't believe August is nearly over esp as I don't feel like we've had much summer here in the UK. Can you believe I am wearing gloves right now??? I'm freezing, it's 15C right now.
