Wed. 1/19/2011 Design D.I.V.A.S. (FB) Blog Hop

Welcome to the Design D.I.V.A.S  Oldie but Goody Blog Hop. 
If you arrived from Melissa Cash's blog, you are in the right place. 



The idea for this hop is to create a card, scrapbook page or 3D item using any of our stamps/supplies that are at least 6 months old.  Although I have been stamping for only 5 years, I have some really old stamps ( an Ebay find) that haven't seen any ink in a really long time.

Here is my first card, using two Stampin' Up stamps.  The door is from 1995, and the little girl is from 1999.   The other two stamps I used are newer, but I haven't used them in quite a while either.
I scored the house siding with my Scor-Buddy and colored my images with Copic markers. The flower pot is from Nina Brackett's "Lord of the Season" stamp set. The sign with the sentiment is from Gina K's "Funny Farm" set.   


Here is a slightly different angle to show the door.



This has been fun looking for through my stash for a stamp that hasn't been used in a while (omg, there are so many lonely stamps). I decided to make another card. The dp has been hanging around for a long time too!
 I colored this with Copics and is an image from Asela Hopkins "Zoo Animals" stamp set. I stamped an additional mane and tail, then popped it up to add dimension.




Thank you very much for hopping along the the Design D.I.V.A.S. and for stopping by to see what I created!

Now it's time for you to head over to Angie Williams' blog, to see what she's going to share with you today! I bet it's fabulous!
