Rework Wednesday

It looks like winter just might be on the way the wind has been howling all night long and it’s COLD!!!  We also had a little dusting of snow, nothing like my eastern Washington winters, but hey it was SNOW!!!

Today I’m excited to bring you a new series Rework Wednesday!  I receive so many amazing cards from consultants that inspire my creativity, but sometimes I just use them as a jumping off point.  I might like the concept, but just need to make a tweak here and there – use a different paper, change the colors, modify the size, etc.  I thought this would be fun for you to see how some of my cards come to life.

The first card I’m going to feature was made by my downline Stephanie Capelli.  Stephanie is married to my husband’s nephew and creates amazing cards…her style is usually the exact opposite of mine and we both recently participated in the November Stamp of the Month swap.

This is Stephanie’s card.  The things I love about it are that she used a base of Kraft cardstock, kept the images simple, added just a tiny bit of bling and oh yes, the size – I LOVE tiny cards.

Here’s mine.  Although I love tiny cards, sometimes I want a larger format so the first thing I did was turn this into a standard 4.25 X 5.5 card  I kept the Kraft base and added a strip of Fundamentals paper and a strip of Gold Glitter paper.  I layered the images on a solid piece of cardstock and popped the entire panel up.  I kept the images the same and even added the same bitty sparkles.

 

I hope you enjoy rework Wednesday…see you soon!
