The weather here in the Chicago area has been just plain nasty. I believe we hit a low of -19 last night. ACK! At any rate, it makes for a very good reason to stay in and play with paper! 😉
I have a very special niece who is about to have a baby any day now so I needed to get to making a card to go with the gift I already have. As I looked through my supplies I realized I have only one baby stamp set and it is really not my favorite. I believe I have had it for about 10 years. Though I really have been just getting into the stamping full force recently, I did try my hand at this hobby back in 2003 as well. I never did get into it then like I have now. Anyway, I still have a few sets from that time period and it is really funny how these stamps seem “outdated” now. Since I did not want my card to look outdated, I needed to get those creative juices flowing. I think I was able to do just that. Check it out:
The stamp with the baby toys on a string is from the old stamp set. T0 make it look a little more up to date, I used the tiny little banners from the Stampin’ up Show and Tell 2 Photopolymer stamp set. I think it turned out pretty cute! I also used the Stampin’ Up Label Love set and punch for the greeting. So I guess this goes to show, maybe I should keep those old stamp sets!!
