Something Old, Something New

So I decided to give the Verve 'Something Old, Something New' challenge a try this morning. I had an idea as to what I wanted to do in terms of what type of card but I honestly had NO idea what stamps I was going to use. I ended up selecting, 'Practically Perfect - 2009' and 'Family Phrases - 2007', the latter being a set I had never inked up before. I love doing photo cards, as I find it makes the card a little more personal. Several of the photo cards I have made for people in the past, are now displayed in baby books or on general display. I also tried to think outside the box when it came to colours. And to top it all off, I used scrap pieces of paper - I didn't get into a single sheet of new paper! This has been a goal of mine all summer! Instead of using pattern paper, I used the sentiment, 'Our little miracle' to form the background and then I used the 'daddy's little girl' stamp from the Family Phrases set to bring in a little pink. I like how it turned out, as it's not a girlie, girlie card but the pearls and pink do give it a little touch of 'girlie'. On the inside, I used some more scrap paper and inked in pink the girl bunny image from the Practically Perfect set, stamped it off once and then stamped it on the corner. I used the 'welcome baby' stamp from the Family Phrases set to finish off the inside.


  1. Oh, this is just so sweet! Love that little band of daddy's little girl sentiments! Adorable card!

  2. How precious!! Love how you added the sweet bunny on the inside also!
