Old, new and blue - Birthday card with Little One


Over the past few years and even before I became a demonstrator I noticed I was ending up with a LOT of unused crafty stuff. Things I had decided that were too precious to use and so just sat looking pretty and gathering dust! Who else has this difficulty? I'm sure I am not the only one! Then with all the pretty new items in the catalogues and in shops you somehow forget about the pretty items you loved! Sometimes I have to remind myself to use these items and bring the love I originally felt for them back! So I've combined the new stamp set with some old items from previous catalogue to try and inspire you to use some of your collection of stash! Today I am sharing with you one of the most adorable stamps in the whole catalogue. It is such a cute little set and I personally think at less than £20 for the wood mount set it's also a bargain!

The set is called Little one and includes a sweet tepee ready to be coloured in. I love that this stamp set is not gender specific so can be used for all baby and child cards. I am looking forward to branching out in the future with this stamp set and not just using it for baby cards! Maybe a camping scrapbook page?

I had a need for a last minute birthday card for a first birthday party. I was so excited to use this set and I think the card worked out really well. I focused on coordination and used Pool Party ink for the colouring, stamping and matting. Having these coordinated items means bringing a card together is really quick when you need it to be!

I had some left over retired paper from a while ago called sweet lil' thing. I love that even though this paper is no longer for sale I know that I can use it because all the colours just match perfectly!

Can we also take a moment to appreciate the stitched framelits? I think they take cards to the next level and look so professional while being super simple! I have loved the alphabet and number stamps and dies since they came out and I think they work really well with the stitched framelits.

For this card I coloured in this little tepee using the Stampin' write markers but It can also be coloured in using the watercolour pencils or using ink and aqua painters or blender pens. As you can see I am not the greatest at colouring in the lines, but I think that adds to the love when giving the card! As you will know I am not the most artistic of people but I love that I can still be creative and achieve amazing results with the tools available to me from Stampin' up!

Thanks for joining me today and taking a look at my newest creation! I hope it has inspired you to take out some of your old stash and mix it with some of your newest product!
