Stamp & Show challenge – embracing the old

This week we’re focusing on “Old” over at Simon Says Stamp and show – and you could take that so very many directions! I encourage you to head over to visit Simon Says Stamp & Show to see all of the other creations and to enter. This week’s prize (as always) is a $50 voucher to Simon Says Stamp! The winner is randomly drawn – you can enter by posting to your blog, flickr, or other site too. See the blog for entry details and rules. I decided to blend my new and old…

My card was actually a combination of a few projects – part of an abandoned tag that hadn’t worked combined with a card that needed some cover-up on a yucky mistake. I *love* the result of the two partial projects combined, almost as much as I love how old Jenni Bowlin products work amazing with the new stuff! You can see I’ve stamped. edged (red ink and paint), and I even took some plain alphabet stickers and added red paint + glossy accents to make them perfectly match my card!

I will definitely be pulling this old foam stamp out more often – as well as using more book paper in my crafting. I do so love the look of it! I hope you’ve enjoyed my card and been inspired to join us – you can interpret the challenge in any way you like and join us in crafting in the new year – with something old!
