Old Stamps ~ New Inspiration

I have been organizing my stamps using some of the stamp storage that Jennifer McGuire has shown on her blog. As I am doing this, I am pulling out stamps that I have had since I first started making cards in 2006. Yes, I am a hoarder and do not usually let go of many things. I figure I will use it again later.

I have been wanting to order many of the new stamps out by Simon Says Stamp, Avery Elle, Hero Arts - just to name a few. My budget does not allow it right now so when I "rediscovered" these stamps, I decided to use my older stamps and apply new techniques!

Here is a birthday card for our daughter that I used one of my precious Hero Arts stamps. So this time around I used a flower die from PaperTrey Ink instead of coloring in the flower that is on the stamp and the hello die from Simon Says Stamp. I was not using dies back in 2006 :-)

Have a blessed day!

"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is -- his good, pleasing and perfect will."
Romans 12:2


  1. Love it, Pam - it is like getting something new when we pull out something we haven't used in awhile! And HA stamps are timeless, aren't they? Love how you updated this!

  2. So pretty, Pam! I love my "old" stamps, too.

  3. I absolutely love how you've updated this oldie but goodie Pam! I've been reorganizing my craft room too and have started using some neglected stamps- I rarely purge my stamps either:).
