New Baby

Hello All :) Sammylou here and today I would like to share with you a card I made for a new Baby Girl using the fabulous word digi available over at Funky Hand.

Now, I will share a secret and tell you that I absolutely adore stamps and digi stamps especially, I just love their versatility. Unfortunately my talent for colouring them does not reflect my enthusiasm...

Lucky for me then that the word digi's are just perfect for paper piecing and as they are digital, you can size them to fit any card! Taking some inspiration from Kathy's scraplings, I have now taken to keeping my offcuts and used the scrapling to create an over-the-edge card:

Using the pink polkadots from the wonderfully versatile Rainbow Polkadots download, I pasted the negative and positive papers into word and popped the digi's over. The great thing is you get two cards from one sheet of A4! I then cut out some alphas from the Just for Jen download, added a bit of ribbon and bling from my stash and the card was complete.

Despite a tiny bit of cutting out, this card was incredibly simple to put together but I think the overall effect is rather striking. It's fun, modern and a little quirky. When you have a baby you receive a lot of cards so it's nice to know that you've made a unique card to celebrate the birth of a unique child!

So, have you been and checked out the new digi's available? If not, head on over: they are so much fun to play with!

And, as always we would love to see what you create, so pop your link under this post or head on over to the Facebook page and share your cards with us there. We truly do love to see what you create.

See you all soon, Sammylou xxx


  1. This is a really fab card Sammylou. I know just what you mean about loving digital stamps but not really having the ability for colouring that well! Paper piecing has been my saviour on many occasions.
