Addicted To Stamps & More #320...

Hi! The new challenge is up at the Addicted To Stamps & More challenge blog. This week it is a beautiful collage.

I was very inspired by the bottom pic. I decided to go for a more sketchy look. Here is the card I created.

I took a top folding kraft card base and stamped the Gingham background stamp by Kaisercraft with Antique Linen distress oxide ink. I took a strip of watercolour paper and stamped one of the borders from the Lovely Borders 2 stamp set by Pinkfresh Studio. I coloured the images quickly with my Zigs. I trimmed the paper and adhered it to the card base with some foam tape. I stamped the sentiment on a dark brown paper with Versamark ink and heat embossed with vanilla EP. I trimmed the sentiment strip and mounted it with foam tape. To finish, I punched out two tiny flowers and adhered them to the sentiment strip after adding a small dot with a pink marker at the centre.

Here is a closer look.

Love how quickly this card came together and how charming it looks. I hope it inspires you to create something beautiful. You can check out the Addicted To Stamps & More blog for more inspiration and also link up your entries there.



  1. Pretty background for your gorgeous flowers! Great take on the photo!

  2. How sweet this card is Nadini. Such colourful flowers and a super background.

  3. What a lovely card Nandini! I love the country feel that the gingham gives and the sentiment strip really looks like ribbon.

  4. This is super pretty Nandini! I love it!

  5. Love the gingham background to your flower border Nandini. :)

  6. I love that gingham background, Nandini. You must have darker kraft paper than I do for the Antique Linen to show up so well. It does look wonderful with the darling little flower strip.

  7. What a great choice, kraft and tiny pretty flowers! Looks amazign. Lovely card, Nandini

  8. This is such a wonderful take on the photo Nandini, how clever to stamp the gingham pattern onto the kraft card before adding your beautifully whimsical flowers, I really love your card! Hugs, Gwendolyn
