Addicted to Stamps and More

Hello Everyone and I hope your day is going well so far. I decided to get up early and try to make something for a few challenges as I seem to have been doing knitting and sewing and forgetting to make anything else.

At Addicted to Stamps and More this week there is a beautiful photograph to use as inspiration for a challenge piece.


I don't know who makes the two backing cards I used as I bought a big bag of stuff on the car boot sale and the card was in that.

I made this card and used all sorts of different stamps.

The flowers and the little butterfly are Crafty Individuals from their C1-293 set.

The 'Live life' sentiment is one from a free set that was exclusive to Homemade magazine.

The little bees are Joanna Sheen--I use that set all the time at the moment-Back to Nature

The Larger Butterfly is Personal Impressions-'Fluttering by' set and last is the Happy Birthday stamp from Hobby Art.

This has made me realise that I have lots of stamps all of them need a good sort out--any volunteers!

Love Chrissie xx

  12. Chrissie, your card is so pretty! I like all the stamps you used, as I really like butterflies and bees, and the coloring is perfect. I like the frame, too. A birthday card worth displaying as art.

    Enjoy a wonderful day,
