Addicted to Stamps and More #45

Happy Wednesday Stamping friends,

This week at Addicted to Stamps and More with have this gorgeous photo to inspire you to create:

Isn't this such a lovely Summer photo that is bursting with so many features that could inspire you. The window, the window box, the flowers, the chairs, the colours......and so much more!
I was immediately drawn to the  light coloured wood panel walls and took my inspiration from this to make my card:

I wanted the focus of this card to be on the texture created by the wood grain embossing plate, so kept the card as CAS as possible. I have heat embossed the sentiment in vanilla to match the card stock.

I am pleased with how this card turned out and love that it was inspired by such a wonderful photo. I am really looking forward to seeing what this photo inspires you to create and will be dropping in to your blogs to have a look. Before you get stamping take a look at what our fab DT have created this week here
And don't forget that this week Whoopsi Daisy are sponsoring us and you could have the chance to win 2 sheets of digi images!

I am entering this into the 'CAS' challenge at Movin' Along with the times and 'just add woodgrain' at a new blog I have just joined Just Add Ink
Have fun!


  1. Beautiful texture, Sandie and I love that vanilla embossing! xx

  2. Hi Sandie. I love your wood-textured background. The black strip with sentiment really pops off the card. Loll xx

  3. That's a wonderful background! Such a beautiful CAS card, I haven't done so much CAS lately but now I start to feel like making some again... It's funny how it differs from time to time what you want to create -I've had my sort of vintagy mode on for weeks now! :) xx

  4. You know how much I love this card...amazing take on the inspiration photo. The soft wood texture and the crisp embossing on the black is fabulous.

  5. Beautiful! LOVE the woodgrain - the card doesn't need anything else. Perfect as it is. CAS Queen!

  6. Wow the woodgrain certainly takes the center stage here!!
