Addicted to Stamps and More #56

Its Wednesday again and that means it is time for new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. This week it is our 'Anything Goes' week.  This is always a very popular challenge and I am excited to see what you will create this week.

I went to Pinterest for some inspiration and this card be Debby Hughes provided this for me and here is my case:

I love cream and kraft together and decided to keep it as CAS as possible by just embossing the kraft card and adding a simple sentiment. I found this adorable twine bag in my stash and loved how it looked on the kraft base. I just added a little paper flower and gem for some interest and a pop of colour. 

Our Top Addict this week will get to choose a bundle of goodies from our fabulous sponsor MelonHeadz Illustrations.

I am also going to enter this into the 'kraft and twine' challenge at CAS on Sunday and the 'kraft it' challenge at Allsorts

Now it is your turn to play along and for added inspiration, check out our blog here to see the wonderful projects are DT have made this week.

Most of all have fun x


  1. Hi Sandie. LOVE this card. Such great texture from the embossing ... and from that adorable burlap bag. Super cute with the sweet little orange flower for decoration. Loll xx

  2. soooo cuuute! love that little bag :)

  3. I really, REALLY like this one, Sandie, such a fabulous clean design! The little textured bag looks fantastic against the embossed background of kraft, and the cream paper makes a nice frame. And you picked the perfect spot for the sentiment too!

  4. Beautiful, I love kraft, it's one of my favorite things and so clever to use it for CAS design and not only for vintage-stuff. Thank you for your support with my CAS card with the chandelier, I'm also happy with it although the proportions are not perfect... But I'm learning! :) I really like the placement of your sentiment and the size of it for the card.

  5. This is fab! I love everything about it. The colours, the sentiment and most of all that dinky little bad. How adorable is that! Love it...did i say i LOOOOVE it?!

  6. Oh nice job Sandie. I love how the embossing looks like part of another handbag. Terrific subtle color combo.

  7. Hi Sandie. Great CAS card. Love the little bag and the simplicity of your colour scheme. Hugs Monika xxx

  8. Great color scheme - I hope you'll link up at 52 Card Pickup again this week!

  9. Super CAS card Sandie. Love the little burlap bag.
    Hugs, Flo xx
