Four Panel Card (by Nikki K)

Today we have a post from our Guest Design Team member Nikki. She is giving a sneak peek of the new stamps and designer papers that we brought on the recent TV shows on Hochanda. The Design Team will be sharing their projects with you next month.

Hi all,

it's great to be back for my second stint as Guest Designer on the blog for Chocolate Baroque this year. I've been doing some samples over the year too, and wanted to share some with you.

Today I have a card I made for the TV show last week.

I have created a four panel card, using the fab new papers that Lesley had on the show. I absolutely love the inky background look!

I added to the background with second generation stamping in co-ordinating colour inks, using the tag 'holes' from the new Tagtastic stamp, and also stamped the distressed harlequin stamp from a previous show, in grey ink to add detail.

I cut the background paper into four equal parts, putting it neatlyback together and then stamping and heat embossing Movie Strip Collage, first in white one way round, and then in black, turning the image so the white underneath showed as background detail.

I added a spattering of white paint, and roughed up the edges of the pieces of card with scissors. It was then mounted on black card, leaving a gap between the four pieces, just enough to make a feature, but so you can still see the image clearly.

Having the background papers made this a really quick and simple make, but it's still as striking as if I'd painted the background myself.

Hope you like it, don't forget to check out my team mates' other makes on the blog. x

Best Wishes,

Nikki K.



  1. Gorgeous. This stamp and the papers are on my wish list.

  2. WOW!! absolutely stunning work, gorgeous stamping and colours and a fabulous design, Kate x

  3. This is such a pretty stamp and the background paper shows if off beautifully Nikki, especially as you have added some of the little stamps from the tag and some bits of harlequin, great in second generation stamping, and love the spattering too, and the tile idea on black card really works. x

  4. Fabulous, loving the design and wonderful background.
