Let’s start off this shiny new week with a “Keeping It Krafty” challenge from Outlines Rubber Stamps! Just like it sounds, use kraft cardstock as a main ingredient in your creation. Check out the Outlines Blog to find out how you can play along toward winning a $25 certificate from Outlines!
I took this challenge quite literally, and used only kraft plus white cardstocks, along with kraft-colored printed papers. The sentiment is Tiny Celebrate Your Day, and the blossom was created with Wavy Posy Lg., Wavy Posy Med., and Wavy Posy Sm. stamps. The posy images were heat embossed in black to add a nice contrast.
Embellishments include a flourish grungeboard, painted with crackle paint, then inked with Distress Ink that for a two-tone look. The pearl dots were simply created with a black Viva Decor Pearl Pen. (My opinion? Gotta love those pearl pens!)
Ready for even more ideas to put you in a creative mood? How about visiting my design team colleagues to see what they’ve had up- their ‘krafty’ sleeves? Jeanne Streiff, Jenny Gropp, Lisa Silver, Robin Kirkpatrick, Sandy Hulsart, & Vicki Garrett.
Remember to check out the Outlines Blog for the details on playing along with “Keeping It Krafty”! I happen to be a ‘challenge lover’ … and, if you’re a big fan of challenges too, perhaps you would enjoy the CT0611 Dirty Dozen challenge, and the QFTD65 challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. Today’s creation fits into both of those as well. 😉
Thanks so much for having shared a few moments of your day here! Have a delightful new week, everyone!
