Kraft Cardstock

I don't use a lot Kraft cardstock, but I think that's going to change! I played with some this weekend, and I really like the look of it. Oh, the possibilities!

The stamp used to create the background is the Solid Leaf Spray from The Rubber Café. I couldn't help but notice how strikingly similar it looked to the Making Memories self-adhesive fabric tape from their Fifth Avenue Collection. See for yourself!



Here's a close-up of the Shimmerzed flower. I added Angel Wings Shimmerz to all three layers of the flower. It's so pretty!

Supplies:
Stamp: Solid Leaf Spray (The Rubber Café)
Paper: Generic Kraft, Black & Vanilla Cardstock
Paint/Ink: Angel Wings Shimmerz (Shimmering Products); Tuxedo Black Memento Dye Ink (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Pearl Brads (K&Co.); Fabric Tape (Making Memories); Paper Flowers (Prima Marketing); Threading Water Border Punch (Fiskars)


If you happen to be nearby, the Re:Use Market has announced that its next Open House will take place on October 17 & 18. Check their Web site for more details. If you're able to go, take a bag along... you'll need it! :)

Happy Stamping!

For some reason I can't find your email address to respond to your comments on my blog. I figured someone would recognize that photo of the street signs. We see it when we leave Boise to drive home. Too funny!
