Simply Step Away From the Kraft

It's time to Stamp Simply! This challenge is super fun and so Simple. ;) Sorry...couldn't resist. This week we need to create a card with a leaf image but you also have to sponge as well. You can get all of the deets overe at Sharon's fantabulous blog while you are checking out her amazing sample.



Get the kraft out! ;)



Seriously! I realized as I was snapping a shot of this weeks card that I have been OD'ing on the stuff lately! EPLS...CAS (clean & simple)....and kraft. Lately I am just loving it and just can't seem to pull myself away! I think I need a mini challenge for myself. You know, to create something bright and a wee bit wild! ;) I will work on that this weekend. lol.



Ok...back to this FUN challenge! Here's what I came up with.....

LOVE this leaf! This is from Unity Stamp Co. I used a sentiment from PTI. Uh, yeah....just used this one. It was still sitting on my acrylic block and looked perfect for this one. I sponged the leaf first with ink then covered it with a little glossy accents. It needed to shine a bit. Added a few holes and a bit of stitching...easy.

Be sure and check out the rest of the team....

You colored your whimsical tree image so beautifully, Jennifer! It's absolutely POP-A-LICIOUS against the kraft, and I love the gingham ribbon at the top. Stunning!

Jenny Gropp said...

The kraft is FAB. I love the way you use it -- I must remember to use it more! Wonderful card -- great details - and the kraft is also very "fall" feeling!

Tammy Hershberger said...

Fabulous EPLS design, Jen and I LOVE the Kraft cardstock! Everyone should just embrace the Kraft! ;)

Sharon said...

I agree with all of the above! CAS is my fav style. Anyone can make a go-jus card without all the extras. Keep stampin, Sharon D. NJ

Oh my word!!! You are a creative genius! That stitching is the perfect accent for this card! I might have to CASE you, if you don't mind. Of course, I will give credit!

It's so perfect! Love those white stitches as an accent, and the kraft works wonderfully with the image and design.
