Craft Your Kraft

Dear Ones~
Himself just brought the tree home from our storage - guess it's time to decorate for Christmas. Not quite yet, though. I need to finish my Christmas cards first.

This week in Make it Monday over at Papertrey Ink, Dawn showed us how to do some wonderful stamping on kraft paper. Kraft is one of my favorites. Watch Dawn's video HERE

Here is what I came up with:

This was such a fun technique!! I love the effect that comes from stamping on kraft with white first, and then stamping with the color. I also did some white spatters and I think they really stand out on the kraft color. The PTI Rosie Posie stamp set lends itself so well to this.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Kraft and White Card Stock
Papertrey Ink Rosie Posie Stamp Set
Hot Off the Press  Christmas Greeting
GKD Inks in:
*White Pigment
*Red Hot
*Cranberry Tart
*Evergreen, Stamped Off Once
Dylusions White Spray

This will be entered in:
PTI Make it Monday - Layered Stamping on Kraft
Simon Says - Anything Goes 
 So that's it for me right now. I adore your comments, thanks for stopping by!!!

  6. Beautiful. I guess I need to get some white ink, Love the flowers and the way you put the sentiment askew. White spatters adds that festive look. Hope your Thanksgiving is fabulous. As I sit here typing, my husband and son are busy in the kitchen making dinner, All I have to do is set the table and of course help with clean up. I am truly blessed. I am THANKFUL to have YOU for a friend.
