Hey all!! How are ya? Hope you are having an AWESOME weekend!! I was hanging out over at the STAMPIN' SISTERHOOD blog and thought I would stop by and SHARE here too!! I don't know if you know this, BUT, I have a LOVE for Kraft cardstock!! So, when I found a PRE-MADE card and envies set at ACMoore? I had to get it!! Imagine......50 cards and envies!! How could you go wrong? Well, I have been using them like CRAZY!! So much so? I have been trying my hand at "Copic'ing" them!! Haha!! How d'ya like that one? Huh? "Copic'ing"? LOVE it!! As I said over at the Sisterhood? That one is going to STICK, I tell ya!!
Anyway, I decided I wanted to continue my QUEST of the Clean and Simple thing! And? Here it is.........................

Whatcha' think? Cool, huh? I am SO psyched with how it came out! I MAY have to try some DIFF versions of this! You know.....maybe even a set? Perhaps?? Alright, here is the SCOOP on my Krafty Kreation!! I stamped some flowers from the Rubbernecker WILD FLOWER SET SKU 465 with Tuxedo Memento Ink, onto a pre-made Kraft card, and colored them in with my Copics. Then I cut it out with my Spellbinders Ovals and distressed the sides with some Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Once that was done, I used my Spellbinders Labels 6 to cut out a MISC piece of patterned paper (sorry it was a scrap and I don't know the name). I distressed that with the same Walnut Distress Ink. I then took ANOTHER pre-made Kraft card and, AGAIN, distressed it with SAID ink! Haha!! After the Kraft card base was distressed, I added my sentiment from the SAME WILD FLOWER stamp set! Once everything was ready, I combined it all and added some of my FAVE twine! You guessed it, my Mandarin twine was distressed as well!! Only difference was that I distressed it with not only Walnut Stain, BUT, Old Paper and Spiced Marmalade too! Those inks are also TH Distress Inks! I HAD to distress the twine, for it did NOT quite match! AND................we all know how I am about the "matchy-matchy" thing!
I am REALLY glad you stopped by for a visit tonight!! AND.............SO happy I could share with you all!! Hope you have a WONDERFUL rest of your weekend!! Be sure to stop on over at the STAMPIN' SISTERHOOD tomorrow for their NEXT challenge!! You will DEF want to play along! Hey...........a chance at some FREE stamps is a BEAUTIFUL thing!! RIGHT? Of course!! Until next time.................ENJOY LIFE!!
