Kraft Cardstock & Color Coach

Hi stampers!  Ok, I know it's a K and three C's but that's a lot of alliteration :-)  But I wanted to tell you about one of my new favorite items in the new catalog!  The 12 x 12 kraft cardstock!  It's seriously awesome!  You get 12 sheets for $5.95 (item #133674) so that can go a long way!  



It's a bit darker than our crumb cake cardstock, it's a bit more fibrous looking, and a bit heavier.  As the picture from SU shows, it would make great die cuts.  It would also be great for gift packaging and 3D items and I'm having fun stamping on it!  It stamps really well!  You can see that here in this card where I stamped on it with crumb cake and island indigo!


Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Kinda eclectic
Paper:  Whisper white, Crumb cake, island indigo, kraft card stock
Ink:  Island indigo, hello honey, tangelo twist
Accessories:  Natural ribbon (retired, whoops), linen thread, very vintage designer buttons, basic rhinestones, elegant and bitty butterfly punches

I'm also loving the kinda eclectic stamp set!  I tried to resist it but saw it was a convention set so I knew I'd be seeing fabulous stuff with it so I better get it so I wasn't UBER sad when convention rolled around :-)

And one more thing....this color combo....I would have never tried it had it not been on the color coach card!  It's totally not a "me" combo but I LOVE it!  The cards always have fresh and fun combos so make sure to grab them if you haven't already!

Happy stamping!

  1. I keep seeing amazing things with it, but I've resisted ordering it since I know I'll get it next week... it's like Gorgeous Grunge. Didn't know I needed it looking at the catalog, but wow, super versatile!
