Color Challenge: Krafty Pomegranate


Can I tell you how much I *love* today's Color Challenge at SCS??? I just recently started using Kraft cardstock in my designs -- I honestly don't know what I was waiting for!! When I saw that today's challenge was to use Kraft, Purely Pomegranate, and Whisper White, I had to play! I also have to tell you that I think this is my favorite SU! stamp EVER. I think I've used it more than any single stamp from the new catalog. Anyway, enough of my gushing -- on to the card!

I stamped the image twice in white craft ink on the Kraft card base, then heat embossed with white detail EP. I used the same image on the panel, generation stamped in Purely Pomegranate. By "generation stamped", I mean that I stamped it once in the center, then stamped twice more without reinking. The sentiment was stamped in Purely Pomegranate and punched with the Round Tab Punch. I added hardware, pomegranate stitched grosgrain, and natural hemp twine, and the image panel was mounted on dimensionals. It's a fairly simple design, but I think it turned out well!!

It just hit me today that Thanksgiving is just a little more than a week away -- I think I'll be back tomorrow with a card to get you in the mood for turkey!! :) Have a great day!
