Inkspirational : Designers choice .Use kraft

Hello lovely ladies

It’s been a year and a half since my last post can’t believe how time has flown. So many things have happened,  some amazing some no so good but one thing that has been a constant is my love for crafting even if I didn’t share anything I made !

Today I’m going to rectify that and join a challenge,  a challenge that I have followed but never actually taken part in.


Inkspirational are asking us to use kraft on our creations so here goes….



Unfortunately my camera doesnt want to cooperate its been feeling very neglected so after hours of photo taking this is the best I could get.

I used a Tim Holtz media die and cut one in Kraft and one in white card Using a blending tool and archival ink I dabbed away at the white card and then offset the kraft panel slightly so I could just see a tad of colour. The sentiment was printed and then cut with my Cameo.

A simple card but I love how it looks in real life shame about the photos though.

I also want to play along with Happy Little Stampers who are asking us to play along with their challenge Anything goes with dies.

Do pop over to Inkspirational and HLS both of the DT’s have created some spectacular cards

Take care
