Twisted Thursday Challenge-Kraft Paper


Good Morning! It is going to be a crafty weekend for me. We had our monthly craft night last night and today I am going to an all day Crop/Cardmaking Day with a new group where I will be doing a Copic Demo. This is my entry for the S2G Twisted Thursday, and the twist was to use kraft paper or a paper bag. After pulling out my kraft paper I was looking for ribbon and other embellishments that would look good and found this ribbon and I pulled all the colors for my card from there. This image is from S2G and is called Baguettes's Accessories and was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. I think this image is just too cute, even though I am more of a cat person (and anyone that knows me personally knows how true that is!). The ribbon is from American Crafts, flowers are Prima and the brads are from the Paper Studio. 

I hope to get a lot done today at the crop. I have stamped a bunch of images and plan to spend most of my day coloring images for our Christmas cards. I have new stamps and new paper and can't wait to play with both. I took advantage of the sale on the S2G website so I have several new images from them. That was my first order, the other stamps were bought at Papertrix, and wow they have super fast shipping!! I love that about a company. Of course images available is a great selling point for me, but very close behind is service and fast shipping. I am impatient when I order stamps, I want them to just pop out of my computer or something and they were almost that fast. I will be ordering from them again. And again. I use Georgia Pacific most of the time for stamping and coloring on but I have heard so much about both Papertrey's paper and the Pure Luxury from Gina K. My paper from Gina K arrived yesterday and my friend Julie gave me a couple of sheets of the papertrey to try until I can place an order there. I am on the hunt for the perfect paper to color on, is you have suggestions, let me know.

You find the best stamps! I love S2G stamps and I think it might have been you that turned me on to them in the beginning..
Lots of cuteness since last i stopped by but I believe the S2G images are my favorites. I'm sorry (or am I?) that I missed the sale!

Hope you get lots accomplished at your crop - I go to one once a month and never get through what I'm hoping to...that's okay - I get to chat & hang out with the best stamping buddies :)

Love the colors on this card. The American Crafts ribbon is perfect. I typically use GP paper too for white cardstock & I'm happy with it. I've used some Gina K this weekend and man that stuff was thick!!! I do have colored cardstock from PTI & like it alot as well (it seems similar to Stampin' Up in my opinion)
