Sweet Stamps- Kraft Paper

The challenge at Sweet Stamps for this week is to use Kraft paper.
 I had a fun Fall-colorful time making this card. I used Fall colors and daubered on color using Sweet Stamps Spots- Valentine, Peapod and ...........  through the Sweet Stamps stencil called Stained Glass. I highlighted around the edges of the card using French Roast (spot).
 The leaves were cut using a Cheery Lynn die. They have great detail- you can see the veins in te leaves.
 The image is stamped using Black Tuxedo Memento ink and colored using Copics. I used the 'Out of the Box' technique to cut the image using a die- as you see.
 Our trees are already beginning to change colors and are falling from the trees. The weather is cool and the heat is on in the house.

Products I used from the Sweet Stamps Store:



We have a weekly challenge and a monthly technique challenge. The monthly challenge 9/15-10/14 is Chalkboard stamping. Our winners are chosen by and if you use a Sweet Stamps image, your entry will count x's 2!
