Let’s Get Krafty

Beauty of the Season, Stampin' Up!This is another card option for the card buffet Saturday, October 4.  It’s World Cardmaking Day – so we’re celebrating by, well, making cards.

I had intended this to be a Christmas option, but Mike said, “I like that; it looks like fall.”  I love that the cards are so versatile!  It can even be a “cheer up; it will get better” card, because I always think that looks like a seriously ticked off bird.

This image is from the Beauty of the Season stamp set.  I bought it because cardinals are Virginia’s state bird, but I think several other states claim it, too.  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight blendabilities.  I wanted some sky, so I used an aqua painter and Marina Mist and Soft Sky ink to fill in the background.

I’m loving the Kraft card stock – as well as the Under the Tree specialty designer series paper.  The designer series paper has a color print on one side and white-on-kraft on the other.  I almost used the reverse side, but then I realized there wasn’t another green to tie it in.  But how fun is Cherry Cobbler with Kraft?  It reminds me of a richer version of the old “Creamy Caramel/Ruby Red” combo.  (Anyone else remember those colors?)

This is probably going to be a Christmas card for me, but at the buffet, I’ll have a sentiment table, so all the cards can be whatever you want them to be.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!
