Time for a little Kraft



I have two cards for you today, both featuring Kraft paper and embossing paste. I so love using stencils and embossing paste.  I am entering these two cards into 3 challenges - both cards into the Simon Says Stamp Flickr group challenge #5 Embossing.  That challenge is open until Thursday, 9:00am EST November 13, 2014.

I am also entering each card into a separate challenge.

My first card is for the challenge  Muse - 93, it has been a while since I have been able to play.  I love inverting the colors on the Muse challenge, and this time I did much the same. The inspiration card is provided by Muse Therese Calvird. I love her clean lines.


 I used white embossing paste on a Simon Says Stamp Stencil from the Four Trees Stencil set # SSST121363. I added 3 sequins across the bottom added a Happy Holidays sentiment from the Simon set called Holly Berries, then added a hand-drawn white frame. I then matted it on three sides to the card base.







My second was made for the Card Concept Challenge.   This challenge is called A Krafty Christmas.  The challenge is open until Monday, November 24th at Noon (PST).

On this card I used the ever popular Falling Snow stencil from Simon Says Stamp, another of the Trees from the Four Trees stencil set and the Merry Christmas die.

I used embossing paste, glitter and stickles to create the tree on a hand cut tag.  I added white dashed lines to the tag. The sentiment die cut was added to the snowy panel and then the tag. All was placed on a white card base.  I am calling it clean and layered in styling.
