Our Creative Corner Guest DT


I'm so excited to be a Guest Designer for Our Creative Corner today!  What a huge honor.  Back in May I was awarded the Top Talent honor for this challenge and a future guest DT spot.  Here is the current challenge:

DT Call Week - Your Style.
Create a project that best showcases your own personal crafting style!

How fun and simple is that?  Be sure to enter for a chance to be part of an incredibly talented DT.

I went with my go-to style:  CAS.




Aahhh ... Kraft on Kraft.  I just love that look.  The morning glories are from Papertrey's Year of Flowers Collection.  I colored them with prismacolor pencils and baby oil.  The sentiment is from Damask Designs.  It's difficult to see in the photo, but the Top Note die cut was embossed using the linen / canvas impression plate from PTI.

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you play along at Our Creative Corner!




All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated

Stamps:  Year of Flowers Collection, Damask Designs
Paper:  Kraft
Ink:  Black (memento)
Other:  Mat Stack 4 die, blueberry sky grosgrain ribbon, canvas/linen impression plate, rhinestones (Kasier), black brads (making memories), Top Note die (SU!), corner rounder, prismacolor pencils, baby oil

Sara, this is a true clean and simple look and I love it! And I recognize a perfectionist's eye. Your ribbon is perfectly done as well as your straight sentiment and brads. Lovely card! I've become a fan!

BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the kraft on kraft and oddly enough we were looking at house exteriors yesterday and I picked this blue and a kraft kinda color as something I really liked!!!

Betty said...

LOVE it, the colors are so vibrant and what a great contrast on the kraft CS. I will have to case that idea.

Sara, I am soooo into this card! You probably noticed that I'm a CAS girl, so this is right up my alley! I love that you have such texture and dimension- even though most of the card is kraft. I'm also a fan of your pencil coloring! So glad to have you designing with us this past week at OCC!

Kristin said...

WOW this is so lovely! I love your CAS style, as I can't seem to pull it off.... The colors of the the flowers are fantastic against the kraft, great colors together! Loved having you with us this week at the OCC!
