Stamps Only Sunday

Good Morning!  I hope your weekend is going well.  I just wanted to get this posted since it's nearly midnight Saturday night, I'm going to go to sleep and then wake up to a mountain of laundry to get through.  That's usually how my Sunday rolls.

Anyway, quick post - I made this card gaining inspiration from The Sweet Stop (sketch) and There She Goes (kraft, black & teal) challenges.  This was such a fun card to make.  Every element that I added to my card made me smile.  I hope you like it, too.

I don't often use Kraft card stock when I make cards and then when I do I always wonder to myself why I don't use it more often because it looks great and gives a wonderful earthy feel and it goes with everything!  I also chose lighter shades of teal. These papers came from a new mat stack that I treated myself to even though I shouldn't have.  It's DCWV Linen Closet and it is one GORGEOUS paper pack.  If you don't have this in your need it!!

Card stock:  Kraft, Whisper White (SU), Black (Recollections)
Paper:  DCWV Linen Closet mat stack
Stamps/Ink:  Bloom (TSG), Poppies & Greetings (SNSS), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Copics:  BG01, BG05, YG03, YG63, YG67
Tools:  Cricut/SCAL, SVG cut by Penny Duncan, 1", 1 1/4", 1 3/8" circle punches
Embellishments:  black satin ribbon (Offray)

I discovered that coloring with Copics on Whisper White card stock is really different from coloring on Neenah Classic Crest.  I think I prefer Neenah, but the colors still look beautiful.

Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing a bit of your Sunday with me.  Have a great rest of your day.
