I am so excited to be a featured artist for this blog! CutCardstock.com is my favorite online resource for all things Krafty – get it ?  Krafty – as in Kraft paper…   I really like the Brown Bag line of products they carry.  Not only do they have the #65 Cover weight, which makes great card bases or scrapbook layout bases, but they also have 70# Text weight papers.  These text weight papers are handtinted and very cool.

When I opened the Brown Bag Assortment pack, I was thrilled with the variety of beautiful, rich colors available!  For my card, I used the Brown Bag #70 text in Blueberry, Mushroom, Olive and Pepper.  I also used the Kraft 65# cover for my card base. 

I couldn’t resist making my own stripes using strips of varying widths (1/8″, 1/4″, 1/2″ ).  The stamps are Close to My Heart, and the inks are Close to My Heart Olive and Indian Corn Blue.  I used a 1/4″ circle punch on some scrap Kraft cover to make the dots on the upper left, and I used 1″ and 1 1/4″ circle punches to create the circles on the right. Perfect for the graduate! 

Check out all the brown bag products – they are 10% off this month!

Happy Stamping!
