Stamp Simply #108



I'm so lucky to be part of Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply challenge team as October Guest Designer, and here's my creation for this week's challenge:
Krafty Black -- Today's challenge is in honor of all those who LOVE Kraft paper. The added element is that we MUST use black paper as well -- anything else goes, as long as you have both Kraft and Black paper in your creation. And, if you don't own Kraft paper, do your best to use whatever you have that is as close as possible. As always, we're an easy bunch. We just want you to play and have some fun with us!
There you have it, a fun and pretty easy challenge (for a kraft and black lover like me, anyway)! My creation is one of these fun little totes made with SU!'s Top Note die and a mini paper bag. Here is my original source for these fun little bags: akjuda on SCS.

Just a little background on the monogram - KBA: it stands for King Bee Apiary which is owned and operated by a wonderful friend and co-worker of mine. She and her hubby have started a little honey bizness (get it?!), selling hand made soaps and honey. I can tell you from personal experience how wonderful both products are! Anyway, I just had to have this set from The Rummage Bin, Sweet Bee, and thought it would make a great little monogram for my friend's bizness with the king's crown hanging on that big ol' B. The K and A are from PTI's Fresh Alpha, so clean, so crisp!



Just for a bit of added regal-ness, I ran the kraft card stock through my Big Shot with the argyle embossing plate from SU!. I think I'd probably die cut the kraft layer first, and then emboss secondly, because it lost a bit of it's embossing the second time I ran it through with the Top Note die. I know, some of you are probably thinking, yah-duh, didn't you think of that first? I have to tell you that sometimes when I get an idea, I just run with it, impulsively at times, and don't "think" of all those things...kwim?!

Have a fantastic Thursday night/Friday all, and please play along with this "krafty" challenge, using keyword: SSNOTIME108 at SCS and/or linking your creation over at Sharon's blog. Be sure to check out the rest of the SS sisters by clicking on their names below.
