Stamping on Kraft Cardstock

Hello friends!

Hope you are having a fine day so far.
I want to share my stamped project this is lovely stamp called Garden Gem.

With the Distress Oxide, it is easy to stamp on kraft card stock.
The great thing about using Oxide is that they blend and mix so nicely with similar tones /colors. 

Best wishes to you

I stamped each image numerous times to ensure the colors will be prominent and bright.

Once I am happy with the inking, I took out the Embossing Buddy and clear-emboss part of images.
With Embossing Ink like this ( Scrapbook.com) or this you can easily emboss and add gloss and shine.

This is a good chance to use the chunkier, grainy type of clear, textured sparkle Embossing Powder, such as this.   Hope this post prompts you to create something colorful with kraft card stock.

By the way, I did bite the bullet and ordered all the Distress Oxide and Alcohol Lift Ink.
I can't wait to try them out this Fall.

Thank you for stopping by!

Love you card! I really like the touches of the glittery embossing you did in the flower centers and the leaves. The flower centers of the Penny Black stamp are absolutely perfect for that!

Believe I saw this beauty in Copenhagen. Not me the card...you refused to adopt me and take me with you. Still love the soft colors on the card, though.
