Kraft Challenge.....

So... when I first started blog following, I noticed that so many people were using Kraft card stock .... so many beautiful designs ... I saw stamping (in white... sigh,) I saw digital images printed directly on the card stock on and sometimes adhered. I saw copic coloured delights ..... Oh how I wanted to have some Kraft card stock, so pretty, so versatile ..... ..
I found the right pure white ink ... I got the stamps, images and backgrounds ... I collected the digital papers and all number of elements as well as buying lovely DP .... but I couldn't get the Kraft card stock... I tried everywhere ... even bought from the internet what was claimed to be Kraft ... but it wasn't what I wanted.... many months (maybe even years) went by when I finally found a Stampin Up demonstrator who was about to get Kraft CS .... Eventually I did get it ... quite a bit of it in fact ... but my interest had by then moved on, my inspiration and my desire had moved to Chipboard, ribbons, buttons, and so on ... So my Kraft card stock remained unopened ... waiting ... until last night ......


I came across Cas - Tastic Wednesday challenge ... a challenge to use Kraft CS .... it was ordained ... finally my pack was opened. Hmmm.... now what? 'Keep it simple' I thought ... just try a idea with some digital and some scraps as a first attempt ....



And I am hooked! ..... So hooked I am going to use this for the Caardvarks Challenge (Happy Birthday to 'My Favorite Things') ... 
Digital text by Vinnie Pearce bought Here ... how I love Vinnie Pearce goodies ... Papers from Papermania Rose Garden ...






Love that 3D butterfly punch......

Ribbon, pin and sentiment all from my stash .... 
I need to do some more with this Kraft.......

Till soon dear friends

So beautiful, so elegant. So glad that you played with kraft! Curious, what do you think was the perfect white ink? I'm still on a quest to find some...

I am addicted to PTI cardstock. I haven't found anything that compares to it. It is very thick and makes for a great card.
I love the pink and sweet butterflies. :)
