On kraft paper (by Maria)

Hello crafters, here are some more samples with the Sketchy Doodle Flowers stamp set.

This time, I have made you some samples on kraft paper.  Using Versafine black ink on your stamps, stamp the flowers on some kraft paper. My white cardstock is 30cms x 11cms. I folded it in two so that I had a card of 15cms x 11cms. I took some larger kraft paper stamped my flowers, and looked at how I could  take the best part of the card and cut it out 1cm less than my cardstock so, 14cms x 10cms. I coloured the flowers with pencils and the white part I coloured with my white gelly pen. I placed the sentiment on a free spot, put some golden pearls for the contrast, then I took some black cardstock to frame the kraft paper with. I put it all on my white card. I hope you like these cards, they were very easy to make, enjoy!



  1. Twee prachtige kaarten. Heel stoer ook.

  2. Hi Maria. I really like the simplicity of your two cards and the colours are lovely on the kraft card. Beautiful.

  4. Very pretty. Love the more subdued colors.

  5. A terrific idea & beautifully matted with the white & black for framing & to enhance the white & black components. I particularly like the second one with the way the Mackintosh dotted font echoes the dots in stamped images. I like the way you have shown two different ways of colouring - one with a halo of white & the other without.

  6. I never think to use my Kraft paper. Your cards are gorgeous on it. Love the black matting. Thanks for the inspiration.

  7. What a lovely idea to use kraft paper Maria and the off the edge look works beautifully. I love the colours you have used for the flowers and the pearls are a good complementary colour. x

  8. Totally stunning, I must give this style of card a go.

  9. Zo mooi! Met die rustige achtergrond komen ze helemaal tot hun recht!
