Sally Sells Seashells by the Seashore


I never liked Kraft cs, wouldn't use it and really couldn’t understand all of the fuss about it. I decided to play with it and NOW I get it!

For these cards I paired Kraft with PTI Enchanted Evening – I really, really love the PTI card stock – the colors are beautiful and it’s nice and sturdy without being too thick. I am so glad I found PTI!

These cards are the same, but different. The one on the left I added some Pearl Acrylic Paint for a touch of shimmer and that white washed look. The one on the right has no added touches.

I really like the beachy feel of the kraft, blue and brown ink.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!


Stamps: SU Seaside, PTI Paper Tray, PTI Scattered Showers

CS and DP: SU Kraft, PTI Enchanted Evening, SU Very Vanilla

Inks, markers and coloring tools: StazOn Timber Brown

Extra goodies: Nesties, Pearl Acrylic Paint, Corner Rounder
