Default January 2019 MISTI Monday Challenge

Challenge Title: Krazy for Kraft & Black
Hostess: MISTI Monday
Keyword: MSP17
Date: January 7th, 2019


Yes, that date says 2019! I hope you all had wonderful holidays and New Year! Thanks again for joining us here on Splitcoaststampers. We appreciate your time and talents you share with us every month.

This month, I'm worn out from making so many cards from October through December. Unfortunately, as in every past year, I run out of time and end up not sending Christmas cards to everyone on my list. I always end up making Happy New Year Cards in January to send out to those I missed or to those that sent me cards that I hadn't anticipated.

In January, I look for simple cards to mass produce. My Christmas cards are pretty detailed and now is the time to relax a bit and get some simple yet pretty cards made.

For this year's card, I thought I would go with a card anchored by Kraft paper. I've been seeing so many cards made with Kraft paper and black ink. Simple. Trendy. Elegant. Easy. So for this challenge, I took a Christmas set I bought after Christmas to turn into a New Year's card.

Here it is:



Stamp Set (trees): Gina K Designs Christmas Greenery
Stamp Set (geese): Kitchen Sink Stamps Limited Edition set for JunkieFest 2018
Stamp Set (Sentiment and die) Papertrey Ink Uncorked
Black Ink: Gina K Designs Amalgam Black ink
Paper: Gina K Designs Kraft
Stamping Tool: MISTI Original size. I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment on my die strip and in conjunction with my Creative Corners for stamping my trees over the edge on the base card.

This card took no time at all, good for men or women recipients and is trending right now in our industry.


Your challenge for this month is to create a card or project using Kraft and black colors only. You can use them however you want. Black paper or ink. Kraft paper or Black paper. You do not have to do a New Year card. It may be any occasion.

Good Luck and thank you for joining us again! I hope you can participate this month!

Hmmm...those trees are really black? They look green to me...I will need to figure out something for this challenge. It seems simple but oh dear...

Kraft is brown correct? Or is kraft cream?

I'll have to go looking for those answers!

Yep, very black. Sorry about the picture looking green. Not sure why....looks black here. I describe Kraft paper as a brown paper bag color paper. Hope that helps! Thank you!
