Kraft Postage

The creative ladies over @ Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge have a wonderful sketch this week.  You are free to flip, rotate, or mirror the sketch.  What I found funny interesting, is that at least three of us used the same stamp set, just differently!  We aren't promoting you to purchase this stamp set, or doing a feature on this stamp set.  Think of it, as more options, if you ever considered purchasing it.  :)
Here is the sketch:

And here is what I created:

The card base is made of crumb cake (kraft) cardstock.  The main panel is very vanilla cs.  I stamped the collage stamp in crumb cake classic ink on the bottom 2/3 of the vanilla panel.  I used the postage stamp punch to cut the first edition dsp.  I cut 1" x 1" square very vanilla cs and stamped various objects and text using crumb cake and early espresso classic inks.  I made my own little collages, to keep with the theme of the larger stamp.  I crinkled some very vanilla seam binding and tied it around the top third of the card.  I tied a clear vintage faceted button onto the seam binding knot with some twine.  
Here is a close-up of the vintage faceted button & tiny tag:

Hope you get a chance to play along with us @ Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge.  We'd love to see what you create with this fabulous sketch!

Wow, what a great idea. I love the post stamps. And I' looking forward to getting this stamp. But have to wait until Oct. for the catalogue in Germany.
