Red, White & Blue Challenge #230

Because there are 5 weeks in June we have a bonus this week in a Color Challenge #230 - Red, White & Blue! 


Take a look at what the Design Team has done with these colors and join the challenge.  The Kraft Journal family wants to wish you a happy and safe 4th of July.


Marsha Drain 
Over the past 4 years, Marsha has enjoyed making patriotic Thank You cards for our Service men and women.  For this card she embossed a piece of Light Kraft cardstock then added two red and one blue stars that she cut out with a metal die.  You know how she loves the hemp cord! - she used two strand of the blue from the Dark Jewel Hemp Cord and one strand from the Natural Hemp Cord.   The red, white, and blue stripes in the Airmail Washi tape were perfect for making borders above and below the sentiment.  For more details about her card, please visit her blog, Gramma's Room


Karen Letchworth
Red, White and Blue are three colors that Karen Letchworth LOVES because they represent the country she loves so much.  Karen chose to create a fun card for this color challenge.  She started with a Light Brown Kraft Note Card as her base, and topped that with a coordinating piece of Light Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock and some patterned papers.  She cut a star into one of the papers and added some sequins.  She added a stamped sentiment to a piece of Light Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock and finished her card by tying several lengths of Black Baker's Twine around it, and into a bow.  Karen really hopes that you will play along in this week's Color Challenge, and that you'll also stop by her blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to say hello.  God bless the USA!

Tammy Hobbs
For this week's color challenge, Tammy started with a Brown Kraft Cardstock base onto which she added a piece of patterned paper where the edges were distressed.  She added an Event Record from the Ephemera Pack followed by taking a length of Earthy Hemp Cord and twisted it randomly on the card front.  Die-cut stars from Brown Kraft Cardstock as well as other papers were added sneaking in Red and Blue Baker's twine bow. Lastly, sequins were scattered to the front for a touch of glam. For additional pictures and information, please visit Tammy's Blog: Creating Somewhere Under The Sun

Challenge #229 Clean And Simple Patriotic

Can you believe that it is almost the 4th of July? 
So to kick off this wonderful summer holiday we are starting with a CAS Patriotic Challenge #229.


Karen Letchworth


As we celebrate Patriotism with our "Let Freedom Ring" Challenge this week, Design Team Member Karen Letchworth wanted to create a card to celebrate the greatest country in the world....The United States of America.  She started with a Small Lunch Bag Kraft Note Card to which she added some red, white and blue cardstocks.  She die-cut the letters (USA) and attached some buttons with Red Baker's Twine.  Karen would LOVE to have you play along in this week's challenge, and invites you to visit her blog, My Cup Runneth Over

Marsha Drain

When Marsha thinks CAS, she thinks one layer, so excluding the Brown Kraft card base, her card is one layer with the illusion of more.    The liberty bell image and the sentiment were printed onto a piece of Buff Ivory Card Stock.  After cutting out an oval with a die, Marsha used that to mask off the bell then stamped the script onto the panel using a large BG stamp.  Keeping the oval in place, she traced the oval with a Tim Holz Distress Marker and then sponged distress ink around the outer edge of the oval.  After removing the mask, she colored the bell with Copics.  For more details, please visit her blog, Gramma's Room.



Tammy Hobbs
For this week's "CAS Patriotic" card, Tammy created a very quick CAS card to share with you all today. She started with a card base of Brown Kraft Coverweight cardstock which she added a layer of red cardstock to border the white card stock to capture the focal image of the United States flag embellishment. She then stamped her Let's Celebrate sentiment just below in Navy ink. She took a length of Red and Dark Blue Baker's Twine and wrapped it around the focal panel and tied in a bow. Lastly, she added a couple of sequins to the upper right corner of the panel. For additional pictures and information, please visit Tammy's blog: Creating Somewhere Under The Sun.
