Kraft Outlet Guest Designer Dorcas of Dorcas Designs

My name is Dorcas and I am a married SAHM who homeschools our 13 year old daughter. We live in the countyside of North Carolina with two cats and 22 ducks. I love to craft whenever I get the chance and coloring on Kraft cardstock is just about my favorite thing to do when card making. I feel that my skill has improved so much in the last year or two simply due to all the tips and inspiration of fellow crafters in Blogland! To everyone, thank you!

Created by Guest Designer Dorcas of Dorcas Designs
Dorcas made a sweet "Welcome Baby" gift tag using a Large Kraft Shipping Tag, decorated with scraps of decorative paper and for the focal point a stamped image colored on Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock.

Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Stamp it Pretty" Challenge

Tracy MacDonald

Tracy used a card base of Brown Kraft cardstock for her card and layered panels of Light Kraft cardstock matted with black onto the base.  The panels were stamped with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.  She then traced the outlines of her stamped images with a grey Copic marker.  Tracy embellished her card with two 7 Gypsies Mini Receipts Mini Ephemera Labels, a Small Glassine bag and a sentiment stamped on more Light Kraft.  The finishing touches on her card are a 7 Gypsies Gypsy Market seam binding bow with two Jenni Bowlin Garnet stickpins and a large button tied with Hang Tag string.

Debbie Marcinkiewicz
Debbie chose a birthday theme for the design of today's 'Stamp It Pretty' card!  First she stamped the adorable cupcake image and sentiment onto a piece of Buff Ivory Cardstock, cut it out and then backed that image onto a piece of black cardstock.  Deb glittered the cherry with some red tinsel glitter and adhered the image to the base of the card.  Next Debbie wrapped a piece of Black Twill Tying Tape around the card base and then over wrapped the twill tape with some Red Baker's Twine.  A couple of pretty Garnet Stick Pins were added to the sweet nosegay and the entire card base was adhered to a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock.  Visit Debbie's Simple Treasures blog for more details.

Debbie Carriere
For this week's Stamp it Pretty challenge, Debbie Carriere chose to stamp on a few different elements of her card using a mixture of images and sentiments.  She started with a Brown Kraft Cover Weight card base layered with two stitched patterned paper panels.  She stamped on a couple Tim Holtz journaling tickets to create a fun vertical panel element.  There is also a stamped border stitched over some Black Twill Tape.  Her sentiment circle consists of a stamped sentiment accented with a handful of coordinating images stamped in various ink colors.  Her embellishment cluster in the bottom right corner was created with a few different products - Chipboard Flag Pieces, Flag Banner Stickers, a felt die cut heart, and a button tied with Red Baker's Twine.  For a complete recipe and more chit chat, visit her blog.
