Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Sketch" Challenge

Tammy Hobbs
For today's sketch challenge, Tammy thought this was a perfect sketch for a masculine card. She started with a card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock which she layered a piece of patterned paper that was more on the masculine side. Tammy took a length of Natural Hemp Cord and wrapped it around the center panel three times. She stamped her focal image on Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and colored in with various Copic Markers. Next she die-cut the image out and inked the edges using her blending tool and distress inks and layered it on a coordinated die-cut. Lastly, she stamped her Happy Birthday sentiment in black ink onto Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock also die-cuting adding distress inks to the edges to complete this masculine birthday card. Please stop by Tammy's Blog: Creating Somewhere Under The Sun to view additional pictures and information.

Debbie Marcinkiewicz
For this week's sketch challenge, Debbie created a {sweet treat} gift idea using stamped sentiments on a oval die cut and tag for the oval and square elements of the sketch!  Debbie began with a Kraft CD Envelope which she covered with patterned papers.  Next she cut a white paper doilie in half and adhered half of an Oval Brown Kraft Label onto it before adhering the doilie to the base of the CD Envelope.  Next Deb created a pretty paper ruffle using a Vintage Dictionary Page and then tied a length of White Twill Tape around the center of the CD Envelope.  Red Baker's Twine was wrapped around the Twill Tape and two Rusty Jingle Bells were tied on.  A fluffy Red & White Chenille Candy Cane was slipped under the Baker's Twine and secured with hot glue.  Debbie stamped the sentiments onto Buff Ivory Cardstock and a Scalloped Grungy Prim Tag.  The oval sentiment was die cut and adhered directly to the base of the CD Envelope.  The Grungy Prim Tag was attached to the Candy Cane with a Memo Pin and then a tiny, red button was added.  A white paper doily was wrapped around an envelope of Peppermint Hot Chocolate and tied on with Red Baker's Twine.  Marshmallows were added to a clear cellophane sleeve and the treats were slipped inside the CD Envelope.  Please visit Debbie's blog to view additional pictures of today's sweet treat idea!

Jessica Esch

For this week's sketch challenge, Jessica made a sparkly Christmas card using several products from The Kraft Outlet. She started out with a Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock card base and added a layer of Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock as well as a layer of My Mind's Eye Christmas pattern paper. Then she took some Brown Hemp from the Earthy Hemp Cord pack and wrapped it around her card mat 3 times, adhering it to the back of the mat using some tape.  
For the focal point of Jessica's card, she cut 2 ovals using her cameo, one in the Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and the other in the Buff Ivory Cover Weight CardstockShe stamped her sentiment, using My Creative Time's~ From Our Family to Yours stamp set and adding the decorative piece using a stamp from the Build a Postcard set. She then added white gel pen to the "snow" on the "Noel" sentiment and  some Diamond Stickles for some shimmer and sparkly. She also added some Red Stickles to the center of the ornament and the decorative piece....all to match the glittery pattern paper.
To further embellish her card, Jessica took a Tiny Wooden Clothespinadded some more Red Stickles to it and when it was dry, hot glued a Cream Twill Tape bow to the center.
She attached the Tiny Wooden Clothespin to the sentiment piece, added foam pop dots to the back of the sentiment and centered it onto her card.

Kristi Schurr
For this week's sketch, Kristi went with a rustic reindeer theme. Her card began with a base made from Lunch Bag Kraft Cover Cardstock. She distressed the edges and layered a red and cream reindeer themed paper on top. She die cut a Christmas ornament shape from a  Vintage Dictionary Page and some patterned paper,then layered them onto the middle of the card. She punched a gold reindeer silhouette from gold glittered paper and layered it on the middle of the card with a foam dot. Kristi then added a sentiment built with Chit Chat Seasonal Word Stickers. For the finishing touch, she made a bow from red and green cord from the Dark Jewel Hemp Cord pack,then attached a cute wooden snowflake to the middle of the bow.For more information and a complete supply list,please visit Kristi at her blog, Kristi's Paper Creations.

Karen Letchworth
Sketches are always fun, and for this week's Sketch Challenge, our DT Member, Karen Letchworth really had some fun!  She started her card with a Small Buff Ivory Notecard which is a MUST-HAVE for every crafter.  These wonderful packages of Notecards come with 10 cards and matching envelopes for just $3.99 which is a great price for this high-quality linen-look and feel paper.  Next, Karen covered the Notecard with patterned paper, and added some simple embellishments from the Kraft Outlet following the lines of the sketch, including several lengths of Brown Baker's Twine, a Jenni Bowlin General Store Postage Stamp Sticker (25 cents), Jenni Bowlin Letter Stickers, and a Jenni Bowlin General Store Flatback (10 cents).  That's about it!  For a complete supply list, or just to say hello, you're invited to stop by Karen's Blog, My Cup Runneth Over.  Have lots of fun with this week's Sketch Challenge.  We can't wait to see what you'll create!
