Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Color" Challenge
For this week's "Color Challenge", It looks like Tammy took a literal approach inspired by all the snowflakes in the inspiration photo. She started by cutting a snowflake from Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock which she covered in Frosted Lace Stickles to give it the appearance of an iced cookie. After it dried, she applied it to a pink snowflake shadow she cut using a Silhouette machine. In the center, a crochet flower was added and further embellished by a bow from Yellow Baker's Twine and a soft yellow button laced with Natural Hemp Cord. All papers were layered and added onto a card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock.

For this week's color challenge at The Kraft Journal, Debbie created a little frosty fella inspired by the delicious colors from the inspiration board! She began with a base of Smoky Slate followed by a piece of Buff Ivory Cardstock. Next she layered some pretty patterned paper and a strip of Pink & White Polka Dot Washi Tape. Debbie machine zig-zag stitched around the edges. Next step was to add a pretty white glittered chipboard snowflake, some silver jingle bells tied on with Pastel Hemp Cording and then a pretty pink stripe grosgrain bow. To create Mr. Frosty, Debbie added white doilie stickers to the middles of 3 Bottle Caps and adhered them onto the base of her card. Deb added black pearls for eyes & buttons and tied on a pink grosgrain scarf. The hat was created using a snipett of Blackboard Tag and then a soft yellow paper bloom was adhered. A Pink & White Chenille Candy Cane was added and then a sentiment tag was created using a piece of White Pearlized Decorative Tag and stamped with the Warm Winter Wishes set!

Our Design Team Member, Karen Letchworth, was just delighted when she saw this week's beautiful palette for the Color Challenge. She knew right away that she would use some patterned papers from her stash that matched the theme just perfectly. She started with a Buff/Ivory Small Notecard and then stitched her patterned papers for the background. She added the 3-D ornaments and "hung them" with Baker's Twine. Next, she took a Small Glassine Bag, folded it over and stitched a piece of coordinating patterned paper on it, creating a pocket to hold a gift card or treat - onto which she added her sentiment. She tucked a journaling card inside the Glassine Bag that she cut from a piece of Buff Ivory Cardstock, and then adorned the top of it with a glittered Tiny Wooden Clothespin. (A close-up photo of her pocket can be seen on her blog) She also added a seam binding bow with a button in the center that's tied with Natural Hemp Cord. Further details about products used on this card, as well as additional photos, can be found on Karen's Blog, My Cup Runneth Over.
