Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Die Cut" Challenge

Tammy Hobbs
For this week's "Die-Cut" challenge, Tammy used many dies on her card today. A total of 8 dies and 9 cuts to be exact. She wanted to use felt on her card to show that it's another great way to add texture to your projects and die-cuts beautifully .  She started with a Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock base. She covered the front of the card with patterned paper leaving a portion of the Kraft exposed for the sentiment.  Tammy took a length of Natural Twill Tape and wrapped it around the card front tying in a bow adding another bow using Metallic Twist Hemp Cord finishing it off with a button.  Next she used a die-cut frame from Brown Kraft Cover Weight and used Buff Ivory Cardstock to die-cut a square to stamp the focal image to nestle inside the frame. Underneath the stamped focal point, she used a die-cut border from Buff Ivory Cardstock to place where the patterned papers join. She took several flower dies to create the felt flowers embellishing with buttons and pearls.  For additional pictures and a complete supply list, please visit Tammy's blog: Creating Somewhere Under The Sun.

Jan Del Bone
Jan joins in this week with a guy card, using a die cut.  She began with a
brown Kraft note card, a bit of lace and a punched piece of design paper.  She die-cut some brown card stock, and added three pieces of natural hemp cord, with a screw brad, and some TH tassel.
Green corrugated paper was torn, and adhered.  Atop that is a piece of Mini Gypsy Ephemera label, some stickered words, a mustache brad, and a clothes hanger clip.

Inside are more stickered and rub-on words, washi tape and a TH file tab.  Jan really enjoys making cards for men !  Stop by her blog, chai tea 'n me, and say hello !!
Kristi Schurr
This week's die cut challenge was a fun one for Kristi! She was able to combine premade die cuts with some she made from her die collection.She began her card by making a 5.5 by 5.5 inch base from Brown Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock. She layered two different patterned papers on the base,then stitched around the edges with black thread. Kristi die cut a frame from Blackboard Stock Paper, then adhered it to the middle of the card using foam tape.She layered a frame and two tag die cuts, also adhering them with foam tape. She added a Tiny Wooden Clothespin and a piece of  Metallic Twist Hemp Cord to the smallest tag.Kristi added several coordinating premade die cuts to her card, layering some with foam dots for dimension. A black and clear jeweled swirl sticker is the finishing touch. For more information and a complete supply list, visit Kristi's blog, Kristi's Paper Creations.

Anitra Tovar
Anitra loves making cards using dies, and for this challenge she used a die to create this scalloped card!  She started with Blackboard Stock Paper as her base.  Anitra loves the weight of this speciality paper.  It is perfect to use as a card base.  Using a scalloped rectangle die she placed her folded card just shy of the cutting scallops on the left to create a card with three scalloped sides.  She then matted various patterned papers and half of a paper doily.  Next Anitra created her own frame using a set of nesting dies and the Blackboard Stock Paper.  She stamped her image and colored it.  Then using the same die she used to create the frame she die cut the image and popped up the frame.  The lovely bow was created using some Hand Stained Bias Tape in Mint Green which she added more color to by gently running parts of it over a kiwi stamp pad.  This created beautiful tones of greens that are grounded by the black multi looped Earthy Hemp Cord bow.  She added a button to the center of the bow and finished off her card with a button sticker from the Hodge Podge Magpie Sticker sheet.  A tiny Black Baker's Twine bow is threaded through the sticker button.  For more information on how Anitra created this card please stop by her blog Stamping While They Sleep.
