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 Dorcas of Dorcas Designs
Dorcas' card today features another image colored on Kraft, her specialty. She used Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock as a base for coloring her "so romantic" image with  pencils. For more views, feel free to visit her blog.

Also we'd like to take a moment to sincerely thank Dorcas for sharing her creations with us these past four weeks as a Guest Designer for Kraft Outlet, her color on Kraft cardstock techniques are amazing and we've been delighted to share her talents with our readers here at The Kraft Journal!

Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "So Romantic" Challenge

Tracy MacDonald

Tracy created a fun Valentine themed card onto a base of Light Kraft Cover Weight cardstock.  Her sentiment and banner are also made from Light Kraft.  She tied her sentiment under the image with Red Baker's Twine  through some eyelets.  For the inside of the card, she created a tag pocket from a Small Glassine Bag.  The bag was trimmed with decorative edge scissors and wrapped with more of the Red Baker's Twine.  Tracy cut a tag from more of the Light Kraft and added another stamped image and some 7 Gypsies Gypsy Market seam binding.
Jennifer Cuthbertson
Jennifer created this romantic card using a light kraft card base and some fun new papers! The large label was stamped on a piece of recycled chipboard and a smaller label was stamped and layered. The card was finished with some seam binding and a love ticket. Head over to her blog for a complete list of supplies.

Debbie Carriere
For this week's "So Romantic" challenge, Debbie Carriere used a color palette of pink, kraft, and black for her card.  She stitched two pieces of love themed patterned papers and a piece of Brown Kraft cover weight cardstock onto mats of black cardstock.  She layered the stitched panels and wrapped with a piece of Black Twill Tape which she ruffled along a piece of red line tape.  The many layers of the sentiment circle (including a Light Kraft doily shape) and three pennants were added on top.  She finished off the card with some felt birds and a Pewter Stick Pin tied with a Red Baker's Twine bow.  Visit Debbie's blog for more photos and a complete supply list.
