Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Shape It Up" Challenge

Tammy Hobbs

For today’s Shape It Up challenge, Tammy started this card by using an apple template with a Buff Ivory Cardstock base and pieced the apple, stem and leaf with patterned paper, and Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock which has been punched to resemble a Caramel Apple. Tammy then used a distress tool for the card's edge and added some vintage ink to further complete the distress look. She then stamped a whimsical sentiment “school days” to the upper left portion of the apple. For a finishing touch, Tammy embellished her apple card with some red buttons and twine. To find out more about this card, please visit Tammy’s blog Creating Somewhere Under The Sun!

Debbie Marcinkiewicz
For today's 'Shape It Up' challenge, Debbie decided to get a jump on her fall card making and designed this sweet little pumpkin shaped card!  To begin, Deb cut the Perfect Pumpkin from My Time Made Easy using her Cricut and inked the edges with Twill paint to create a time-worn look.  Next Debbie added a paper doilie and spooky purple patterned paper ruffle -- a machine zig-zag stitch was added to hold the paper ruffle in place.  Debbie added a tiny black metal clip to the end of the ruffle for balance of her design.  Deb created an adorable 'boo' banner using three Banner Chipboard Pieces, Black Baker's Twine and Black Banner Stickers.  The banner is attached to the pumpkin card using Black Wooden Clothespins.  Last, Debbie cut a piece of Burlap to create the stem and then added two Pewter Stick Pins, a snipette of Adelaide Seam Binding and some Natural Hemp Cord to complete her design.  There is a stamped Halloween sentiment on the inside of the card ... please visit Debbie's blog, Simple Treasures, for more pictures of this little fella!

Tracy MacDonald
Tracy decided to go with the hexagon shape for this weeks "Shape It Up" challenge.  The card base was cut from black cardstock into a hexagon shape and matted with Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock and Kraft and Black Cardstock Pad papers.  She wrapped the mats in some canvas fringe ribbon and Black Baker's Twine.  For the center panel she matted hexagons of designer paper with Light Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and black.  She wrapped one with more of the Baker's twine and added a Scalloped Grungy Prim Tag with a sentiment.  Machine stitching, brads and a Copic colored bee on a decorative base complete the card.
Jan Del Bone

Jan made a basic little box for some Halloween treats.  The box was made from the Kraft & Black Card stock pad, with the center cut out and covered from the inside with clear craft plastic, and some design paper. The lid has sequins around the edges.  The little box was completed with some scary spider stickers, and Gypsy Market seam binding.  The stained grungy tag was made more grungy with some ink, and a stamp, some tape, a crow brad were added, along with Gypsy Market seam binding, and Earthy Hemp Cord.
