Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Clean & Simple" Challenge
Jan Del Bone
Jan always has a little difficulty with a clean and simple challenge.  She says it is always so tempting to want to add more and more !  This week she began her card with a Kraft Blank Note Card, and adhered some design paper to it.  Her bird image was bordered by some Kraft card stock, and wrapped with Earthy hemp cord, pulled through a button and into a bow.  The sentiment is from the Pretoria Fortunes Rubbing.  Very simple. !  Stop by Jan's blog, chai tea 'n me, and say hullo !
Tammy Hobbs
For today's "Clean and Simple" challenge, Tammy used a basic layout making sure Lunch Bag Kraft is the focal presence. She started with a turquoise card base onto which she added her hand stamped polka-dot background panel of Lunch Bag Kraft.   She die-cut three butterflies and embellished with Kraft colored rhinestones and added to the right side of the panel. All that was left was to add some darling mini butterflies and a sweet sentiment. Please visit Tammy's blog, Creating Somewhere Under The Sun for additional pictures and information.

Jessica Esch
For this week's Clean and Simple Challenge Jessica made a fun card based on one of her favorite things.....her chickens. Using brown kraft cardtock as her card base and then layering it with a smaller mat of black, cream and brown kraft cardstock a card LO like this could be very easily massed produced to give as a gift set. After stamping her chicken wire background using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then copying it onto the smaller mat, Jessica added a decorative stitching border using her sewing machine and then went ahead to stamp her image. Since her image was stamped on the brown kraft cardstock, to add some color to the image she embellished it with some yellow, red and diamond stickles. For more details and additional pictures, you can visit Jessica's blog~ Chick-n-Scrap.

Karen Letchworth
The idea of making a "CAS" (Clean and Simple) card can be challenging for anyone.  Design Team Member, Karen is no exception, so she decided to try out a few of her new supplies from The Kraft Outlet to create something fairly simple.  She started with a Lunch Bag Kraft Note Card and then added a couple different styles of the fabulous new Decorative Washi Tapes now available at The Kraft Outlet, and she adhered them to the card as well as to a Mini Kraft Merchandise Bag.  She added the black accent of a Jenni Bowlin Rub-On to make it POP.  Two of the reasons Karen loves the Mini Kraft Merchandise Bags so much is because they are just the perfect size for tucking in a gift card (which she did - if you can see it peeking through), and the fact that they cost just TWENTY CENTS each!!  She touched the edges with cream colored acrylic paint, and added an accent at the top using a Number Flag Banner Sticker adhered to the coordinating Chipboard Flag Pieces with a candy-coated glittered Tiny Wooden Clothes Pin for fun!  You can stop by Karen's Blog, My Cup Runneth Over to read more about this project if you'd like.  Karen hopes to see you ALL play along in this week's fun CAS challenge.
