Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Clean and Simple" Challenge
Lynn Darda

Before we tell you about this great project, please join us in welcoming Lynn Darda back to the Kraft Outlet team for the summer months, we're so excited to have her back! Lynn created this Clean and Simple card loosely based on a sketch from Retro Sketches.  Lynn used Kraft Coverweight Cardstock for the base.  The patterned panels were cut from the Kraft and Black Cardstock Pack.   The hexagon stickers are from the Jenni Bowlin Memo Quilted Stickers.  Lynn stamped the sentiment and this card is good to go, clean and simple.  Check out Lynn's blog, From My Bungalow, to see another C & S card using the same supplies.

Jan Del Bone

Jan says clean and simple is always a challenge for her !  For this card, Jan began with the always adaptable Kraft Lunch Box Blank Note Card.  She embossed the design paper, and stamped a sentiment, then layered it on a border of Buff Ivory Card Stock.  She lightly covered the flowers with a little ink, and used Washi tape to complete the inside.  The whole card can be made in about 5 minutes, and would be useful as a template for a set of stationary.  Stop in at chai tea 'n me, and say hello !!

Jessica Esch
For this week's Clean and Simple Challenge, Jessica made a graduation card, perfect for the upcoming Graduation season. She started out with a Brown Kraft Cardstock base and added a mat of black and white card stock. She had this beautiful paper kit from "DCVW~ Graduation" that she used to layer the bottom of her mat. To cover the break from the pattern paper and white card stock, Jessica added some Black Twill Tapea double bow of Natural Hemp Cord and embellished with a Custom Fastener  blinged out with some gold stickles to match the gold in the pattern paper.
For the sentiment, Jessica used My Creative Time~Follow Your Dreams stamp set. How fun is this, Jessica even decorated the inside of her card with the matching mat layers and pattern paper. For more details on her  inspiration card, you can visit Jessica's blog~ Chick-n-Scrap. 

Debbie Marcinkiewicz
For today's 'Clean and Simple' challenge, Debbie began with a base of Buff Ivory Card Stock onto which she layered red and aqua card stock.  Deb added a pretty little strip of Red & White Polka Dot Washi Tape which she snipped at the end to create a point.  Next, Debbie added a Chipboard Button on which she tied some yummy Red Baker's Twine.  The label and sentiment were created using the Beautiful stamp set from Paper Sweeties which Debbie stamped on a piece of Buff Ivory Card Stock.  Last, Debbie added a chipboard "4" and "U" to complete her design!  Please visit Debbie's blog to view additional pictures of today's card.
