Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Cute Critters" Challenge

Debbie Marcinkiewicz
For today's 'Cute Critters' challenge, Debbie began with a base of white card stock onto which she layered a piece of Brown Kraft Card Stock.  Next she wrapped some Green Baker's Twine around a piece of sky blue shimmer card stock to create 'grass' and then adhered this to the card base.  Debbie created a cute scene with some die cut clouds and fence, a couple of felt critters and some stamped elements.  Lastly, Debbie stamped a sentiment banner on white card stock, adhered it to a Flag Banner Sticker and then to a Chipboard Flag Banner Piece.  Please visit Debbie's blog to view additional, close up shots of today's project!

Jessica Esch
For this week's Cute Critter Inspiration Jessica started out with a Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and added a layer of blue cardstock from the Persnickety paper pad from Lilybee Designs and then a layer of Vintage Dictionary PagesHow fun that the dictionary paper matched almost perfectly the cloud designer paper from my paper pack??? She then added some machine stitching to her mat and then die cut some clouds to use as a border from My Creative Time's~ Stitched Cartoon Cloud DiesThen using some Natural Hemp Cord and a Custom Fastener , she made her own embellishment by adding some faded jeans distress stickles and her birthday sentiment using the Teeny Tiny Greeting Stamps set with the matching die, again from My Creative Time.

For the cutie critter, She used a digital stamp, the adorable Girl Bear from Bugaboo Stamps, traced her in her silhouette studio so she could perfectly die cut a frame around her. She was printed off on the Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstockthen colored using Jessica's copic markers and paper pieced using matching papers from the designer paper pack. Jessica also wanted to bling her up a bit more so she added some red stickles to her headband and the heart on her dress and also added a SU gem to the bow. She was them popped up using foam dots to the card.

For more details on her inspiration card, you can visit Jessica's blog~ Chick-n-Scrap.
Lynn Darda

For the "Cute Critter" Challenge, Lynn started with a base of Lunch Bag Kraft which she cut in half lengthwise to create a pocket.  Then Lynn embellished the front with a strip of patterned paper and stamped accents.  Lynn tied it all off with some Metallic Twist Hemp Cord.  To see the inside message, the recipient pulls out the Yellow Library Card which includes a sentiment and signature.  The library cards, from the Kraft Outlet, are fun elements to add to scrapbooking and card projects.You can see the full view on Lynn's blog From My Bungalow. 

Karen Letchworth
Karen wanted to share some really "Cute Critters" with you all for this week's new challenge.  She went "down on the farm" and used some familiar barnyard friends on her project that certainly are "Cute Critters".  Karen started her project off by using a Lunch Bag Kraft Note Card and adhered a few farm-friendly patterned papers from October Afternoon by machine stitching them to that base.  She also used several elements in the background including a Jenni Bowlin Family Tree Journaling Card (yellow) topped with a 7 Gypsies Mini Receipts Ephemera Journaling Card which are also machine stitched together.  There are quite a few other little tidbits on this project, and you can read all about them on Karen's blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to get the complete supply list.  To make her "Cute Critters", Karen used some die-cuts that she backed with Precut Chipboard to help them stand out; and stuck in a little Tim Holtz Memo Pin that holds a small sentiment sticker.  Please stop by Karen's Blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to learn more about how this card was created, and to say hello.  She's really looking forward to seeing your "Cute Critters" this week as well!
