Kraft Outlet DT Reveal for "Green" Challenge

Karen Letchworth
For this week's "Lucky Green" Challenge, Karen wanted to share some of her favorite "yummy treats". When she thinks green, some of the yummy treats that quickly come to mind include Green Apple Caramel Covered Suckers and Mint Green Tea Hand-Stained Bias Tape.  They're both SUPER YUMMY! Karen started this quick and easy project with a Small Kraft Coffee Bag With Window and filled it with her favorite green treat which are Green Apple Caramel Covered Suckers ( can find them at Dollar Tree). She closed the Kraft Coffee Bag and ran two lengths of Green Baker's Twine around the bag and tied them in a knot.

Next, Karen took a Canvas Triangle (which, by the way, are now on sale for $1.50 for a set of 3) and to that, she added a luscious bow made of Mint Green Tea Hand-Stained Bias TapeVintage Winter White Hand-Stained Bias Tape, and the Green Baker'sTwine.  Next, she took a Round Metal Edged Grungy Prim Tag and, using my handy Bone Folder Tool, applied a rub-on St. Patrick's Day sentiment.  This project literally took Karen about 3 minutes to complete.  The amazing and versatile supplies found at the Kraft Outlet make your crafting projects fun and easy.  For more information about her "Lucky Green" project, Karen invites you stop by her blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to say hello.
Tammy Hobbs
For today's "Lucky Green" challenge, Tammy decided to make a few Pot of Gold treat holders out of Black Board Stock Paper.  She then die-cut a rosette from Green cardstock adding a scallop circle from Brown Kraft Cover Weight, a die-cut circle from Black Board Stock Paper followed by a green die-cut shamrock. She added a Good Luck sentiment to the center of the green shamrock embellishing with some Kraft color pearls. For the treats themselves, she filled a bag with gold Rolo's which she tied the top in a bow from Black Twill Tape further embellishing with a triple bow of Dark Green Baker's  Twine, buttons, and a Happy St. Patrick's sentiment stamped on a die-cut banner from Brown Kraft Cover Weight.  For additional pictures and a complete supply list, please visit Tammy at Creating Somewhere Under The Sun.
Debbie Marcinkiewicz
For this week's 'Lucky Green' challenge, Debbie created a sweet treat ... suitable as giving as a gift and wonderful to use as a favor at a party or shower!  Deb began with a darling Cotton Drawstring Bag onto which she adhered a length of White with Red Polka Dot Washi Tape along the bottom.  Next Debbie stamped a frame image and sentiment directly onto the fabric using the Best Wishes stamp set.  Deb adhered three beautiful Peppermint Iridescent Sequins onto the frame for a pop of color and to coordinate with the dots in the Washi Tape.  Next Debbie created a pretty nosegay at the top of her treat bag using Mint Green Tea Seam Binding, a paper flower from Prima and leaves cut from Corrugated Paper.
Inside the treat bag, Debbie packaged some tea cookies inside a Small Cello Bag and then tied it with some additional Mint Green Tea Seam Binding.  To finish this little sweet treat, Debbie stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Buff Ivory Cardstock using the Home Sweet Home stamp set, tied it onto the treat bag using Green Baker's Twine and then added a Rusty Bell to complete the design.  Please visit Debbie's blog for additional pictures of today's project!

Anitra Tovar
For this week's challenge Anitra was inspired by the colors of  green found in nature.  She started with a Brown Kraft Note Card and matted patterned paper which she stitched around the edge using a zig-zag stitch.  She then added an image cut from patterned paper and matted it with some Blackboard Stock Paper.  Using coordinating paper from the same line she cut additional patterned paper and matted it with some green card stock.  Anitra just can't get enough of the wonderful Hand Stained seam binding offered at the Kraft Outlet.  For this card she used Oatmeal Cream, which she tied in a simple bow.  Some ruler stickers from the Black Apothecary Sticker sheet are tucked in behind the image and patterned paper.  Two green buttons and a Chipboard Button from the office set were adhered to the bottom and some black hemp cord from the Earthy Hemp Cord collection were threaded through the button holes.  For more information on how Anitra created this card please visit her blog Stamping While They Sleep.

Kristi Schurr
For This week's Lucky Greens challenge, Kristi used a sweet vintage St Patrick's Day image. She began her card by making a card base from Lunch Bag Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock. She layered a green polka dot patterned paper over the base and stitched around it in white. She die cut a large green shamrock,dry embossed it with a polka dot pattern and arranged it slightly askew on the card front. Kristi then matted her focal image with  Lunch Bag Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock. She added some fringe she made with Kraft Tissue paper, and adhered it to the front with foam tape. She added a glittered die cut shamrock to the bottom right of the focal image and a bow made from green and white seam binding and green cording from the Dark Jewel Hemp Cord pack . Kristi finished her card by adding a green velvet button and green pearls to the middle of the bow.
