Good morning! This is Kim here. I am so excited to be hosting this Designer Challenge for My Creative Time! Emma is so sweet to allow us DT's to take over her blog! Thanks Emma!
So for this time around I have decided to do a Tic~Tac~Toe Challenge! All you have to do is pick a row from the chart below (vertical, horizontal or diagonal) and incorporate those three items on your project! You are free to use anything in addition, just be sure the three items in the row you chose is included! I would also like to give a shout out & big thanks to Miss Shar ~ she made the chart in word for me!
So I looked at my choices from the chart and decided to do the first horizontal row. I of course used my FAVORITE dies (and stamps) out there ~ My Creative Time. They can be used for so many different projects, plus they have Emma's signature stitching!
I decided to dry and heat emboss on my card. I used a Cuttlebug folder for my dry emboss and inked it up with some chalk. Then I heat embossed the little house and wagon. The house is from the stamp set "Home Sewn" and my wagon is from "Piles Of Smile" . I decided to emboss the wheels & the handle in black and my wagon in brown. I know it is hard to see from the picture. For my bling part I used the CUTE little heart button from "Stitched Button Dies" and added some glitter.
After I finished my card I realized I actually did the first horizontal row, first vertical row and both ways of the diagonal rows! You do NOT have to do that but I tend to add everything but the kitchen sink to my cards. I just LOVE using my MCT products.
My pattern papers are from the Teresa Collins paper "Far and Away". I used some thin hemp for my heart /button. These 2 items can be purchased at Liz's Paper Loft Boutique. The stitched hearts that are in my wagon from "100% Sweetness" . If you look real close, the gray heart has the "Script Background" stamp on it. I used the "XL Label Die" and the "Stitched XL Label Die" as well. My sentiment is from "Home Sewn" and stamped on the die from the "Chocolate Greeting" die. I wanted to layer that with the "Stitched Vintage Label Dies" ~ I just cut off the one end. They fit PERFECTLY together! As for my stitching I used the stitching stamp from the "Gift Card Sentiments" .
I also used paper and ribbon from PTI.
A real fun and easy challenge for you to join in right? We would LOVE to see what you all create for this Designer Challenge ~ Tic~Tac~Toe! Now for rest of the creative and talented design team!
