Throwback Thursday Challenge with My Creative Time!


It's another My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday!  Today Emma is asking us to make a "Cricutless" project using the colors orange, black, green, and purple.  We're also showcasing her All Around Halloween stamp set.

I got my inspiration for this card from this t-shirt my friend's daughter was wearing.  There are so many cute kid's clothes that give great inspiration for cards!

I made my tic-tac-tac toe board by cutting a 3" square of kraft cardstock and mounting it on a 3 1/4" square of green cardstock. The same green is cut into 1/4" strips for the lines.  I then stamped some of the cute pumpkin and witch hat stamps from All Around Halloween, colored them, and added a button and twine to one of the squares.

For my sentiment, I used the My Creative Time Stitched Oval Die and then stamped a sentiment from the Mixed Holiday Sentiments Stamp Set.  This sentiment comes with "Happy" above "Halloween," but it was easy to cover one word at a time with scotch tape when inking it up, and then stamp them side by side.

You can order all of these My Creative Time products by clicking here.  Be sure to stop by My Creative Time to see what she has created for you today, as well as the awesome projects by my design team pals.  We even have a brand new designer on our team, who you do not want to miss!
