My Creative Time's FIRST Design Team Call!

How exciting to be able to submit a project for My Creative Times' Design Team call!  At the bottom under my supply list is a quote from My Creative Times with the info.  It would be terrific to work with the great talent of Emma and her team.  I am having a lot of fun as a member of the Cooking with Cricut Design team, which is not a sentiment based stamp company.  They are really a great bunch of folks and I enjoy every moment. I would really appreciate an opportunity to design for My Creative Times.

There are so many different projects I would love to create to submit for this, so many choices on what to do.  I wish I had some of My Creative Time's stamps, there are several sets that interest me.  Since I don't have any, I thought I would find something I have that is close to the ones that My Creative Time's offers, and I have to say I do not have many that can even compare.  The one I chose, I think, is at least close, and thought it was really nicely themed with the card idea and layout I planned.  I hope you all like it!

I created the snowflake paper by embossing on white card stock, with white snowflakes randomly stamped all over.  Then I used several Ranger inks in shades of blue and inked the card stock.  I think it really turned out nicely.  I created my lovely snow lady with my Cricut Expression 2 machine.  I used my alcohol markers to put a subtle shading on the left side of the snow lady.  I distressed the hat and scarf and then added a little sparkle with the gelly roll pen.  She is raised with pop dots.  My sentiment is stamped and embossed in navy and then decorated with little dots around the edge with my white Galaxy marker.  I used a punch I had for the shape.  I added a ribbon with a knot and then used an old snowflake punch I had to make a few snowflakes, which I distressed with a faint color and then used small zots to pop them up.

My supply list for the card:
Cricut Cartridge Winter Woodland.  Snow woman cut at 4.75 with shift, blackout, shadow and layers
Bazzill and CutMates paper
Echo Park Dots and Stripes paper
Ranger Distress Inks in Tea Dye, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Weathered Wood, and Fired Brick
Glue Glider Pro
Zig 2 way glue
Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon
CTMH Sentiment Stamp
several snowflake stamps I have that have no label on them
Versamark ink
White and Navy embossing powder (no name)
Galaxy white marker
atyouSpica Black sparkly marker
Letraset Pro Sky Blue and Arctic Blue, plus blender alcohol markers
Clear Star Gelly Roll pen
pop dots
And though I WISH I could have each and every one of you on my Design Team - that would be A LOT of members to keep track of (and I already have 3 boys to keep track of at home. Yes, that includes my DH)! Therefore, I have to choose a select few to showcase my stamp line and really bring out its best features. Because of this, I'm requesting that should you be chosen as a member of my DT, you not join or currently be serving as a Design Team member for any other "Sentiment-Based" stamp companies during your term. Thanks so much for understanding! Also, you would need to have a blog to participate!
Please create ONE project for this call. It can either be a card, layout, home decor item or a 3-D item! It would be nice to see my stamps used in your projects, but if you do NOT own any, please feel free to use what you have!
It would be a 3 month term, you will be required to do 1 to 2 blog hops a month & complete approx 8 (this is including sneak peek week)  projects a month!

Your entry MUST BE A NEW PROJECT especially for this DT call!;)
The deadline is Saturday, October 29th @ midnight to link your project up below!
I will announce my new DT on Friday, Nov 4th!

Thanks so much!!
