Show me your Technique Tuesday - Mini Hop with MCT


Hello and welcome to the fun new blog hop with My Creative Time.  Emma has this wonderful idea to have three members of her design team create a project and share with you a technique that we used while creating our project and share it with you.

For my technique, I thought I would share with you a fun way to add texture to cardstock with any scoring tool.  I have the Martha Stewart score board, so that is what I used along with a square piece of black cardstock with a purple color core (it is out of the Black Magic stack from Core'dinations).

I turned over the purple core cardstock, turned it so that it was on an angle to my board and scored it at every 3/8 of an inch.

I turned the cardstock piece 90 degrees and scored it again in the opposite direction at every 3/8 of an inch.  (Please excuse my poor ink stained cutting mat)

I then turned it over and sanded the black front with a sanding block so that the purple shows through at the score marks.

I then attached it to my card with the super fun images from the new Treats for my Sweet stamp set from My Creative Time.  The tag is die cut from the Teeny Tag Greetings set.  I colored in the pumpkin with Copic markers and added some beautiful orange Jute Ribbon from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.  The patterned paper is from Imaginisce and I cut the circle with my Cricut Expression 2 and the preloaded Cricut Essentials cartridge.

I am adding this to the Focal Point Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

I am so excited to share the links for the two other super talented designers participating today.....I can't wait to see what they created to share with you, too.
