CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge

Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge for October.

Our theme is Take a Technique!

For this month’s challenge the techniques we would like to see involve the strapline on our new look Craft Stamper cover: Ink Stitch Paint Collage Print Paper. If your project involves any one (or more!) of those, (and stamping, of course!) then you’re good to go!

Now let me just say that the Design Team will showcase the ATB (Artistic Trading Blocks) as a part of the prize that the winner will receive.  Those of you who play along with us can enter any style of project you wish!!!

Take a look at my ATB box:

Lifetime Adventure (TIMI)
I have to admit, this was my first time working with this type of block.  I headed straight to Pinterest to see how and what these block were.

I was blown away at the blocks I saw.  I tried to figure out how I could make my block look as fabulous as the ones I saw.  Then I thought, my style is Clean and Simple so why not just do that?

So, I want with a Clean and Simple ATB box!!!!

Here are the other views:

Smile for me (TIMI)

Take Flight (TIMI)
To create this block, all I did was cut Ken Oliver Studio Pattern Paper to the size of the block. Then I added Tim Holtz ChitChat Verbiage to each side of the block. I also added Tim Holtz Mini Gears and Mirrored Stars to the block.

Nice and easy!!

Now its your turn to play along with us.

We have a great prize pack for you.

We have two prizes to offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for October: Calico Craft Parts
