My Creative Time November Release Sneak Peek #2

Welcome to DAY 2 of Sneaky Peeks for My Creative Time! I am SO excited for this release!

My oldest son is in Kenpo Karate with the BEST karate instructor EVER! In May he participated in the Karate Championship and took 2nd place in Creative Forms. He was an Orange Belt at that time, but has since earned his Purple Belt! I don't have a picture of him because the instructor decided to test him the day that my husband took him, so I didn't even know about it until he came home! His goal is to be a black belt by the time he graduates High School. He's got 6 years to go!


SO...I was SUPER excited to be able to do the sneak peek for one of Emma's new releases called "Black Belt!"


For my background, I decided to incorporate the different colored belts that you can earn in Kenpo Karate. I used my Janome sewing machine to add the stitching to them, and LOVE the way it turned out!

I just can't STOP making these little banners!! :)


I used the Sports Mania Cricut Cartridge for the Discipline title cut. I cut out the symbol it had cut and stamped it with another stamp in this set. It worked perfectly!





Supplies:

PaperTrey Ink White cardstock and misc colored cardstock

My Creative Time stamps and dies:
"Anyday Bingo And Crossword" stamp set
Build A Banner Kit
"Black Belt" stamp set

Stampin' Up Corner Ticket punch
Janome and misc thread
Offray Black Ribbon
