A Beautiful Bouquet Celebration – Tic Tac Toe Challenge #041

Stampin Up Beautiful Bouquet Birthday Cards Idea - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

Today’s bright and cheerful birthday card comes courtesy of the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle available in the Annual Catalog and the Celebrate You Thinlits available only until March 31st as part of 2018 Sale-A-Bration.

It’s Thursday and time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  The very talented Peggy Noe is our lead designer this week.  Here’s Peggy’s board…

I chose the 3rd row across: green, baker’s twin, bold sentiment and also the 3rd column down: die cut, leaf/leaves, bold sentiment

As soon as I saw the bold sentiment element on the board, I knew I would be using the celebrate die from the Celebrate You Thinlits that are still available during Sale-A-Bration.  I love all the dies in this collection, but most especially this large one.  It makes such a fun statement.  For this card, I cut it out in both Berry Burst card stock and Lemon-Lime Twist card stock and slightly offset the layering for a more dimensional look.  This is a new color combination for me and I think it’s so fun and refreshing.

Remember when the Annual Catalog came out last June and there was so much excitement over the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle?  Well, just like most things, this got swept aside for first the Holiday and now the Occasions Catalog products.  This is a fabulous bundle and creates so many fun flowers.

My bouquet consists of flowers stamped in Flirty Famingo, Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach and So Saffron ink with a few leaf fronds cut out in Lemon Lime Twist card stock.

Along with the pretty flower images in this stamp set, there are some great sentiments, in a pretty font, that can be used for so many different occasions.  When a stamp set has both terrific images, useful sentiments for several occasions and a lovely font, you know it’s a good value.  And this bundle checks all those boxes!

Two different sentiments from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set combine to make the inside sentiment.  A small flower stamped in Berry Burst gives the inside a little added interest.

I hope this project inspired you to reach back into the Annual Catalog and remember to use those products that “WOWED” you but have been put aside or maybe never even used.  But if you happened to overlook this awesome bundle, take another look and see the many possibilities it offers.  You can shop HERE for it.

Thanks for checking in today and I hope you’ll hop over to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge blog and see the creative and inspirational projects shared by both the design team and those who play the challenge.

Sale-A-Bration is quickly wrapping up at the end of this week on March 31st.  If there are any “must-haves” on your list, now is the time to act. Most of these products will be going away forever, however, sometimes a few will show up again in the new Annual Catalog, but there’s no way of knowing which ones.  The Celebrate You Thinlits were one of my “must-haves”!  You can check out all the Sale-A-Bration products HERE.

Thanks again for stopping by today.

Take care,
