While it’s time for a (birthday) celebration, it’s also time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge. I loved working with this board that Karren created. So many of the elements spoke to me that I had a hard time deciding what to create. I chose to go two ways on the board… left side diagonal: Blue, Free, Celebration and middle column down: Stripes, Free, Flowers
I was recently browsing Scrapbook.com’s site and came across this beautiful paper collection, Dusty Blue Floral by Asuka Studio and just could not pass it up. Blue is my favorite color and I love the soft florals and other vintage patterns in this collection. So needless to say, the paper did most of the work on this card. I found the perfect sentiment to go with the hand-cut clock image in SU’s Beautiful Balloons stamp set.
Here’s a look at the inside. The sentiment is from Gina K’s Wreath Builder stamp set. Isn’t that a great font?
You can see the rest of Team O’s design on the Tic Tac Toe Challenge HERE. While there, I hope you’ll be inspired to play along with us.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Welcome back to another CASEing Coast to Coast project adventure. Each month my friend, Karen Hallam in CA and myself here in PA come together to collaborate on a stamping project. We alternate choosing the direction of our project each month and then CASE (copy and selectively edit) the chosen theme, color combination, sketch, etc. This month we chose a Holiday Treat theme….
Even though I got to choose our direction, it was a bit of a challenge for me to decide on a project. That is, until I remembered that I had these cute and fun dies from The Greetery: the Rectangle Candy Pops dies. I purchased these when they first came out probably at least two years ago and I’m ashamed to say that I never used them until now. I hate when that happens and it seems to happen a lot here! They make such a fun gift tag with the added chocolate Santa treat. I think perhaps three Hershey nuggets would also fit inside. I’m going to try that soon. The striped paper is from a retired Papertrey Ink collection and worked perfectly with these dies.
Thanks for looking in today. If you haven’t already, please head west HERE to see Karen’s creative project.
Have a happy Wednesday,
Welcome to the first Tic Tac Toe Challenge of November…how is it November already? This week’s challenge board created by Silke is chock full of fun elements and I had a lot of fun with them.
Here’s the board….I hope you’ll play along with us.
And here is my project….
I chose the first row across: Ornaments, Gift Tag, Ribbon
I reached far back into my stash to come up with these pretty ornament tags. The stamp set is from a one-time favorite stamp company, Waltzing Mouse Stamps. Unfortunately, they are no longer in business. I stamped each ornament in Versa Mark ink and heat embossed in various metallic embossing powders. I used gold, silver, platinum and copper. This stamp set coordinates with a few Spellbinders die sets: 2010 Heirloom Ornaments, 2011 Heirloom Ornaments and 2012 Heirloom Ornaments.
Here’s the inside of the tag…
It was really fun to revisit these stamps and dies. I even have a few more ideas for them.
While I’m still have a good time creating Fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving projects, I threw in a Christmas Fun Fold for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.
Here’s Jeanne’s board…
I chose to go with the middle column down: Fun Fold, Gingerbread, Any Holiday and also the left diagonal: Plaid, Gingerbread, Enamel Dots
Here’s a look at the fold and the inside. I used a variety of products from my stash beginning with Papertrey Ink’s Scent-imentals stamp set for the gingerbread boy and Power Poppy’s ________ for the inside sentiment. For more inspiration, HERE’s another card I made using the same layout.
Thanks for looking into today and I hope you’ll head over to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge to see all the projects the design team came up with this weeks.
