Welcome to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge!

Today is the FIRST Tic Tac Toe Challenge and I’m so excited you are here!!  This is our debut challenge and it is a fun one.  The tic tac toe board we are playing with is below. Each square is an element you can use when creating your card. Use any three elements/supplies on the board as long as the three elements you choose form a row, column or diagonal on the challenge board.

For my card today I used quite a few elements from the board. I’ll tell you about them below 🙂

The first element is heat embossing. I embossed the flamingo from the new Fabulous Flamingo stamp set using white embossing powder. I also embossed the sentiment in gold (another element). I have to say I love this sentiment and I am “tickled pink” about this whole stamp set!

The next element is stripes. I used a cute little stripe stamp from the new Tabs for Everything stamp set. And the stripes are set on a white (element) circle (element) and tied up with a bit of white baker’s twine (element). See how fun this challenge is? I just couldn’t help myself, I had to use as many of the elements as I could! When I look at the challenge board, my card makes the diagonals in both directions, the center vertical row and the top and bottom horizontal rows. You can tell I had fun 🙂

Tickled Pink for You ~ Two Sneak Peeks!

New baby cards are just so much fun to make, aren’t they? For this card I combined three different stamp sets to get what I wanted 🙂

The darling little teddy bear is from the fun Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and coordinating punch. What? Christmas? Well, teddy bears aren’t just for Christmas, they are for babies and children. And I love that a Christmas stamp set and punch can be used year round!

Pretty Pointer: Create your own designer series paper (dsp)! Yes, you can easily do this. For my white watercolored panel here, I stamped a pretty heart from the new Ribbon of Courage stamp set over and over arbitrarily. Then I went back and watercolored over it with an Aqua Pen containing only clear water, blending the images for a bit of an obscured background.

The Blushing Bride panel was dry embossed with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I think it gives the card a sweet look.

The sentiment (which I love!!) is from a new stamp set called Fabulous Flamingos. I can’t wait for you to see the whole set!!
