Thank you for reading my blog! This card is for YOU, my blog readers. I SO appreciate you and thank you for supporting my work. You are a joy to me and I love making projects to show you 🙂
My card is for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week. I chose the last column on the right, and incorporated the elements stripes, thank you, and twine into my creation.
Any card made with the Floral Statements stamp set is gorgeous. The stamp does it all! It’s one of the prettiest stamps ever. Stamp it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and color it in with Stampin’ Blends — that’s it!
For this card I used the Cherry Cobbler Blends in both the light and dark shades. Each of the colors of Blends come in the two shades. You can see on the flowers the lighter shade is in the middle and darker on the edges.

I love the Tic Tac Toe Challenges…they are so much fun! My card for this week’s challenge is a green, fall, friendship card (first column on the left)! Here is the board:For the “fall” element of the card I did a watercolor wash on Shimmery White paper using Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Berry Burst inks. After the color wash dried, I splattered some Berry Burst ink over the paper in little dots.
For the green element I punched leaves using my favorite new Leaf Punch! I use this punch constantly ~ these leaves are so cute and you can just slip them in on any card 🙂 Here I added a few Gold Foil leaves for bling (!) and a few strands of Jute Twine.
And, what is friendship but having coffee with a friend? I love this sentiment from the Coffee Cafe stamp set, and I added a sweet little coffee cup cut from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper.

Yeah, today is Tic Tac Toe day! I really like the Tic Tac Toe Challenge, there are SO many options. I mean, you can choose any one of 9 different options!! Here is this week’s board:For today’s card I chose the left column: pink, circle, vellum. I also used a few of the other items on the board like pattern paper, flower, and gold 🙂
There’s a sneak peek here for you…do you see these darling little leaves? They were punched with the NEW LEAF PUNCH!! And get ready because this punch is available to order starting tomorrow, September 1st! Yeah! I punched the leaves first from Lemon Lime Twist and then from Vellum, laying the Vellum layer on top.
The flowers were cut out with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies. Do you see the little gold dots? Those are on the layer of Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate.
Pretty Pointer: Layer the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate over anything for additional bling! Here it’s layered over some designer series paper. It gives a subtle bit of bling!!

Here is the Tic Tac Toe Board for this week’s challenge. For my card today I used the far left column: burlap, flower, leaf. Click on the board below to go to the website and see what the other designers have created! 🙂
This card has several layers that all combine to give depth and texture. On top of the card base is a layer of Whisper White card stock (5-1/4″ x 4″) bordered with washi tape on the top and bottom, and stamped all over with a cute little dotted stamp that is part of the Painted Harvest set. This gives a sweet background for the main feature!
The main feature is this beautiful sunflower ~ I LOVE it! I stamped it on Whisper White card stock and then fussy cut it with my paper snips. It’s raised up with dimensionals on top of a layer of bulap wrapped back and forth. After I punched the leaves out with the spiffy new leaf punch, I tucked them in behind the flower with a bit of Tombow Multipurpose Glue on the ends.

It’s Thursday and time for another fun Tic Tac Toe Challenge! I really love this challenge…you can choose which items you want to use on your creation as long as they make a tic tac toe! I’ve chosen the first row across: thank you, sequins, all things round.
The Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper is so pretty. The more I use it the more I love it. Look at these beautiful peaches! Really, all you need is this paper to make a great card! For a bit of interest I added a panel of vellum on the left.
Do you see that little bit of Pumpkin Pie 1/4″ Stitched Edge Ribbon? It adds such a nice touch. The sentiment is a stamp from the All Things Thanks set and is stamped on a piece of Shimmery White card stock that has been watercolored with a wash of Crushed Curry ink.
The fun peach on the front was just fussy cut from a small piece of the dsp. I LOVE this paper!!
Pretty Pointer: Adding unexpected items to your card gives interest and surprise. On this card, the ribbon and the cut out peach add surprise elements that appeal to the eye. These bring a “smile” when your friends and family open the envelope. I love knowing that they are smiling when they receive my card 🙂
