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.

New Painted Harvest Sneak Peek for Tic Tac Toe!

Today is a Tic Tac Toe Challenge day and I have a sneak peek for you! I want to show you my FAVORITE stamp set in the new Holiday Catalog! Yes, I know you’re thinking it should be a Christmas holiday set, but this fabulous fall set has stolen my heart!

The set is called Painted Harvest and it comes as a bundle with a great new leaf punch! This bundle will be available starting September 1st. Do you have a copy of the Holiday Catalog? All of my current customers receive a FREE catalog in the mail. If you would like one, simply place an order in my online store HERE, and I will send out your catalog right away!

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.

Whole Lot of Lovely Thank You!

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 🙂

Please pop over to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge page and see what the other designers have done with this challenge board! Better yet, enter your own card and join the fun!

Bright and Bold Daisy for Tic Tac Toe!

Today is another Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and it’s super fun! Here’s our challenge board:

For my card today I’ve picked the last column on the right: diecut, floral, yellow. I’ve used the popular Daisy Punch as the focal point 🙂

The Whole Lot of Lovely designer series paper makes a beautiful background for the yellow daisy! I love black and yellow together, don’t you?  The background on the top of the card is Watercolor Paper with a Daffodil Delight wash.

Pretty Pointer: Create a quick and soft background by lightly washing over some Watercolor Paper. I use an Aqua Painter and pull a little color from the lid of an ink pad. When the pad is closed, press the top and bottom together (squeeze the closed pad). This will transfer some of the ink from the pad to the lid. When you open the pad you have some ink ready in the lid. Grab a bit of this ink with the Aqua Painter and run it across the paper for a soft wash!

Here are all the items I used to make my card today.

Truthfully, I’m just getting this post in. Yesterday was a crazy day here. The power went out in half of our house and we had to have an electrician come fix it. (I’m so thankful that my son-in-law is an electrician! He was so sweet to come after work and fix our problem!). And, I just returned from a little trip to Pennsylvania and I left my computer power cord there! Aaaagh!! I have to run out shortly and get a new power cord. Right now I’m down to very little power, so I’m going to post this now and come back and add a few things when I get my new cord! But this card is so cheery, I just had to get it posted for you!

And, don’t forget about the $5 Bonus Coupon you can receive for every $50 order! Only available until July 31st…don’t miss it!

Thanks for stopping by today, and be sure to pop over to our Tic Tac Toe Challenge and enter your card! Which row or column will you use??

Today is the Perfect Day to be Happy! (ttt005)

Today is another exciting Tic Tac Toe Challenge! These challenge boards are so much fun. I love the fact that we get to choose the elements we want to use! For my card I’ve chosen the top row across: circle – summer – ribbon.

For the circle element I actually used two circles. The lower circle is punched out with the Sunburst Punch, and the inside circle was die-cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Pretty Pointer:  Framing your sentiment always makes a statement. Whether your sentiment is on a square shape, a circle, or an oval, add a framing layer either in front or behind your sentiment piece. It will add a finished look to your project.

For the summer element I used the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. This particular sheet of dsp has a light summery look which is perfect!

Ribbon, beautiful ribbon! That’s one reason I chose the top row across the tic tac toe board…I really love ribbon! In yesterday’s post I told you that the 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding is my absolute favorite ribbon in the new Annual Catalog 🙂  So when I have the opportunity to choose ribbon, I HAVE TO use my favorite, right???

So what about you? Will you come over and join us? The Tic Tac Toe Challenge is fun and easy and we would love for you to enter! I’ll look for you over there at tictactoechallenge.com!
