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!

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!
