SSD tic-tac-toe challenge #7

Challenge 7

Here is what I made for this challenge:

I chose the middle row: decorative frames, hat, and craft.

Here’s how I created my card:

  1. I used MFT’s stitched square scalloped frames die to cut out a frame from blue glitter cardstock.  I also cut out 2 more from white cardstock, and glued them all together to beef up the frame and give it a more dimensional look.
  2. On a piece of watercolor paper, I used Tim Holtz distress inks to watercolor a watery background.  Then, I set it aside to dry.
  3. On a piece of bristol white cardstock, I stamped the turtle and the birthday hat from Lawn Fawn’s year two stamp set with Memento tuxedo black ink.  Using copic markers, I colored in the images.  Then, I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images.
  4. I glued the frame to my watercolor background, cutting off the excess.  Then, I adhered it to a craft card base that I made.
  5. Using tiny foam squares, I adhered the turtle and her hat.
  6. I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s chit chat stamp set to the background.
  7. To finish off my card, I added some sequins and pink baker’s twine.

That’s it for me!  Hope you like my card!

Happy Friday!

SSD Tic-Tac-Toe challenge #6

For my project, I chose the middle column for inspiration:  glossy accents, clean and simple, and twine.

Here’s what I created:

Here’s how I made my card:

  1. I stamped out the clam image from Lawn Fawn’s Year Six stamp set on white cardstock with Memento tuxedo black ink.  I colored them in using copic markers, a white gel pen, and a spectrum noir clear glitter pen.
  2. Using the matching Lawn Fawn die, I die cut the clams, and set aside.
  3. I die cut a scalloped rectangle out of white cardstock using WPlus9’s sunshine layers die.  Then, I stamped the sentiment from the same Lawn Fawn Year Six stamp set.
  4. I attached the clams onto my card.  I popped up the pink clamp with foam tape.
  5. I tied some twine around the scalloped rectangle.
  6. I popped the whole scalloped panel up with some foam tape, and adhered it to an A2 sized card base that I made out of pink cardstock.
  7. To finish off, I added glossy accents to the pink clam.  I also added “water droplets” with glossy accents, but it’s hard to see in the picture.  (There are three on each size of the sentiment, and one to the bottom left of the pink clam.)

I hope you like my card!  Don’t forget to join in this challenge and link up your project on the TTT challenge blog!

Happy Wednesday!

Stamping Smiles Design Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #5

Hey guys!  Today, I created a card for Stamping Smiles Design’s newest Tic Tac Toe challenge #5.  You can find out more info on the challenge blog!

Here is challenge #5:

Challenge 5Challenge 5 Photo Inspiration

Here is what I created for this challenge:

I chose 3 elements in a row and diagonal.

I worked in: geometric shapes, layers, & photo inspiration, and photo inspiration, gold, & green.

Here’s how I made my card:

  1. I stamped the geometric Pinkfresh Studio doodle background stamp 2x on my white cardstock using Versamark ink with the help of my MISTI stamping tool.  I heat set the image with Wow white embossing powder.
  2. I used Tim Holtz’s newer green distress ink color in twisted citron to water color over my stamped image.
  3. Using a large circle die, I cut out a large circle from my geometric panel.
  4. I popped up the geometric panel using foam tape and adhered it to a white card base panel to add a layer and create dimension.
  5. I was inspired by the photo, and decided to create my own 4 leaf clover using green hearts.  First, I water colored on some white cardstock using Tim Holtz green distress inks in twisted citron and lucky clover.
  6. Once dry, I die cut 4 hearts using the smallest heart from Lawn Fawn’s stitched heart stackables.
  7. I attached the hearts inside the circle using a combination of glue dots and foam squares.  Then, I added some detail with a white gel pen.
  8. In the middle of my clover, I added a gold “kiss me” heart from Crate Paper’s Hello Love gold heart resin stickers.
  9. To finish off my card, I added some gold sequins.  I used Mint Owl Studio’s 6 mm gold sequins and Lucy’s Cards champagne mix.  I also added a few splashes of Heidi Swapp’s shine mist in gold.
