Hello, stampers! A second post for me today.... I was recently asked by Felicita to be on the Tic Tac Toe Challenge team! I said yes, and there are a lot of other familiar faces on the design team too! I am happy to be designing with them! Our first challenge of 2020 looks like this, with Shannon as our featured designer:
I used the bottom row across: punch, blue and twine!
I started with some Balmy Blue cardstock and my Timeless Label punch, punching out three labels, then stamping them with Versamark ink, using the wooden image from Gallery Grunge. I tried an old technique to add some light color; I used my Stampin' Pastels (anyone remember them???) and a cotton puff to dab on some color, just to make it stand out a bit! I embossed a panel of Basic Black with the new Coastal Weave EF and layered the labels on top.
I stamped two of the birds from the May Paper Pumpkin kit and fussy-cut them out after giving them a wee bit of color with my Blends. A sentiment from the same kit was stamped in Memento Black and diecut with a Stitched So Sweetly die and tucked under the black panel:
I finished it with some Soft Sky twine, then mounted it on a Smoky Slate mat, a white rectangle-stitched panel, and finally a Balmy Blue card base. I stamped a sentiment from So Sentimental on the inside, along with some speckles and another couple of birds:
I can't wait to see what you create with this tic-tac-toe board!! They're always fun, and they are a great way to get your creative juices flowing when you're stumped for ideas! Stop over at the TTTC blog to see what the others have created and share yours too! Thanks for popping in today! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
