Happy Thursday, peeps! Phew, it's the last day of the month!! I love that stamping and creating is a great way to take our minds off things! It's time for a new Tic Tac Toe challenge, and here is our grid by Amy:
I chose the diagonal line of pink, twine and layers to create, sadly, a sympathy card for a friend whose granddaughter lost her battle with cancer earlier in the month. I have seen several cards using one of the borders from the Ornate Layers dies covering the front of a card, creating a lovely pattern, so I thought I would toss my hat in the ring and create a card using some Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla cardstocks:
I cut four of the borders, and I found the easiest way to adhere them is to use some spray adhesive....I got mine at a hardware store, and found a box lid in which to lay my diecuts (upside down, obviously), then sprayed them with the adhesive. (I take mine outside so I don't get adhesive all over my craft room, LOL!) I then applied them to the Blushing Bride mat, alternating the pattern...worked like a charm:
For some additional layers, I stamped a sentiment from Flourishing Phrases (sadly retiring) and used one of the little tags from the Trio of Tags dies to cut it out, then layered it on another filigree panel, diecut from the Ornate Layers dies. I finished it off with some organza flowers that were sponged with a tiny bit of Blushing Bride ink and a swipe of Wink of Stella:
My twine is from a past Paper Pumpkin kit; I wrapped it around the front panel as well as tying it through the two tags. Hopefully it will bring her some comfort in this difficult time.
I hope you'll play along with our Tic Tac Toe challenge...there are lots of possibilities for some spring creations with our grid! Share yours with us over at the TTT blog!
