Tic Tac Toe 102 A Green Hello

Hi peeps!  Time for a new Tic-Tac-Toe challenge with Betty on Team X as our hostess!  Here's her grid:

I actually made three cards for the challenge!  My first one uses the center column of Shades of Green, Word Diecut and Enamel Dots!  I pulled out some Toile Tidings Christmas DSP in Garden Green along with Forever Fern to get started:

I used the Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch:

I stamped some of the greenery on a piece of Very Vanilla, then added a couple of layers (got the printed DSP in the right direction this time!) and added a diecut sentiment in Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green on top, along with an Old Olive bow and a little Glitter Enamel Dot for fun:

A sentiment from Berry Blessings was stamped on the inside, along with another fern:

My second and third cards use some lovely older CTMH papers...they're so pretty, they don't need much embellishment at all!  This time, I used the top row of Thinking of You Sentiment, Shades of Green and Stenciling:

They are both mounted on Kraft paper card bases.  They also both use stencils from SU, using a Blender Brush and Soft Suede ink.  This one also uses some thick Baker's Twine and a little banner:

Here's a detail of the stenciling:

This one simply uses some Gold Metallic Pearls along with the stenciling.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts:

The eclectic patterns on the paper lend themselves very well to the stenciling!  And I always need encouragement cards, so these will be perfect, and they were easy to make, too!

I hope you'll play along with our Tic-Tac-Toe many different ways to create!  Check out what the DT made at our blog as well!  See you there!

Dana's neighbor took his sons and Cassidy to a neighboring farm to go sledding!

The hill behind the barn looked pretty steep!  I wonder where her hat went????

By the way the snow is flying around her feet, she must have been using them as brakes!!!

I wonder if the cows wanted to go sledding too?!!!  Thanks for popping by today!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Fantastic use of patterned paper, LeAnne! Love the paper and the stenciling!

Donna Scholz said...

LeAnne - all your cards are gorgeous!!! You've inspired me to pull out some of my older pattern paper pads! I love how you used our Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch to create the shades of green card! The "lace" matting around the leaves creates a really wonderful effect! Thank you for sharing your creative talents with us at TSOT!!! -Donna

Fabulous cards, LeAnne - just love the bird dsp, and all these gorgeous greens!
You have COWS??? How did I not know this?

Vicky Hayes said...

These cards are all gorgeous LeAnne but the second and third have blown me away! I love the stencilling and the bird motif and all your little details. Cassidy looks as if she's having the time of her life and no, I don't think the cows would like to go sledding LOL! Vicky x

Heather said...

Beautiful, LeAnne - what a celebration of greens! Perfectly coordinated elements - love that check! Thanks so much for playing at TSOT!
