Tic Tac Toe 7.1.17

Hello my dear stampers! I’m joining a new sharing group called Tic Tac Toe. We are given a tic tac toe board to use to create a new card. This is my first attempt  – my row is Blue, Embossing, Happy.  I thought it sounded like fun. 

I wanted to create a card that could be used for a male without being totally masculine. It’s not too fussy and I like the way it turned out.

You may notice that the front panel has NO stamping! Don’t worry…I’ll use some stamping on the inside…right now I’m not sure who this is for so I’ll hold off on the sentiment.

The Happy Birthday is ‘popped up’ with Stampin’ Dimensionals. We now have Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals as well as Foam Adhesive Strips. That makes life a lot easier!

Since we’re about to celebrate the 4th of July I thought this card could have some patriotic colors by filling in the spaces of the Swirly Scribbles die with Real Red. Just a thought. 🙂

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Paper – Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Whisper White, Gold Glimmer Paper

Accessories – Sparkly Embossing Folder, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, Happy Birthday Thinlit, Star Punch from Itty Bitty Accents (R)

 

I’m very pleased with how this card turned out. Of course you will think of ways to step it up to meet your needs and likes.

Let me know what you think of my Tic Tac Toe card. 

Happy Stamping!     Donna

 

Easter Message

Happy Friday, stampers! End of another week that went by all too fast. I did get in a lot of card making this week. I’m busy working on my swaps for the Pals swap at the Stampin’ Up! On Stage here in San Diego on April 8th. Three of us San Diego Pals are hosting a Make & Take with fellow Pals on Friday so I’m also prepping kits for that event. Busy, busy!

Hope you had a great week and did find time to stamp, scrap or make cards. Today I’m using the new set Easter Message for a religious Easter Card. This set is just lovely.

I only used the one stamp set to make this card. It’s a keeper for sure.

This photo gives you a better look at the embossing on the Soft Sky cardstock.

Simple message inside…also from Easter Message Stamp Set along with the palm frons. The blooming of our flowers helps make this a spring card.
