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

Sweet Swirls

Hello Stampers. Today I’m working with the stamp set Swirly Bird. I’m soooo happy that it will be staying with us for another year since I really haven’t explored all the things I can do with that set yet. I love the coordinating thinlits, Swirly Scribbles too.

I decided to make today’s design for my Mother’s Day card for my mom (who just turned 94 on May 4th). I always make very feminine and lacy ones for her so this is a change.

I think she will like this card (she likes all my cards anyway). I really like Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry together!

 

I just had to use these sentiments from the retired set called Wonderful Mother. I will never part with that set.

 

Instead of using rhinestones or pearls I tried the White Perfect Accents. They have not been retired so I’ll have more time to play with them.

Sorry about the green background. It looked good until I posted these photos and now I’m not too crazy about it. I’m always experimenting with the photo process.

Hope you are all happy and healthy. It seems there are some cold and stomach bugs around again. Take care of yourselves and …

Happy Stamping!
