LOVE--Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #84 NBUS #10

February 5, 2017

I am rushing to get this posted before the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge closes!  I think I have one hour left to post.  YIKES!

I love a good Tic-Tac-Toe board and my lovely friend LeAnne is the hostess this week.  

I am also entering this card in the NBUS Challenge by the multi talented Darnell!  She is so funny and I just love to visit her blog!  By the way, NBUS means "Never Before Used Schtuff"!  

My friend,  Laurie Schmidt at Stamping Up North created a card that I loved.  I had to order the dies.  I CASed her card but recreated it to match the board.  I used the middle column. Red, Baker's Twine and a Circular Element on my card.  

This card reminded me of the 70's.  I love all the retro things from this time period.  I used a white card base.  I cut the rectangle and circle with stitched dies.  I found scraps in my Valentine box for the background and circle.  The Love die, the flowers and the hearts are from Cherry Lynn Designs.  I added an enamel dot and Baker's Twine to complete my card.

THANKS for stopping by.  I am off to watch the Super Bowl.  Sure hope the Atlanta Falcons win tonight!



  1. Hi Claire. I saw this card on Darnell's NBUS Challenge. It's adorable!!! I LOVE the layout!!

  2. So cute Claire!! I like your design....the 70's were so much fun:)!

  3. Oh, dear, you must have been devastated by that loss, Claire! We were rooting for the Falcons, too, and watched in shock at what happened!! On to happier things: I adore your color block retro card of LOVE!! Those "candy" hearts took me all the way back to my childhood, which was a bit (ahem) before the 70s! Thank you very much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #10! Hugs, Darnell
