Hugs Tic Tac Toe Challenge #tttc067

June 4, 2020

Today is a special day because it is my birthday!  I had lunch with my girlfriends yesterday and I am off to the beach for a few days with my DIL and grands.  What better way to celebrate.  

It's time for a new challenge at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge!

We hope you will play along with our new board! 

My card is created the using the Top Row:  Hug, Heat Emboss and Rainbow

I used a piece of rainbow paper for my background on a white card base.   I stamped the image from the Simon Says Stamp Follow The Rainbow stamp set in black ink.  I fussy cut the image.  I heat embossed the rain drops and colored them in with a white gel pen.  The sentiment is cut using a "hugs" die.  I cut two black ones to back the rainbow one.  I used the left over strip of paper from the background for the sentiment.  

Please stop by and see all the fabulous cards by the Design Team.  There is so much inspiration!

We hope you will play along with us this week!

My card is created for my nephew.  He is turning 30!  How did that happen?  He is an avid bird watcher!  He takes a lot of pictures and when I found this Tim Holtz camera stamp in my stash, I knew just what I wanted to do.  I found some masculine papers in my stash and followed the sketch to great this card.  I did sponge some distress ink around the camera to make it look aged.  The sentiment says it all.  This card was very easy to put together.  I will be using this sketch again!

Be As Bold As Your Lipstick Paper Players Challenge PP493

May 31, 2020

Can you believe it is the last day of May?  

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The lovely Jaydee is our hostess this week and she has a fabulous Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge for all of us!  I always love these boards.  There are just so many possibilities!  Have fun! 

My card is completed using the Middle Column:  Girly, Die-Cut, Friendship

I love this set, so I decided to make another card with it.  I am a huge fan of lipstick and miss wearing it.  With a mask on, I figure no one can see it so, I don't waste it.  LOL!  I hope we can sport our favorite shade again very soon!

My card is created on a white card base.  I used Mint Macaron behind my " Best Dressed" DSP (Stampin' Up!)  I used an oval stitched dies by MFT for the ovals.  The "Dressed To Impress" (SU) stamp set was used to stamp the lipstick and sentiment !  I added a smear of lipstick in Lovely Lipstick ink.  I colored the tubes with Copic Markers and added Wink of Stella for shine.  A few sparkling clear sequins were added to complete my card.
