Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge Creative Fools Blog Hop

Hello there!! This is my second post for today.  (If you are looking for the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #7 post, please click here.)

We have been planning the Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe "Creative Fools" Blog Hop for months and I hope you enjoy it.


The design team is featuring cards that are "punny" in nature. You have from today, 9:00 a.m. Friday, April 1, 2016 until 12:00 p.m. Sunday, April 3, 2016 to hop with us.

Here is the second card I created for the hop.


I have to admit, I cheated a little bit. I will let you in on that a little later, though.


I used the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge Badge #1 for my card. I used the top row-goldsparkles and acetate.


I started off by stamping the "Celeste Set" stamp from Art Impressions in black dye ink and die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle die. I then colored her in using Copic Markers, with the exception of the shoes. I used a Gold Wink of Stella pen over the shoes.


After coloring, I adhered the stamped panel toa 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" top folding white card that I had covered in a piece of Basic Gray patterned paper from the "Aurora" collection.


Here is where the fun began!! I added Wink of Stella to Celeste's leopard print shirt and Diamond Stickles to her earring for some sparkle. Then here is where I cheated. I attempted to make the glass out of acetate but failed. Instead, I covered it with clear Wink of Stella and some Glossy Accents.


I loved the card so much when it was completed that I colored three more panels in a similar fashion. I have yet to make them into cards, but will take a photo when I do.

Now here is the fun part!!  I am offering a prize for my readers. Leave a comment on my blog and I will pick a winner from the commenters. I will be posting the winner on Tuesday, April 5, 2016.



Please hop on over to the other design team members to see their fabulous creations. The next on the hop is Lindsey Larsen.

Oh my! I'm not sure what I love most about this card....the funny sentiment, that leopard print top, the wedge sandals, or her cats eye glasses. Okay, it's the leopard top, haha! I can see why you made multiples of this great image!!
