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.

Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #7

Happy Friday everyone!! Today I am sharing a card that I created for Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #7.

I chose the last row down for my card, using tag, Kraft, and one potted plant.

I chose to use the Kraft element as the background card stock. I then went through my scraps and grabbed a piece of purple patterned paper that is YEARS old and some purple Bazzill. I used a stitched rectangle die to cut the paper out. I layered the two pieces over the card base and added another scrap of white over them.

Next I die cut a tag using Casual Friday's "Tag Buddies Frie-dies" out of light purple card stock, added a gray piece of Doodlebug Twine at the top of the tag, and adhered it to the card using foam adhesive.

I then adhered a flower and pot that I had colored in with Copic markers and die cut using Sunny Studios "Backyard Bugs" stamp and matching dies. I added a touch of white on the flower with a Signo Uniball gel pen and some sparkle with a clear Wink of Stella over the whole image. I also added some yellow Stickles to the flower center.

I completed the card by adding some sequins by Pretty Pink Posh.

I really love how this came out. I hope you all come on over to Stamping Smiles Design Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge and join us in this challenge.

Have a FABULOUS weekend!!
