Stampin Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #15

It is August 1st so that means a new Stamping Smiles Design Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge!! It is Challenge #15 and this badge is fantastic. I don't know how Ka does it but each badge gets better and better!!

I decided to chose the middle row across for my project-word dies, sparkle and color blocking.

I went for a very simple design for my card this time. I also decided that I was only going to use minimal stamping. Rarely do I do this so this, in itself, just added to the challenge.

I started off by die cutting Pretty Pink Posh's "Storybook #1" die out of scraps of Black Bazzill, "Terracotta Tile," "Raspberry Fizz," and Aqua card stock. I trimmed the black panel, inlaid the different color die cuts inside like a puzzle and taped it on back so all the pieces would stay together.

I then adhered my color blocked rectangle to the center of a gray, A2 sized, top folding card. I used Mama Elephant's "Happy Script" die to die cut the word sentiment out of Die Cuts With a View silver sparkle paper.

I adhered the "happy" to the card. The last step was to add a strip of white card stock that I had stamped a sentiment from Mama Elephant's "Happy Everything" set in black over the die cut using foam adhesive.

I toyed with adding sequins but decided to just stop. Sometimes I can get carried away when a CAS is best.

I hope you hop on over to Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge Blog to play with us. I cannot wait to see what you create!!

Thank you for stopping by. Have a fabulous day!!
