Tic-Tac-Toe

Simon Says Stamp has a group on Flickr and here they do fun challenges and I’ve joined in the 2nd challenge: Tic-Tac-Toe where you chose a row from the picture above and create a card based on your choice.

For this card I chose this row: Polka Dots, Autumn, Leaves. I stamped the background using a PTI background stamp and then I created a cluster of leaves, banner, thread and stars in the corner of the card.

My sentiment is almost never placed on an angle but for this card I think it works. Since I also made this card work for a Work It Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp where you had to use the following autum colours: Khaki, Dark Chocolate, Burnt Orange and Olive.

PTI Blog Hop September 2014

6a00d8341c64e753ef01a73e16dd18970d-450wi 6a00d8341c64e753ef01b8d06ae2d5970c-450wi

Today is the day of the monthly PTI blog hop and I am joining in this time around. I chose the sketch and colour combination seen above for my card but instead of going for an autumn themed card, I decided to do a Christmas card.


This is my interpretation of the sketch and the colour combination: Obviously I went a little larger with the banner and decorations and I didn’t do a flower but the cluster of bells and bows.


I used a stamp from Love lives here: Holiday to stamp the background. When I had stamped all over my background I felt there where some empty spaces in the pattern that needed filling. That lead me to cutting a tiny heart out of one of the other stamps in the same set and use it to fill in the empty spaces. It is so cool that you can cut clear stamps up without damaging them.


I stamped the bells using VersaMark and then I heat embossed them using a fine silver embossing powder. Some of the finer details on the smaller of the two bells disappear but I really like how the silver came out.
