Good morning everyone. Today is the day for another BS & J Productions Stamp Off Challenge. This time we have a Tic Tac Toe Challenge. This is where we have to create something using products in a straight line. It can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal. I decided to go right across the middle and use Pumpkin Pie, Shaded Spruce and Daffodil Delight.
Here is my card.
I used the stamp set called First Frost. This set is in the 2018 Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalog. It has a set of matching dies called Frosted Bouquet Framelits and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.
To make this card I first stamped the flowers in Daffodil Delight and the buds in Pumpkin Pie ink and cut them out using the Framelits. Then I stamped the leaves in Shaded Spruce twice and cut them out using the die. Lastly I cut out the little berries in Whisper White cardstock twice. Then I just layered them all together until I liked how they were arranged and adhered them to the card. To share a little tip I learned, if you get an arrangement of stamps you like and then don’t want to mess them up, just layer a piece of Press ‘N Seal over the top and rub. The pieces will all stick to the Press ‘N Seal exactly how you arranged them. Then you just lift them up and add adhesive onto the back of the pieces and adhered them to the cardstock all at once. Then just peel off the Press ‘N Seal. It works perfectly!
To make the sentiment I used the dies that are included in the set. The dies were a little too big for my sentiment so I cut them down. First I stamped the sentiment is Shaded Spruce onto Whisper White cardstock. Then I put it on my Big Shot and ran it through with the die like this:
Then I ran it through again with the die like this:
This is how it turned out.
I did the same thing with the larger die and Pumpkin Pie cardstock.
Now let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie made using this Tic Tac Toe board. I love seeing how they make projects that are so different from mine and each other’s.
Thanks for the tip for cutting the sentiment. Cute card.
Oh susan, This is beautiful!! The colors make this such a rich card and I love the layout
Oh – that was a great row to use! Beautiful card. And thank for the Press & Seal and cutting tips.
Such a beautiful card, Susan! And what a great tip about the press & seal – I’ll have to remember that one!
