Eclectic Layers for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #7

It is obvious I am on vacation time…I didn’t even realize yesterday was Thursday which meant another Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  This week’s challenge board was designed by Teresa DeWitt-Pierce.  Be sure to check out her card (using all 9 elements!) and others at http://www.tictactoechallenge.com. Here’s this week’s challenge board.

I chose the far right row going down: diecut, floral, yellow. How easy is that?!

I could have used any flower (and so can you when you create your card for this week’s challenge) but I just had to go with my favorite daisy. This week’s challenge is a breeze and I really hope you will play along.  I think doing the tic tac toe challenge helps you to be more creative because you try different combinations that you might not have thought of otherwise. And if you are not feeling very creative, just pick 3 and you’ve got what you need to create! It’s fun to see what evolves.

I started with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies because I just got them and couldn’t wait to play! These dies are so versatile and unique…some of the dies emboss! Check out this video to see some of the different possibilities.

Here’s the details for my card this week..

My card base is Basic Black (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4). The Whisper White layer (3 1/2 x 4 3/4) is cut with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits and wrapped with a piece of Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon. I added a piece of Color Theory Designer Series Paper (2 1/4 x 4 1/2) behind the die and adhered is to a piece of Crushed Curry (3 3/4 x 5). The sentiment is from Ribbon of Courage and stamped in Basic Black ink. I stamped and punched two daisies (Crushed Curry) and glued them together before adhering to the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a Gold Faceted Gem in the center.  The Crushed Curry layer is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This card is quick & easy to create! I love the sentiment as it could be used for a birthday, get well, or sympathy card. Here’s a close up showing the Shimmer Ribbon and ombre DSP.

I used the same Color Theory DSP on the coordinating envelope.

I first made it with just a punched daisy then tried it with the stamped version.  I liked both and was not sure which one to showcase.  Which do you prefer…plain or stamped? Leave me a comment as to which one I should post on the tic tac toe challenge.

Stamp Sets: Ribbon of Courage, Daisy Delight  Inks: Basic Black, Crushed Curry  Papers: Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack Tools & Accessories: Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies, Daisy Punch, Black Shimmer Ribbon, Gold Faceted Gems, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Paper Pumpkin Video…July 2017

Summer is at its peak right now, and working with your Positively Picturesque kit is the perfect way to spend some downtime between your fun summer activities. I am enjoying my summer vacation (and getting lots of inspiration for project ideas to share with you)! My paper pumpkin arrived at my home but I am away for another 2 weeks! (My husband sent me a picture of the box to tease me!) I watched the video to see what’s included in this month’s kit and I like what I see…4 different cards this month (you get to make 2 of each)! The kit also includes 2 ink spots, washi tape, wood elements, and more!

Watch this instructional video for tips and tricks!

I look forward to playing with my kit when I get home and seeing what other projects I can make with the contents. Bonus Days is going on now…Order a prepaid 3 month subscription to Paper Pumpkin and earn a coupon for $5 off your Stampin’ Up! order in August.  Click HERE to order.

Check back tomorrow for another fun fold swap card.

Have a wonderful day!

Something Sweet for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #6

It’s Thursday so that means it’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge! It’s fun and easy to play…just pick 3 and create! Here’s this week’s challenge board.

img_4049

I chose the row on the far right going down: square, wrap, woodgrain. Here’s my project.

Sweet Treat holder using Stampin Up Wood Crate Framelits and Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack. For more card and project ideas visit www.juststampin.com

I used the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack to make the crate using the Wood Crate Framelits. The paper stack comes with 48 sheets: 4 each of 12 different 6 x 6 double-sided designs.

Wood Textures DSP
Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack Item #144177 $10

I love that the crate framelit cuts and scores so all you have to do is fold and adhere. Quick & easy!

wood crate framelits
Wood Crate Framelits Item # 143730 $30

The sentiment is from the Cool Treats stamp set stamped on Whisper White using Old Olive and Real Red ink. I cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and layered it with an Old Olive scalloped square cut using the Layering Squares Framelits.  I cut the strawberry from DSP and attached the square with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I filled the crate with Strawberry Ghirardelli  wrapped in a 3 x 6 cellophane bag tied with the new Double-Stitched Ribbon. It makes a “sweet” gift!

Check out this short video showcasing ideas and products from the Wood Textures Suite.

 

As you can see there are many possibilities which makes this suite a “must have”.

It’s A Pattern Party for the PALS Blog Hop

Welcome to the July 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re having a Pattern Party! Hoppers will feature projects using their favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper and coordinating embellishments. After all, color coordination is a Stampin’ Up! Strength.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Stampin Up Pick A Pattern Designer Series Paper, Sunshine Wishes and Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, and Crafting Forever Stamp Set were used to embellish these block letters. Great for Gifts or home office. For more card and gift inspiration visit www.juststampin.com.

Paper, crafts, and glue are my everyday life! (In addition to stamping, I am a Pre-K teacher.) It was love at first sight when I saw this paper from Pick A Pattern Designer Series Paper!

DSP Pick a Pattern

This was a really easy project to do with some store bought letters! I simply traced my initials (which also stand for my blog, Just Stampin’) and cut them out.  I adhered them to the block letters using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. (I used the bold tip end to spread the glue evenly.) I embellished them with some ribbon and die cuts. The sentiment is from one of my favorite stamp sets, Crafting Forever. I popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This would make a great gift for teachers, friends, family, kids, anyone! Stampin’ Up! has so many patterned papers to choose from! How cute would it be to decorate a child’s name with pattern paper?! My son loved dinosaurs and there is a cool dinosaur pattern in this same paper pack. You could use the camera paper for a scrapbooker or photographer in your life or choose a pattern from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper Pack for the coffee lover at work or home. You could even let the recipient color their own using the Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper. There’s so many possibilities! Check out this quick video from Stampin’ Up! showcasing some of the different designer series paper.

Time to Plan Ahead

Today I have a quick video for you showcasing a new item in the annual catalog that I just love, the Love Today Planner Kit. Check it out!

I am a planner!  And unlike so many others that do everything on their phone these days, I still like to write it all down and see everything month to month and day to day. Not sure if it is the teacher in me or just that I like notes and checklists…it gives me a sense of accomplishment. This planner will help keep you on schedule and give you a creative outlet too! This all-inclusive kit has everything you need to create a customizable yearly planner.  No dates are printed, so you can start when you want. I had a plain old planner I used for my blog the first year and I am so looking forward to using this one to plan out my year ahead. I’ve already started marking some dates for upcoming blog posts to share with you. If there’s something you’d really like to see on my blog in the year ahead please leave a comment. I’ll be taking this with me everywhere so I can jot down notes and thoughts so I don’t forget a thing.  Click HERE to order yours today!

Love Today Planner 2

Be sure to check back tomorrow for the PALS Blog Hop!

Have a wonderful day!

A Mini Treat Bag for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #4

img_4096

It’s Thursday so that means it’s time to play Tic Tac Toe!  I am so excited to be the designer for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  Of course my Tic Tac Toe Challenge is an abc board.  I hope you will pick 3 and play along! We have extended the contest until Tuesday at noon (CST) to enter. You do not need a blog to play along. Click HERE for all the details. Here’s this week’s challenge board.

TTTC004

I used all 9 elements on my project this week. Can you find them?

img_4045

I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die to make a gift card holder. I embossed the bag using the Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The DSP is from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack. Happy Birthday is heat embossed using Dapper Denim Ink , VersaMark, and Clear Embossing Powder. (I love this shade of blue.) I colored the flowers using my blender pen and In Color Inks in Dapper Denim and Lemon Lime Twist. I added a Perfect White Accent to my ribbon.

The mini treat bag is so easy to make using the dies.  Check out this short video to see how to put it together as well as some of the different projects you can make using these dies.

I love the versatility of these dies! Know what else I LOVE…the new 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Layered Leaves!!! You can create deep, dimensional embossed impressions so quick & easy.  It is a little different process to emboss because it is a thick folder. You need to spritz the paper first with water to get a deep impression.  Here’s a quick (3 min.) video explaining how it works and how to make your embossing “sandwich”.

I love the final results and can see using this embossing folder again and again.  It really adds a quick & easy WOW to any project!

Stamp Set: Label Me Pretty  Ink: Dapper Denim, Lemon Lime Twist, VersaMark  Papers: Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim, Shimmery White, Whisper White, Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper  Tools & Accessories: Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies, Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Pretty Label Punch, Clear Embossing Powder, Blender Pen, Stampin’ Spritzer, Lemon Lime Twist Finely Woven Ribbon, Dapper Denim Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Dapper Denim Baker’s Twine, Perfect White Accent, Tear & Tape, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Hole Punch

I hope you will play along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge. It is really easy and fun to do!  I had never done a challenge before the TTTC and couldn’t believe how easy it is to create by simply choosing the elements from the challenge board. I knew I wanted to use the In Colors so I pulled the In Color DSP and Dapper Denim (for blue) and decided that I liked Lemon Lime Twist with the blue. I decided to include “gift” from the board and I immediately thought of a gift card holder. All I had to do was choose a stamp set and cardstock and let the items dictate what I create.  It is a fun way to make something different.  I am amazed at how quick & easy it is to come up with an idea when you have the items right in front of you. I did not start out intending to use all 9 elements but it just came together once I started to create using the different elements in front of me. Give it a try! Click HERE to see what the design team and others created this week.
