Building A Sailboat for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #209

This week at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge, I am the featured designer. Here is the challenge board I created.

I started out intending to create a simple card going across the top row with: Decorate Envelope, Patterned Paper, Any Shape. Well, as is usually the case when I’m creating, my project evolves and changes throughout the process.

It’s still a pretty simple card; however, it has several layers and lots of texture! My card has 8 of the 9 elements from the challenge board so I decided I needed to go “all in” and created an origami sailboat to coordinate (Anything But A Card). I had so much fun creating these sailboats I ended up making a whole fleet. (LOL)

I used 3″, 4″, and 5″ squares of DSP to create these. I love the mini 3″ version but the only place I could fit a lifesaver was in between the sail. (LOL) The simple sailboat makes Tic Tac Toe all by itself going down the middle: Patterned Paper, Free, Anything But A Card! How cool is that?!

This card and sailboat is for a friend of mine who loves sailing! She recently had a double lung transplant and is doing remarkably well!! It’s really a miracle to behold! I thought the “lifesavers” were a fitting treat to put in the sailboats. She is looking forward to sailing again once she’s fully recovered. For now we can enjoy watching the Friday night sailing races along the shore.

Here are the details if you would like to create this card.

Card Base – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4  (Thick Basic White)
Layer 1 – 3 3/4 x 5  (Poppy Parade)
Layer 2 – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 (Blueberry Bushel Glorious Gingham DSP)
Layer 3 – 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 banner (Poppy Parade)
Layer 4 – 2 x 4 1/4 strip (Poppy Parade)
Layer 5 – 1 7/8 x 4 1/4 striped DSP (Boho Blue from In Color DSP Assortment)
Layer 6 – 2 1/2″ Stitched Circle cut from Stylish Shapes (Blueberry Bushel)
Layer 7 – 2 3/8″ Punched Circle embossed with waves (Boho Blue)
Sailboat-Punched with Sailboat Builder Punch in Basic White and Pecan Pie
Sail is stamped with sentiment from Go To Greetings in Blueberry Bushel ink.
I used Thick Bakers Twine to create the nautical knot along the top of the banner.
Banner, strip across the middle, and Circle Layer are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Favored Flowers Gift for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge – TTTC197

Happy Thursday! You know what that means… it’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge!  I love these challenges as they get me creating with different elements I might not have used otherwise. Today’s project is a great one! And it’s super simple and quick to create!

I love to make these covered notepads to give as gifts. They are great for a hostess, friend, …really just about anyone! I always bring one to my sister and my daughter when I visit. We love to play card games and are always looking for paper to keep score. Personally, I am lost without my daily “To Do” list! I love that with just some simple decorating I have a pretty notepad on my desk!

I used the gorgeous Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper. There’s only 12 days left to grab this paper for FREE!!! During Sale-A-Bration you can choose a free gift for every $50 you spend. I love this patterned paper!

Coordinating Colors: Basic Black, Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Evening Evergreen, Fresh Freesia, Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink

The Fragrant Flowers Bundle in the Mini Catalog coordinates with this paper. I used the dies from the bundle to cut the flower from the DSP.

The Pretty Flowers embossing folder compliments the floral patterns nicely.

Here are some more 5 x 8 covered notepads I made with different patterns.

For these I used the Go To Greetings Stamp Set. “Just A Note” was perfect for these notepads. I love the different fonts and having different sizes for the each of the sentiments. This really is a “Go To” stamp set!

I used each of the different sizes on my notepads. I did a little fussy cutting one one, added a banner on another, and stamped on DSP. Here’s a look at each.

Here are the details:

  • Cardstock 1: 10 3/8 x 8 (cover) scored at 5 1/16 and 5 5/16, 4 1/4 x 1 1/4
  • Cardstock 2: 4 1/4 x 7 1/4, 4 1/4 x 1 (embossed or use DSP)
  • Designer Series Paper (Favored Flowers): 4 x 7,  die cut flower

I also covered the inside of the notepad. I used cardstock with a DSP strip for one and just DSP for another.

  • Cardstock 2 or DSP (for notepad binding): 2 x 5 scored at 1 and 1 1/4
  • Designer Series Paper (Favored Flowers): 3/4 x 5 (layered strip)

Adhere the cover on the notepad binding before adhering the notepad on the inside. You need to use a strong adhesive to adhere the notepad. I prefer the Multipurpose Liquid Glue for this. *Note-These notepads fit in the Stampin’ Up! 6 x 8 Cellophane Bags which are perfect for gifting!
