It’s Thursday and you know what that means…It’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge! I chose to make a slimline card this week using the Love Cats Stamp Set.
Here’s this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge board that provided the inspiration.
I chose to go down the left side with slimline. three, cute.
Did you notice my elements of 3? (3 hearts and 3 different pieces/patterns of DSP)
The Love Cats stamp set has three “paw-sitively” irresistible felines that are “purr-fect” for the cute element on my card! Take a look at this set which is retiring soon.
I used another cat image on the inside of my card. (I could/should add the third cat at the bottom.)
Everything I used to create today’s card is retiring except the Basic White and Smoky Slate cardstock. The Love Cats stamp set, Blushing Bride cardstock & ink, Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Assortment, White Crinkled Ribbon, Layering Circles Dies, and Slimline Envelopes are retiring.
Here are the details to create this card.
Materials & Measurements
Card Base (Blushing Bride): 7 x 8 1/2 score at 3 1/2
Cardstock Layer (Smoky Slate): Cut 2 @ 3 1/4 x 8 1/4 (Use 1 on inside)
DSP (Subtles 6 x 6 Assortment): 1 1/2 x 5 (cut 2), 3 1/8 x 3
Basic White card stock: 3 1/2 square to stamp image and sentiment then cut with Layering Circles Dies, 3 x 8 (for inside card)
Blushing Bride Cardstock: 3 1/2 square die cut with Layering Circle Dies (*retiring)
My daughter has two cats. They lived with us for many years until she moved. Do you notice anything on her cat in this photo? Let’s see who finds it first…leave a comment below! LOL
She sends me adorable pictures of her fur babies all the time.

Thanks for stopping by and helping me celebrate my 10th anniversary as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator this month. Don’t forget to leave a comment to enter my 10 Days of Giveaways! I love sharing some of my favorite products, exclusive tutorials, card kits and more! Welcome to Day 7! Today’s project is one of my favorite “go to” card designs.
I love the way this floral DSP looks like it could be a field of clover! You can get the 6×6 Designer Series Paper Assortments in all of the different color families (Brights, Neutrals, Regals, Subtles, and In Colors). I used Granny Apple Green from the Brights Collection.
I really like all 4 designs in this year’s assortment packs. I’m a big fan of polka dots and florals and love that I can get them in every color now!
I used the Lucky Clover stamp set to create today’s cards. If you were lucky enough to get the bundle before the punch sold out, good for you! However, if you didn’t, no worries! This is a fun stamp set on it’s own! And you can easily fussy cut the clover if you want.
I remember spending hours when I was young sitting in the grass looking for 4 leaf clovers! (I know for a fact they are hard to find! LOL) Today’s card showcases this stamp set and you don’t need to punch or fussy cut. I like the look when you stamp a sentiment and image on top. I used the Layering Circle Dies to cut the sentiment out and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added the cascading shamrocks with the sentiment on the inside and stamped the envelope to coordinate.
I love this card design for several reasons: it’s quick and easy, showcases the beautiful DSP, and can be used with many different sentiments. It is obvious from the collection of cards below that I use this design a lot!
You can alter the size of the DSP depending on what you are adding. For today’s notecard, I cut my DSP 3×3 so you get 4 cards from 1 6×6 sheet! I added a coordinating cardstock layer that is just 1/8″ larger. Notecards are my favorite for thank you cards and a quick little note when I need to send multiples! You get 20 pre-scored cards & envelopes in a pack! I love to get a big bang for my buck and this does it! I usually add at least one pack of notecards to every order! They come in white or vanilla.
*Tip: For a regular A2 card, cut the DSP 3×4 to get the best use of your 12 x 12 DSP.
My daughter and my sister are visiting this week and we are having so much fun together! I love to make little favors to leave in their rooms or on the dinner table throughout the week. I found a different twist to my pretzel m&m’s recipe that is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. These are made with Rolo candy in the center to keep the “shamrock” together. They are so cute and oh so yummy!!!!!
Click HERE for the link to the recipe. (I used pretzel sticks instead of candy pop sticks.)

I enjoy making cards to send to my customers as a token of my appreciation for their support. I love the 2022-2024 In Colors and chose to highlight these bright happy colors for this years calendar cards. Here’s a look at each of the different colors:
The Dragonfly Garden stamp set has been one of my favorites since it first came out and I thought the sentiment was perfect for these calendars. Stampin’ Up! hits it out of the park when it comes to coordinating products! This project was quick & easy to mass produce using the In Color Designer Series Paper Assortment as well as the In Color Stampin’ Blends to tie it all together.
