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.
