A Card Sketch for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #26

I look forward to Thursdays! I love seeing how others interpret the Tic Tac Toe Challenge board each week. Here’s this week’s challenge board.

No automatic alt text available.

I was intrigued by the sketch element this week and decided to use that in my design. When I first started stamping I would draw sketches of cards I saw and liked.  (Who knew I could just google card sketches and have tons of samples to choose from?! Obviously not me at the time.) This is one of my favorites.

Mojo Monday - The Blog

To me, this is a classic, quick & easy, go to sketch. You can punch the circles or cut them with dies.  You can cut patterned paper or stamp images and sentiments…so many possibilities! Here’s my card.

I chose the far right row going down: chevron, sketch, acorn. I used the 2 1/4″ Circle Punch to cut the chevron and acorn designs from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper pack. The sentiment is from the Painted Harvest stamp set and stamped in Early Espresso ink. I used the new Stampin Blends to color the acorn and leaves from COunt My Blessings stamp set. I love coloring with the Blends! They are so easy to work with! I used Crumb Cake, Old Olive, and Bronze to color then fussy cut it out and attached to my card with Stampin Dimensionals. *Quick Tip: Put a piece of scrap paper under your project when you are coloring with the Stampin’ Blends. (I put a post it note inside my envelope to prevent my ink from bleeding through while I was coloring.) Here’s my envelope to match.

Thankful for my Stampin’ Sisters

When I joined Stampin’ Up! 4 years ago I never dreamed how much it would enrich my life. Stampin’ Up! is much more than a company with great papercrafting products. It is a community filled with amazing people with the biggest hearts. I am ever so grateful for the kindness and support from my “Stampin’ Sisters” following the loss of a dear friend. I have been busy making thank you cards this weekend.

This clean and simple card is made with some of my favorite things. I absolutely love the Painted Harvest Bundle in the Holiday Catalog!  The good news is the Painted Harvest stamp set and leaf punch will carry over after the holiday catalog retires on January 2nd.  However, you will no longer be able to purchase it as a bundle (and save 10%) after Jan. 2nd! (If you don’t already own this set, you can save even more by purchasing it tomorrow during the 24 hours of Free shipping!)

The base of my card is my favorite go to for thank you cards, Stampin’ Up! Note Cards and Envelopes! Biggest bang for your buck (20 note cards & envelopes for $6)! I embossed the envelope flap and very vanilla layer on my card with the Layered Leaves embossing folder (another one of my favorite items). I adhered the burlap ribbon with a strip of Tear & Tape and punched two leaves from Old Olive cardstock.  The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake ink, punched out with the Pretty Label Punch, and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Quick & easy with a little added texture!

Here are some beautiful flowers, cards, and gifts I received from team members and friends.

Painted Autumn Fun Fold for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #16

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn! Autumn officially begins tomorrow and I have an easy fun fold card to share with you as we welcome a new season.  Here is my Autumn card for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.

Stampin Up Painted Autumn Fall/Thanksgiving fun fold card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s this week’s challenge board.

I chose elements going across the top row: metallic, glow, and autumn colors. I tried to get a photo so you could see the “glow”. I used a battery tea light in the back which shines through the vellum. You could easily place this near a light and get the same effect.

This fun fold card measures 4 1/4 x 8 and is scored at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 5 1/2, 6 3/4.  I love the mix of fall colors in the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! For ideas and ordering visit www.juststampin.com
Coordinating colors: Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Garden Green, Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla

The DSP strips on each side measure 1 x 4 and the center piece measures 2 3/4 x 4.  I adhered the DSP to the cardstock then used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut the leaf out through both layers. I sponged a piece of vellum using Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Lemon Lime Twist inks.  I adhered the vellum to the back of the card using glue dots.  (You can see in the photo above how I framed the back of the vellum using the Layering Squares Framelits to give it  finished look.)

I am thrilled Stampin’ Up brought back the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets! What a difference it makes in adhering the detailed dies.  I adhered a piece of Copper Metallic Foil to the Multipurpose Adhesive before cutting it with out with the detailed leaf die. It was so easy to just peel the backing and adhere to the vellum inside the framelit. If you haven’t tried the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets you need to put them on your next order…they are a must have for anyone who has dies!

 

I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on Very Vanilla cardstock. I flagged the end and added a small banner in copper foil. I wrapped the Copper Trim and tied a bow on the end. The banner is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I love the change of seasons and I’m ready for cool evenings and campfires on the patio. What do you like to do in the fall? I hope you will play along with this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  You can click Here to see what the other designers created this week to inspire you.
