SIP Challenge #70 Tic-Tac-Toe

Good morning! It is so beautiful today here on the east coast! Can you believe we had temps in the 80’s in October???  Well enough about the weather and on to some crafty business hehe!

We have a new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. For this challenge it’s a fun Tic-Tac-Toe board to choose from


Here is what I created 


I started with a Kiwi Kiss card base and created an easel card. I layered a piece of Pumpkin Pie to the front panel and then using one of the dies from the Leaflets Framelits set I cut out the leaf from that front panel. Next I took a piece of vellum and stamped the leaf image from the set Lighthearted Leaves in Stazon black ink and then colored in with my SU markers.  I then layered the vellum on the inside of the front panel so that the image lined up with the opening.  Nexti took a piece of Whisper White and cut with the leaf die and layered it on top of the vellum piece.  Now back to the card front, I placed a strip of burlap on the left side and then bunched some twine and finished with a corduroy button. To finish I stamped the sentiment in a piece of white and then layered it on top of a piece of Kiwi Kiss and placed on the inside panel which gives the top panel a place to rest on when opened. I added a couple sequins to the sentiment piece. When the card is displayed you can use a battery operated tea light to sit inside which will illuminate through the stamped vellum image. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Happy crafting šŸ™‚

SIP Challenge #68 Card Makers Choice

Good morning! We are finally getting some sunshine here in Virginia after a week of steady rain. So I am enjoying the break before we get the storms from the hurricane Matthew. 

It’s Tuesday and I wanted to share my card for this weeks challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  Our challenge is a Card Makers Choice so the possibilities are endless!


Here is my card


I started with a Tangerine Tango card base. For the main layer I started with a piece of Whisper White, first using a circle die cut to mask off the area for the sun, I sponged the background using my Tim Holtz distress inks. Starting at the top I sponged Squeezed Lemonade and then a layer of Wild Honey and finally the bottom area with Rusty Hinge. When I finished sponging I removed the circle die cut to reveal the moon. For the trees I used a stamp set by Sweet n Sassy called Tender Thoughts. I stamped the trees using Stazon black ink. Now I added this stamped layer to a layer of Whisper White and then those layers to a piece of Kraft cardstock and then added these to the card base. Next I die cut the deer using a die from Gina Marie designs and added it to my card using pop dots. To finish I stamped the sentiment from the Tender Thoughts set on white and punched out with the modern label punch and layered on top of yellow and added with pop dots. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. 

Until next time
