TIC TAC TOE CHALLENGE - TTTC195 LOVE

Hello stampin' friends!

Hope you guys are ready for more crafting? We have a new Tic Tac Toe Challenge waiting for you...




Here is the new #TTTC195 board...


I chose the top column across -
DIE CUTS, GOLD AND STENCIL.

Of course I had to put my new Hearts at Home: Toaster Dies from The Greetery  and the matching Hearts at Home Sentiment Set to use. How stinkin' cute is this toaster set? I created the ink blended hearts with the SugarPea Designs - Cute Hearts Stencil. At last I added some Gold Pearls.

Hope you'll come out and play along with us? Please make sure to stop by the TTTC BLOG for all the details and team creations! Wishing you a fabulous day! ~SL~

Inspired BY CHALLENGE- #IB223 CANDY

Good morning and happy February! 

We had some crazy weather here in Texas! Power outages and of course no internet! 

On top of it all, my poor child was rear ended on Tuesday on her way home after school. Of course we are dealing now with the aftermath of  that incident. Happy to say that Miriam was not physically injured…praise the Lord! Did I mention it was a brand new car…yikes…Miriam is super mad at the guy! 

In all this craziness I managed to craft a card for this weeks Inspired By Challenge- #IB223 Candy





Here is this weeks #IB223 inspiration photo, along with/or a sketch for you to try….



My inspiration came from the colors and the hearts ❤️!!! 

Todays card is featuring some new goodies from The Greetery - Heart at Home: Mug Dies and Heart at Home: Sentiments Set, plus the super cute Knit Wits Stencil. 

Hope you’ll have some time to join us this week? Please stop by the INSPIRED BY BLOG for all the details and of course don’t forget to check out all of the team members as well! 

If you like, please come back this afternoon to see another card I have crafted with more new goodies from The Greetery!

INSPIRED BY CHALLENGE - #IB222 DECOR

Happy Thursday! 

Today we have a fun & bright Inspired By Challenge for you!




Here is this weeks #IB222 inspiration photo and/or a sketch for you to try...



My card was inspired by the colors, the chevron and the pitcher/vase.

When I saw the inspiration photo I know I wanted to use my Chevron Stencil I bought a few years ago. The tulip image is from the Flourishes -Tulips for Friends Set (retired). I colored the flowers with various Copic Markers and then fuzzy cut the image. The sentiment is from the Concord & 9th - Harvest Wreath Set. At last I added some Silver Pearls around the sentiment.

Hope we have inspired you to play along?!?  Please stop by the INSPIRED BY BLOG to check out the entire team and this weeks entries!!! Looking forward to see your ideas! ~SL~

INSPIRED BY CHALLENGE - #IB214 REINDEER

Happy 1st DECEMBER!!!! 

Today, I'm stopping by with a fun idea for this weeks Inspired By Challenge - #IB214 Reindeer....




Here is this weeks #IB214 inspiration photo along with a sketch for you to try...



My inspiration came from the cute Reindeer.

I immediately thought of the super stinkin' cute Reindeer Potbellies Dies I bought many moons ago from Papertrey Ink. I just love them.....soooooo fun and they have been sooooo neglected!!! 

I made one with the little treat cup in the center and added the Potbellies Sentiment Mini Set around the treat cup. The second one is a gift tag....I added the heart from the same Mini Set and also added the "A Gift for You" sentiment from the Tagged Elegance Set by The Greetery. Both can be easily attached to a gift bag. 

Now it's your turn! Please stop by the INSPIRED BY BLOG for all the details and all the beautiful samples the team made! Wishing you a wonderful start into December! ~SL~
