TIC TAC TOE CHALLENGE - TTTC133 HELLO FRIEND

Hello again!

As promised I'm back with a second card....this one is for the newest Tic Tac Toe Challenge - #TTTC133.....




Here is this weeks #TTTC133 inspiration board that I created for you to use....

For my card I chose the middle column - BLACK, STRIPES, AND WREATH.

I'm loving this new Rustic Wreath Set and the matching Dies from The Greetery. I matched it up with the Curio: Autumn Findings Dies. The images were colored with Copic Markers. The sentiment and die in the center are from the Harvest Wreath Bundle from Concord & 9th. Next I embellished the card with the Design Paper, Ribbon and the Gold Pearls

Hope you have time to join us? Wishing you a wonderful remaining day! ~SL~

INSPIRED BY - #IB189 ALL THE PEELS

Hello and happy Thursday to you!

We still have "two" inspiration photos plus a sketch for you to try - #IB189 ....



I chose elements from both photos....as you can tell I took the "red color" from the first photo and went with the Christmas theme - Wreath & Gingham print - from the second photo. 

For this card I pulled out the oooooh so fabulous new Rustic Wreath Set and matching Dies from The Greetery. The pretty florals are from the Hoop Wreath Set also from The Greetery. The sentiment is from an old retired set and it was perfect for the center. Next I embellished the card with the Design Paper, Ribbon, Button and of course the pretty Silver Pearls...voila!

Hope all these inspirations will get your creative juices flowing and you will join us for this challenge!!!

TIC TAC TOE CHALLENGE - #TTTC131 JUST A NOTE

Hello again...

So happy you came to check out my second card of the day. This card is for this weeks Tic Tac Toe Challenge....




Here is this weeks #TTTC131 board....


I chose the middle column - DIE CUTS, COLORING, WOOD

My card features the beautiful Floral Delicacy Set from The Greetery as well as the matching Die Cuts. The "Wood Frame" was created with the Curio Cover Die also from The Greetery. I also colored the frame with some old SU Watercolor Pencils to darken the Wood Frame. At the end I added some Copic Opaque White Dots and some Silver Pearls.

INSPIRED BY - #IB187 HELLO HOLIDAY

Happy Thursday!

Hope you are having a great week and you'll have some time to join us for this weeks Inspired By Challenge?!? 




Don't forget.. that you are still having TWO inspiration options...I chose this inspiration photo #IB187C  along with this weeks SKETCH..... 



My inspiration came from the wreath, the wooden background and the Christmas theme.

For this card I decided to pull out the beautiful PTI - Season of Joy Set as well as the matching dies. The card came together pretty fast since I was simply following this weeks sketch layout. Not to mention the fab Red Shiny Paper.... I think the Bold Letters are a great statement and focal point. At last I added the "Poinsettia" from the PTI - Tag Creations: Modern Gift Die and placed a Gold Pearl in the center plus some smaller ones on the right corner.

Thank you for stopping by today...I have another card for you in the afternoon!!! Wishing you a wonderful day! ~SL~
