Happy Snowflake -Tic Tac Toe #140 - Guest Designer

Hello there!  

I have a special post today.  I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week, TTTC #140!  I want to thank the whole TTTC Design Team for the opportunity to Guest with them.  This board gave me so many ideas I couldn't decide at first which column or row to choose.  

In the end, I chose the first column with Plaid, Layers and Die Cut to make my card.

I used some new dies by Pink and Main, that I bought recently, for my card. The Peppermint cover die is with what my background is created with some cute plaid patterned paper, by My Favorite Things, peeking through. That awesome layered/stacked snowflake dies are also from Pink and Main.  The snowflake layers are cut from cardstock I inked up using my Catherine Pooler inks in Deck The Halls, Rockin' Red, Lime Rickey and Be Mine.  They matched perfectly with the plaid paper.  The sentiment die is also by Catherine Pooler Designs.

I had so much fun playing in this challenge, I made another card to play along again as well. Look for it a little later!

I hope you will check out the Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week.  There is a new board every Thursday with lots of exciting elements to choose. And if you're like me and sometimes stuck on what to create, this challenge is a great jumping off point to get those creative juices flowing again.

I am also playing this card in a couple other challenges:

Leafy Thanks


Good Evening!

I have a quick post tonight. I've been trying to make cards using my already made backgrounds. This card features a panel of foiled leaves I created using my new Glimmer Hot Foil System by Spellbinders.  Back in the spring (way too long ago), Bonnie Klass and I got together and played around with our hot foil systems and plates.  

I used a leaf foil plate I had also gotten from Spellbinders and foiled it on burgundy cardstock.  Along with the foiled panel, I used a leaf embossing folder by Carta Bella, embossing some heavy white cardstock.  Then, I gently ran a Versamark ink pad and brushing gold Perfect Pearls across the panel to add some shimmer.  Next I trimmed down the panel and adhered it to a cardbase and adding the foiled panel on top.  The last touch was a "thanks" sentiment die cut (Catherine Pooler Designs) in gold foiled cardstock, gluing it in the middle and adding some shimmery gems for even more sparkle.

I really like the final product and how the slight shimmer of the Perfect Pearls is just enough to enhance the Glimmer foiled leaf panel.

For Following Challenges:

I made this card specifically for the Just Add Ink challenge this week:

I used a Glimmer foiled die, shimmery Perfect Pearls, and foil cardstock.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit to my blog.  I hope you come back again.

Glimmer, Shimmered Blessings!
