Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop: Tic Tac Toe

Hi Crafters,

This is my first ever Tic Tac Toe challenge! I'm excited to be participating with other Stampin Up! demonstrators from across the world. If you've just hopped in from Cindy then welcome. Wasn't her project amazing? 😁 Now you're here I hope you enjoy your little visit before hopping off to Sandra

So here's the board. Basically, you just choose a line across, down or diagonal, just like playing noughts & crosses! Those three elements chosen feature on your card. Now which way shall I go .....

Once I'd chosen my line - across the top CHRISTMAS, EMBOSSING, CIRCLE, I experimented with a few different layouts before settling on the one below. I just love the wintery-ness (is that even a word?) about it. The trees have been glittered to add an element of frost.

I used Thick Whisper White (140490) as my card base measuring 11 1/2" x 5 3/4", 
scored at 5 3/4" to create a square card.

The Balmy Blue (147007) layer is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"

The stamped layer is on Shimmery White (121717) card measuring 5" x 5"

The stamp sets I used are: 
Lovely As A Tree (127793) 
Hearts Come Home (145416)
Merry Christmas To All (147702)

I punched a circle from a post-it note to use as a mask for the moon. The video below uses the same measurements, but I used a bigger punch for the moon. 

Other supplies:
Stampin Trimmer ((0129722)
Stamperatus (148187)
Fine Tip Glue (138309)
Stampin Sponges (141337)
1 1/4" circle punch (119861)
Tombow liquid glue (110755)
White Chalk Marker (132133)
Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (133751)
Stampin Write Black pen (100082)

Night of Navy (147110)
Blueberry Bushel (147138)
Balmy Blue (147105)
