Sweet & Sassy for #tttc031

Today I played along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #031.  Make sure to head over and play along!  For this challenge, the board was created by Design Team Member Peggy Noe.  Take some inspiration from the challenge board below, using three elements in a row of your choice. Whatever row inspires you is what you are challenged to create! 
I chose the three squares on the left hand side of the board using Pink, Doily and Sequins! I decided to use the Sweet & Sassy Framelits from Stampin' Up! to make a fun shaker card.
First I cut out the top heart layer using my big shot in Rich Razzleberry, see photo for placement.  Then I cut out the larger heart again using the polka dot window sheet.
I attached the clear window heart to the larger heart frame with my fine tip glue pen.  Then I attached the smaller heart to the center of my card front and then lined the foam adhesive strips around the outside of the small heart.  Then I sprinkled some sequins inside small heart.  Finally I attached the clear window sheet over the top of the small heart over the foam strips to create the shaker.
I used Pink Pirouette card stock to stamp the sentiment from the Birthday Banners Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink.  I punched it out with the Duet Banner Punch to give that added depth to the sentiment.  I added a little strip of Washi Tape in Rich Razzleberry from the Washi Tape Basics Pack 1.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Here are the Stampin' Up! products I used for today's project...

Kylie's January International Highlights

http://www.craftykylie.com/2017/07/kylies-international-blog-highlights.html
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I am joining a group that is being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project.

Our Theme in January is Favorite Sale-A-Bration Or Occasions Catalog Products! There are so many fun things in these catalogs it was so very difficult to choose just one!  So, I chose a few things for my project today.
The first thing I saw in the Occasions Catalog was the Birthday Wishes For You stamp set. How can you miss it?  It's on page 3!  I just love it :)
I decided to try using my Stampin' Blends markers to make an ombre' effect with this stamp.  Now what color to use, well that was easy to decide too.  
I absolutely love the Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes from the Sale-A-Bration catalog! And you can get them for free when you spend $50.  They match perfectly with the Bubble & Fizz Designer Paper in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Another free item you can choose with your $50 purchase.
These are so much fun to make and send.  I hope you get a chance to use this stamp set and try out the ombre' technique with your markers.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today make sure you head over to Kylie's blog to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.  Here are all of the products I used for this card:

Southern Serenade for #tttc030

Today I played along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #030.  Make sure to head over and play along!  For this challenge, the board was created by Design Team Member Nicole Watt.  Take some inspiration from the challenge board below, using three elements in a row of your choice. Whatever row inspires you is what you are challenged to create! 
I chose the trio across the top of the board using Vintage, Pearls and Floral! I was just waiting to find a reason to ink up the Southern Serenade stamp set and this was perfect.  What doesn't say vintage to you about the Southern Serenade Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!?
I used some of the Powder Pink Fresh Florals Design Series Paper as a background piece.  I stamped the lace in basic gray on scratch paper and then stamped it onto the Powder Pink background piece for that added vintage look.
I used the Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends marker to color the three pearls before I attached them to the sentiment.  It only took a few seconds and they were dry.  The sentiment is punched out using the Pretty Label Punch.  I also punched out two basic gray pieces and layered them behind for that added depth to the sentiment.
I love how the shimmer ribbon looks on this card.  The picture does not do justice to how pretty this ribbon combo pack is.  And it is FREE as a Sale-A-Bration item choice with your $50 order!!!  Thanks for stopping by today.  Here are the Stampin' Up! products I used for today's project...
