My Favorite Things - Tic Tac Toe

Happy Sunday!

This week, I have a card I made the week of Valentine's Day. I had this idea for Valentine's Day, but didn't get the card made in time, so it will be an anniversary card. Can't believe it has been 18 years today!

This is My Favorite Things - Tic Tac Toe and Square shaker frame die.  This die has a matching stamp set X's and O's, which has the great sentiment 'Love Wins', which I used on the inside of the card.   I made 2 versions of the tic tac toe in white and black to use all the cut outs. I used an embossing folder heart background to add another layer and some texture.


Which do you like better?  I can't decide.  The black background is kind of like a chalkboard which is fun.

Stamps: My Favorite Things X's and O's
Dies: My Favorite Things Tic Tac Toe and Square shaker and Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangles
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug Hearts
Papers: PTI Poppy Red, White and Black

Blessings to You

PaperTrey Ink - Guiding Lights with Stitched dies

Happy Saturday!

Today, I have a redo of a card I made last year, because I got some new dies that I thought would really add a little extra to the card.  The stamp set is PaperTrey Ink - Guiding Lights.   

The dies are MFT Stitched Valley, Memorybox Swirl Stitched Clouds and Simon Says Stamp Twisted stitch borders.  It was really fun to mix all these different dies to create this lighthouse scene.  I also used some patterned paper for something a little different.

I created a few cards, horizontal and vertical scenes.

Supplies List:

Stamps: PTI "Guiding Lights
Cardstock: PTI - Pure New Leaf, Spring Rain, Aqua Mist, White
Ink: PTI - Pure Poppy and true Black
Die: MFT Stitched Valley, Memorybox Swirl Stitched Clouds and Simon Says Stamp Twisted stitch borders

PaperTrey Ink - 7th Inning Stretch

Happy Saturday!

Today, I have a baseball card I made last weekend.  I've had this set for quite some time it is from PaperTrey Ink - "7th Inning Stretch" and die set.  

I made a few with different patterned papers.  The bat is die cut from Kraft cardstock, then I stamped it with a woodgrain stamp and Chocolate Brown ink.  Then created the grip with masking tape.  The stitching is an Angel Company stamp - Running Stitches, which was nice to use again.  

I ended up pulling out some TAC stamps last weekend.  Some TAC ladies were doing a card swap so I was working on that also.  I didn't actually use TAC stamps for my swap but I had them out. I will share my swap card in May. 

Supplies List:

Stamps: PTI "7th Inning Stretch
Inks: PTI - Pure Poppy, Chocolate Brown
Cardstock: PTI - Kraft and White
Die: PTI 7th Inning Stretch die set
