Occasionally I like to do this….

Occasionally I like to do this…… Do What?  You’ll see.   First, I want to say that I’m so excited to join an amazing and talented group of crafters to play along with the TicTacToe Challenge this week. I am also excited that I got to break out my new stamp set “Touches of Texture” and the scallop edge die from the Seasonal Layers framelits for this project.

So without any further ado, here is my project.  simple floral for the TTTC03

I used Calypso Coral for the background, a strip of DSP from the Color Theory Designer Paper Stack which I cropped with the scallop border.  A rectangle of Whisper White cardstock was layered with a piece of Old Olive and stamped with the floral image from the “Touches of Texture”  stamp set using Sahara Sand ink.  I broke out my WaterColor pencils and Blender pen to give the flowers and leaves some color.  A simple bow made from the new 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon in Old Olive tied the whole project together!  (Did you catch my pun there: the ribbon “TIED” the whole project together? – of course you did.)

Here is the TicTacToeChallenge that inspired this piece. TicTacToeChallenge 003

You’ll see that I  chose the Right Side Down – bow, scallop & rectangle for my card.  Feel free to visit the TicTacToeChallenge page to see what others did with this challenge and be inspired to use this as a springboard to make your own projects.

Now to answer the big question.  What do I like to do occasionally?  Well, it’s more ‘not do’ than ‘do’ – I purposely chose to not put a sentiment on my card, to just leave it blank.  The soft tones and floral design lends itself to many occasions and I thought it would be good to make a few of these cards to have on hand.  I can always throw a sentiment on the inside of the card, or just leave blank to write a personal note.  Either way, this is an easy card to re-produce.  If you want to purchase any of the supplies I used to make this card, please shop my online store.  Or just click on any of the product names above or below in the supply list.

Sign up for my mailing list here to receive my (almost) weekly email.   Please leave me a comment and tell me whether you like a sentiment on every card your make, or if you like to make a card without a sentiment every now and again.

Thanks for stopping by My Stampin’ Space.  Come back soon.
