Tic Tac Toe

Hi, I am sure that you have heard of the game tic tac toe, well earlier this week in my Stampin’ Up team group we were set a challenge based on the 3×3 grid of tic tac toe. The idea is that you choose a winning line and have to create a project based on the titles in there. This was ours

I love things like this to inspire me creatively I chose the diagonal line top left to bottom right, so I needed to make a 3D Project, inspired by nature and has some sparkle to it.

A lady in my class has asked me to show them how to make a box card so that was a good place to start. To Decorate the box I used Natures Poem DSP. Inside the box the trees are from the Rooted In Nature bundle, the fox comes from the Foxy Friends stamp set and little mice from Sweet storybook bundle,This could be a new favourite of mine.

Oh the sparkle, it does not really show up on the photo but the sun is covered in Wink of Stella to give it a bit of shine.


Box card, pop up, wonderful
This is a box card decorated with Natures poem, Rooted in nature stamp set and sweet storybook bundle from Stampin’ Up


Another great thing about these cards is that they fold flat for posting.

What would you make with this tic tac toe? Share you pictures.

My inspiration for todays peekaboo card comes from Dawns stamping thoughts, she is on youtube and her videos are really clear and straight forward for what looks like quite a complicated card. Here is a link to the video.

I have used

Perfect pairing (which is no longer available) but there are plenty of other sentiments to choose from.

Celebrate today stamp set

Celebrate Today

A friend of mine got a new job yesterday and I am going to miss her support at work, so of course I had to make her a card to congratulate her. I am not naturally a creative person so find inspiration from other stampin’ up demonstrators, I love that they all share projects. On Sam Johnson’s blog I saw a sketch she had used and decided to start with that.


I have used the Suite Sayings stamps as they are the ones I have just bought, stamps for all occasions. I was going to put flowers around the balloon, but that just wouldn’t have worked and then I remembered that the Sprinkles of Life set had a stamp that looks like clouds so with a sprinkle of glitter embossing I felt the clouds were perfect.

So a list of Items used and link to buying them.
