A Tic-Tac-Toe Card

Design sister Sue challenged us with a Tic-Tac-Toe card at My Sheri Crafts. Here are the possible combos for the challenge:

ABC along the top and 123 down the side.Going down column A Colour Brown Butterfly and ribbon. Down B. Twine, metal embellishment and tag. Down C Stencil, flower and lace.

I chose Brown, Twine and Stencil for my card. The background paper is from K&Co's Blossomwood and I added texture paste on it. I used a Heidi Swapp stencil both for the texturing and for inking the white cardstock. The ink used are Desert Sand and Chocolate from Close To My Heart. I created some shadowing in the basketweave pattern using a brown Close To My Heart watercolor pencil. The stamp set is a September Exclusive from Close To My Heart, called "Hello Life". I added a paperclip and Baker's twine for even more texture.

Happy Fall Y'all!

Fall can't come soon enough here in the desert. Design Team sister Glenda challenged us with a fall-themed project featuring a scarecrow or a pumpkin. I wanted to combine the old and the new in my fall layout, so I colored a retired JRL scarecrow stamp with Copics, and made a two-page layout from the Reflections Scrapbooking Guide. I used the Sangria Paper Packet and Complements, and Gold Sequins Assortment as flower centers. I added some Bronze and Coral Shimmer Trim to the border. The sentiment was cut at 6" Real Dial Size Off using my Cricut Artbooking cartridge.

We are looking forward to seeing your projects at My Sheri Crafts!
