I am delighted to be invited to be a Guest with the Tic Tac Toe Team this week. I was given Challenge (#179) and I selected the Center Vertical Column: Wreath, Wood and Patterned Paper.
Let the fun begin…I selected a number of concurrent challenges to inform my selections.
Starting with the Alphabet (Letter L) for Leaves to create my Wreath using the colors suggested by the Facebook September SU! Color team, then Happy Little Stampers Dies (September) for the Die Cut Shape suggested by the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch (#572). My design uses a number of repetitive items: Hexagons, Leaves, Stripes and Enamel Dots, so I chose to enter Just Us Girls (#649).
Here is the result:
- Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Very Vanilla cardstock.
- Card Front: (5½” x 4¼”) Light Wood patterned piece of paper from the retired In Good Taste Designer Series Paper pack for the “Wood” element.
- Horizontal Cross Strip Accent: (5½” x 1¾”) Granny Apple Green cardstock.
- Horizontal Cross Strip: (5½” x 1⅝”) Early Espresso Striped patterned piece of paper from the Neutrals Color Collection Designer Series Paper pack for the “Patterned Paper” element.
- Hexagon Shape: (2¾” x 2¾”) Very Vanilla cardstock. Die-cut square using the largest stitched square from the Stylish Shapes Dies set.
- Previously, an eight-point template was created for the Stamparatus Positioning Tool to aid in Wreath stamping, using the (2¾” square) from the Stylish Shapes Dies set.
- Using the Stamparatus Positioning Tool, the template and three Leaf images from the Eden’s Garden stamp set, the Wreath was created with Merry Merlot, Granny Apple Green and Early Espresso inks.
- The Wreath was then die-cut with the largest Hexagon die (2¼” x 2⅝”) from the Beautiful Shapes Dies set.
- Sentiment Shape: (1” x ⅞”) Granny Apple Green cardstock scrap.
- The small hexagon from the Beautiful Shapes Sies set was die cut.The sentiment, HELLO, from the Garden Wishes stamp set was stamped into Veramark ink and then into Merry Merlot ink and heat-set with Clear Embossing Powder with the aid of the Stamp-a-ma-jig Positioning Tool.
- The Hexagon was then dry-embossed with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder for a bit of interest.
The warm Fall colors, Red, Brown and Green are not as closely associated with the idea of Harvest, but they do make a very nice Fall / Harvest Wreath.
All of the elements were adhered to the Wood panel to resemble the sketch with the Wreath popped up with Dimensionals. The completed Panel was then added to the card base. Four retired Gold Glitter Enamel Dots were added to the Patterned Paper Strip completing the card.
Isn’t it amazing what one line of eight can inspire? Dig into your stash and try your hand at creating a project using the suggestions from the Tic Tac Toe (#179) Board. Looking forward to seeing what you create.
