SIP Challenge 46 – Tic-Tac-Toe!

I hope that your Monday was a good one! It was supposed to rain here all day but instead we got a little reprieve and it was overcast with peeks of sun every now and then. No complaints about that! I had a nice productive day getting some crafting done in the morning via FaceTime with Andrea. I went over to my parent’s for lunch, I had a bagel with Liverwurst! I love Liverwurst, must be the German in me! LOL! some phone calls were up next, eBay about some charges to my account that shouldn’t have been there, I did call previous and they assured me that it would be taken care of, of course it wasn’t! I have also been having issues with my blog since the last WordPress update so I called GoDaddy, the guy tried to be helpful but told me I would have to pay $30 for them to change something that might fix the issue. Umm… I didn’t do anything to make it not work so I don’t think that I will be paying to get it fixed thanks! By some little miracle it seems to be working all on it’s own again (or maybe Trent from GoDaddy fixed it?!)! After that I stopped by Heather’s to drop off the Nespresso that she bought from me. Speaking of Heather it’s her Birthday today!! Happy Birthday Heather!! From there I stopped by Anthony’s to see him and Bill and then I came home and had dinner. Taylor and Kiera stopped by to binge watch some YouTube, some guy that makes things with a Lathe! Sigh! Before calling it a night I ran to Target to get a few things. Today I have lots to do once again, but it’s all good stuff!

It’s Tuesday and we are ready for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! This week I came up with a Tic-Tac-Toe board (with a little help from Andrea)…

SIP Tic Tac Toe 46 800

I did the left column down! My card base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a strip of Gold Mirror Card Stock down the left side with Scor-Tape. The background is another piece of Ivory 110lb that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Woven Next Lever 3D Embossing Folder. I did it with all tabs open on the Multi-Purpose Platform and still thought the Big Shot would explode! Thankfully it didn’t! The panel is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My orchid is from the Hero Arts Color Layering Orchid in a Pot Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped it in Unicorn, Bubblegum, Raspberry and Forever Green onto some Blushing Bride using my Mini MISTI. It’s cut out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. The greeting is from the Hero Arts Ribbon Messages Stamp and Cut, I stamped it in Raspberry and cut it out with the smaller of the two banners. It too is adhered to the card with Foam Tape. Of course I had to add some Pretty Pink Posh Ballerina Pink and Gold Sequins around the flower! It’s a sympathy card but not a sad one! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and see what the rest of the Team has done to inspire you! You can see what our Guest Designer for May, Jan Tinklenberg has to share with you too! Don’t forget to show us your card by posting it in the gallery, we love to see what you come up with!

  1. Great job, as always. That embossing folder really makes a difference. It is one of my favorites which I purchased after seeing one of your cards! The colors are exquisite.

    1. Thanks you so much Emily! I love that EF, well, all of them from We R Memory Keepers! Have a great day! 🙂

  2. Hi Justin:

    Today you used my absolute favorite EF of all time and that thin strip of gold CS really put the class into this design. What an amazingly beautiful card this is. Your sentiment die could not be more perfect. Absolutely breathtaking card if you ask me.

    Glad you had a good day yesterday and it sounds like you were quite productive. It seems I went in circles all day yesterday and I don’t think I accomplished a thing except to make a big mess in my craft room. I decided I have way too much fabric so I started emptying out the fabric closet. After taking everything out of one of the cubbies I gave up. Overwhelming! So today I’m going to have to face the consequences and get this all sorted and decide what to keep and what to get rid of. I think I must be overly blessed, either that or I’m a fabric hoarder. LOL

    You have yourself a Terrific Tuesday my friend. Love and Hugs, XXOO 🙂

    1. Hello Grace!
      Yes, I love that EF too! Thank you very much! I love the Hero Color Layering sets!
      Yes, I did have a nice day! Love when I can get lots done! I have the go in circles days way too often! LOL! Been there, done that! I think that blessed is a better description than hoarder! LOL! You have an awesome day too my friend! Love you! XOXO 🙂

  3. What an absolutely stunning card, Justin. I love the EF, the pink flowers, the gold strip and the sentiment font. Altogether they make a beautiful card. My wish list is growing longer and Hero Arts is becoming my favorite company. Have another great day!

    1. Thank you HJ! Hero is definitely one of my favorite companies!! Hope you are having a great week! 🙂

  4. oh my gosh! that embossing folder makes everything elegant and wonderful about the card. another product I’ll have to acquire based on your beautiful card artistry; I’m going to start blaming you for added inventory to an inventory that is already over-exploding! lol! thanks for sharing such a beautiful tic-tac-toe designed card.

    1. Thanks very much Debbie! You can blame me all you want! LOL! I do love those 3D Embossing Folders! Hope you are enjoying your week! 🙂

  5. Happy Birthday, Heather! I hope you are doing something fun and wonderful today!!
    Justin, you hit another one out of the ball park again with that EF. Gorgeous! That gold mirror paper is fabulous. Now I have to go look for it, darn you. Did you notice how many people are adding to their over-abundances because of you? Do you feel the least bit guilty? Don’t you wish you were getting commissions? I am going to try my hand at the drapery pleat fold soon. If it is a success, I may make a card for you too!!
    Tomorrow I am finally going out to lunch with a long-time friend, and finally, on Thursday, my husband is taking me to the hip doctor to get this straightened out. I will keep you posted! Do you know of anyone else who is looking forward to serious surgery? Take care! Hugs and love, Nancy B

    1. I’ll pass on your Birthday wishes to Heather Nancy! Thanks! So glad that you like the card! The EF is a favorite of mine! I did notice that I’m a bit of an enabler! I’m coming up with a way to make that easier of you too! Oh! The drapery fold! That sounds like fun!
      I hope that you enjoyed your lunch! I hope that the Dr. goes well! Love to you! XOXO 🙂

  6. Hi Justin, what a stunning card! It looks Japanese with that embossing folder, it’s so 3D it looks like you sat down for a few hours and wove the card together! Nobody got time for that, lol! How did Daniel do in the Long Island cuteness competition? I looked through the (many) entrants and he was definitely out in front cuteness-wise! Hope you have a great day Justin, I’m heading off to work 🙂 xox

    1. Hey Kelly! Thank you! Yes, it does have a Japanese feel to it! I do love that EF! And no, nobody got time to weave a card front today! I don’t know what happened with the cuteness contest! I’ll have to ask his mum! Hope you are having a nice week! XOXO 🙂

  7. Hi Justin,
    This is a beautiful sympathy card. I think a sympathy card should be soothing and that is exactly what this is. The embossing folder is beautiful and the orchid is perfect. Love it!

    1. Hello Gerri!
      Thank you! I don’t like sad sympathy cards, if that makes any sense! Yes, the EF is my fave! 🙂

  8. Beautiful, love your color choices. I really like thast stamp, just may need it, LOL. and the EF is the perfect touch. finally got some sun here, too bad it was a work day. Take care

    1. Thanks Linda! I love that stamp, but then again I love all of the color layering stamps from Hero! Can you send a little sun this way! 🙂

  9. Can never get enough of that embossing folder! Love the combination of it and the flowers. TFS
