SIP Challenge 61 – Tic-Tac-Toe from Lisa!

The weather was a little cooler here yesterday, it was in the 80’s and while the AC is thankfully still working in the car it was definitely a top down day! I had a nice day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! I got lots of administrative things done in the morning. My friend Robyn stopped in to get some goodies and we had a nice long chat. She has lots of good recommendations for off beat things! I chatted with Sue and Skyped with Andrea and Dena! My ride home was lovely and quick! After dinner my friend Louis called and asked me to meet him at Century21 to help him pick out a suit, his grandmother passed away. Another excuse for a drive in the car! We got two suits for him and then stopped at Carvel and had a little ice cream. Today I have a lot to get done at the store and then tomorrow I have to start getting ready for Card Class on Thursday and Friday!

Since today is Tuesday that means that we have a new Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge for you…

SIP Challenge 61 - Tic-Tac-Toe

I used some Altenew again, I absolutely love their flowers and greetings! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For my background I embossed a piece of Sno-Cone with the We R Memory Keepers Waves 3D Next Level Embossing Folder and adhered it directly to the card with E-Z Runner. My flowers are from the Altenew Lotus Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed just the outlines in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto Arches 140lb Watercolor Paper and used my Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors to color them in. The greeting is from the Altenew Beautiful Quotes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in more Copper onto a piece of 46lb Vellum. I picked up the bottom edges of the background and folded over the side of the Vellum and tucked them in to adhere it to the card (because I forgot to do it before I adhered the background! :-P). My flowers are all adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares and the stems with Dot Runner Adhesive. I love the Copper Embossing Powder but I think it looks especially cool with the blue watercolor and the sentiment is just awesome! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and see what the rest of the talented Team has made to inspire you and enter your creation into the gallery! Thank you very much for visiting me today! Have an amazing Tuesday! 🙂

  1. Another beautiful card, Justin. I love the copper embossing with your wonderful blue watercoloring. That sentiment is the best. On a personal note, I deleted a few hundred emails on Saturday and somehow when I do that I lose your blog. So I have not been able to find you until today. Now I can get caught up again. Don’t worry I have a more manageable number now – 1531 emails now. Isn’t that crazy!! I hate to get rid of things. I think I’m going to do some copper embossing today. Glad you got the AC fixed in your car. Have a great day!

    1. Thank you HJ! I am such a big fan of the Copper EP and I love the way it looks with blue! I love that Beautiful Quotes set! I try to delete emails as I go along, I have gotten better. I used to save them because I was going to come back and look at them, that never happens! That’s odd that you loose the blog posts! You need to bookmark the site! You should see how many emails I have! It a 6 digit number! I hope that you got to do your embossing! The AC fixed itself which was the best! Hope that you had a great day too! 🙂

  2. Justin – are you okay? Are you running a fever or sneezing or something? You actually had sequins on the Tic-Tac-Toe and didn’t use any on this card? Oh my, now I’m getting worried! 🙂 I’m so glad you introduced me to that copper embossing powder, it has now become my favorite. Your card for today is just beautiful (as always) and your water coloring and shading are perfect. I love that the embossing keeps the inks where they belong.

    Sounds like you had a fabulous day at “work” yesterday! Good for you. The best part is that you can take the time to talk to customers and friends during the day. I also think it’s fantastic that your friends can count on you to do things like help them pick out clothing because they have such trust in you. You have special friends but that’s because you are such a special friend to them. Wishing you a Terrific Tuesday. Love and big hugs to you! XXOO 🙂

    1. Ha ha ha ha ha! You are too funny Grace! I thought about adding sequins but I didn’t think that it needed anything else! Even I can hold back sometimes! LOL! I love that Copper EP, it’s my new Gold! Thank you! Love the heat emboss and then watercolor, makes it a little easier!
      I do try and make every day as much fun as I can! Talking to the customers is my favorite thing to do! My friends come to me for a lot and I like that! I am an unpaid life coach for a lot of peeps! Now I need one! I hope that you enjoyed your Tuesday! Love and hugs! XOXO 🙂

  3. YES! A beauty, I LOVE!!!! the blue with copper. Blue is not in my top 10 fav colors so I never woud have tried this combo, LOVE IT!!!!!! OMG, hearing about your day makes me tired, good luck

    1. Thanks very much Linda! I like the way the two colors look together too! Blue is actually my favorite color! Sometimes when I read back my post it makes me a little tired too! LOL! 🙂
