Floral Phrases for Tic Tac Toe Challenge 011
Today I am playing along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge No: 011 #tttc011. I used two of my favorite items from the 2017-2018 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog. Floral Phrases and Burlap Background Stamps! They pair well together and I just love the look of elegance and rustic.
I decided to play two rows, Top Across – Burlap, Banner and Yellow. Left Down – Burlap, Flower and Leaf. The Floral Phrases stamp set contains both flower and leaf images so it worked well for the Left Row Down. The Burlap Background and Burlap Ribbon checked burlap off the list. The ribbon and stamped image was made into a banner and I colored the flowers with my favorite yellow: Crushed Curry! I think the colors paired well and I am pretty happy with the final result.
- Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 4.25 in. x 11 in. and scored / folded at 5.5 in.
- Crumb Cake Cardstock as cut to 4.25 in x 5.5 in and the Burlap Background Stamp was inked in Soft Suede. I then fussy cut the fringe of the burlap to make it look more real. It was adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The Hello image from the Floral Phrases Stamp Set was inked up in Basic Gray Archival Ink (if I had did it again, I would use Soft Suede…the same as the burlap). I colored the image with an Aqua Painter, the flower petals are Crushed Curry, flower centers are Soft Suede and the leaves are Lemon-Lime Twist. I fussy cut the image with the Paper Snips and adhered it to the card in a banner form over the top of two strips of ribbon: Burlap 5/8″ Ribbon and Crushed Curry 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon.
- I added a triple looped ribbon made with Linen Thread to adhere to the side of the focal point. I also added several Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add a bit of sparkle to the card.
