Tic Tac Toe Challenge Fourteen

My first post for today: Mint Owl Studio Post
Hello everyone,

We are back with another challenge.

My choices today are
Embossing / Shaker Card / Paper Piecing

 I started out with the Sunshine Layers die from WPlus9 and cut out the front panel.  I then used the MFT Peek-a-Boo die and cut out the window for the shaker. I turned over the panel and added the acetate to the window and used fun foam to add the space required for the sequins.  After I added the sequins to the card I felt the background was too plain so I used the Altenew woodgrain background stamp and used hot fudge MFT hybrid ink to stamp onto the negative die cut from the window.  I added that to the back of the card and added score tap to the fun foam and added that to the card base.

I used the fun owl from Mint Owl Studio's Outrageous Owls stamp set and coloured him in with copics and for his wings, belly and eyebrows I used the Simple Stories Wood and Notebook Basic wood grain paper.  I cut out a banner from brown card stock with the SSS sketchy banners dies and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.  

 I then popped the banner and image on foam tape and call the card done.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.

90's Party

Hello everyone,

We hope you had a chance to hop along with us for our July Release blog hop yesterday.  We had lots of fun creating all the fun projects for you.

My card today was created with the 90's Party stamp set and I have to say this brings back lots of memories.

I started with a piece of distress card stock stamped the pixel type stamped and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I used my distress inks to colour the background.

I then cut out the front panel out with a rectangle die along with another white piece of card stock with a larger rectangle die and adhered it to the card base and popped up the front panel with foam tape.

I stamped the cassette tape (Wow! I haven't said that in years.) with black ink and coloured it in with copics.  I got the idea from DT member Lisa as she wrote on her tape as well.  I remember doing this "back in the day" with my tapes too.  

I thought the tape needed something more behind it so I stamped and heat embossed some of the element stamps in the set and adhered them to the card.  I added popped up the tape and stamped the sentiment with black ink, added a few home made enamel dots and called it done. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you again soon.
