My card is created on a white card base.  The red layer is cut using a retired MFT Blueprints die.  Scraps from my pile were used on the background pieces.  I used the zig zag stitched circle dies from SugarPea Designs for the circle.  The MFT Santa Picture Book die was cut using different colors of paper and pieced together.  I colored his face with Copic Markers.  Googly eyes were added for fun. The sentiment is heat embossed in white embossing powder.  Red enamel dots were added to complete my card.

It's time for a new challenge at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge!

We have a fantastic board for all of you! 

We would love for you to take some inspiration from the challenge board above, using three elements in a row of your choice. Whatever row inspires you is what we challenge you to create! Don’t forget to link back to us, and to use our hashtags #tictactoechallenge and 

My card is created using the top row:  Turquoise, Holiday, Sequins.

 My card is created on a white card base.  I used the MFT Bold Stripes Cover Up die to cut out the turquoise background.  The fa la la sentiment was cut out using the Simon Says Stamp die on silver foil.  The rest of the sentiment was stamped in black using the Simon Says Stamp Fa La La stamp set.  The Santa is stamped on Neenah Solar White in Black Memento ink using the Stamping Bella Santa Is Stuck set.  I colored him with Copic Markers and cut him out using the matching dies.  Wink of Stella and silver sequins were added for shine.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today, please pop over and see more inspiration from the rest of the Tic Tac Toe design team and I hope you have a chance to play along with us this week!

It's Sunday and time for our final challenge of 2017 at the The Paper Players!

Today is Deanne's  (Three Trees Paper Creations)  last week as a Guest Designer.  She has been such a wonderful part of our team for the past year.  I will truly miss her work, but I know she will join us in the gallery when she can.  Thank you, DeAnne for being such an inspiration to all of us!!! 

I am the hostess this week and I have a bold, vibrant color palette for all of you!  I needed more Christmas cards, but this color combo has so much potential.  I can't wait to see where your imagination takes you!  Have fun!

My card is created on a Garden Green card base.  I added a panel of Lemon Lime Twist.  The top white panel is trimmed with a stitched border.  I added the sentiment in black.  The three bows are stamped in Melon Mambo and Powder Pink inks.  The stamp set Holiday Bows is from The Ton.  I cut them out with the matching dies.  I added Wink of Stella and clear sparkling sequins for lots of shine.
