Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe Challenge Blog August #josttt008

Can you believe it's time again for the Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe Challenge Blog Design Team to serve up some fabulous papercrafted products to our readers? These months pass too quickly. This time the grid was chosen by Kaylin Krawczyk.  We had an option this month to join in with the fabulous Double Trouble Blog. This presented us with the chance to include something round in our card or to go a step further by incorporating other elements. I opted to keep with the round theme and not join in with the more advanced part of the challenge. OK so it was easy given that I already had circles on my card... let's call it one of life's serendipitous moments.

For my Joy of Sets grid I chose Circle, Animal and Plaid working down diagonally from the top right or up diagonally from the bottom left depending on the way you look at it. 

So here is my card -

As you can see it's a near circle card with a plaid layer of DSP and a cute little snail stamp on the front sitting atop a mound of circles.

I used Stampin' Up! thick Whisper White card stock for the card base which I cut using a 4 inch large circle die from a nesting set by X-Cut. I then used a flower shaped die which I think was from an X-Cut nesting set also. I used two different papers from a paper popper pad by Pollyanna Pickering which I think was a Christmas themed collection. I off set the two flower die cuts and wrapped some silver yarn around the upper layer just to add a little something.

I then used a smaller circle die to cut a disk of Whisper White, added a layer of the more plain DSP cut using a Starburst punch from Stampin' Up! and finishing off with a cute snail stamp to fulfil the animal element of the grid. This is from a retired Stampin' Up! set called Easy Events which I could not bear to part with in my recent stash cull.  I stamped it in Pretty Peacock ink, again from Stampin' Up! and used an aqua blender to bring some colour onto the shell and to the gift on the snail's back.  To finish off I added some Stampin' Up! basic rhinestones and created a little insert to ensure the card always stands up. You can see how I did this in the tutorial video on my You Tube channel.

Why not come and play along with us and add your own entry using the tic tac toe board to the JOS challenge blog post. We love to see what other people do with it and enjoy popping in on new blogs.

Thank you for dropping in on mine. Have a great weekend.
