Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a TicTacToe challenge (one of my favorites!) from our own talented JayDee this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo! I hope you’ll come and play along. 🙂
If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me! If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!
I turned to the beautiful Many Layered Blossoms bundle – stamp set AND dies – for this one. And set the blooms atop a Christmas Layers bough and an Ornate Floral 3D embossed panel! Take a look-see:
And here’s this week’s Paper Players TicTacToe challenge! Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects! I can’t wait to see what you create!
I went across the top – down the right column – and across the diagonal left to right. I’m pretty sure that’s YAHTZEE! 😉
And the layout was (sort of loosely!) inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week!
I started by cutting the bough from the Christmas Layers die set from a piece of Just Jade card stock, which would form the basis for the flower spray on the card front.
Using the small flower dies in the Many Layered Blossoms die set, I cut three small and two large flowers from Silver Foil. Then I adhered them to a piece of the Magenta Madness paper in the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP. I roughly fussy cut the flowers.
I cut the outline flowers from Misty Moonlight and used Liquid Glue to adhere them (only using glue in the middles of the flowers) to the flowers I’d just created.
I laid out the bough and the flowers on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Once I knew where it would all “land”, I stamped the Blossoms in Bloom sentiment in Misty Moonlight. Then I embossed the panel in the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.
I adhered the panel to a Magenta Madness mat and then adhered the Just Jade bough across the panel with Liquid Glue.
Using Stampin’ Dimensionals – I added the five flowers. Under the fourth flower – I used a Glue Dot to adhere a simple bow tied from a length of Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine from the new Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.
I added a Bumble Bee enamel dot from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots to the center of each flower and the card front was done.
On the inside, I stamped the two small flowers from Blossoms in Bloom in Misty Moonlight on a Whisper White panel. I stamped little flower centers in Melon Mambo (I don’t have Magenta Madness Ink yet – but it’s a good way to show the difference in the two colors!). I added a Just Jade enamel dot to each flower.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Magenta Madness mat and into my Misty Moonlight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Misty Moonlight and Melon Mambo flowers on the front…
…and more of the Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! No way around it, is there? This bundle – whether you use the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set with the Many Layered Blooms Dies together or just one of the other – is a stunner!! The stamp set – in addition to the beautiful blossoms – covers a lot of ground in the sentiment department!!
I’m also a huge fan of the new designs in the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP, aren’t you? When the new catalog comes out next week (whoo-hoo!!), each color collection will have a new pack of DSP with these designs!
Yep – that’s WOODGRAIN!! 🙂
I hope you like – and are adding all these goodies to your gotta-have-it list!

The other day, Finn had gone outside for…you know.
He started barking (not at all unusual) and I looked out the kitchen window to see what it was….the last time he did that we had a visitor.
I couldn’t see anything but he was definitely letting me know SOMEthing was up…
He’d barkbarkbark and then…look to see what, if any, effect he was having…
Finally, I guess he decided it just wasn’t worth the effort and he laid down to rest…
Turns out…which I discovered when I went to feed…I’d left the back pasture gate open that morning.
The girls had been taking a turn thru the barn – checking the sawdust barrels, perusing the hay room, and finally finding the clover patch behind the barn.
So…there WAS something to bark at.
Ever heard of the Aussie who cried wolf?!?
