Happy April Fools Day!! Nora here to bring you the first ever Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Designs "Creative Fools" Blog Hop!! It has been in the works for the last couple months and I am so excited that it is FINALLY HERE!!
The theme today is "Punny" cards. The design team took one of the badges from the previous challenge and came up with some fabulous creations. Hopefully they will bring as big a smile to your face as they did mine.
I decided to create two cards for this challenge, one for my blog and the card below.
Get it? Prickles on the cactus? I should make these for everyone I know because this is SO ME!!
I used the Tic-Tac-Toe Badge #1 to make this card. I used the bottom row across-background stamping, new and shaped frame.
I started off by stamping the background "Canvas" from Hero Arts in "Warm Wool Dye Ink" from WPlus9 onto Kraft card stock. I then stamped a sentiment from My Favorite Things "LLD Sweet Succulents" stamp set using the Warm Wool ink and adhered the sentiment strip over the background using foam adhesive.
I then die cut the frame both white and a piece of persimmon colored paper. I adhered it onto the front of the card above the sentiment strip. Next I stamped and die cut the cactus/pot from My Favorite Things "LLD Sweet Succulents" set onto patterned paper. I used colored pencils to shade both the cactus and the pot. I also used a gel pen to color in the flowers. My last step was to adhere them over the frame with foam adhesive.
Now onto the hop!! Some of the blogs will also be offering fun PRIZES. Each prize will be picked from the commenters on the design teams individual blogs. The hop will last from, today, Friday, April 1, 2016 (9 am CST) until Sunday, April 3, 2016 (12 pm CST).
