Challenge Three

Welcome back for the third Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge! Your creations for challenge 2 were amazing and so very inspiring! Our absolute favorite part of this challenge is reading which row of the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge inspired you! We hope you continue to play along and use our challenge board as inspiration for your next project!

For this challenge, we included a sketch as one of the element in the challenge board. Ka used a layout from one of her older card and created a sketch based on that card. If you choose the row without the sketch, you may use the sketch as part of your design as long as you include the other three elements. The theme for this third challenge is love. Since Valentine's Day is around the corner, Ka added words and elements that associate with that day. We'd love for you to take some inspiration from the challenge board below using three elements in a row of your choice! Whatever rows you chose and are inspired by is what we challenge you to create!

You are playing for one of the following 3"x 4" stamp sets. The winner will get to choose the stamp set of their choice. If you already have all three in your stash, why not play to give one of these sets as a gift for one of your crafty friend? You can click on the links below to read more about each stamp set.
