My card is playing in the Tic Tac Toe Challenge: PP565 hosted by Ann for the Paper Players tonight. I opted for the center row down elements which includes Circles, Patterned Paper and Embossing. My sentiment from GKD’s Very Merry Christmas illustrated by Theresa Momber was stamped and then die cut with a Gina K Designs single stitched circle and layered in kraft cardstock onto a Spellbinders nestabilities circle die. My next element is patterned paper and I decided to create my own patterned paper by using The Crafters Workshop Buffalo Plaid Stencil and Distress Oxide inks in antique linen and walnut stain to give me a color pretty close to kraft . I then stamped the bell from SU’s Christmas Classics stamp set in walnut stain and then versamark and heat embossed it in clear embossing powder and fussy cut. My top layer is a piece of glitter paper and a strip of kraft cardstock to try to hide my seam between layers.
I wanted to yell BINGO but realized that was the wrong game so Tic-Tac-Toe it is.
When I first began stamping and cardmaking it, seemed reasonable if I was making one card I may as well make the second. So I am hoping to continue in that manner and create at least two cards of the same design. Even making two cards of the same design they each seem a little different and unique in their own way.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Hope everyone had a Boo-tiful Halloween.

Great card. You’re really nailing that Buffalo Plaid. It works so well everywhere.
Thanks, Judy, I’ve been enjoying this stencil and it’s finished result.
Great handmade paper! Love the soft warm tones on this card.
Thanks, Lisa, I kind of liked the non-traditional colors on this card.
BINGO still works for glee and the pure joy you must have felt upon the completion of this beauty.
LOL….thanks, Bonnie, I searched for the right bell for this project.
Beautiful! I love the buffalo plaid. I am finding stencils so useful.
Thanks, Lisa, I agree that you can really have fun with stencils and switching up inks.
Beautiful. You created a perfect buffalo plaid. I agree with Bonnie, BINGO works.
HaHa, Gerry, I almost forgot what game I was playing. Thanks for commenting.
That plaid is perfect and I love how you got the colours you wanted. I also enjoyed your description and the Bingo yell. It works too.
Love the sentiment and pretty colors and textures! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players!
Great job on this Gayle! I love that bell and the pretty plaid. Stencils are so fun to work with, in so many different ways. It’s always good to make 2, as you get your cards made twice as fast. 😉
