Artistically Inked CAS Hello Card TTT122

by Joanne James15. July 2021 17:00

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge over at TicTacToe! It's the turn of Team X to host this week and the lovely Betty is our featured designer this week. This is the fun board that we are playing along with: 


I went across the middle with diecut/sentiment/metallic for my card today and decided to use my Artistic Dies to create a pretty and clean card - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Artistic Dies - This main diecut from the Artistic Dies is so very pretty! I decided to go white-on-white today with a pop of colour peeking through beneath:


Artistically Inked - There was an experimental element to my card today, in that I wanted to see if I could get the floral stamps in the Artistically Inked to line up with the detail of the dies. So pleased to discover that this was quite easy to do and I’m looking forward to sharing how I did this, along with some tips and tricks, with the ladies that are attending my Artistically Inked class next week as we are going to do something similar.

A Trio of Metallics - For my trio of metallics, I heat embossed my sentiment in silver, and added some silver thread and a trio of sparkly rhinestones. Just enough to add a touch of metallic for a little extra detail.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my Product and 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

i really like today’s card; lots of the cards I’ve made to date using this suite have included lots of elements and I think this pared back look is much more in keeping with my go-to style. That makes it a great card to link up with the girls over at SUO Challenges where they have a ‘Designer’s Choice’ challenge this week.

A tictactoe board offers so many creative possibilities - how does this week's board inspire you? Why not have a go? We would love to see you in the gallery and who knows - you might be selected for Designer's Choice and be eligible to be a guest designer on a future challenge. 

Enjoy your day; the James Juniors and I have been to the beach today which was a lot of fun - I’m sure we will sleep well tonight! I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Lovely! I like the way you've paired up the stamps with the die cut... I actually never thought of doing that! And the touches of silver add even further elegance. LOVE this.

I've already mentioned how much I love this one!  The softness and femininity are so appealing and the touches of silver just add to the elegance. I'm looking forward to hearing how you lined up the flowers with the die! How lovely to have gone to the beach! And you're right, there's nothing like sea air for a great night's sleep! Vicky x

Joanne.  I just love how you did this card... it is just beautiful!  I struggle so much with flowers.  At the moment I am regretting my entry in The Flower Challenge... and hoping I can get another card made to redeem myself.  Sometime you just have those days...
Your creation though... is perfect!
BTW... are your classes online?  Can I join? Or do I have to belong to Stampin Up?  Curious...
