I hope that you had a safe and happy Christmas and start to the new year. I am finally getting back into my normal routine after all the festivities related to the holidays. Last night I realized that I needed to make my nephew a birthday card QUICK! I keep a file on my email account for current challenges and checked to see what I could use for his card. I decided that the Heart 2 Heart Challenge called Tic Tac Toe was just the thing to get me started. Here is the link to the challenge: http://heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com/2015/01/tic-tac-toe.html The Tic Tac Toe grid line that I followed was to use a sketch, stamping and make it masculine. Here is the grid:
I used sketch #28 on page 46 of the CTMH Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 pattern book. I then chose to use the Superman paper kit from CTMH for all the pieces. I used the stamp set that came with the Superman WOG kit. I inked up the Super Kid stamp in black and stamped it on white. I then cut it out and colored with matching markers. I added a little glitter to the word "Super" for a little extra shine. I then inked up the CTMH dimensional star with Sunkiss Yellow. I then stamped "happy birthday" from the "Say it in Style" CTMH stamp set with black ink. I then attached the star straight to the white square and the "super kid" is popped up with foam tape. I then punched a little star from CTMH silver glitter paper and attached to the yellow star. And that is it. Nice and simple. Thanks for stopping by.
