Challenge Blog JOSTTT005 May 2019

Happy Saturday! Welcome to #JOSTTT005 for May 2019.

Something new and exciting, I have been selected to join the Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe Challenge Design Team! This group of talented stampers are joined together from all over the globe to participate in monthly challenges. I love the idea of this challenge to be able to choose any 3 options from the table below (vertical, horizontal or diagonal).

I went with the following options, Bird, Yellow and Emboss.

I love birds (except the magpies that swoop me every spring!), so I was excited to make a card with a bird and I love the colour yellow on this card, so bright and happy.

For this card I used So Saffron card stock teamed with the Petal Palette stamp set. If you love this stamp set as much as I do, make sure you order it before it’s too late as this set is on the retirement list.

For the embossing, I used the subtle embossing folder to add some texture to the card base and card front. I also added a piece of whisper white card stock in there embossed with Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I coloured the flower and leaves using my Stampin’ Up blends in colours Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.

Such a cute addition to the centre of the flowers is the share what you love artisan pearls. So pretty!

When I was making this card I thought what sentiment would I choose? I decided on happy mother’s day from the itty bitty greetings stamp set as it is nearly mother’s day after all!

I wonder what next month’s challenge will be?

Catch you next time,
