Stamp Ink Paper: Tic-Tac-Toe

What better way to wish someone good luck than with an elephant blowing out gold? I was a little apprehensive about buying this stamp, but my niece loves elephants and when I travel, I buy her an elephant souvenir. Guess what she’s getting when she graduates from Radiology school!? You guessed it…this cute card! 

Each week I am in constant awe of my teammates over at Stamp Ink Paper.  Their talent is absolutely incredible and they never cease to amaze me.  The cards everyone uploads are equally fantastic and I love visiting various blogs and other social medial posts with hand-made cards.  Jump on over and check out the talent!

The Details:

  • Spotlight Technique.  I didn’t know that was the technique I used after I shared the card on our blog team page.  We all have various stamping & designing styles and they’re all acceptable.  It’s “art” and anything goes!
  • Metallic Sequin.  I didn’t get the idea of designing the card with golden sequin being blown out of elephant’s trunk until after I put the card together.  What better way than to wish someone good luck with gold? I’ve always been told that an elephant with its trunk in an upwards position brings good-luck and you know it’s true.  As I was designing the card I received a notification that I won a $25 gift certificate from a graphic designer I use for my graphic art design business (invitations & more).
  • Two-tone Colors.  To keep the good-luck theme I used Elegant Eggplant (deep purple) because purple has been known for royalty & wealth for centuries. My niece has definitely earned her way through school by working hard and she will be rewarded for sure.  Don’t worry, she’s too busy to follow my blog, so I’m not worried she’s going to see it before she receives it. (LOL)

Star Bright Christmas

Challenge 5

It’s another gorgeous Christmas card and it’s onlyJuly…woot woot!  You know you want to get started and I’m here to give you a little something to think about.  These stars are so easy and you can cut out a bunch and then use your Score Board to create the star in 3-D.  See how to make it in the video below.


My Star Bright card today is for the Stamp Ink Paper Card Challenge #5 and I’m tellin’ ya, this card has officially started my Christmas in July beginning last week.  LoL…I posted a Christmas card last week and it’s funny now because I just learned to make this star and I’m in love.  You can guess what I’ll be making my local family and friends.  The one’s I mail will be different, but I’ll save that one for later.



  • Hiding Place.  Just in case you were wondering how I adhered the star to the card stock, I stacked five Stampin’ Dimensionals in the middle of the star and played it in the center of the real red card stock.  I used a retired embellishment and placed it on top so that the dimensional can’t be seen.  Pretty nifty right!? LoL
  • How To Make The Star.  You know me, I don’t like to re-create the wheel, so I did all the research for you and found an easy to follow Youtube video that shows you how to make the cool 3-D star.  You can see it here
