Sunday Slot

I've been busy catching up on some of the challenges I like to enter - three yesterday and two more today. Make the Day Special have a tic-tac-toe board and Happy Little Stampers want stencilling.                

My card uses the bottom line of the board, stripes, diecuts and feminine and as it uses a stencil I'm hoping it's considered CAS, although I'm aware there's not that much white space.

I started by using a stencil to get my ombre stripes and then die cut the hearts once from the background and four more times from plain card. The plain hearts were then glued together with the stripy one on the top and replaced into the background - a technique I learnt from the online class Stretch your Dies, here.

I added a die cut 'hugs' and stamped the 'sending' to finish off my card.

Dies: Lawn Fawn, Hugs & Hearts
Stencil: Memory Box, wave
Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Say It In Style
Inks: SU, daffodil delight, calypso coral, melon mambo; Memento, tuxedo black

Thanks for dropping by today, hope your weekend is progressing peacefully and you've found time to:
Keep Crafting!
