This week, the fabulous Jaydee is hosting a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  These challenges are always my favorites, and boy does Jaydee have a fabulous board for us! I selected the left column, and my card also fits the lower left to upper right diagonal, too. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

My poor punches! They sit alone and forsaken, waiting idly in their little cubicles, sadly waiting for the day I will pull them out and play.  Today was the day I decided to show them some love! The focal feature is courtesy of the 1-3/4″ Circle, Bough, and Petal Park Builder punches. How quick and easy! I accented the edges of the white blossoms using a sponge dauber and Boho Blue ink, and then constructed the flower.  Coordinating Countryside Inn papers form the backdrop.  Festive Pearls accent the center of the punched flower and selected flowers on the designer paper.

    Ann, this is so gorgeous! I love all the shades of blue! The scalloped edge frame makes all the flowers pop! So feminine and perfect! I would love to receive this beauty in the mail!

  2. Joanne James - The Crafty Owl

    A beautiful showcase of these papers Ann and your punched flower detail makes a great accent too. A blue beauty!

  3. Anne, this is such a pretty blue and white card! I also love the dimensional flower and pearl – perfect!
    Xoxo, Fran

  4. Wowza, this is a gorgeous way to highlight these fabulous papers! I love my blues and all these hues just make me smile! Beautiful florals too! I agree wtih Jaydee–it’s a symphony of blue!

  5. Ann, I love the blues together. The white scalloped edges echo the round edges of the florals and your bouquet in the corner is fabulous. A symphony in blue that hits just the right notes 🙂

  6. Bonnielee McGuire

    Wow! That is gorgeous, even though it’s blue. In fact, I think this card must be blue. Love the little “corsage” on the corner. Really very pretty. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Anne, I love it, The layers, the paper, the color and shading of the flowers. Well done!
