Creative Knockouts Challenge - TicTacToe

This week at Creative Knockouts we have a slightly different version of the TicTacToe board.  You need to choose one thing from row 1, two things from row 2 and three things from row 3.  We also have a new sponsor for this challenge Dilly Beans Stamps.  So I hope you will be able to join us this week.


For my card I used the Dilly Beans digi image "Amalia's Daisy Crown".  I printed the image twice, colored the first and just the daisy crown on the second.  I fussy cut the daisy crown  and added to the colored image for more dimension.  As for the TicTacToe board I distressed the edges of the image and sentiment using Antique Linen Distress Ink.  For the second row I used the sentiment stamp from Printworks called "I'm so Glad".  The dies I used were the Nestabilities Circle and Scallop Circle Dies and MFT Die-namics Rounded Banner Stax.  For the third row I added gem stones from Ki, ribbon from my stash and flowers using a small punch from Fiskars.  The paper is from My Mind's Eye Collectable "Remarkable" 6x6 pack.  Here is my card for this week's challenge.

 Thanks for stopping by...

Creative Knockouts - Make It Sparkle

At Creative Knockouts this week the theme is "Make It Sparkle", so get out your glitter, Stickles and gems for this week's challenge.  We have a lot of sparkle from the Design Team this week using images from our sponsor Saturated Canary.  Krista's images are super, super sweet - I love them all, so it was hard to pick just one.  I finally decided on "Whispy" for my card - I thought her wings would be perfect for adding some sparkle.  The papers are from the Heidi Grace line "Sunshowers" that I picked up at Joann's.  The flourishes were diecut using the Allegro Corner Die from Simon Says Stamp with paper from DCWV Glitter Stack.  I added Stickles to the wings and underskirt on her dress and added gems to the flowers in the die cuts and bobbles that dangled from the leaves on her dress.  

Here is my card for this week... 

This should be a really fun challenge, so I hope you will be able to join us this week.
