The House That Stamps Built: Tic-Tac-Toe

No automatic alt text available.

Tic-Tac-Toe time at the House:
 
I went with the center row, Green-Dimension-and Sponging,
I thought this was a good week for a St. Patrick's theme.  I used the Repeat Impressions: 5135-D, Shamrock Sil. (sm) and 5119-I, Shamrock Sil. (lg)
I started with randomly stamping the small shamrock, dry embossing it, did a die cut with of it and green with Taylored Expressions frame in frame.  After sponging the white card stock it still needed more and I had no idea where I was going from there.  I ended up cutting the outside x3 for dimension.  Then I decided to make it into a shaker card,  and then stamped the large shamrock and cut it out on  my Scan N Cut.
Sometimes it is fun  to just start on a card and where it takes us!



We always enjoy when you join in the challenge.  You don't have to use a Repeat Impressions stamp but when you do you are entered in the drawing twice for a gift certificate for
Repeat Impressions, complete details and link up at The House That Stamps Built.

Your journey took you into something beautiful! I think this is the 1st Shamrock shaker card I've seen, and you did a fab job. It's a clever idea, and I like the way you've got the different shades on the stamped shamrocks, also the way you've created the dimension with having the 'edge' part raised up like you did with the shaker design. It's an awesome card - GOOD JOB! TFS & Hugs
