JOY OF SETS TIC TAC TOE - JANUARY 2020 #JOSTTT013


Happy New Year everyone - it's the start of a brand new year for Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe as we celebrate our first birthday. And what a year it was - thank you to all of you who joined in with us and joined us as Guest Designers.  To celebrate our 1st Anniversary I'm delighted to say that Visible Image Stamps have kindly offered to donate a £25 gift voucher.




Our grid for this month has been chosen by one of our new Design Team Members Libby Fens.  Libby is on a few Design Teams so I'm sure you have seen and enjoyed her work around blogland.

I chose the middle line Red, Hearts, Ribbon.  My card uses an old stamp set from Clearly Beloved called Spring Tulips together with a stamp set I was gifted by one of my Joy of Sets members!  Clearing away my Christmas stamps and getting ready for spring.  A bit early I  know but I can hope!  I started off by stamping the jug with the hearts and then masking it off.  I then added the CB tulips and coloured them in using Tim Holtz distress inks and a blender pen.  I used Distress Inks for the background taking care not to colour over the jar of flowers.  I layered this onto a piece of DSP from SU called Perennial Essence.  I love this paper and it was really hard to cut into it - you all know that feeling?!  I added some SU pink satin ribbon, the sentiment from the stamp set and a glitter heart to finish off the card.

Such a lovely card, Fiona. The tulips are such a beautiful color... definitely my favorite when picking them out for myself at the store. And I love the background coloring... complimented so nicely by the gorgeous DSP. Question is did you color the background to compliment the DSP or was the DSP picked to compliment your background? That DSP is definitely painful to cut. :)

Wow, this is such a pretty card, Fiona! That center panel is so beautifully done with the stamping, masking, and coloring, and the ribbon is a perfect finishing touch.
