Tic Tac Toe Challenge #010

This week I decided to use the diagonal from bottom left to upper right consisting on green, fun fold, and bug or insect.  I don’t know why I didn’t think of the dragonflies first, but I’ve wanted to use this cute lady bug stamp since I got it and finally pulled it out (and it’s now retired;  SIGH).  I wanted to have a Real Red, Basic Black, and Whisper White card but that wouldn’t include the green I needed.  I also had to find a fun fold and this Dutch door fold card is so perfectly easy to create!  (Thank you Lovenstamps.com!)

I found grass in the Thoughtful Branches photopolymer stamp set, including the matching mounded lines.  I carefully stamped the  ladybugs just at the edge of the grass and colored them using Real Red.  The Basic Black DSP is from Pick-a-Pattern.  Love that paper and am going to have to order another stack of it at this rate!  I used Real Red in the scallop oval to crop out two ovals.  I was able to line up the scallops on both the inside and the outside, and then it was just a matter of using my Tombow to put all the pieces together.

Here’s my card:

Color Throwdown # 455

Colors this week for #ctd455 were pink, lavender, teal, and white.  I need a baby shower card for my soon-to-be great niece, and thought this would be a good color combination.   I have to admit though, the end result is not at all what I started making.

As this card evolved, i decided that I wanted to have both sides of the baby elephant showing on the card, so I used a Dutch fold card I found on Pinterest, as posted by Lovenstamps.com.  It is such an easy card to make and it took me much longer to do the card than it should have.  However, it’s relaxing and fun to watch a pile of paper, some ink, punches, stamps, and markers come together in a card I can use.

Here’s my card:

I love this fun fold!  So many possibilities!
