Ready for more Tic Tac Toe Fun? A new challenge opened this morning, featuring a board designed by Susan Itell. We’ve got lots of amazing inspiration and I’ve got a new How to Wow video to teach you how to make a spinner card!
We’re rapidly approaching the end of our 2nd month over at Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and I can’t be more thrilled with participation! Our Designers are just amazing, and everyone playing along is creating such inspired projects! I’m sure this week will be no different as we have another great challenge board. I noticed that YELLOW likes to pop up a lot – it must be a really popular color right now since it keeps coming to mind for the Designers. So, I thought I would try to avoid it to show the versatility of the Tic Tac Toe style challenges… Let’s take a look at the board:
I really liked the idea of using a doily – as I have them, but I don’t often use them. Do you have that problem too? What products do you buy and then have trouble using? Leave a comment to share!
Anyway, I ultimately went with the middle row: Circle, Linen Thread, Birthday. I saw that combo and instantly thought of a technique that I wanted to share in a How to Wow video. So, that’s what I did – BUT, I also added in a doily, and I guess you could call the design feminine too. So, I guess I got half of the board 😉
Spinner cards aren’t that hard, but they sure do get a WOW from their recipient! It does take a little bit of planning, especially if you’re using a punch to make the cut-out. Today’s video is just a tad longer, but I go through some good tips to keep in mind as you’re making your spinner creation. Let’s watch!
Did you love it? Here’s some more tips to make this card a success!
- Dress up the cutout with a border of some type. If you’re using a layering shape, cut out the next larger size in a complimentary color (or metallic) for some extra pizzazz. OR, use a doily! Wow! What a great use for that element I have such a hard time with 😀
- Not just for babies – The Bundle of Love Specialty DSP is for anything that needs some glitz! Gold patterned on Very Vanilla is about as sophisticated as you can get. On the opposite side, the same patterns in Very Vanilla with either Soft Sky and Blushing Bride might be screaming “baby” to you, but to me, just says “classy”. It’s a must-have for any occasion.
- Linen Thread is a staple item! Use it to make shabby-chic/vintage swirls, and to get your spinner twirling. It’s super easy to use and add to any project.
