Embossing Paste - Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Happy Friday everyone! I'm sitting alone in my home...it's quite...it's strange! I've decided that I think I like a bit of chaos! The kids will be home soon and the husband too...and life will be back to normal! Some days I really enjoy the quite and my time to myself...today, not so much. I wonder why...what makes it different....SOMETHING TO PONDER!!

Remember a while back I talked about the Tic Tac Toe Challenge my Up-upline was having on our team Facebook page? I have lots of projects from that to share with you...well nine total anyway!!  

For today's card the challenge was to use Embossing Paste...so I did! My card base is Whisper White with at layer of Basic Black (4 1/8" X 5 3/8"). Next I used my brick wall mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks set and spread my embossing paste thinly onto a 4" X 5 1/4" piece of Pool Party cardstock. Once it was dry I adhered a stitched circle cut with the Stitched Shapes framelits from Merry Little Christmas designer paper. I cut two trees from vellum using the Card Front Builder thinlits...oh how I LOVE these trees! They are glued together at the top (hidden by the star) and at the bottom (hidden by the bows). I put two together because one was just too transparent.  The ADORABLE little stars in the top right corner are from the Patterned Pumpkins thinlits. They were left over from a pumpkin I cut out! They are just PERFECT up there in that corner!!! The star on the tree is cut with the Starlight Thinlits from Silver Foil sheets. The bows are made from Linen Thread and Silver 1/8" ribbon. I really LOVE how it turned out...not traditional at all...but I LOVE it!

I'll be sharing more of the Tic Tac Toe projects over the next couple of weeks and I have a World Card Making class on Saturday, October 7th so I'll be sharing those projects with you as well!  We'll be making 20 cards...four of five different designs! I'm SUPER EXCITED!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Join me again for more FUN ideas to INSPIRE your CREATIVITY!!!
