Laura's Loft December Challenge: Tic-Tac-Toe

 Hi Everyone,

Today I am participating in Laura's Loft December Challenge.  The Challenge for December is making a card using prompts from the Tic-Tac-Toe Board below. 

Please join us in our Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge.  The Challenge runs until midnight of January 2, 2016.  And there are two great prizes for the winning cards!!!!

Runner Up
 To be eligible to win these prizes go to Laura's Loft and enter your creations in the Inlinkz.  
My Take on the Challenge
I decided to use the diagonal prompts from top left to bottom right.  My card includes Sequins, Shaker Card, and Die Cutting. 
To make this card I selected several pieces of decorative paper.  I die cut a circle in both papers to make my shaker card.  I stamped and die cut the penguin from The Greeting Farm "Let It Snow" stamp set and matching die set.  I colored the penguin with markers and glued it to the card.  I used Glacial Bliss Sequin Mix in the shaker with a little snow also on the bottom.  For the embossing element of the card I embossed the blue snowflakes on the front of the card using WOW Nice Ice Blue Embossing Powder.  I love the way the card turned out!
I love doing Challenge Cards!  They make you use your creative juices to put your own spin on your card.  There will be a Challenge every month at Laura's Loft so please make sure you check back to join in the fun. 
All these great products and much more can be purchased from Laura's Loft.  Laura has a wide variety of all things great for card making and scrapbooking. She even has gift certificates available.  
I hope everyone enjoyed my card.  Have a great holiday season!!!

A Fun Card Using Products from Laura's Loft

Hi everyone,

 Today I am featuring a card made from products that can be purchased at Laura's Loft.  I am very proud to be a member of the Design Team at Laura's Loft.  I am in the company of many great card designers!!!
Here is the wintry card I made.

 For this card I used The Newton's Nook Designs Stamp Set "Frozen Friends", Glacial Bliss Sequin Mix, and WOW! Nice Ice Blue Embossing Powder.  I absolutely love the way it turned out!!!

I cut a white piece of card stock to 3 3/4" by 5 ".  I stamped and colored the snowman.  I made a mask using masking paper to cover the snowman and inked the blue background over the mask. I stamped the snowflakes with a clear ink and sprinkled on WOW! Nice Ice Blue Embossing Powder.  I then heat embossed the snowflakes.  I glued sequins from the Glacial Bliss Sequin Mix and added a sentiment.  I cut a piece of black card stock to 4' by 5 1/4" to frame the white card stock.  I then placed this on an A2 card base made with white card stock.

I love the products available at Laura's Loft.  This stamp set can be used all winter long.!  I hope you enjoyed my card.  If you have any questions, leave a comment or send then to
