Tic-tac-toe Blog Hop Challenge

Hello and welcome to our newly re-vamped monthly blog hop! This month we at Ink.Stamp.Share are participating in a Tic Tac Toe challenge. Now this is my first time doing this challenge, but the rules are simple. We are given a 'board' and we just choose a line and utilize all three items in that line on your card. Got it? Let's play!

Here's our Tic Tac Toe board:

For my card, I decided to do the top horizontal line which consists of Christmas, Embossing and Circle. And here's what I came up with...
Fun, huh?! The moment I saw the candy cane I immediately saw a sled. And who better to ride a Christmas sled than a Christmas Bella?! I thought she looked cute! 

For instructions on how I created my card, I made a video tutorial down below. Full disclosure, I did the video in a rush and made a few mistakes in the process so I apologize for that! If you have any questions, just lemme know. 

Thank you for joining me today and please continue to hop along with our creative team and see what lovely projects they have created for this challenge! Hope to see you next time. Happy crafting!

  1. Phoebe, your card is so beautiful! I absolutely love your artistic card. I love how you have used your creativity to make this card. The mirror image technique you use is great! I never thought to use the silicone mat as the transfer device for this. Great technique! Thank you so much for sharing with us! I have learned a lot from watching your great video tutorial! ❤️
