Nature's INKspirations

#JOSTTT001 - January 2019 Design Team Inspirations

Today marks the beginning of the First Challenge at the Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe Challenge and I am excited to be one of the Design Team Members from around the globe!  You can select any three of the design elements in a row on the board going in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal direction.

      I chose one of the diagonals - Ribbon | Circle | Die Cut.

The Rooted in Nature bundle is the basis of the card.  The leaf branch was off stamped in Pool Party onto Whisper White cardstock.  The largest imprint leaf and die cut were ran through the Big Shot several times for the Mint Macaron leaves.  The Whisper White sprigs were found in a bag of happiness (leftovers from previous creations using the retired Limited Edition Snowfall Thinlits).

The Whisper White circle was die cut from the Stitched Labels Framelits which are currently part of the Detailed Stitches bundle.  The sentiment from Bunch of Blossoms was stamped in Pool Party.

The leaves and sprigs were arranged and adhered with Liquid Glue.  The Granny Apple Green Textured Woven Ribbon was adhered with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  The stitched die cut circle was adhered with a double layer of Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

One mustn't forget the inside of a card while creating.  The Pool Party layer was significantly reduced while the Whisper White layer was increased to allow for a personal handwritten message to the recipient.  The stamping was treated the same.
