Stamping Style Tic-Tac-Toe


Let’s have some fun, with stamping style tic-tac-toe for the Paper Craft Crew challenge this week! It’s easy; just see the playing board below, and choose which ‘line’ you want to use to create. You can choose vertical, horizontal or diagonal.

All you have to do is use each of the 3 items in your chosen ‘line’. I decided to choose the first vertical line, so my project includes #simplestamping, metallic and favourite colour.


For the #simplestamping portion, I used just the outline image of the large flower in the Beautiful Day stamp set by Altenew.

The metallic part is obvious; I used copper embossing powder and copper foil – although I know the photo makes it look like gold! My favourite colour is blue – well, one of my favourites, anyway – so I chose a beautiful deep blue from Stampin’ Up!, called Pacific Point.


Cut a Pacific Point panel measuring 3 3/4″ x 5″. First, stamp the flower outline image onto a piece of masking paper, or large Post-It note, and cut it out. Place the mask where you want your front flower to be. Now, ink up the same image from the Beautiful Day stamp set in Versamark ink, and stamp it for the background flower. Remove the mask, cover the Versamark in copper embossing powder, and set it with a  heat tool. Now, ink up the stamp again in Versamark, and stamp the front focal flower, where you had the mask. Again, cover it with copper embossing powder, and heat set.

Normally, you would do the front flower first, and then mask it to stamp off the back flower. I did it in reverse order, so that the raised height of the embossing on the front flower wouldn’t interfere with the masking. You can do it either way.

Now cut a panel of copper foil, measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″. Since your blue panel will be covering most of the foil panel, you’re going to die cut the sentiment from the middle of this copper panel – and no one will know! Use your Big Shot with the My Favorite Things Birthday Wishes die, and die cut the sentiment. Attach it to the image panel using liquid glue. If you don’t like using liquid glue, you can attach a piece of Stick It adhesive paper to the back of the panel before die cutting; then you just have to peel off the backing, and stick the foil sentiment to the card front.

You can now finish off your card by attaching the image panel on top of the die cut foil panel with foam tape or squares. Then attach it to your card base of the same Pacific Point cardstock.

Trying to get a decent photo of foil/metallic images is not easy! This is a quick & simple card to make, but the foil & embossing make it look very stylish.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

    1. I’m glad you like the copper with the blue, Susan. I usually go with silver & blue, but thought I’d try something different!

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
