Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #422 - Tic Tac Toe!

Excited to be guesting over at the Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge Blog for this challenge!  This time around the challenge is a cool Tic Tac Toe Board.  Pick three across, down or diagonally to create your card or other item and as is the rule for every challenge, you must include at least one die cut on your newly created project!  You can enter up to three times and you have until next Monday, June 3rd to submit your entries!  See the Die Cuttin' Divas Blog here for all of the rules (there aren't many).

I chose the bottom left corner to the top right; Three Colors, Polka Dots, and Gems!  Here's how I was inspired:

I used a fun paper pad from Pink & Main called Sunrise for my colors.  I chose Pink, Orange, and Yellow.  And of course they have Polka Dots!

I started with the Lovely Frames Die from Pink Fresh Studio.  I cut the die once from white cardstock and then out of each of the three different polka dot papers.  I adhered the outline of the white Frames panel to a white piece of cardstock and decided what order I'd insert the pink, yellow, and orange pieces inside the frames.  Once I was happy with the look, I adhered the polka dot pieces.  Then I die cut the entire panel using a Rubbernecker Stamps die for a simple stitched outline and added that to a notecard sized piece of cardstock.

Next I took a notecard sized piece of white cardstock and cut one of the Beautiful Blooms die cuts but placing it on the corner edge of the piece so that the die cut would fit nicely in the corner of my card.  I carefully removed the outline and the pieces to insert back into the flowers.  I used popup tape to keep them in place and then popped all of the extra pieces out of the leaves and then added the die cut to the corner of my card.

I used the Word Series: Happy Stamp and Die set for my sentiment and colored in the flowers on the word Happy with orange and yellow to keep with my color scheme for the Tic Tac Toe Board.  I had an extra piece of the Beautiful Blooms die from a previous cut and trimmed off the leaves and tucked them under the sentiment.  To finish it up, I added some sequins in pink and clear, and some Gems in black.. completing my diagonal on the board!

I am also playing along over at Pink Fresh Studio's May Challenge which is Anything Goes!  I was so lucky to win the entire April Release from the PFS blog and I am so grateful!    The dies that I used today were from that release.  So many thanks to Pink Fresh Studio!  I cannot wait to crack open the rest of the beautiful products I received!  And I'm playing along at Simon Says Stamp's Bright Colors Mood Board Wednesday Challenge!  Check all of these great challenges out!

And thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you'll hop on over to the Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge Blog and check out what the Design Team has created!  Get inspired and play along!  Which row will you choose??
