Happy Valentine's Day, house friends

So glad you're here for the Tic, Tac, Toe challenge at The House That Stamps Built.  I think you're going to love this board, it has a lot of creative options.  My card is not a Valentine's card, but it has flowers and recently I've been in a "floral" kind of mind set.  

My card uses RI Stamps #912-K "Tulip Bouquet" and the sentiment is RI#9206-H "Beautiful Days" (one of my favorite all time sets).  I stamped the flowers in various positions along the outside of the card panel and colored them with Copic Markers.  I used a scalloped frame die from MFT blueprints.  

As I've said, I've been in such a "flower" mood lately and am really enjoying creating my own virtual card garden during these cold, snowy Maine days.   

I hope you found some inspiration here and will play along.  Here's the challenge board:  My card uses all the elements from the vertical right-hand side - pastel colors, Stitching (faux), flowers.  

So what will you create with our TTT challenge?  

Need more inspiration?  Well just take a look at these blogs of my team mates.

Hello all you Technique Junkies fans and blog friends!

It's so refreshing to be working with pastels in my craft room and on my projects these days.  Winter is long here in Maine....we create our own pick-me-up moments.  

I've got a pick-me-up for you....with a 10% discount on your entire order of Technique Junkies Stamps.  Just use my discount code (TJ10CHERI) at check out and "bam"...10% off all your stamps.

To create this card I did a color wash for the background (it's not watercolor paper, so I had to be careful to not use much water).  The stamp is one of my all time favorite TJ stamps, "Afternoon Tea" and the sentiment is "You Are Amazing".  I colored the image with my Chameleon Colortone Pencils then added some light splatters with some of the same watercolors I'd used in the bg wash.  

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to use my discount code if you'd like a 10% off your entire stamp order at Technique Junkies Stamps.
