Stamping Inkspirations June Blog Hop Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge

It's time to hop along with the Stamping Inkspirations June Blog Hop and this month we have a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge to help spark our creativity. Our Design Team will be sharing their wonderful projects and ideas to help inspire you. How does the challenge work? Well, just like in the game, you pick three boxes in a row either horizontally, vertically or diagonally, to use to create your project. There are so many different options, which means you will see a wonderful variety of projects. 
For my card, I chose to use the bottom horizontal row with stars, emboss and yellow as the elements for my design. I don't use Lemon Lolly very often, so I chose to use that as my yellow because it coordinates with one of the stars patterns in the Bright & Beautiful 6"x6" Designer Series Paper. This pretty yellow is perfect for a baby card design and I chose the Warm Welcome stamp set to create the sentiment, which I heat embossed with Gold embossing powder. I also added a little texture with the new Eyelet 3D Embossing Folder to help step up the design. I thought this design would be perfect as a non-gender specific baby card while still keeping it clean and simple.

For this card design, I chose a monochromatic color palette using just Lemon Lolly and Basic White with a little Gold embossing for a touch of elegance. I didn't want a design that was too frilly or fancy in keeping with the neutral color palette. The stars in the designer series paper were perfect for the background and I added a middle strip that I embossed with the new Eyelet 3D Embossing Folder that gives the card texture and an almost quilted look to the design. For the focal circle, I punched out a circle using the 2 3/8" Circle Punch and heat embossed the sentiments and shoes image with Gold embossing powder to help step up the design. I love that the cute little shoes signify the new addition to the family without being specific to a baby boy or baby girl. I added the focal circle to the center of the embossed strip with Stampin' Dimensionals to help pop it up. To complete the design, I added several of the Lemon Lolly Dots from the Rainbow Adhesive Backed Dots for a tone on tone look. Do you think I met the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge requirements?
