Friendly Christmas

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a fun Tic Tac Toe board for you:
No photo description available.
Here is what I created for your inspiration:
 I used the top row: Teddy Bears, stitching, gems/pearls AND the first column: Teddy Bears, Dimension, glitter.  I had a lot of fun using different elements on this one, specially the glitter and glitter paper!  I'm definitely a glitter girl.  I cut the "it's almost Christmas" stamp apart so I could stamp just the "Christmas!" on my card base.  Then I masked the "Merry" from the Christmas stamp so I could stamp and heat emboss that on a piece of black card stock to finish the sentiment.  I colored up the sweet little kitty to match my new kitten, who is pure black with just a little white patch under his chin.  The photo below show the poinsettia and the chunky glitter I used to make it sparkly!

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this photo.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my lift sidebar.

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Feline Friendly", "it's almost Christmas!" from the Holy Crap Set and "Christmas"
Dies: Spellbinders "Layered Poinsettias"; MFT free with $60 purchase stitched die
Punches: Fiskars "Apron Border"

How sweet - I have always loved this image - is so versatile. Awww a new kitty in your house - how sweet. We have a sweet calico named Callie that rules the roost. Anyway back to the card - what a beautiful layout, and so many elements to look at. Great job on this challenge.

There's so much I love about this card, Heather, but my favorite part is the sentiment - white on black + black on white. So creative! I also love how it looks like a peek into a window, and that adorable image of the cat snuggling up to the teddy bear.

Thanks for playing Tic-Tac-Toe with us at Cut it Up!
