Simon Says....BINGO/Tic Tac Toe

To see the Stamp Fairy BLOG HOP post, please click HERE! Thanks!


This week, our challenge for you is a TIC TAC TOE/Bingo board! All you do, is choose 3 items in a row (across, down or diagonal) and use those 3 things in your project! Here is the board for this week:

Here is my project.  I used RIBBON, PUNCHES, and MULTI-FOLD.  I have made a new tent fold card that I just LOVE! It is free standing and SO easy! I got the tutorial from HERE.

Here is the front of the card:

Side view so you can see the "tent" & how it stands (you can see the flap, that fits under the image - if you open that you can see inside the card! AND it fits into a regular A2 envelope!):
AND a close up of the heart punch faux button I made.  I made this with my SU heart punch - punched 6 of them, ran them through my MESH embossing folder and glued them together.  I punched the holes with my crop-o-dile and ran the ribbon through.  Easy Peasy!!!   I just love the "country style" look it has! FUN!!!

I have used Together Under the Moon by House Mouse as my image, and coloured it with Gamsol & my Koh-i-noor pencils.  The sentiment is from a Simon Says exclusives set. The CS is Buckaroo Blue (SU) and the DP is from a DCWV adhesive mat stack that I've had FOREVER!!!

Dustin Pike challenge

The challenge this week at Dustin Pike is Anything But a Card  so I decided to join in this week with my birthday party package that I made for a commission sale.  I made the banner, cupcake sticks, goodie bag tags, food labels and the invitations.  

 Funny story about this project (bear with me!)  I got an email from a lady who loved my dragon card (see bottom picture) and wanted to know if I would make a dragon themed birthday party package for her 4 year old son.  I jumped right on it, for sure, because HOW FUN!!!  It was something I'd never done before and totally wanted to try it! SO, I said yes, figured out a price for it all, and we went ahead with it.  Only problem was, I was leaving for my vacation in Australia in 2 weeks.  She didn't need the stuff until October so I wasn't worried, I could do it when I got home.  Then, I found out she lived in Australia & I was bummed because there would be NO way I could get it all done & in the mail before I left so she'd have it in time (& not pay an arm & a leg for shipping!)  After chatting with her, I discovered she lived in Melbourne & that was our first stop on our trip.  All she needed right away was the invitations so I decided to make those first and take them with me & meet up with her.  SO crazy how it happened like that, but it worked out PERFECTLY!  We met up on our 3rd night in Melbourne, she got the invitations & I got extra Aussie $$ to spend! Wheeeee!!! THANKFULLY I packed the invitations in my carry on as Qantas lost our luggage for 3 days!  Phew!!!  I shipped the rest of the items to her in August & her son had a GREAT party!!!!

Here is the whole works!!! 

(the dragons on the banner represent things that the birthday boy likes to do!)

Cupcake sticks

Food labels:

Goodie Bag tags:

 And the invitations:

 The invitations had vellum in the doorway, and opened up like a drawbridge with the party information inside.  The card that was the inspiration for this party package is this one: 

Here are a few pictures that were sent to me of the party, which ALL had a great time! I especially love how she took the invitation & had it blown up into a poster & then she painted it (I hope that wasn't a copyright thing!! GULP!!)

How fun eh??

So, I am entering this into the Dustin Pike, ANYTHING BUT A CARD challenge!! Wish me luck!!!
