Craftmad January Swap - Tic Tac Toe

Over at Craftmad this month our swap was two cards using this Tic Tac Toe board.

For my first card I went diagonally with Stitching, Pearls and Glitter.  I had a fun time paper piecing this lovely image (by Ruth) using blue glitter paper and colouring her with my copic pens.  I did some faux cross stitching down the side of the image and used my new word stamps (a christmas gift) on the edge of the card.

This card I selected the first column of the Tic Tac Toe board - Stitching, Embossing and Buttons.  The patchwork of square papers is another of my attempts to use up my scrap paper stash, so you will see a couple in the near future.  I am following in Beccy's steps… here to see her inspiration.  I punched out the squares and attached them to a piece of scrap cardstock….a colour I don't use as it is all hidden.  Then I ran it through an embossing folder.  Did a little faux stitching around the edge.   I really liked how Beccy had attached her buttons on her card so I gave that a go too.

Pop on over to our Craftmad Pinterest board and see what everyone else came up with using the Tic Tac Toe board


  1. It's intereeting to see what elements of the board we each picked to use. We have only picked one line the same!!
    My cards have only just gone off so can't show them yet. Both your choices are great. Hugs Mrs A. ps. Teetoring on the brink of pininterest.

  2. It is fun to see the different results for the cards. Big decision Mrs A. Pinterest is a great time waster but it also full of inspiring creations that would get you into the craft room and off Pinterest. :-)

  3. Two great cards Merry and how effective the embossing looks on the patterened paper, adds a whole new dimension.
