Circle Celebration - Colour Challenge - InspireINK Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

Today I am hopping with the InspireINK group and it's a colour challenge TIC TAC TOE board.

I have chosen Bumblebee, Whisper White and Night of Navy for my colours and there is a video tutorial to go with this blog post which will be available on 22nd February so please check back then.


1 piece of bumblebee card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of night of navy card stock 4" x 5 3/4" and scraps for the sentiment layer
2 pieces of basic white (whisper white) card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and a scrap for the sentiment
Circle Celebration stamp set
Flowering Vine dies
Stampin Cut & Emboss machine
Night of Navy ink
Bumblebee ink
2" circle punch
1 1/2" circle punch
Vine Design stamp set
Multipurpose adhesive
Simply scored
Bone folder


On the long side, score the bumblebee card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Die cut the label and punch out  the circle from the night of navy mat layer (if you remember) before adding it to the card front.

I have used several of the stamps in the circle celebration stamp set to make a random pattern (you can watch how I do it in the video, click the link above).  When you are happy with the designs, adhere this layer to the card front.

Add the die cut label on dimensionals across the centre of the card and stamp a sentiment on a scrap of basic white and punch out with the smaller circle punch, then adhere it to the larger navy one.  Add these on dimensionals to the label on the card front.

Stamp a design on the remaining piece of basic white and/or another sentiment and adhere to the inside of the card.

I hope that you like my card and will give it a try.  Please pop over and see what everyone else has made using this TIC TAC TOE board, you are sure to get lots of inspiration
