CCC #29....

Hello friends!!  Tuesday is here and that means time for a brand new CASology challenge!!  This week is going to be a fun one as the cue word is "game".  Given the creativity of everyone who plays along with CASology on a regular basis I know there are going to be some super creative cards in the line up.   You can get all the deets here.   Our guest designer this week is the very talented Christine.  And this week we have a sponsor:  Fresh Squeezed Stamps!!




Okay... going to admit this cue word was really a tough one for me.  I spent alot of time figuring out what I was going to do.  I even made a trip to my favorite stamp store for some inspiration.  Thankfully that trip did the trick and I came home with several different ideas.  I ended up using my MFT alpha dies to create my tic tac toe board.  I created the grid using some strips of hot pink card stock and then die cut the "Xs" and "O".  I backed the negative space with dark red card stock.  A fishtail flag was cut and then stamped with the sentiment.  A bit of bling finished things off.  Despite the grid being relatively large in size I still managed to keep things CAS by limiting my die cutting and embellishments. 

Thanks for stopping by.... make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth, Judy, Maureen, Meghan and this week's guest designer, Christine. Can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! dark pink and dark red; Dies:  My Favorite Things alphabet and fishtail flag stax dies; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Rhinestone:  Want2Scrap

Brilliant! Love the way you used the negative die cuts and how you placed the sentiment (I always find that one of the trickiest parts of card making...)
