All Things Stampin'Up! All Holiday Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the All Things Stampin'Up! All Things Holiday! I am so excited to share today's project with you. I made a tic-tac-toe board for Christmas. I got the idea from one that my family had growing up. Ours was Halloween and made just out of felt but we really enjoyed playing it. When I received the Stocking Die Accents I decided they would be the perfect size. I started with a board that was made out of Candy Cane Christmas Designer Fabric. I used two layers with batting between. I used a pink felt and the Tasteful Trim Die to make the board squares. I sewed the felt scallops on with my sewing machine.

The ornaments and trees were also cut out of felt. I glued two layers together with the Tombow Multipurpose Glue so they were a little strudier, then decorate them with more felt accents made with the Tasteful Trim Die and Dazzling Details. There is a close up below and of course you can add more accents if you want but for me I thought I would keep them simple.
Then because I wanted it all to be easy to store I added ribbon to the back and I am able to roll it all up and all the pieces stay inside ready for the next round of tic-tac-toe.
I had the chance to make a card that my oldest son and I had sketched out the other day so I wanted to share it with you today too! He is inspired by return address labels that we received from our Insurance Agent and we thought I matching card would be perfect. The supplies I used are Real Red Card Stock and Classic Ink Pad, Whisper White, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, and Garden Green Card Stock, Serene Snowflake and Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Sets, Big Shot, Scallop Oval Frame, Snow Burst Textured Embossing Folder, Modern Label Punch, Heart to Heart Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Circle, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Owl Builder Punch, and Blossom Petals Builder. Thank you for stopping by today and now I will send you on your way to the next stop which is Chelsea Malouf I hope you enjoy the hop!
