A cup of warm wishes

Hello, crafting friends!

Happy Thursday and welcome to another fun challenge at Tic Tac Toe! As usual, we aim to inspire you with a Tic Tac Toe board - this week brought to you by Felicita :)

I've chosen the bottom row - Rust/Any Colour/Gold Foil and/or Glitter - to make a versatile, no-stamping card that could be used for any occasion.

The main image is the Cup of Love stencil from Funky Fossil which I positioned off the edge of the card base. I masked the top off while I inked the rust cup and saucer, then masked off the cup to gently ink a neutral ink into the top part of the stencil.

Once the masks were removed, I used a gold pencil to accentuate the swirls and a pink coloured pencil for the hearts. To  finish the card, I sponged in a 'ground', attached a sentiment die cut from gold foil and added gold stickle dots for a touch of glitter.

Okay, so now it's your turn! Which row or column will you choose from this week's board - or how about one of the diagonals?! Do pop over to the Tic Tac Toe challenge site to admire the inspiration brought to you by the team. You'll find the Linky Tool at the bottom of the post and you'll be able to use it to upload your own creation. I can't wait to see what you make!

I'm linking this card up with Tristan's All Occasions challenge at Watercooler Wednesay :)

We've been hanging out with this little dynamo recently:

I feel I should gently point out to the leaders of the world that if it's renewable energy you're after, puppies could be the answer!!

Sending hugs,


  1. Beautiful warm colours and a great sentiment,nothing beats a comforting cuppa,

  2. This is fabulous Vicky I love the stencil for the 'steam' of the coffee the colours and that sentiment are perfect especially for this time of year, that little doggy is eye candy I wouldn't mind hanging out with him, lol.
