Tic Tac Toe fun for RR #82.....

No automatic alt text available.

Hello everyone: The RETRO RUBBER challenge has a Tic Tac Toe theme for you to play with, lots of fun and fabulous combinations for you to choose from, so I hope you get inspired and come and join us in our gallery.  Here is the card I made using the first vertical line, Pink, Twine and Birthday.

This image is from a retired Stampin' Up! set called "Happiness Shared" that came out back in the 2010-2011 catalog, I bought it right when it came out. The image is stamped with Stazon black ink and colored with SU markers and Prismacolor pencils, I added a bit of splatter with the "Gorgeous Grunge" (2013-2014 retired), the sentiments are from a Power Poppy set called Best Day Ever, the pattern paper is from a retired line from Lili of the Valley, the little birthday candle is a button I bought at the local craft store, the twine from my stash and the decorative border was punched with a Martha Stewart punch.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The lacy border is from a retired SU set called "Delicate Details" from the 2017 SAB catalog, the sentiment is from another Power Poppy set called Potted Primroses, the gift box is from a "There She Goes" set called "Wrapped in Joy" and the balloon is from a Hero Arts set called "Happy Today".
I really love combining different stamp sets to create my cards.
I hope you get inspired to come and join my teammates and I at the RETRO RUBBER gallery.  This challenge is a very special one because we are welcoming the fabulously talented LeAnne Pugliese as the newest member of the team, her blog weeinklings is amazing, be sure to go visit, you will be so happy you did.

Thank you for sharing with us at RETRO RUBBER, please read our rules, the most important one is that ONE OF THE STAMPS YOU USE IN YOUR CREATION MUST BE AT LEAST ONE YEAR OLD, this challenge blog is dedicated to those older stamps that haven't seen ink in a while and they deserve to shine again. Please include the age of your stamp on your post.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Oh, my, gorgeous! What a beautiful stamp, love the PP sentiment, and look at that cute little candle! Really cute stamp inside, too. You're getting some good use out of those SU Delicate Details. Tic Tac Toe challenges are fun, and I do love using my older stamps. This flower is timeless!

What an utterly gorgeous floral image, coloured so wonderfully! The touches of grunge splatter are a great addition. Lovely card, Maria.

Ah, I missed out on that stamp set since I joined SU in the summer of 2010. I didn't know what in the world I was doing - I joined because Katy told me to. LOL Your birthday card is beautiful in pink and shows how versatile our challenge is since you, Heather, Claire and I used the same vertical row!! Have a great week, Maria!
