Pretty Posy – Tic Tac Toe Challenge #7

Welcome to a new Tic Tac Toe Challenge! Today, designer Teresa brings some fun new elements to the mix! I chose to draw inspiration from the far right column: die cut; floral; and yellow. Remember, you can chose any row or column, or on the diagonal, just as long as you choose three in a row! Here’s my card for this challenge:


Yup, I pulled out the Beautiful Bouquet bundle again (said in my best Forrest Gump voice), I’m just so in love with it! Floral, well, that’s obvious; Die Cut, yup, I think I have that covered as well, and yellow! My first inclination was to make the entire CARD yellow, but I’m glad I went for a more balanced option today 🙂


  • Tip for the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle: Make sure you know which stamps have matching dies and which do not! Contrary to what I believed, the floral stems stamp does NOT work with the floral stems die! I took a bit of time in preparation to create, and laid all the dies out on a piece of 4.25 x 8.5  card stock and ran it through the Big Shot. This helped me identify what stamps and dies matched up. I cut the negative in half and now have it stored with the stamp set so I will forever more be able to be sure that the stamp I want has a matching die!

  • The flowers stamped on the background are what I think of as filler, or Baby’s Breath, and are stamped in Soft Sky.
  • I stamped the pink flowers on the background after I had laid all of the dies out. I love how Powder Pink blooms peek out and add a subtle touch of softness.


  • The other flowers are stamped in Crushed Curry (with Chocolate Chip centers), Perfect Plum and Island Indigo. The flower stems are stamped in Always Artichoke.
  • The bow is stamped in Island Indigo to play against the small flowers and the teeny tiny (adorable) tag is stamped in Crushed Curry to play against the largest flowers.


  • I added Blushing Bride and Island Indigo Enamel Shapes to the flower centers and then just added Wink of Stella to the Crushed Curry flower centers.
  • I couldn’t stop there so I unwound a length of Linen Thread and used just a half thickness of thread to loop behind the flowers, peeking out to add some texture!


  • I left off stamping a sentiment on the inside as I know I want to write a personal message. I keep the decorations minimal, with only Crushed Curry and Perfect Plum layers to mimic what what done on the outside.
  • The envelope liner is made using a retired pattern from the Regals DSP Stack that retired with the last catalog. I think it compliments the design nicely.

So…what do you think? Are you sold on the Beautiful Bouquet bundle yet? No? Okay, I’ll keep the samples coming! 😉

Please pop over to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge and see what the design team has created for you this week! I hope you are tempted to play along…we would LOVE to see you in the gallery!

Hugs until next time!

    Absolutely stunning bouquet of flowers, the background makes your die cut flowers pop off the page, and that bit of twine mimicking the bouquet is such a fun touch!
