Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe Challenge February 2020 #JOSTTT014

Welcome to the Joy of Sets Challenge Blog for February.  This is a monthly challenge with a fun grid to chose a line from in any direction and then create a card or project.  I have been on the Design Team since the beginning, just over a year ago now and it is always lovely to see all the entries from around the world.  If you are chosen as the winner for the month, you get to be a Guest Designer for the following month and to add a winners badge to your blog.

So what I'm really trying to say is give it a go and take part.  Being given a grid to chose from is a challenge and it helps to give you a way to craft in perhaps a different way.  I always try and go a little out of my comfort zone and chose a line with things I might not always be comfortable in using. It's a way for me to hone my skills in areas I don't always use.

Here is this months grid - Click HERE to take part.

I chose Watercolour - Purple and Die Cuts

Purple is my favourite colour, so was an easy one.
Watercolour - I don't use watercolour paper often so this was the challenge element,
Die Cuts - I enjoy using die cuts in my projects.

So now it was time to put all three together on a card

Products I used
Highland Heather cardstock
Painted Labels Dies (for the swirly die)
Peaceful Moments stamp set for the sentiment
Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper - for the patterned paper 
Peaceful Poppies Elements - for the watercolour and velum poppies
Coloured the poppies with the Aqua Painter and Gorgeous Grape and Cherry Cobbler ink.

As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator you can buy all of these products from my online shop click HERE


  1. Love it Jane - I love the die - is that the same as the Swirly Birds?

  2. Thanks Fiona, No it has a stitched centre which is solid so you can use it for sentiments. I never got the swirly birds, but always wished I had x

  3. What a beautiful card, Jane! The purple looks stunning on the red floral background, and I love the die-cut framing your sentiment.

  4. Thank you Cheryl. The poppy background paper has purple tones in it (which don't really show on the photo) so it worked really well together & yes that die cut is a favourite. x

  5. This card is so you with the colors! Love that you used the Cherry Cobbler and Gorgeous Grape color combo for the poppies - they're so lush. Thanks for the inspiration. x

  6. its fun to see i got you out of your comfort zone a little bit. its a lovely card.
