Challenge Seven + A Few Announcements

Hi everyone and welcome back to another Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge! Before we get to today's challenge and see projects from our design team we have a few of announcements. First, Ka, the challenge creator is currently away from the challenge blog for a while due to a surgery she had last week. We wish her a speedy recovery!

Secondly, we had to say goodbye to Stephanie as she step down from our design team last month due to a health protocol she's on. Stephanie will definitely be missed and we pray that this treatment will only help her and keep her strong.

We have asked Amina Ishfaq from our Social Media Design Team to fill in the spot and we're very excited to have her join the main design team. Welcome Amina! You can see all of her work on her blog at My Lime Journal.


And lastly, our Creative Fools Blog Hop hosted by our designer, Nora Noll starts today (9 a.m. CST exactly)! Come hop with us for some "punny" inspirations and win some awesome goodies! See you back here in just a little bit!


Okay, back to our challenge.  For this challenge, we'd love for you to take some inspiration from the challenge board below using three elements in a row of your choice. Whatever rows you chose and are inspired by is what we challenge you to create!


You are playing for one of the following 3"x 4" stamp sets. The winner will get to choose the stamp set of their choice. If you already have all three in your stash, why not play to give one of these sets as a gift for one of your crafty friend? You can click on the links below to read more about each stamp set.



Here's some inspiration from our design team members.


Lindsey chose to do the first column down: bunny, decorative frame and washi tape.



Shannon also worked with the first column down: bunny, decorative frame and washi tape.



Olesya chose the first row horizontally: bunny, pocket and tag.



Nora chose the last row down for her card: tag, kraft, and potted plant.



Tracie also chose the third column down: tag, kraft and potted plants.



Amina also were inspired to work with the third row down: tag, kraft and potted plants.

Thank you for joining us in our 7th challenge. Please read the "Challenge Rules" tab at the top of the blog to be eligible for the prize. You have until Friday, April 15th at 11:55pm CST to submit your entries. We can not wait to see what you create! HAVE FUN!!!

  5. Hi! Tracie, I managed to get a card together for the challenge. I like the idea of having choices (tic tac toe,) but meeting some requirements at the same time. Thanks for inviting me to play.

    1. So happy you were able to play, Jeanne. Hope to see you again. The challenge has gotten me to use some items I typically don't. I like the learning and also seeing what everyone comes up with. It is so much fun!
