OWH Virtual Cardmaking Party Round 6

Still working on the  Virtual Card Making Party this weekend for OWH.  There are ten challenges and the linkys will stay open until Sunday September 8th.  So there is lots of time to play along.  This challenge was hosted by Sybrina K at Scarpping with Purpose.  She challenged us to make a card for a kid using the Tic Tac Toe grid below.  

I went straight down the middle taking a cue from Paula at Handmade by Paula.  She reminded me of this cute "Punny" stamp set that was an OWH fundraiser.  You can still get them at Stamper's Best.

The turtle is paper pieced onto Jillibean Soup Irish Farm House Soup and colored with Distressed Markers.  I used OWH Sketch #68 as my inspiration.  Sentiment is stamped with StampinUp! Old Olive ink.  Still three more challenges to go.  

Happy Crafting!


  1. Donna,

    This is ADORABLE! I love that the shell matches the background paper and how the sentiment pops off the green. Then there are those nice little touches, like the faux stitching. And, of course, the coloring is so well done. :)

    Your card is sure to bring a HUGE smile to a little one's face! Thanks so much for playing along this weekend.

  2. This turtle looks really cool- great choice of DP for the paper piecing! I find this card SO cute!

  3. Hi Donna, I'm stalking your blog today and I love all of the inky tags from the Creative Chemistry. I'm studying them a lot because I love the ink and the collage type designs. This turtle, though, made me stop and leave a comment cause I just love the paper piecing you did with him. I'll be taking my stamp out real soon and giving that a try. Love him!


Thank you so much for your comments. I read and enjoy all of them.
