Loving the Tic Tac Toe Challenges.

Welcome to the Casually Crafting Blog Hop.

Screen Shot 2021-03-16 at 5.43.03 AMWe are a group of Demonstrators from around the world that have joined in on this Casually Crafting Blog Hop.  Why is it called casually Crafting?  That is because this Blog Hop is aimed for the Casual Crafters.  These are crafters that do not have all the tools like a Cut and Emboss.  I find this is my biggest challenge.  I usually use my Cut and Emboss for everything that I make.  My solution.... Fussy Cut!  I really like to fussy cut so this is really not a problem for me.  So this is the way that you can cut all Stamp sets without a die cutting machine.

It is a Tic Tac Toe Challenge.

I used the first line down, Animals, Spots and Red!  I actually turned this into a Mystery Challenge that I do every Wednesday.  It helps me do the challenge and then lets me see what others do with it.  I decided to use the Wild Cats Stamp Set.  I made a Snow Leopard.  I had a hard time with the Red element and that was the way I could work it in.    Here is my card and I will be sure to include the supplies below.

I also made a frame with the trimmer and not like I would normally would do with the rectangle stitched dies.  Check out the video and I show how I did that.

I also showed how to do some  basic masking.  The video is full of tips and tricks for a beginner to casual crafter.

I have the measurements here for a quick reference:

Basic Black: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored @ 4 1/4"

Basic White: 3 5/8" x 4 7/8" for the front piece and 3 3//4" x 5" for the inside, 3" x 5" for the images, scraps for sentiment

Cherry Cobbler: 3 3/4" x 5"

Make sure that you check out the video for all those tips and tricks along the way.
