SIP Challenge #11 Tic-Tac-Toe Masculine card

Hello everyone!  I am pretty pumped about this week's Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!  First of all I love Tic-Tac-Toe Challenges because you get so many styles, themes and looks from one Challenge. Secondly, I have been semi-addicted to the combination of the Stampin' Up! World Map and Traveler set and when I see the opportunity to make a masculine card.. well that's where I end up going!  lol
Here's the cool Tic-Tac-Toe Board to choose your 3 in a row from!

I went right down the middle row for my card with Masculine-Die Cut-Button combination!

I started out with a base of Baked Brown Sugar and layered in  Lost Lagoon and then a Watercolor Paper layer that I stamped the World Map Stamp on with Black Stazon and then watercolored.  I added some crumb cake and baked brown sugar ink to distress the map.  The train image from Traveler was stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock with Early Espresso Ink.  It was die cut with the MFT Zig Zag Circles as well as the Baked Brown Sugar Circle.  The burlap ribbon on the left side was cut and unraveled on the sides  and had a piece of blue twine run over it with a gold button tied to the bottom where the sentiment flag was placed with a lost lagoon backing.

Now I have a question for you.  Does the layout of this card look familiar at all?  Well I used the sketch from week #9 for my design inspiration!  Yep, make sure you check out the challenges every week!  We've had some awesome sketches, color combos and inspiration photos!

Here are the Stampin' Up! Supplies that I used:

  1. I don't know why I don't already own this stamp set, Tina. How perfect for a masculine creation. I love how you combined it with the map stamp, and also the texture of the burlap.
