One Stamp At A Time End of Summer Blog Hop

Happy Thursday! It is time for another One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop! We are back this month with a fun End Of Summer Tic Tac Toe. I can't wait to show you guys what we have all come up with!
It has been a busy couple weeks and I am starting to feel like I see light at the end of the tunnel. Yesterday was the last day of the county fair. We had a small car wash to help with the up coming dance season expenses. Taryn will have her dance assessments for this years dance season tomorrow, which means that the school year is right around the corner...sad but true!

Here in Colorado, this is the time of year that you can drive around here in on the Eastern Plains and see pastures full of Sunflowers in bloom. A lot of the farmers around here have been hit with some crop damaging hail. In fact I know one farmer who lost his whole wheat crop due to hail and in an effort to try to recover from his loss he planted Sunflowers.

We cooked up this amazing end of summer Tic Tac Toe for some amazing ideas. I honestly have made 4 Three in a Rows... but I am not bragging! Let me show you what I have whipped up for you today!

This amazing card started with Festive Farmhouse DSP. This will be available September! I couldn't wait to pull out this wood grain piece for today's card. I have stamped the fern like stamp from Painted Harvest with Mossy meadow ink. Keeping with the Granite Gray tone, I cut a smallish square stamped with the Burlap Background Stamp. Before layering that under my Sunflower, I used a fun new embossing folder. It is a Corrugated Embossing Folder that comes out at the same time as the DSP! Once this was all complete I stamped the leaves in Mossy Meadow and used the Leaf Punch. My sunflower was created by using So Saffron then Crushed Curry. It has a nice rich center of Soft Suede and was die cut using the 2nd to the largest Stitched Circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I have Used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the wood embellishments to the back before attaching it with Stampin' Dimensionals to the corrugated layer. A Nice knot with the braided Linen thread and a nice Copper Heat Embossed sentiment and this card was DONE!

I knew for my project that I needed to keep it easy! Dani Dziama came to my rescue with this cute little box! It only holds one Rollo... But it was oh so cute! I have provided another view of my card below.
