I made this cutie last weekend for Stamping Smiles Tic Tac Toe #10:

Here's the board:

I wasn't just "oozing" art onto paper here... this was a case of "get 'er done," but I love the colors, and it is a style I believe the recipient will like-- and the new baby's nursery is mint and grey... plus, at the shower, somebody made her a mint and grey blanket with owls! :)


  • Distress Ink in Evergreen Bough and Hickory Smoke daubed through a Martha Stewart stencil
  • The gray punched circle is Core'dinations with a NBUS owl stamp. The pearls are actually Scribbles puff paint (!) and the sentiment was written with a Zig Emboss Writer. Owl and sentiment embossed with Recollections white EP
  • Just gotta say, I think I need to round the corners...


  1. Hi Mimi!! The chevron background looks stunning!! Love your circle own embellishment too!! Really great take on this tic-tac-toe challenge!! :) HUGS

  2. How cute is THIS!! I love that you used TWO different columns for this card. You rocked this challenge. Thanks for playing with Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe challenge!

  3. Mimi the Image Owl is cuuutee
    and love the placement on your card
    the chevron looks wonderful with these colors
    adorable card my friend
    will be the winner...

  4. Picking up colors and elements the receiver has used for the new baby is a great idea to make the card even more personal... I like the whole softness of this look.
