Painted Harvest and Tic Tac Toe challenge 045

I have such a hard time just choosing the way to play TTTC that often I just don't. Sad, I know, it's a great challenge. But today I looked at the new board put up and that top row just spoke to me, and a stamp set jumped into my head,  and honestly, that is the biggest decision.

This is Painted Harvest.  Sunflowers, right? Or is it? We have used it for Christmas and everything in between.  For this one I started with a brand new incolor, Blueberry Bushel.  I didn't know SU was missing a blue, but it was, and this is it. 

It's also the perfect set for using a stamp positioner, like the new Stamperatus.  Stampin Up's new positioner is in the new catalog and some of you have it already.

Here is the challege board, be sure to check out the team's posts and why not come and play.

See the top row? That was my choice. Floral, Metallic, Punch

My colors for this are: Blueberry bushel, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White.
I stamped 2 of the flowers on my white layer using a stamp positioner, then I made a mask, by stamping the flower and cutting around it and put it over the flower I was added a leaf to.  There are a couple of stamped leaves buried under the sentiment, but that is ok, it allowed me to position it for my last flower.

After stamping my last flower and cutting it out, then punching out the leaves, I put my sentiment piece down looking to see what the best placement would be. Added my leaves that had been punched and then put down my last flower using a dimentional.

This was truly a challenge fun to make!   I hope you enjoy and take away from it ideas for your own stamping.

Wow what a gorgeous card! So glad you played along with us this time at the Tic Tac Toe challenge - :)
I know what you mean about the biggest challenge being "which way" - sometimes that's the case for me too.

Such a beautiful design... I'm so excited you played along with us this week. I want you to know I have a hard time myself. I try to remember that the goal with the boards is to use those crafty supplies I normally wouldn't. I do hope you join us again. Have a great week.

Your card is absolutely outstanding! I just made some note cards yesterday with the Harvest Stamp.

One of my favorite colors to use is Blue, I am really excited to buy this Blueberry color. There are a number of cute designs out there made with this color.

I apologize for asking a dumb question. I do want to make this card!

What is the mask for? Thank you for explaining.
