At Home With You for Tic Tac Toe 02 Challenge

Welcome home! Or, at least, welcome to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #2! I really stretched myself for this one. I knew I wanted to play with my new bundle called At Home With You. I love it - more about that later. Check out the TTT02 challenge board ~

I went diagonal with "wood, gray, and hexagon." That last element was my challenge!

At Home With You is a super cute new bundle that features a door that really opens, and all the little floral arrangements that you might want to put around your door. Click this link to check out the video from Stampin' Up! ...

Here is my open door...

And you can see how the card looks when you open the whole thing...

I dug into my retired stash of papers to find this grass paper. It was from our old DSP called Adventure Bound. Maybe some of you still have it as well? I couldn't resist the realistic looking grass around the doorstep! 

Oh, boy, here I go again... I needed something "hexagon" to fit in the challenge, and while I could have used the textured embossing folder on the house, I had already gone too far with the card to go back. So I found a little hexagon Urban Underground embellishment that worked pretty well for a doorknob. There, all bases covered! Gray (check), wood (check), hexagon (check).

The wooden door is from Wood Textures DSP Stack #144177 in the new 2017-18 Annual Catalog, page 187.

I created the vertical texture on the house by scoring every 1/2" with my Stampin' Trimmer, and the texture on the walkway is created with the Brick Wall embossing folder.

I colored the flower pots with Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, and Sahara Sand stamp pads and my Blender Pen.

I'm excited to use this bundle around the holidays with the Fall Decor and Christmassy wreaths and pots. So cute and so fun!
