TIME OUT #58 Reminder

There is still another week to play along with our current photo inspiration Home Sweet Home challenge at Time Out. Here is the photo:

Last week, I took my inspiration from the stained glass squares - and this week those squares were still inspiring me :)

This is one of those cards that went in a few different directions as it was coming together, and almost ended up in the wastebasket a few times.... but I stuck with it and am ok with the final product. 

I started out by clear embossing the SSS Grid background stamp onto the bottom left corner of the card. I then coloured the squares with my Zigs (trying to use the inspiration photo colours). I added a die cut vellum circle to soften the colours a little bit. The die cut Happy was done with MFT silver foil cardstock using an older (but still favourite!) Studio Calico die. SOme flat silver sequins from my stash seemed the right finishing touch.

We would love to see how the photo inspires you - so please take some TIME OUT to join us for this challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh this is gorgeous and a fabulous take on the inspiration pic. Great job with those little squares!

  2. Suxh an elegant way of using the colours! And such a contrast with the photo! Elegant and perfect for a BD-card! Hope you have a fun weekend planned!

  3. Gorgeously graphic, Jill ... and soft and delicate at the same time ... brilliant! Hugs, Anita :)

  4. I absolutely love this Jill. The subtle embossed background is perfect to add these coloured panels and I love how you have highlighted these in such a subtle way with the vellum. Adding the sentiment in silver with sequins is a winner to me. Superb card Jill, amazing CAS take on the photo x
