TIME OUT#71 - Christmas

The TIME OUT Challenge this fortnight is all about Christmas cards - with the optional twist of including shimmer and/or glitter. This is a pretty easy twist for me since I include glitter on almost all my Christmas cards :)

We have a great sponsor for this challenge, Uniko Stamps is offering a prize for the winner and also a random draw amongst those entries who include the twist.

We have a great Guest Designer with us this week too - I am sure that you are already familiar with Valentyna and her amazing work - but if not, make sure you check her cards out at Flourishtina - you will definitely be impressed!

Here is what I came up with:

This card is one that I mass produced on the weekend. I used the Memory Box die on some white cardstock. I then backed the cardstock with Be Creative tape and added different colours of microfine glitter. I just love the effect!

So join us in Christmas card fun and make to link up at TIME OUT!
Thanks for stopping by!

TIME OUT#70 - Photo Inspiration

This week at TIME OUT, we have a photo inspiration challenge for you - another beautiful Home Sweet Home photo chosen by Sandie.

Lots of pretty elements in this card to focus on - the wings, the flowers, the colours... what inspires you? You might want to check out how the rest of the DT was inspired, along with our fabulous GD this week, Hazel from Hazel's Paper Designs has a wonderful card to share.

Here is what I did:

I took my inspiration from the mirror in the picture - I loved the geometric style of it. I am on a little bit of a Christmas card streak right now - so I immediately thought of this new Memory Box tree die. I die cut it 4 times from some grey-brown cardstock and then glued them together. I then die cut it again from some silver foil cardstock and inlaid the circles inside the tree - a little bit hard to see in the picture because they are so reflective. The stamped greeting is from MFT (one of my favourite sets for holiday greetings), and the card panel was mounted on a piece of pink cardstock to match the colour scheme in the inspiration photo. So it may not be the most traditional holiday card but it works for me :)

So now it's your turn to take some TIME OUT and play with us!
