TIME OUT #97 - Inspired By Words

The challenge this fortnight at TIME OUT is to create a project inspired by these words:

We have a wonderful guest designer with us this week too - Izzy from Izzyscrap has a wonderful CAS style always brings gorgeous inspiration.

I was inspired by the "celebrate all that is good today and everyday", and created a New Year's card:

I love this card in real life but it was really hard to capture in the photo. 

To make it, I started by applying Deco Foil transfer gel through the Tim Holtz stencil. I let it dry and then ran it through my Minc to apply the pink to yellow foil. I also foiled a piece of toner coated card stock with the same foil, and then die cut the WPlus9 "happy" from it. I white heat embossed 2018 on a smaller piece of the foiled card stock. The die cut, 2018, and the Taylored Expressions frame were all popped up with foam tape for dimension.

So now it's your turn to play along with our inspired by words challenge - with a chance to win a $10 gift voucher from Stamplorations!

TIME OUT #96 - CASE-ing Michele

This week at TIME OUT, we are so lucky to be CASE-ing the incredible Michele from I Card Everyone. Michele has such an amazing CAS style and always uses her stamps in the most creative ways - she is a constant source of inspiration :)

The card Michele has made for us to CASE is gorgeous - check it out:

There are so many different elements of this design that can be CASE-d: the colour scheme, the die cutting, the masking and sponging.... I was inspired by the layout and that's what I went with:

My card is a one-layer design. I used the SSS Holiday Borders to stamp the three borders in three different colours of dye ink. I then stamped over the borders with VersaMark and brushed on some Perfect Pearls. I love the metallic effect that technique creates - it adds the perfect amount of shimmer for a simple design. The greeting is from MFT - stamped in silver pigment ink and brushed with Perfect Pearls as well.

So that was my take but make sure you check out the rest of the design team and our fabulous guest designer, Bobby from Bits and Pieces for more inspiration - we can't wait to see how Michele's card inspires you - so take some TIME OUT to join us :)
