TIME OUT #101 - Inspired By Words

The challenge at TIME OUT is all about projects inspired by these words:

So many different ways to be inspired by these words - I chose to focus on the word gift, and this is what I came up with:

A Tim Holtz stamp and some DP paper piecing... easy peasy :)  The greeting is from Studio Calico.

The rest of the design team has lots of fabulous inspiration to share - as does our incredible guest designer, Michele from I Card Everyone. We are so lucky to have her with us for this challenge :)

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is Birch Press Design - and they are offering the winner a $20 gift voucher.

We can't wait to see what you come up with - so take some TIME OUT and play along with us!
Thanks for stopping by!

TIME OUT #100 - Thankful

Happy New Year!

We have another year of fun challenges ahead of us at TIME OUT - and the for the first one, we are challenging you to be Thankful:

We are lucky enough to have two wonderful guest designers with us this week: Julee from Verve stamps is not only guest designing with us but is also offering the winner of the challenge a Verve stamp set. We are also joined by Bobby from Bits and Pieces - Bobby plays along with us almost every challenge so we are honoured to have her sharing her inspiration as a guest designer.

Here is my card:

I kept it very neutral and monochrome this week by sponging Fog and Stone ink through the layered Altenew stencil (layered dahlia) onto Fog card stock. This stencil is amazing - I love it when the product does all the work :)  I added a stacked Taylored Expressions die cut - it was cut from shimmer card stock even though you can't see it in the photo - and I added some Wink of Stella to the large flower on the left as a finishing touch. The panel was mounted onto a Fog card base.

I can't wait to see how you will be inspired by our Thankful challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
