TIME OUT #106 - Photo Inspiration

We have another great challenge at TIME OUT - a Home Sweet Home photo challenge that has me thinking of Spring:

Lots of elements to be inspired by in this photo - those gorgeous yellow blooms, the fresh lemons, the pattern on the vase, and so much more. 

Our sponsor for this challenge is Altenew - they are generously giving a $20 gift voucher to the challenge winner - and this photo made me think of one of my Altenew stamp sets, Extra Special. Here is what I came up with:

I stamped the Extra Special bloom in layers of yellow and green Altenew inks, and then fussy cut it. I added some texture paste to the card base through a Tim Holtz stencil and I created a hexagon frame using some Spellbinders nesting dies. The greeting is from the Altenew Birthday Builder stamp set.

Our Guest Designer this week is the incredible Sarah from Funky Fossil - not only is she an amazing card designer (and former TO DT) but she has also designed the most amazing stencils. You really need to check out her designs.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

TIME OUT #105 - 4th Birthday

I am so excited to be celebrating the TIME OUT 4th Birthday with the rest of the team. I am so lucky to be part of this wonderful team with this group of incredibly talented designers - the challenges are amazing and we are truly blessed to have Sandie as our leader.

Our challenge this week is very appropriate - we are looking for cards inspired by these words:

We have an amazing sponsor for our Birthday challenge - Concord & 9th - not only are they offering a very generous $25 gift voucher to the challenge winner but they also gave each of the DT a gift voucher so we all made cards with their fabulous and inventive products.

 I used Hi There Bear to create this card:

I couldn't resist making more cards - so I also made these cards using the Everyday Tintables Card Pack with the Hooray die.  

The rest of the DT has some amazing Birthday cards using fabulous Concord & 9th products so make sure you check that out - along with our wonderful Guest Designer - Claire from Life on the Scrap Heap- her cards are always so beautiful.

We would be so happy if you took some TIME OUT to celebrate 4 years along with us!

There is still some time to play along with the current TIME OUT challenge:

Our challenge this week is sponsored by Poppystamps - they are very generously offering a $20 gift voucher to the winner of the challenge :)

Here is my bold card:

I chose a bold colour scheme (Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch), a bold triangle pattern, and a bold sentiment.

Make sure to check out how the rest of the design team were inspired to be bold - along with our very talented guest designer, Marieke - you are sure to find some inspiration - nd then take some TIME OUT to join us!
