TIME OUT#112 - Warm

Our challenge this week at TIME OUT is to get warm - definitely seasonally appropriate as we are starting to enjoy the summer heat :)

There are a lot of different ways you can interpret being warm - here is my take on it:

I made this card for my brother - his 40th birthday is coming up and I thought he might appreciate a funny card. I actually made the panel quite a while ago (years!) - I used yellow, orange, and red alcohol inks on a panel of glossy card stock and then added some additional alcohol ink to the panel through a TCW flame stencil. I loved the effect it created but couldn't figure out how to use it on a card until I saw the Shenanigans stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays and thought it would be fun to combine the greetings with the panel. 

If you like the sentiments, that stamp set could be yours since our sponsor for this challenge is CAS-ual Fridays, and they are offering a $25 gift voucher to the winner :)

Our talented guest designer this week is Marieke .- her cards are gorgeous beyond words so make sure you check them out!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

TIME OUT #111 - Holiday Cards

We have another challenge for you at TIME OUT - we are looking for holiday themed cards with an optional one-layer twist. 

These can be summer holiday themed cards - but I went with a Christmas holiday themed card:

This one started out as a one-layer but I eventually trimmed it down and put the panel. I die cut the Simon Says Heart Mandala from some freezer paper and ironed it onto some Tim Holtz water colour paper. I used my Minc for this - it works brilliantly. I then added the water colour - I used shimmer water colours (my latest obsession :) ) to add some colour to the background before removing the freezer paper mask. I heat embossed the greeting from the Altenew Peace On Earth set in silver - the greeting is God Yul which is Merry Christmas in Danish. I added a few gems for a finishing touch.

We have a great Guest Designer with us for this challenge - Ishani from Quillish is joining us - she is a regular player at Time Out and she has a fun style so make sure you stop by to see her work.

Our sponsor for the challenge is Seven Hills Crafts, a great source for craft supplies in the UK and Europe. They will be sending a goody bag to a random entry that incorporates the one-layer twist.

So take some TIME OUT and play along with us!
