TIME OUT #117 - Inspired By Words

Our TIME OUT inspired by words challenge this week is a good one:

Lots of words to be inspired by :)  - I decided to focus on the "toes in the sand" part and this is what I created (excuse the bad photography - I was having lighting issues):

I really wanted to create sandy footprints with the special sand embossing powder from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit. They are hard to see in the photo but I love how they look in real life :)  The rest of the scene was also created with stamps from the same set - I love the layered water stamps. A simple frame and sentiment to finish the card.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Uniko - they are offering the winner an in-stock stamp set of their choice :)

We can't wait to see how you will be inspired by these words - so make sure you take some TIME OUT to play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by!

TIME OUT #116 - Be Bright

We have a really fun TIME OUT challenge this fortnight - we are challenging you to be bright:

Here is my take on bright:

I really wanted to use this light bulb stamp from SSS Watts Up? stamp set - so I stamped it repeatedly across a panel of watercolour paper in Versafine ink. I then coloured them using a variety of shimery water colours  - I love the subtle shimmer whn they hit the light. I trimmed the panel and mounted it on a black card base heat embossed with a sentiment from SSS Seeing Stars. A little strip of Tim Holtz silver glitter tape to finish off the card.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Happy Little Stampers - they are offering the winner a $20 gift voucher :)

Our guest designer for this challenge is Anila from Novel Ideas - she has some great designs so make sure to check out her blog.

So take some TIME OUT to be bright with us :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

TIME OUT #115 - Food and Drink

We have a fun challenge at TIME OUT this week:

I always find one layer cards challenging (I love dimension) but I decided to give it a go this time - here is my card:

I kept it pretty simple - both the image and the greeting are from an older MFT stamp set. I coloured the image with Copics and then added lots of glitter with Stickles and Nuvo drops.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Susie from Created 4 Creativity - her cards are amazing so make to check out her blog. 

Our sponsor for this challenge is Birch Press Designs - they are offering a $20 gift voucher to a random entry that incorporates the optional twist.

We hope you can take some TIME OUT to join us for this challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
