TIME OUT #130 - Be Unique

We have another fun challenge at TIME OUT this week - we are challenging you to be unique:

Our sponsor for this challenge is Catherine Pooler - the challenge winner will receive a goodie bag from her shop :)

The idea that I came up with for may card started with the Zen Feather set from Catherine Pooler - I thought that the sentiment was just perfect. I did some stamp surgery to cut it apart and line it up to frame the design. I then drew the rectangle and did some stamping and masking to create the flower scene. I coloured them all yellow - except the one "unique" orange flower which was also coated in Stickles for some sparkle.

Our guest designer for this challenge is Elizabeth from Paper Sweetness - she is a regular Time Out player and we are so happy that she is joining us this week - make sure to check out her pretty designs.

Thanks for stopping by!

TIME OUT #129 - Retro

Happy Valentine's Day!

We have a fun challenge for you at Time Out - retro themed projects!!!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Funky Fossil Designs - the winner will receive their choice of three stencils from the store :)

Here is my "retro" card: 

I have to admit that I struggled a little bit to come up with an idea - and then I remembered my "For the Record" stamp set from Neat & Tangled, and I decided to make a record card.

I started out by using a circle die to inlay a blue circle in a black card panel (and also inlay a small silver circle in the centre of the blue circle. I then used a Simon Says circular sentiment to add the "Happy Birthday" to the blue circle. I white heat embossed the N&T sentiment across the panel - this was the most challenging part of the whole card since it involved some stamp surgery and careful lining up of the stamps. As a final step, I used the Memory Box radio wave (sadly, discontinued) to sponge on some clear embossing paste concentric circles onto the black part of the card to complete the "record" look.

I added another N&T sentiment to the inside of the card:
