TIME OUT #143 - Inspired By Words

For our challenge this fortnight at TIME OUT, we are asking you to create a project inspired by these words:

Our sponsor for this challenge is one of my favourite stamp companies, Winnie & Walter - they are generously offering the winner of the challenge a $25

For my card, I decided to use one of my favourite Winnie & Walter dies, the Cover Model: Multifaceted Cutaway.  I die cut a piece of Tim Holtz watercolour paper and then watercoloured the small sections in rainbow order before putting it back together as an inlaid die cut. I white heat embossed an older Whimsy Stamps umbrella onto some black cardstock and fussy cut it out; I attached it with foam tape to the inlaid background. I made a matching purple envelope and stamped some umbrella across the back; I outlined the umbrellas using a sparkly pen.

Our guest designer for this challenge is Arlene from Sundaystamper Papercrafts.

TIME OUT #142 - Fashionable

This week at TIME OUT, we are challenging you to be fashionable.

Our generous sponsor for this challenge is Stamplorations who have generously offered the winner a $25 gift voucher to their store :)

For my project this week, I used Stamplorations A Girl and Her Shoes stamp set - I really love this set - especially the sentiment that I used on the card which is a Marilyn Monroe quote.

I wanted to create a "store window" look on the card so I embossed the small shoe in the set in six different sparkly embossing powders onto vellum. I used a Mama elephant die to create the window frame - I die cut it 6 times to get some dimension.
I wasn't going to make this into a shaker card but I ended up adding some confetti into the window.

Here is a close up where you can see some of the sparkle and the confetti:

TIME OUT #141 - Relaxation

Our challenge this fortnight at TIME OUT is perfect for those lazy summer days - we are looking for your relaxation themed projects.

We are very lucky to have Newton's Nook as our sponsor for this challenge - they are offering a $25 store credit to a randomly chosen entry that opts to make a one layer project :)

I decided to make a one layer card using Newton's Naptime for my project this week - how adorable is this image?! I Copic coloured the image and them masked it before adding a sponged and stenciled background. The sentiment is from a Technique Tuesday set - I though it worked brilliantly with both the image and the challenge theme :) I did add a slim strip of silver glitter washi tape to the card - (I think it is still one layer?) - to finish it off and add a little sparkle.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Marieke whose wonderful designs are so often in our gallery inspiring us - so make sure you check out her work.
