New Challenge at Time Out!

Hi friends!
We have a new, very interesting challenge for you at Time Out:

You could go with something retro style, use an oldie but a goodie stamp that gives you memories, be inspired by the times before us/ something vintage... The possibilities are almost endless! CAS-ual Fridays sponsors us with a generous $25 voucher for the winner. Our winner also is called to guest design in a future challenge and this time it's a regular TO player Claire, one of my favorite card makers! 

I wanted to make a slimline card and started with simply stamping a quote that seemed to fit the theme pretty well (from a Waffleflower set) and then stamped cherry blossoms by Create a Smile and colored them with Copics. I wanted to add something extra so I draw a frame with a thin black marker and ruler. Then I simply attached the panel to my base and finished the card with some clear drops. 

Please head on over to our challenge blog for all the challenge details and more DT inspiration!

New Challenge at Time Out!

Hi friends!
We have a new, fun photo challenge for you at Time Out Challenges:

Our sponsor is Funky Fossil Designs and I used their fabulous Butterfly Wreath stencil to create this quick CAS card. The sentiment, simply stamped, is by Create a Smile. I used distress inks for stenciling the design. Super simple!

Our GD this time is the amazing Sathya who I love to follow especially on Instagram... She is super inspiring! If you don't know her blog or IG yet, you are in for a treat! 

I look forward seeing how you are inspired by this fun photo. Now it's your turn to take Time Out and join us!

New Challenge at Inkspirational!

Hi friends!
We have a new fun photo challenge at Inkspirational:

I was obviously inspired by the color palette but also by the metallic material of the paint tube: it made me think of this watering can image from Penny Black, I always imagine it's tin or some other metal material! The flowers are from the same set. Sorry I don't remember the maker of the sentiment or background dies, I've lost both packages! 

Along with the new challenge I have some happy news to share, we have a new DT member at Inkspirational, Lindsey from Bashful Blogging! Do check out her blog and also the inspiration form all our DT members before you join in the challenge! Happy crafting!

I'd like to join:

New Challenge at Time Out!

HI friends!
We have a new challenge for you at Time Out and this time it's one of our Inspired by Words challenges:

STAMPlorations is our sponsor and Trina is our talented guest designer -play along and you could be called to guest design for us and win awesome prizes! 

My card is created with all STAMPlorations stamps, inspired by "blossoming" in the quote. I used two sets, Coffee Joy and In Bloom Floral Bliss (maybe discontinued since I didn't find this in the store) and created this card with some simple masking. The images are colored with Copics and I added some paint splatters and gold sequins to finish off the card.  Hope you like and thanks for popping by! Please head on over to our challenge blog for more DT inspiration.

New Challenge at Inkspirational!

Hi friends!

I'm here with my DT card for the new challenge at Inkspirational:

I decided to try something I hadn't tried before, "letter substitution" inspired by Day 10 lesson at the Spring Card Camp 2 at Online Card Classes that I have been taking. Don't know if this counts as funny... But it tries to be a bit funny at least! :) The colors of my card come form the current MFT color challenge.  I'm using their super duper cute gnome in my card. I've colored him with Copics and added some dots with white gel pen. Pretty unusual color combo for me but it's growing on me! My blue is a bit darker than in the challenge colors but I'm hoping to get away with it lol! Thanks for popping by and I hope to see you joining us at Inkspirational

Before I go I want to show you my take 1 on this card... After realizing that substituting the letter o with my image basically makes everyone read hell + gnome I thought I better re-do the card lol... But what can you say... Mistakes are made for learning! :)

Guest Designing at Create a Smile Stamps Challenge!

Hi friends!
I have the great pleasure to be guest designing at the current Create a Smile Stamps Challenge where we dare you to create a smile by creating a project using the sketch above! Create a Smile stamps do need to be the focal point of your creation. I've used a fun set called In Bloom.

Along with the sketch my card was heavily inspired by the Day 6 Lesson at Spring Card Camp 2 at Online Card Classes, "Creative Color Blocking". I decided to use pastel colored card stock (the card stock has a soft water color look, it's not completely "flat" in color) and combine that with black stamping. I quite like how this turned out! The simple heat embossed sentiment is by Altenew. I used my Misti for stamping the panels -very easy and fast! Hope you like and thanks for popping by. 

If you own some Create a Smile stamps, don't hesitate to play along in the challenge -if you don't know this inspiring company yet, check out their amazing store and the incredibly cheap flatrate worldwide shipping!!

Homework for Spring Card Camp 2

HI friends!
I'm here to share some homework for Spring Card Camp 2 at Online Card Classes. This card is for Day 11 and the lesson is by Julie Ebersole with the topic "anti coloring" -colorful cards without coloring in. I love coloring in but this technique was very fun and new to me and I love how my card turned out. It's wonderful to get new inspiration like this! I'm behind in the class but am just making cards for the lessons when I can, always choosing a lesson I'm most interested in next! :)

The flower stamp is by W+9 and the sentiment by Waffleflower. I used Versamark for the background stamping and the image on white base is heat embossed with copper embossing powder.
