TIME OUT Challenges Reminder

Hi friends!
Our current challenge at TIME OUT is still running for about one week so plenty of time to play along! We are CASEing a wonderful card by Jenny (small photo above) and the DT is having some extra fun playing with Verve stamps! Play along and you could win a stamp set by Verve! 

For my card I used Verve stamp set called New Beginnings. This set has not only cute flowers but several fabulous spring-themed sentiments -I've used them in many cards already and you'll be seeing me using them in many Easter cards in April... I can honestly say I LOVE this stamp set! Such pretty sentiments!

This is how I was inspired by Jenny's card:

-Houses changed into flowers but I'm mimicking the layout!
-Springtime feel
-Sponging of blue ink
-Using stitched border die and colored card base

I think it's fun I CASEd so many elements and still our cards look very different! 

The flowers are colored in with Copics, winked, and I added some white gel pen too. This card is super simple! The red base card is dry embossed but the photo doesn't really show that -I was having such lighting issues yesterday when photographing cards... I'm so waiting for warmer daylight! 

Thanks for popping by! Please head on over to our challenge blog to have a look what my DT friends have made. Our guest designer this time is a regular Time Out player and a fantastic, artistic CAS card maker: Izzy


  1. This is CAS perfection! Just simple flowers, placed perfectly. I really like the coloured base, it adds drama to your card x

  2. I absolutely love the red card base - it adds the perfect pop of colour to accent your pretty flowers! I love your CAS take of the CASE card! I feel your pain on chasing sunshine - it is officially Spring here now and I can't wait for the days to get longer again :)

  3. Super CAS and so beautiful in all it;s simplicity! Hugs, Gerrina

  8. I LOVE this card Nonni. Love those wonderful red blooms and that little detail of the white pen on the petals looks great. Love the placement of the two bloom and sentiment all on the top part of the white panel. The red base looks fantastic! Wonderful CASE of Jenny's card.

  9. Even thought they are smalll images you clearly showed time and attention in colouring them - love the white highlights - what a simple and pretty card. Jenny x
