Time Out Challenges Reminder!

Hi friends!

I'm here to remind you of our 5th birthday challenge at TIME OUT! I can't believe we already turned 5... My life has turned upside down (and even several times!) during these 5 years... It's good to have some stability in your life though... So I'm very grateful to Sandie for keeping this challenge blog going! 

To celebrate TIME OUT and our fabulous leader Sandie I wanted to make a card with her on my mind. This card has a lot to do with her: I've received the Concord and 9th flower stamps from her as a gift and also the Winnie and Walter sentiment die cuts are from her... I know she likes my coloring and also I tried to keep my design CAS for her taste... So I hope she likes this!  Love you hon! 

All the flowers are simply stamped and colored in with Copics on kraft. I've added some gel pen details + splattered white and gold paint on top. 

The challenge is Inspired by Words:

The winner will receive an amazing $50 gift voucher to STAMPlorations store! Please have a look at all the details and more DT inspiration from our challenge blog HERE. This time Kara joins us as guest designer! LOVE LOVE LOVE the floral card she made for our reminder post, don't miss it! 

I'd like to join:

The Flower Challenge: Anything Goes (my 3rd entry)

Thanks for popping by and happy crafting!


  1. It is a beauty! I'm sure Sandie will love it when she sees it! Hugs, Gerrina

  2. Oh I love, love, love it Nonni and thank you for making this with me in mind-you got it perfect.....and another thing to add to the lists of why I would like this-I love your colouring on kraft especially as it looks fab and seems like it is so hard plus I adore how you use the white gel pen and the splatters always look perfect-I just can't do it. This feels a very special post and card and I thank you for always inspiring our players and me! And all the support you give me-love you x

  3. Gorgeous stamping and coloring on kraft CAS design, Nonni. You always inspire me with your beautiful creative projects. Such a wonderful card honoring Sandie for her 5 years of keeping this wonderful challenge organized and always so inspiring. Hugs..Nancy

  4. Love how you made your celebratory card just for Sandie, Nonni ... as ever, your colouring and shading is fantastic, especially on the darker card stock ... the crisp white die cut 'hugs' really pops against it! Hugs, Anita :)

  5. What a special card created with Sandie in mind! Your thoughtfulness and gratitude shine through this card! I love the beautiful shading on each of your flowers and your white speckle detail on the kraft cardstock. Thanks for your lovely comments on my card, and I'm thrilled to be celebrating with you for TO's 5th birthday!

  6. SO love this card design, Nonni! Love the color of the base and the colors you used for the flowers! Of course, I really love that your bestie gave you some of these goodies and you, in turn, are using them to make her a card! Hope your life has smoothed out a bit!! Hugs, Darnell

  8. Beautiful card, and oh so special because I know where it is going and how much thought and love in each design decision.

  9. I love this card Nonni, so pretty!

  10. You are truly the master of using kraft card stock beautifully - and this design is no exception. Every detail is perfect - from the soft colouring to the white splatters and the bold sentiment - I love it and I am sure Sandie did too! Hugs, Jill
