Time Out Challenges Reminder!

HI friends!
I'm here to remind you of our current challenge at TIME OUT where we have a wonderful photo inspiration for you:

Click HERE for all the challenge details and more inspiration from our design team and our guest designer Greta. I've been familiar with her blog for years and admire her card making -do check her work out if you don't know her already!

For my card I colored the wonderful Mondo Sakura flower stamp by Ellen Hutson with Copics and gel pens. I was also inspired by the turqouise wall you see in the photo and used a Tim Holtz embossing folder I thought looked similar. I used some blue ink and sanding to make the embossing more distressed looking. I used a white heat embossed greeting on black for the sentiment and some clear sequins for embellishments. Hope you like and see you at Time Out! 

I'd like to join:

New Challenge at Less Is More!

Hi friends!

We have a new challenge for you at Less Is More:

Both dry and heat embossing will work if you just remember to have less than one third of your card embossed!

Our May sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and our DT has had a lot of fun playing with their products. In this card I used their Pretty Poisies stamp and die set.   I've heat embossed my images with white powder, die cut them, and sponged them with various Distress and Memento inks. I kept the rest of the card simple using a die cut shape for "mounting" the flower cluster and stamping my sentiment. I decided to go with baby pink card for my base for extra girlyness! :)

Play along for a chance to join us as guest designer and for a chance to win a voucher to CAS-ual Fridays store! Do not that we also have a discount code for our players! Our design team has lots of more inspiration for you in our challenge blog. I hope to see you joining us! Happy crafting!

A couple of quick words about my card. :) I'm using stamps and dies by Hero Arts, simply colored with Copics, gel pens and wink of stella. I felt like adding some patterned paper to my card just for fun (have been making so super simple cards lately that felt like adding more "touches") and that's how this turned out. The rectangle dies are by MFT. Hope you like and thanks for popping by... Enjoy the hop!

New Challenge at Less Is More!

HI friends!
I'm here with my DT card for the new challenge at Less Is More:

The month of May is sponsored by CAS-ual Friday Stamps and you'll be seeing our DT use their fab products throughout the month!  Along with a $25 prize code for our monthly winner, there's also a discount code to their store for all LIM players. Have a look at the info in this badge:

Now onto my super simple card!
I'm using martini glass stamps and dies by Paper Smooches and rectangle die by STAMPlorations. I've masked and sponged an ombre yellow circle to the card base and simply placed the stamped, colored and die cut images on top and stamped the sentiment directly to the base. I finished off the card with black enamel drops. 

Please head on over to our challenge blog for more DT inspiration! This time our guest designer is Helen who has made an absolutely adorable card for this time. Don't miss it! Happy crafting!

Time Out Challenges Reminder!

Hi friends!

I'm here to remind you of our current challenge at TIME OUT where we challenge you to be Playful! 

This challenge is sponsored by the fabulous Winnie and Walter. I'm using two of their amazing dies in my card:

My inspiration was simply to have a play with the die and different colored scraps of card stock -I randomly filled in the die like playing with a puzzle. :) The hugs die cut didn't really pop from the busy base so I adhered a strip of black card behind it. The color palette turned out pretty masculine but actually I think this kind of geometric design could be good for a guy anyway! :) 

Hope you like and thanks for popping by. Lots of more inspiration and all the challenge details  in our challenge blog!
