New Challenge at Time Out!

Hi friends!
I'm here with my DT card for Time Out Challenges where for the next fortnight we are inspired by "Down to Earth". There's alaso an optional twist to use kraft card and all the entrants that have chosen the optional twist have the chance to win a gift voucher to our sponsor Alex Syberia! Alex Syberia makes amazing digital stamps and cut files. 

I used an Alex Syberia image Autumn Leaves Frame, colored it with Altenew markers, cut a window to it and and made my card into a shaker. The sentiment comes from Altenew. My inspiration comes from fall time: during autumn the ground in Finland is covered with leaves that have fallen down from the trees -lots of raking for us house owners lol! The fallen leaves would have beautiful earthy tones in real life but in my card I decided to play with lots of color. It's soon the darkest time of the year and I wanted make something that would be very cheerful and uplifting!

Thank you for popping by and now it's your turn to take time out and craft. xx

New Challenge at Time Out!

Hi friends!

I'm here with my DT card for Time Out Challenges where the next fortnight we are focusing on Breast Cancer Awareness. Our challenge is for you to make a friendship and/or encouragement card. The optional twist is to use Pink in your card. 

We take breast cancer awareness very seriously. Early detection of Breast Cancer is the key and it is advised to do a self exam-check every month. You can check out this link for more info on self exams or just more information about Breast Cancer in general -

Please do pass this information to friends and go do that self exam!

This challenge is sponsored by the incredible and very generous CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! If you use our twist of pink you could win a $25 voucher to their amazing store. Our design team will also vote for another winner who gets to join us as guest designer in a future challenge.  Our GD this time is the very talented Natasa. Don't miss her card or any of the DT inspiration, click HERE

In my card I've used a background stamp by CAS-ual Fridays and all other products by Waffle Flower Crafts. The sentiment and background are heat embossed with white powder, the leaves are simply stamped and copic colored. 

Now it's your turn to take time out and craft! I look forward seeing what you'll create! Thank you for stopping by. xxx

New challenge at AAA Birthday Card Challenges!

Hi friends!
I'm here with my DT card for the new challenge at AAA Birthday Card Challenges where in the month of October we want to see you make slimline birthday cards! Alex Syberia is our sponsor in this challenge and many DT members are playing with her amazing digis and cut files. All the challenge and prize details along with lots of DT inspiration HERE!

I used an Alex Syberia image called Autumn Bouquet as my focal point and colored it in with Copics and Altenew markers. I added lots of shine from Stickles and Wink of Stella! Some of my coloring did not really please my eye so I decided to add some die cut maple leaves (die by Poppystamps if I remember right!) to hide my errors lol! The background is inked after some simple masking and I've also splattered paint and added some gems. Hope you like and thanks for popping by! I look forward seeing you playing along! 

I'd like to play along:
