Time Out #92

Hi There,

Time for a new challenge at TIME OUT and today we are here to celebrate 'World Dot Day'. This is a day that celebrates creativity and we thought our 'Inspired by Words' challenge was a great way for us all to celebrate creativity. Our words are:

Paint The Flying Spirit Of The Birds Rather than its Feathers

Use any of these words to inspire you or the whole phrase.

And my card:

I am sure you can see I was inspired by the words 'feathers, flying and bird'.

I used the penny and black Hummingbird stamp and coloured it with promarkers. Used a stitched die and nuvo drops for some interest. The sentiment is from our fabulous sponsors for this challenge Happy Little Stampers. The winner of this challenge will get a $15 gift voucher.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the super talented Carol we are so pleased she is joining us. Her blog is full of inspiration for us all-check it out here

Happy Little Stamper CAS September Challenge

Hi All

Today a new monthly challenge starts at Happy Little Stampers. This month we are asking for 'Clean and Simple' cards that feature a silhouette.

Here is my take on this challenge:

The silhouette is from the Wish You Were Here stamp set from Happy Little Stamper.
I have heat embossed it on a tag I cut from some sponged card.

The winner of this challenge will get a $20 gift voucher for the Happy Little Stamper Store.

Time to get inky!

Going Square Again!

A very Happy Weekend my friends!

I seem to be on a creative roll the last few days and have made quite a lot of my future DT cards and a few for challenges. Best to make usel of the mojo while it is there as we know how easy it can go for a little rest!

Today I have another card for the 'square' challenge at CASology. This time I was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch. I really like how I used the leaf die here to mimic the image in the sketch.

I used the square embossed card again and this time paired it with this leaf die in the same colour card. The sentiment is heat embossed in vanilla cream.

Have a fun weekend.

Square Contrast!

Hello Crafty buddies,

My card today was inspired by the 'square' challenge at CASology.

To be honest I wasn't going to enter this challenge as I had no ideas at first! Then when I was hunting through my stash I came across this crream card embossed with squares. I have no idea where it came from but thought it would make a perfect base for this challenge.

This is what I created using the card and quite a few contrasts, which I will explain below...if you have time to read! 

I made the card square using the square embossed card. Then I wanted to add contrast to this card so used a pretty butterfly as contrast to the geometric base....which to me looks quite masculine. I have always liked using cream and white together and for some more contrast I used black with these. And for even more contrast I used the circle against the square. I have no idea why this base wanted me to go down the contrast route but it kept telling me too! And I like the end result.

Have fun today x

Time Out #91

Hi There

Time for a new challenge at Time Out Challenges. It is our CASE challenge. This time we are honoured to be CASEing the very talented Bev-the owner and designer of Uniko. I know most of you know Bev and her amazing stamps and dies but if not check them out here.

Uniko are sponsoring this challenge with the winner getting a gift voucher to spend in their store-thanks Bev for your support.

Here is my CASE of Bev's card:

And Bev's card:

I went CAS and one layer here. Instead of a multi coloured base used teal coloured card, embossing the gerbera flower stamp from Uniko. A few little extra gold touches and done!

This card was sent to Nonni who celebrated being 21 again last week!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very creative Lucie G. Her card are stunning and I urge you to pop over and have a browse now-you will be inspired.

Now it is your turn to take some TIME OUT and create but before you do, check out how Bev's card has inspired Lucie and the DT at Time Out

Inkspirational #142

Hi All,

We have a fun challenge for you over at Inkspirational-it is our Designer's choice challenge and my very dear friend Nonni has chosen the theme of:

Oldie but Goodie

This means use any of your old stamps. Perhaps one from when you first started stamping.

I found one of my very first stamp sets and made this:

The shoe stamps came along with a handbag and earrings. I can't remember where they are from.

As it was Nonni's challenge and her favourite colour is blue, I went with navy card and embossed the shoes and sentiment in gold.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Shirley. Her blog is full of inspiring projects. Take a look here and feast your eyes!

Our DT have all been dusting off their old stamps and creating. Take a look here and then have a hunt for those old stamps that need some love and join in with us.
