Time Out #63

Time for a new challenge at Time Out Challenges and this time we have:

Holidays with the optional twist of no stamping (stamped sentiments allowed)

Here is my card using the twist:

I basically used an embossed Christmas panel and stamped a sentiment from Uniko to finish off my card.

You can use any holidays for this challenge. I went for Christmas as I am so behind on making my Xmas cards.

Our Sponsors for this challenge are Uniko. If you twist by using no stamps-stamped sentiments allowed, you could be in for a chance of winning a £15 Uniko gift voucher.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Aileen. Her blog is a delight to visit. Take a look at it here and you will come back inspired!

Aileen and our amazing DT have come up with some inspiring projects. Check them out here.

You deserve some TIME OUT, so take it and join in the fun


  1. Such a dramatic color palette and great CAS layout, very stylish!

  2. A gorgeous CAS design. Love the textured panel and the trio of enamel elements!

  3. I think it's festive, in a modern kind of way, with a hint of masculine feel. I think I've got the embossing folder you've used, I've actually got several in this strip size. This is a great layout for those.

  4. I do love your CAS cards,this one is absolutly elegant.
    Greetings Elisabeth

  5. Love your festive card...that embossed panel is fabulous.

  6. I love this card Sandie - you created such a sleek and modern design using traditional holiday element - brilliant! I also love how you showcased the embossed panel - something I have never thought of and will have to try. Thanks for the inspiration :)

  7. Red is just right for Christmas. I love the busyness of the embossed panel encased in black. It doesn't overwhelm the rest of your lovely card. This is just wonderful!! Bev

  8. Fabulous, bright and so Christmassy, Sandie ... the bold red, white and black puts me in mind of Santa ... it's brilliant! Been having a lovely time catching up with all your cards over the last few weeks ... as ever, it's been a delight ... and so inspiring! Sorry it's not been possible to comment on each (you'd be here till Christmas!) ... now I'm caught up I shall be doing! Hugs to you, my friend, Anita :)

  9. OK! loving this sweet and simple card! you are the Queen of CAS my friend!

    Have a great weekend!!
