Time Out Challenges #95

Hi There,

Time to take some crafty TIME OUT and join in our latest challenge at Time Out Challenges

Our theme this is:

Sympathy cards with the optional twist of distressing-(using distress inks, distress edges or torn edges)

Hard cards to make, we know, but always good to have a few in your stash.

Here is my card using the option of a distressed edged made using the distress tool.


My sentiment stamp is from our fabulous sponsor for this challenge Happy Little Stampers.

I used the negative section of this leave die and popped it up of some foam pads over a scrap of water coloured card that I had already attached to some lilac coloured card base. I used a distressing tool on the edge of the cream coloured card.

Our Guest Designer this week is the very creative Sue. I have for a long time admired Sue's CAS style and every visit to her blog brings yet more inspiration-take a look here

Our DT have made some amazing cards for you all-pop on over to Time Out and have a look.

Then kick back, take some TIME OUT and craft a little with us x

I will enter this into:

CASology-Cherish-we all cherish those who are dear to us and losing them reminds us to cherish them forever and reminds us to cherish those who are with us now.

  9. A design that is appropriate for a sympathy card. As you say, these cards can be hard to make so why not make more of the same, and by just changing colors you can achieve very different looks.
