Time Out Challenge #113

Hi There,

Time for a new challenge and we have our 'Inspired by Words' challenge and the words are:

What a beautiful quote! 
You can use any of these words, just one or the whole phrase-hard to choose we know!!

I went with 'Smile' and created this:

I have used a wonderful star stencil from our sponsor today Sarah who has her own store full of goodies that you can find here. The winner of this challenge will get 3 stencils of their choice from this fabulous store. You can check out Sarah's Instagram account here to see her cards using her stencils-they are fab!!

I simple sponged through the stencil using this as my background and then heat embossed the 'Smile' from the CAS-ual Fridays 'Sassy Smiles' stamp set. Using the part of the same stamp set I white heat emboss the rest of the sentiment on black card and popped it up. Added a few star enamel dots and done!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very creative Amanda. Her blog Diamond Laine Designs is a delight to visit and full of stunning cards-pop on over there now and you will love what you see!

Amanda and the DT have created some stunning cards for you-check them out here and then get inky!


I will enter this into:


  1. Love the starry background vor your smile and bold panal! Hugs, Gerrina

  2. You did great job with that stencil! I love all the subtle colors and the large sentiment -very stylish! I think I've never seen star-shaped enamel dots before -very cool! xxx

  3. I love the soft color you you used to stencil the stars, and the bright enamel stars in contrast. It was a really good idea to heat emboss the SMILE. Love the rest of the sentiment in white on black and on a slant. x

  4. Simply beautiful! I love the stars in your background!

  5. Love those wonderful stars, and your bold sentiment.

  6. Super cute!!! Thank you for joining us at ATSM, good luck!!! Amy DT
