Time Out #156

Hi All

Time for a new 'photo' challenge at Time Out.

First my card:

Inspired by this photo:

I went for the purple frame with the pink pattern inside and the bright colours.
What will you go for? I can't wait to see as there is so, so much to inspire!

The sentiment is from our fabulous sponsors Altenew. This sentiment is from the stamp set Halftone Circles

The pattern inside is from a stencil at Funky Fossil Designs
The dies from STAMPlorations.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge to the super talented Maria. I am a long time fan of Maria and been on a few DTs with her and have always loved her style. Take a look at her blog here and I bet you come back a fan too! Welcome Maria, so pleased to have you join us x

I will enter:

Day of the Month Card Club-send a card to a friend-this is off to a very dear friend x

Lots of Shoes!

Hi All

Back with my second card for Color Throwdown and Less is More-more but still CAS-my more is shoes!!

Don't we all love our shoes.
I even chose shoes that are like some I have and yes....I do have them the green and grey but no purple ones!.
All the shoes stamps and the sentiment are from The Ton given to me by my dear cousin Lynn-thanks Lynn x

Have a fun Sunday x

Just for Fun!

Hi All

I haven't made a card 'just for fun' for a while but did have 2 card ideas in my head all week and finally got down this morning and made them.

The snowflakes are Stunning Snowflakes from Uniko and the sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays

I just loved the colours at Color Throwdown and knew I wanted to make a Christmas card-I like to try out a few one layer Christmas card designs through the year so when it comes nearer to Christmas I have some designs that I can make around 10 of...cheaper international postage! After seeing a few more challenges that inspired me, the card came together.

While I had these inks out I made another card that I hope to get around to sharing with you later.

I will enter this into:

Less is More-more but still CAS-use lots of little images but still keep CAS
CAS(E) This Sketch-this is what inspired my lay out
AAA Cards-one corner and option of older stash-I have had both these stamp sets for years
Color Throwdown-this is where it all started!

Hope to show you card 2 this weekend too!

Have a good weekend x

Here is the way I went:

And here is our cue word:

I went with 'High Heels'....they make us all a little taller and who doesn't love a pair of high heels. I have so many in my wardrobe-not often worn but when I do, I just love them!

This stamp set is from The Ton Stamps given to me by my lovely cousin Lynn, who knows I have a weakness for shoes and when we get to meet, shoe shopping we go!

Our sponsors for this challenge are STAMPlorations

Love is in the Air!

Hi All

This card idea has been in my head since I saw the 'less' challenge at Less is More Challenge last week.
It took a few more challenges to help me finish this 'tiny' idea....although my CAS cards look so quick to make, they can take days and sometimes weeks of muling somewhere in my head, before the exact idea comes together!

Here it is:

Yep, I sure went CAS!
A tiny sentiment from STAMPlorations and a little red heart coloured in copics-I actually wasn't going to add this until I saw the photo at The Card Concept-loved the red and black and all those pretty string of hearts. I added the strip of red to balance out the heart-just like in Paper Players

I think that is my last heart card for a while....I am loved out!!

Have a fun day.


The Card Concept-CAS design!
