Time Out Birthday 8th Celebrations!

 Hi All

I am very excited to be joining in Time Out's 8th Birthday!

As a co-founder of Time Out with Nonni 8 year's ago Time Out has a special place in my heart.

Due to poor health I had to leave last year but they very kindly asked me and some other Guest Designers to join in their celebrations.

There is so much going on and lots of sponsors and prizes-check all this out here and graphic below shows all the sponsors invloved!

Here is my card:

These fab images wine glasses are from Visible Images
I made this card in the style I love as I thought it was another way to celebrate the Birthday and the wonderful DT of Time Out and all the fabulous players.
I have made so many friendships over the years running Time Out and I cherish that so much.

Now pop on over to Time Out and Celebrate!

Jazz it Up!

 Happy Sunday my Friends,

I was inspired when I saw the colours at Color Hues-navy and pink-I love these 2 colours together.

I needed a Birthday card for a friend who loves Jazz and here it is:

The image and sentiment are both heat embossed in pink-haven't used this powder for ages!
Love these images from Visible Image Stamps

Enjoy your day xx

 Hi All,

Over at Time Out they have a fun CASe challenge that inspired me.

The wonderful designer Michele has created an amazing card for us to CASe-check it out here.

In her post she outlines a few of the elements she used to create the card and I took a few of these to make mine-use die cuts-no florals, a centre die, negative and positive die cuts.

It was the Joyce's take on Michele's that I thought was really original and I wanted to make something I guess you can say I CASed Joyce who CASed Michele!

And what makes this even more fun is that every die in my card is actually pressies from Joyce!!

This was quite tricky to make getting everything lined up but it all worked out in the end-so thank you Michele and Joyce for the inspiration!

CAS is me!

 Hi All

Blogland and IG seems to be filled with so many cards with outstanding colouring and I was beginning to feel a bit intimidated then a very good friend reminded me, what I tell others....just create what makes you happy....and you all know what that is-one layer, CAS and stamping only.

And here it is:

When I saw the sketch at CAS Colour and Sketches this idea popped straight into my head.
The flower stamp is from Visible Images

A bit of lining things up, choosing the right colours and sentiment and stamp!!

I had to join AAA Cards-black and white and one other colour-love adding orange!

So CAS is me!!

Have a good day xx

Uniko's 10th Birthday Celebration!-Guest Designer!

 Hi All

Uniko is having a huge holiday bash for their 10th Birthday and they are inviting all ex-DT members to come along and join in....and I was on the DT for quite a long time, so here I am.

Bev gave us the challenge of CASEing one the cards we had made using her products-fun idea!

Here is the card I made:

Here I used the stamp set Happy Succulents

And it is a CASE of this card:

In my CASE, I used stamping only and stamped at the top plus this time added a sentiment but kept the enamel dots and the glitter strip. I loved how it turned out.

You have to go and check out all the fun over at the Uniko Blog
and join in! You can see all my cards on the blog here

Happy 10th Birthday Bev and thank you for asking me to join in the fun!

Black and Red!

 Hi All

I actually felt like crafting this morning!

And made this:

I really liked Nancy's card here for the current Time Out Challenge-quote using the paper as a fence and it inspired me to do my own take on this-thank you Nancy for the inspiration!

I was inspired by the 'Fence and Flowers' part of the quote.

As I wanted to play along with the Color Hues Challenge again I went with a black and white fence. I used a Altenew stamp and die and just outlined it in red copic so it showed up more on my fence! A few enamel dots to finish.

There was a lot of messing around with how to get this looking the way I wanted it but in the end I love how it turned out.

Have a fun day.
