Time Out DT #23 Mid-Challenge Reminder, Winnie & Walter Birthday Bash & JITW, Uniko #17, SSS Wednesday #28 Jan

We’re already half way through our latest challenge at Time Out … and I’m popping in with another card inspired by our theme … Valentine’s Day with the optional twist of hearts.

Time Out DT 23 Mid, W&W BirthdayTime OutThis week I went bold … a Winnie & Walter heart embossed in silver and trimmed out, ombré watercoloured with Distress Inks and double coated with Wink of Stella, adorned with a little silver SSS die cut heart and blinged with a single gem … all popped up on foam dots on the card base.  The W&W ‘love’ and Clearly Besotted ‘& Hugs’  sentiments were embossed in silver and I scattered a few sequins and gems around them … voilà!  Here’s a shimmery close up …

Time Out DT 23 Mid, W&W Birthday Close UpIf you called by last week, you’ll know that we’re sponsored this fortnight by STAMPlorations, … there’ll be a random draw for a $15 voucher and in addition, if you leave a comment on Shery’s Time Out post at STAMPlorations, you could win a stencil pack in another random draw!  As well as all that, the overall winner, as voted by the DT, will be invited to be a Guest Designer for a future challenge … what’s not to play for?

All the details are over at the Time Out blog, along with plenty of inspiration from the DT and our lovely GD, Valentyna.  Look forward to seeing you in the gallery!

    Such a stunning card Anita! I have admired every single detail on this beauty. The perfect embossing in that gorgeous heart, the mix of fonts in your sentiment, the sequins and silver beads placement and the teeny heart all add up to perfect. Inspirational, sweet and perfect!

    Oooh – that heart is so pretty Anita – I think this might be eligible for CASual Fridays too (but don’t quote me on that!) Love that silver embossing – I reckon this would look fab against black!
