Time Out DT#32, Neat & Tangled #56, Uniko Studio #21, Simply Create Too #86, Just Us Girls #294, SSS Wednesday 27/5

We have a wonderful theme for you this fortnight at Time Out … it’s our ‘Designer to CASE’ challenge … and we have a card from the super talented Deepti from Dee’s Art Utopia to inspire us … it’s pretty, whimsical and dramatic all at the same time (see a little further down) … here’s my take on it …

Time Out DT 32Time Outand here’s Deepti‘s inspiration …

The design elements I picked out were the flowers (randomly stamped Neat and Tangled whimsical Scandinavian Flowers) and the white embossing on a black angled panel … my twist was going with all that white space!  I added a little colour to the embossed blossoms using Promarkers, adhered the panel flat to the card base, stamped the sentiment (from the same N&T set as the flowers) onto a strip of matching card and added it above the black panel.

What’s going through your creative mind when you see Deepti’s card … flowers, DP, angled panels, bold black, embossing … wherever it settles, I hope you’ll find time to play along with us!  Deepti has recently illustrated her first stamps (Blooming Buds), which have been released through Stamplorations … and is going to be giving away a set to the winner of this challenge (as chosen by the DT)!  In addition, and as usual, the winner will get the chance to be a Guest Designer for a future challenge … so what’s not to love?  There’s heaps of inspiration over at the Time Out blog … from our fabulous DT and from our talented Guest Designer, Maura whose Splitcoast Gallery is chock full of fabulous cards … definitely worth meandering gently through!  Look forward to seeing you in the gallery!

I’m playing along with …

Uniko Studio – Flowers

    Beautiful card Anita. Love how you’ve added colour to your embossed images on the black. Really striking! xx

    Oh. My. Goodness!!! My old eyes could not read fast enough to find out HOW you added the color to the embossed images? This is pure genius dear friend! I never would have thought to do that and likely would have spent nine million hours masking/embossing in different colors! LOVE the angle and LOVE the cool placement of the sentiment (you always do such cool things like this!).

    I love this card. Really. Love. This. Card. It’s a real tribute to Deepti’s card, and has your signature all over it too. Love that N&T set. I’m trying to get a bit caught up with commenting after a week’s worth of company, so bear with me… Thanks, too for the sweet happy mail. You’re just the best. And I miss you. Everyday. Have a lovely weekend dear friend.

    I love the way you used the N&T flowers and sentiment. I never would have thought to design them in that way. Awesome layout and colors.
