A New Challenge At Time Out – #106 – Home Sweet Home Inspiration

Hello … bonjour … it’s Time Out time!  We had a glorious gallery full of delicious cards to celebrate our 4th birthday this last fortnight, thank you!  This time round, we have a gorgeous, spring like Home Sweet Home photograph to inspire you to join us … it’s a little further down … here’s my take on it …

Time Out… and here’s the wonderful, fresh inspiration …

Isn’t it delicious!  As you can tell (I hope!) my focus was on the blooming broom branches and that lovely soft blue cake stand.  I stamped the three step daisies and sentiments (from Papertrey) onto a white card panel and die cut the image out of it.  Both pieces of the panel were adhered to my card front, with the stamped portion popped up on fun foam.  I finished off with some Stickles in the centre of the flowers.  Simply stamped … crisp and CAS!

What sparks your imagination in our Home Sweet Home photo … those spring time colours … the delicate blooms … that zesty fruit … the cool stripes … the ‘die cut’ vase … or something else?  Whichever way you’re inspired, we’d love to see what you create in our gallery!  Our winner, as chosen by the DT, will receive a $20 gc from our fabulous sponsor, Altenew, and will have the chance to guest design with us in a future challenge.  All the details are over at the Time Out blog … along with a heap of brilliant ideas from our fabulous DT and from our super talented Guest Designer and ex Teamie, Sarah from Funky Fossil Designs.  I’m sure you know Sarah already … though if you’ve not been over to see her recently, do go for a meander though all her amazing creativity and say hello … you’ll have a wonderful time!

I’m playing along at …

    Look at those happy yellow flowers. I really like the brightness of the blooms and the bit of sparkle of the gold in the centers. Clever use of the blue from the cake stand. The sentiment is wonderful, too. Beautiful card, Anita! Hugs!

    This fabulous card is just so YOU, Anita … beautiful! from the colors, to that wonderful panel of linen paper as your canvas!
    LOve Forsythia… why isn’t there a stamp for those? But it might be the lemons that have caught my eye – I have just the stamp for that!
    Happy Easter, bunny hunches …

    Oh my Anita, I am loving your beautiful take on this fabulous photo! Those flowers are just stunning and I love that you focused on the yellow of the flowers and the blue of the cake plate as that is just what my eye went towards too. lol A great sentiment as well! Hugs, Brenda

    What a wonderful inspiration photo. The forsythia is in full bloom in my back yard, and with Easter weekend upon us your photo captured my attention and encourages me to mix blue and white with the tablescape I’ll be setting. Your card is equally wonderful. I love the daisies and their bright hue as well as the lovely blue SMILE. A delightful card and very inspiring.

    This challenge is so up my alley…lemons, stripes, blue & yellow combo…the ideas are perking like mad. What’s not to love. Especially the way it inspired you with those YELLOW blooms and the soft blue…cannot even put into words how wonderful your card looks. You even added to gold sparkly centers of your flowers…perhaps to reflect the glint of those glass bottles. I’d say you’ve made it tough for the participants but I’m going to give it the old college try.

    Fabulous ANita, I hadn’t even noticed the blue cakestand until mentioned it. Wonderful take on the photo, and I love all that bright lovely yellow (its my favorite color).

    Anita, your card is an absolute beautiful take on the inspiration photo! Love the Smile in blue! I hope you have a blessed Easter my friend. Can you believe it has been half a year since I had to tell you why my son had to cancel his trip to France !!!! God is so good!

    Absolutely gorgeous take on the inspiration photo, Anita! Your yellow blooms are so pretty…they make me wish spring would show up already 🙂 Love your sentiment, too! Thanks so much for always inspiring us to play along! Hugs, Barb

    How fun to admire your beautiful yellow flower card. I am looking out the craft room window at some wild daffodils, actually a long stem, but I love looking at it.
    Have a delightful spring season Anita.
    Hugs, Barb

  10. Cornelia (fun stamping)

    Gorgeous card – you really captured the inspiration photo. But it ain’t a Forsythia – in English this is called a Broom (Ginster in German) – hope you don’t mind. Happy Easter – hope you had an enjoyable day!

      Gosh no, I don’t mind a bit, Cornelia, thanks so much for letting me know! Funnily enough, I had broom in the draft post and then edited it to forsythia … now I’ve edited it back! Hugs, Anita 🙂

    Beautiful card — wonderfully sweet and great take on the inspiration and colors! And then there’s that awesome forsythia….

  12. Lisa Kind

    This is so lovely Anita! Beautiful interpretation of that photo! Love how you used the colors too!

    I’m sorry I’m so late, Anita, my darling friend. I fell asleep on the train and it’s all my fault. Kevin said I should have taken the earlier one because he knows I have a hard time staying awake after lunch and sure enough, a few carbs and a wee piece of chockie and I was snoring away, so I missed my transfer and ended up clear on the other side. Well, of course, by then, being the holiday, there were no more trains, so I had to get a room in a bed-sit. I’d have preferred a charming boutique hotel, but they were all booked. I was so nervous because the door didn’t latch very well, so then (and because of the long nap) I laid awake until near four and then didn’t wake up until noon! Oy! Taking the train back finally, here I am!! No, don’t look! I’m so disheveled that three people left money for me on the little train table! So embarrassing! Fortunately, your pretty card made as a take on that delicious photo shines bright enough that I don’t think anyone will notice my hair. As always, you did an utterly gorgeous card!! I hope you enjoyed your Easter and you had lovely weather! LYAMYMA! MTWFAC?! Love and hugs, Darnell

    Superbe interprétation de cette magnifique photo. Tes jolies petites fleurs jaunes me rappelle les boutons d’or (buttercup) avec lesquelles on jouait quand j’étais petite ! Et je reconnais là ta patte artistique et créative avec ce superbe sentiment en bleu qui rappelle le plat à gâteau de la photo ! Comme toujours tout en finesse et simplicité. J’adore. J’espère que tu as passé un bon long weekend de Pâques (moi j’ai dû manger trop de chocolat !) et je te souhaite un merveilleuse semaine. Bises

  15. Jill Vickers

    This is simply gorgeous Anita! I love the combination of the blue sentiment with the yellow flowers – they go together beautifully (I don’t know how I totally missed the blue in the inspiration photo!) The addition of Stickles is a great touch – I am sure they glitter beautifully in real life 🙂

  16. susannev2014

    Your yellow flowers are so pretty with the sparkly centers! The blue sentiment mimicking the cake stand is very clever!

  17. Nonni

    Love these delicate flowers, Anita! I think I’ve never seen this stamp before, it’s very beautiful! They go perfectly together with the large sentiment, I really like the layout of this card. xxx

    The fresh look of the sweet daisies in yellow is gorgeous! The pretty sky blue ‘smile’ goes perfectly. What an amazing creation!!
