Hello … bonjour! Over at Time Out today we’re starting a fresh new challenge … this fortnight we have a Home Sweet Home picture to inspire you (it’s a little further down) … here’s where I went with it …
Even though the sign here highlights Saint Valentine’s Day, I was inspired to use all the hearts strung around the cake and those arranged on the square plate for another loving occasion … a wedding anniversary. The Avery Elle sentiment was stamped direct onto the base card and I cut the Poppy Stamps heart cluster into it. The white die cuts were coloured with alcohol markers, I lined the inside of the card and adhered the coloured pieces back into their places. The inner hearts were treated to plenty of Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle and a coating of Glossy Accents. I finished off with a few Jewel Drops and a couple of strips of DP to mimic those striped hearts on the plate. To my eyes, the stripes add a touch of graphic fun … and balance all those hearts … just the right blend of girlie and manly for an anniversary!
What is it that gets your imagination going in our photo … the hearts, those cool background envelopes, the sweet treats … 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 $25 GC from our fabulous sponsor, STAMPlorations (thanks, Shery!) … and as usual, will be invited to be our Guest Designer in a future challenge. All the details are over at the Time Out blog … along with a heap of gorgeous cards from our fabulous DT and from our super talented Guest Designer, the lovely Coni from Which Craft? Do go and have a meander through all the delicious cards over at Coni’s … there’s a veritable cornucopia of delights to enjoy!
