A New Challenge At Time Out – #132 – Home Sweet Home Inspiration

Hello … bonjour!  We have a Home Sweet Home photo to inspire you at our new challenge starting right now at Time Out … it’s a little further down.  Here’s my take on it …

… and here’s the stylish interior to get your creative imagination going …

Estimated Shipping is 2-3 weeks. Add drama to any room with these beautiful statement pieces. Vintage butterfly prints and high quality gold frame. Made in theAt first, my eye went straight to those amazing butterfly pictures on the wall … but then I spotted the tiny vase of pink blooms sitting on the stack of white books on the table … perfect CAS elements!  My blooms are from WPlus9‘s Watercoloured Anemones … stamp-layered onto a crisp white linen base card … with the centres highlighted with black Stickles.  The sentiment is from Pretty Pink Posh.  The colour IRL is closer to the flowers in the photo … rather more pink than coral … though that’s my photography for you!

    Thank you so much for the shout out for my Purple Day-that is so kind of you and means a lot (will reply to your email soon!). And you did it again-spotted something I didn’t even see in the photo-the white books!! Gosh I get so inspired by this! And your card is perfect for this inspiration and my kind of card….perfectly CAS!!

    With Anemones as beautiful as these? who needs friends? lol I can never resist that one, Anita! I cannot imagine how I’ve resisted these for so long! LOve them stamped on your signature linen card! I’m drawn to that butterfly, Anita… are you surprised? xx

  3. Marcia R Hill

    Your BEAUTIFUL pink Anemones are all that is needed on this gorgeous CAS card Anita! I’m always drawn to the linen cardstock you use too…maybe I need to go shopping?? Lovely, lovely card my friend!! :0)

  4. Brenda Lawrence

    Your card is just beautiful Anita!! I love where you eye went on the inspiration photo. I too, love the butterflies but then my eye went to the little vase of pink flowers on those books. Your card is perfect! I love your blooms and I love your card. Well done!! Hugs, Brenda

    Leave it to you to find the most delicate detail in this inspirationt photo and recreate it beautifully. Love the white space which really focuses one’s eye on those exquisitely colored blooms. Clever girl.

  6. Cornelia (fun stamping)

    I was wondering how you made this card and had to take a second look at the inspiration picture…pretty sneaky 😉 – but well chosen! Beautiful card. Who doesn’t love a bouquet of flowers!

  7. Mac Mable

    What a clever take on the inspiration photo and a great spot with the vase and pretty flower. Your card is perfectly CAS and so very beautiful x

  8. Bev Kastman Buenker

    At first, I wondered how you got those pretty blooms from this photo. Then I saw them. You’re so clever. And isn’t it funny how our eyes are drawn to different things in the same photo? I love how that works! Your sentiment describes my thoughts of you every single day. Sure wish I’d have won the big lottery here this past week. We’d be much closer if I had, lol!! Beautiful card, and sending hugs and misses dear friend. xoxo

    You’ve done a beautiful job with layering these pretty posies, Anita! I thought at first glance before I read your post that you had done an exquisite no-line watercoloring! To do that with inks is very impressive and, of course, I think it is tres CASlicious with all that pure white!! Thank you for the shoutout for the Purple Day Hop initiated by my Croatian friend Fiki, whose husband has the disease. I’m glad that Sandie was able to join in and tell her story and that the TO Team is supporting her and spreading it further!! Mwah! LYAMYMA. LCS! Hugs and kisses, Darnell

    Beautiful CAS-ilicious design Anita! Love your beautiful anenomes and wonderful sentiment. Crisp, clean, perfection! xx

  11. Gerrina

    I do hope to see those anemoons in my garden later this year and maybe they will look as beautiful as the ones you made on this card! Hugs, Gerrina

  12. Rosemary D

    oh what a lovely take on the inspiration photo, anita! you have knocked it out of the park once, again!

    A beautiful and elegant CAS card. Love the pretty colours. Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday this week.

  14. Carol Steedman

    What a beautiful CAS design Anita and your little flowers are so pretty. I love the textured card base too!

    So pretty, Anita – I love the little splash of glittery texture in the centre of those pretty blooms – it really completes the design. Wonderful CAS design 🙂

  16. Bobby Hagen

    The flowers are the first thing I noticed too, Anita, and then I went for those on the pillow. Coral or pink, it doesn’t matter. Your lovely little bouquet is quite stylish.

  17. maria f.

    Way to pick out that CAS element in the photo and create such a beautiful, crisp CAS creation based on it!

  18. BarbGhig

    How did I miss this post…my sincere apologies for my late visit, Anita! Your Anemones are absolutely GORGEOUS! I love that you spotted the white books and vase, and your color palette is beautiful! I also love how you stamped the leaves in different shades of green and used black Stickles for the flower centers…it’s details like these that make your CAS card so special, my friend! Barb xx

  19. Kara

    You have a very thoughtful way about you, Anita, of course you saw the flower detail! Your flowers are gorgeous, and welcoming, just like a home. I’m so late in stopping by – sorry about that!

  20. Nandini

    So sweet and pretty. Love the soft look. Great to see you in the ATSM gallery. Hope to see you again soon. Nandini, DT
