Hello … bonjour! Hope your Christmas preparations are coming along nicely … or are even complete … for those well organised souls among us! Over at Time Out we’re starting a fresh new challenge today … this fortnight we’re Inspired By Words … Celebrate…Friends…Family…Life! Here’s where I went with our words … celebrating the Greatest Gift of All …
A one layer card … with the bottom third masked off, I stamped the starry background in Delicata silver and gold, courtesy of two turns of the Concord & 9th Bitty Burst Turnabout. The Holy Family in the stable and the sentiment come from Hero Arts … and were stamped using Tsukineko Brilliance Black … the stable into the space between the ‘stars’ … and the sentiment grounding the scene. It’s deliciously shimmery IRL … though of course I couldn’t capture that with my photo!
Where will our words take your creativity? You can use any or all of them to inspire your card … we’d love if it you joined us in the gallery. We’re sponsored by STAMPlorations (thanks, Shery!) … our overall winner (as voted for by the DT) will win a $15GC … and there’ll be a random draw from all the entries for a goodie bag of stamps or dies. As usual, our winner will also be invited to design with us in a future challenge. All the details are over at Time Out, along with heaps of scrumptious inspiration from our wonderful DT … and from our uber talented Guest Designer, my lovely friend, Michele from I Card Everyone. Pretty sure you’ll know Michele and her always amazing cards … if not, you need to! Either way, do pop over for a visit … enjoy a gentle wander through all the gorgeousness on offer … and say hello while you’re there … you’ll love it!
