Hello … bonjour … long time no see! This year has been a busy one outside of blogland and as a result I’ve not been here a great deal, though I have (mostly) stayed in touch with what you’ve all been creating while I haven’t been! This last couple of weeks, however, have been especially full … and that’s meant there’s been almost no opportunity to visit everyone, outside of my DT commitments. So, to those of you who haven’t seen or heard from me recently … thank you for your patience and understanding … normal service will be resumed shortly!
I’m here today because our new challenge at Time Out has just started … and this fortnight, we’re Inspired By Words … Dream Big, Be Grateful, Give Love, Laugh Lots. Here’s where I went with those words …
On a white pierced, scalloped card panel cut with a Winnie & Walter die, I stamped these lovely words and delicate single floral stem from Uniko’s You Are, Yes You stamp set. The stem was curved to create the sense of a smile … and the flower head balances the offset ‘loved’ in the sentiment. I coloured the bloom with Zigs, covered it with lots of shimmer and added some sparkling gems to finish off. The scalloped panel was added to a matching mat and then popped up onto the card base on craft foam. You can see more of the shimmer here (even though it’s a little out of focus!) …
Where will our words take your creativity? You can use any or all of them to inspire your card … we’d love it if you played along with us. We’re sponsored this time around by Uniko (thanks, Bev!) who are offering our winner, as voted for by the DT, an in-stock stamp set of their choice. As usual, our winner will also be invited to be our Guest Designer for a future challenge. The details are over at Time Out, along with heaps of lovely inspiration from our fabulous DT, which I know you won’t want to miss!
My card will be going into the gallery at …
