Guest Designer for Time Out Challenge #89



Hello there.  I am excited and honoured to be the guest designer for Time Out challenge #89.  It is their Home Sweet Home photo challenge sponsored by STAMPlorations.  Here’s the photo inspiration.



There are so many things in this photo to be inspired by. I just couldn’t ignore that huge world map plastered across the wall as well as the masculine colour pallet.  And this is what resulted.



The world image is from a discontinued embossing folder (EF).  Using a rubber brayer, the flat side of the embossing folder was inked with Crumb Cake.  An A2 size piece of Crumb Cake cardstock was added to the EF and embossed with the Big Shot. Next, it was trimmed down and matted onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.



Wishing was die cut twice from navy cardstock and stacked,  The sentiment was white heat embossed on a navy strip as well.



The panel was adhered to a Crumb Cake card base and glossy accents added to Wishing finished off the card.


Now it’s your turn to take some time out and join us.  Thank you for visiting.  Have a great day!
