Hello there. This is the reminder post for Time Out (TO) photo inspiration challenge #102. It’s the half way point, so there is still plentry of time to play along. Here’s the inspiration photo again.
My first card incorporated pretty much all the elements in the photo except for the floor. So this time the brown wood floor is the inspiration jump off point for my love theme card.
I didn’t want to make a brown dominant card, so this NBUS otter represents my brown. It was stamped with Memento black ink on a scrap of Neenah cardstock, coloured with Copics, then die cut out with the matchingdie.
‘Sending’ was die cut three times to be stacked for dimension — once from a scrap of DIY black glitter paper in my stash and twice from regular black cardstock. Love and hugs’ was white heat embossed on a black strip. The NBUS and already retired ‘xoxo’ was die cut from red glitter paper. I’m sure I have other unused products that have already retired. 😂
A piece of Whisper White cardstock was embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. It was mounted wth foam adhesives to a white top folding card base before all the pieces were assembled. Clear glitter was added to the heart to finish off the card.
It has been an honour to GD for TO. Make sure you check out the wonderful cards from the TO design team HERE for more inspiration. Can’t wait to see what inspires you. Thank you for stopping by. Have a super day.
Valentines is coming up and this photo is perfect. I took inspirations from the colours, the word ‘love’, the hearts and the stripes to create a non-traditional colour Valentine / love card.
Using the MISTI, the Diagonal Stripes background stamp was lightly inked with black Memento ink and stamped onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Because the stamp is cling rubber and the stripes are diagonal, it was inked lightly so that I can align the couple image (discontinued) so that the stripes went up and down. The image was white heat embossed twice, then the piece was put back into the MISTI to be re-stamped several times to darken up the lines. It was difficult to get a good impression of the lines, so I went in with a black marker. The image was then die cut out with a heart die (retired).
In my large collection of word dies, I couldn’t believe I don’t own a love word die. Well, thank goodness for alphabet dies. ‘Love’ was die cut from scraps of X-Press It paper using Bold Alphabet. It was Ombré coloured with Copics then covered with VersaMark and heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder for some sparkle. ‘You’ (unknown brand) was die cut from a gold embossed piece from my stash. I don’t have gold cardstock, so I created my own with gold embossing powder. I will emboss a piece of cardstock larger than what I need so that on the rare occasion that I need it, I have some on hand.
A white A2 stitched rectangle panel was adhered to a top folding card base before the card was assembled. Glossy Accents was added to the word ‘you’ to give it some dimension and gold sequins finished off the card.
Hope you will take some time out of your busy schedule to play along. The TO design team have made some wonderful cards to inspire you and you can view them HERE. Thank you for visiting. Have a great day.
