Time Out Challenge #102 Love Photo Reminder


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 matching die.



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.
