Thank You For The Beautiful Ways You Touch My Life

 



Time Out Challenge #182 begins today. It is our 7th Birthday celebration! Can you believe it?? Our challenge runs from Thursday, Feb 25, 2021 to March 10, 2021. Our wonderful sponsor is STAMPlorations. Challenge winner will receive a $40.00 gift voucher for the STAMPlorations store.

Our Guest Designer this week is Karen of Random Reflections. Karen is a crafter and photographer and her work is very colorful and often in a CAS style. Treat yourself to a visit to her wonderful blog, and show her some love. You will be full of inspiration after your visit.

To create my card, I used the Shower of Flutters ARTplorations Stencil and applied Distress Oxide ink all around it. I spattered the panel with Heidi Swapp's Gold Color Shine. I then added the sentiment from STAMPlorations Beautiful You stamp set. I die cut the inked panel with Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangle Dies and mounted it on a black card base. Although the sentiment is not a birthday one, it reflects how meaningful it is to me to belong to this design team, and especially to thank Sandie Munro for inviting me to join years ago. She quickly became a very dear friend, and for so many reasons, I am so pleased and proud to be a part of this design team.

Please hop on over to the Time Out Challenge Blog to see the wonderful creations that Karen and the Design Team came up with to inspire you. Come play with us!

Oh Stephanie thank you so much for your kind words-it means more than you know and especially at the moment. I am blessed to have you on the GD and always inspiring the players. And the card, my fav colour! I adore how this works, lovely flow and a real arty feel to it and especially love the splashes of gold xx

Karen said...

So much to love about this card---the colors, the "dancing" butterflies, the pierced border and those fabulous gold splatters! Thanks for having me as your Guest Designer. It's been an honor!

Your card is absolutely stunning Stephanie! I love the drift of butterflies in their dramatic purple sky with flecks of sunshine gold. What a wonderful tribute to this fabulous challenge too - you can tell the team is close and I love that :) Vicky x

Congrats to you too! So great to be in the team together for so long; I like your style and the way you get inky in so many ways; you inspire me and get me thinking of ways of stamping or techniques I don't use that often..thanks! Stay save, Hugs, Gerrina
