Hi everyone and welcome to a new challenge theme at TIME OUT! We have a fabulous photo to inspire you:
HOME SWEET HOME
Isn't this an amazing photo??!! I don't know how this was done but love the grey with the shot of Autumn colour in the middle, so clever!! You can be inspired by any part of this photo, for example the colours, the window, the bricks....its all up to you!!
We are very lucky to have Stamplorations as the Sponsor for this challenge and they are giving the winner a $10 Gift Voucher. We are also doing two random draws where the winners will receive a Stamplorations stamp set each. How cool is that!!!!
Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Claire from Life on the Scrapheap. She makes incredible CAS designs and does amazing things with colour, especially against a white background. You really must pop over and take a look!!
I had one of those 'a-ha' moments when I first looked at this photo and knew what I was going to do straight away:
I started off by cutting a piece of grey CS the same size as my card front. I then grabbed some grey ink and stamped the leaves from Stamplorations 'Trendy Leaves 2' all over it. To create the window I used a tag die from CAS-ual Fridays 'Tag Buddies Fri-Dies'. I put the grey panel on the card front and gently drew with a pencil around the window, so I could see where it would sit. I was then able to stamp the same leaves again on the card front but this time using 'Velvet' and 'Mango Smoothie' from Altenew.
I rubbed out the pencil and popped the grey panel up on lots of foam tape. I then stamped the sentiment (from Altenew 'Beautiful Day') on a strip of white CS and put this on foam tape as well. And of course I had to finish off with some gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh as they go so well with fall colours.
I'm going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Work It Wednesday - August Challenge where their theme is 'Stamp It'.
And will also link to the Simply Create Too Challenge # 117 where their theme is 'Fall Colours'.
You have two weeks to link your projects to the TIME OUT challenge. The rest of the Design Team and our Guest Designer Claire have created some cards for you on the blog to help inspire you. I can't wait to see what you come up with in the Gallery!!
