Reminder: Time Out Challenge # 87

Hello there! Hope your well and having a brilliant week. Its been freezing here and everyone has been touched by the cold and flu bug but we are all on the mend. I wanted to remind you about our current TIME OUT challenge where we are asking you to CASE a card:

I'm very excited that we are CASEing my lovely bloggy friend Cornelia of Stempel Spass. She has the most amazing style and an incredible variety of stamps that totally make me jealous!! This is the card we are asking you to CASE, which basically means you are inspired to make your own version, easy as that!!

Our Sponsor for this challenge is Happy Little Stampers and they are giving a $15 voucher to the winner. Yippee!!

For my card I decided it was about time I made a few more Christmas cards. December is approaching quickly and I have no where near enough to send out, so this will add to my collection:

I wanted to copy the basic layout of Cornelia's card, so started off by stamping the cute Santa with his tree on white CS, colouring with pencils and fussy cutting out. Once I worked out where he would be on the card, I stamped the snowy hill outline with black ink and then blended Distress Ink 'Salty Ocean' for the sky. 

The Santa was popped up on foam tape and I added white dots around him for snow with my white gel pen. To finish I stamped the sentiment in black and added some blue and clear sequins for a bit of sparkle. I hope Cornelia likes it!

The stamp images are all from Neat and Tangled 'Santa's Wonderland', as well as the sequins.

You have until Wednesday 19th July to link your projects to the TIME OUT challenge and if your wondering how to CASE, pop over to the blog to see how the rest of the Design Team have done just that. Look forward to seeing your versions in the Gallery!!

Take care

  6. I thought I commented - or was it on Instagram??? Dunno....This is such a fun Christmas card - perhaps I'll have to CASE this one....definitely thinking about it!

  7. I just love to see all the different directions taken when CASEing... what an awesome take on Cornelia's card. Love that santa and the way you have positioned him with one foot up. Makes him look extra happy. Love all of the details - the sky, the hill, the sequins....
