Hi there everyone, hope your having a good week and had a chance here and there to do some crafting!! I'm just wanting to remind you about our current TIME OUT challenge. We have a 'Home Sweet Home' theme for you this time with a photo to inspire you:
Its a rather masculine and stylish room with so many different elements to inspire you. You could create something based on a piece of furniture, the colours, what an item represents etc......its totally up to you!!
We are very lucky to have Stamplorations as the Sponsor for this challenge and the winner will receive a $15 voucher. Oh the things I could buy with that!!
For my card design I knew I had a stamp of the world somewhere and wanted to capture the idea of someone being away in another country:
I don't think I've ever actually stamped out this map of the world before, so its nice to finally get that stamp dirty!!
I started by die-cutting the tag from white CS. I stamped the 'world' twice (using my MISTI) with black Versafine ink and then heat embossing with clear embossing powder for some shine. I then used a hole punch and tied a bow with some gold twine.
For the background I found this paper which is covered with words in different languages, so I die-cut the shape from it and adhered to the card front. I put the tag on some foam tape, added the fussy cut and heat embossed sentiment on foam tape as well, and glued on a few gold sequins for shine.
The map and sentiment are from Concord and 9th 'Map Love'. The patterned paper is from Basic Grey 'B-Side'. The stitched-tag die is from Pretty Pink Posh. The shaped die is from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps 'Bubble Box Fri-Dies' and the gold sequins from Neat and Tangled.
I have two challenges I would like to enter:
