Hello! There's a new Time Out challenge going on for the next two weeks. It's our CASE challenge. We have a great card to CASE this week.
This pretty card is by Ksenija. Lots of inspiration to CASE!
Well, I thought Christmas when I saw this. Probably the red and green got me thinking that way. And I thought I'd try to do a few a month so I'm not fretting a month before Christmas! (Let's see how that goes!) I pulled out this border set by PTI and also some new fabulous inks from Catherine Pooler Designs. They really stamp nicely and the colors are so vivid! Also, they stamped these new stamps beautifully. I did use my MISTI, but they stamped the new stamp so much better that other ink pads. After I stamped the green and red images, I made sure it was dry and then stamped the pine branches in Versamark and embossed it in antique gold powder. Love the look. I think I saw one of the PTI designers do this and that's where I got the idea. I then stamped the sentiment with Versamark and used the same powder. I added gold sequins randomly. On Kesenija's card, she had some stamping on her background. I stamped the pine branch around the red piece in Versamark ink, but you can barely see it. I've got to make more of these!
This challenge is sponsored by Happy Little Stampers. Check out the Time Out blog for more information and to see cards by the design team and our guest, Marjan.
