Time Out's 4th Birthday!

Hey everyone!  It's a special challenge at the Time Out blog!  It's our 4th birthday!  Where has the time gone?  This is the quote we'd like you to be inspired by for this challenge.  Perfect for our birthday celebration!

And to make this celebration even more special, we are sponsored by one of my favorite stamp companies...Concord & 9th!  They were so generous and allowed our Time Out design team to pick out something from their store to celebrate with.  I chose this really cool stamp and die set called Birthday Stacks.  It creates this sort of 3-D pop up card (there's a video on how to create it on the link I just noted).  It actually folds flat so it can be easily mailed in a regular A-2 size envelope.

I recently watched a video from Amy R where she colored some images using Distress Oxide inks on kraft paper.  I used the same colors on my stamped and embossed balloon and present images.  After stamping the images, I die cut them and the word celebrate at different heights so they would layer into the wrap.  Such a cute design idea!  Love their creativeness at Concord & 9th!
You can see more on the Time Out blog and the Concord & 9th blog.

I got this stamp and die set too but I haven't inked it up yet - you have totally inspired me :) I love how it looks with the kraft background - and using the DO inks is genius - I love the soft look that it created. Great card!
