Time Out #177 - Photo Inspiration Challenge

 Hi friends!  It's time for a new Time Out challenge.  This is our photo inspiration challenge.  The beautiful monochromatic photo is below.

We are sponsored by STAMPlorations for this challenge.

I have used a stencil from their ARTplorations line, however I could not find it on their site.  It may have been retired.  However, it's a cool one and I thought perfect for this challenge.  I started with die cutting a fog cardstock panel with a stitched rectangle then used Versamark ink through the stencil.  I embossed it with silver embossing powder.  Then I found a small snowflake die and a merry die and cut from white cardstock.  In the center of each snowflake, I placed a silver crystal.  I forgot to mention I spritzed the panel with shimmer spray before adding the die cuts.

Time Out #176 - Inspired by Words

 Hi everyone!  The new Time Out challenge is our Inspired by Words challenge.  Here's the quote:
"Every time a bell rings, an angel gets its wings."

I've had this Sunny Studios stamp set for quite some time and haven't used it yet.  The bells and bows are three-step stamps.  I love those bells!  They look so shiny, and yet it's just the colors of ink used and the design of the stamp.  I started by die cutting the panel with a stitched rectangle, then blended some tumbled glass oxide ink on the background.  I aged it a bit with gathered twigs oxide ink.  Then I stamped the branch twice to fill in the panel.  The bells and bows were stamped and die cut and adhered to the panel.  I found this sentiment in an old Papertrey Ink stamp set.  I added crystals and before I adhered the panel to the base, I spritzed it with some shimmer spray.  That shimmer is so pretty!  I added crystals to finish it off.
