Time Out #179 - You

 Hello!  It's time for a new Time Out challenge.  This week we challenge you to be YOU.  Tell us about yourself through your card.  See the Time Out blog for more information.

I made this card to tell you about how I love to use layering stencils and die cutting.  I find these two things to be so gratifying.  I love to color, but I've been finding this more to my liking and I just love the results.  My last few posts have been cards made with layering stencils and some sort of dies.  This is a Pink Fresh Studio stencil and die set called Daisy Wreath.  The last one I made was in the pink color family, so I chose to use the orange color family for this one.  I used five different distress oxide inks for this one and used the die to cut it out.  I also die cut it two or three more times from white cardstock to stack them together for dimension.  I don't know if you can see the main panel, but it has been embossed with a Dainy Diamonds embossing folder from SU that my friend Cheryl gave me for Christmas.  It's so pretty in person.  The thanks die (this was a freebie I got with an order...maybe from Taylored Expressions?  Not sure.) was die cut from orange and white cardstock and stacked for dimension as well.  I added shimmer to the word and flower centers.  Yellow crystals finished off the design.   I'm having a hard time with photos lately...this card is really very pretty in person!

This is lovely and fresh Lisa and you are so good at this layering-I just find it so hard to do! I love the CAS look too and the sequins finish it off perfectly x

This is a beautiful card. I have been watching the marketplace for layering stencils. I find layering stamps difficult to use, but it seems that stencils would be easier to get right. I enjoyed your post, and now I am inspired! Thanks for sharing this beauty with us!

Love the colours and layout of this beautiful floral wreath, Lisa! And, even though it’s a small touch, I’ve always admired your ability to perfectly place your dots, sequins, little creates a great balance when placed right and it’s something I struggle to do without a visual from somebody else!
