Time to take Time Out and sneak a peek 2!


Hello crafting friends,

It is time to for you to take a sneak peek at our second challenge at Time Out Challenges. Today the fabulous crafter Lynn has a card to inspire you! I know you want to take a peek at Lynn's card and find out all about our next type of challenge. And to do that you just need to click here and take just a little Time Out!!

I also have a couple of cards for you today. The first one was inspired by the sketch at Crazy for CAS. I saw this sketch and knew exactly what stamp would be perfect for it! I think this grunge stamp set from STAMPlorations is becoming one of my favourite. I decided to make this into a Valentines/love card by adding some kissable lips...thanks to glossy accents and Fresh Squeezed Stamps!





I am also going to enter this into the following challenges:
Dynamic Duos-pink and pool party. I don't have a baby pink colour so I am hoping this will be o.k
CAS on Sunday-lovey dovey (such a cool name!)

I don't usually post 2 cards in one day but I realised that the deadline for CAS(E) this Sketch is this morning. I liked this weeks sketch but hadn't really thought of an idea until I saw the really fab code word at CASology this week-Contrast-the DT have made 2 cards one that contrasts the other. I thought this was a unique idea and really got my mojo in gear. I decided to follow their lead and looked through my cards on Flickr for a non CAS card (I had to go back a long way!) and then did a CAS version of it.
Here is the CAS version using STAMPlorations stamps:


The original was posted in Dec 2011 and here it is, same colour scheme but definitely not CAS! Plus this time my dancers are not digi images but heat embossed to give texture. This was such a fun challenge, I may have to do another 'contrast' card!



And before you leave, don't forget to see what the lovely Lynn has created for our sneak peek at Time Out Challenges

  1. Ooh, those are fabulous luscious lips, Sandie ... the bright pink with the soft blue is a brilliant combination! Your CASified card ... simple and elegant, the sheer ribbon's a lovely soft touch with the bold black silhouette! Anita :)

  2. Great cards, Sandie! The look of collage stamping in the first card is very fun and I love the elegant look of your CASology card -the heat embossing really makes the couple stand out from the card.

  7. I don't think I've seen any of your not CAS cards, you say you had to go back to 2011 and that was "before my time". Love how you "CASEd" yourself for this challenge! I also like your first one - a real "Sandie signature" card!
