TIME OUT Challenges #12

Friday Eve has finally come around again and that means it is time for a new challenge at TIME OUT Challenges.

I am very excited about this challenge as we are getting the chance to CASE one of my all time favourite crafters Anita. I found Anita's blog pretty soon after I started blogging and immediately fell in love with her CAS creations. She continues to inspire me and is one of the kindness most encouraging crafters in our community, always visiting blogs and leaving comments to enthuse us to create more. Check out her blog My Papercraft World and be inspired!

Here is my take on Ainta's card:


I was inspired by the colours, layout and die cut sentiment in Anita's card here:


This is the first time I have used a stencil! It took me ages to position and layer up the die cut sentiments but I got there in the end. Thanks Anita for the inspiration!

Our Guest Designer this week is Shona. I have recently discovered Shona's blog Twine Around and I can tell you her creativity is amazing. I urge you to go and sign up to her blog so you don't miss out!

Before you kick back and take TIME OUT to create with us, take a look here at the wonderful cards our team have created for you

I will enter this into the August challenge at STAMPlorations-stamping and die cuts and  SS work it Wednesday-blue and finally the Mixed Media Card Challenge-Summer

  15. Your first bout with stenciling, Sandie, is utterly and completely gorgeous. You've drawn inspiration from Anita, and transformed it into your own style, with a 'twist' of a new technique. Sooo impressive! The die cuts: perfect special touch with the shadow effect!
    Hugs~c
