Guest Designer Time Out #239...Thank You


Hello and welcome to my sadly ignored blog.  I have been doing lots of crafting lately, posting occasionally on Instagram, and not doing much with this dear old blog.  Happily, I am here today because I have the honor of being the Guest Designer at Time Out this week.  I get to play along with my friends and colleagues on the Design Team plus all the talented new DT members who joined after I left.  

We are challenged to make a card inspired by this photo:

Here is a bigger picture:

I was inspired by the bottles on the tray, and pulled out a Greetery set I haven't used in a long time called Bottled Up.  I stamped and cut out each of the two bottles in various colors, added texture to two different card fronts, and then played around with them until I had two cards I liked.

Color scheme one...

And color scheme two...

And, here they are together.  

Thanks for Visiting


  1. These are wonderful Joyce! I love the color combos you came up with and the textured backgrounds add just enough interest. Very stylish! So great to have you joining us at GD! xxx

  2. Wonderful cards Joyce - lovely colour schemes in both the masculine and feminine versions! So happy to see you’re guest designing with us this fortnight at Time Out!! Hugs, Kate!

  3. Hello Joyce! So good to have you back and to see your amazing creativity. Love the beautiful bottles ( those layering stamps - drooling) and how you got subtle texture for the background. I am thinking, I may be reaching your level of 'great creative mind' as I did something similar and actually same EF as the second on :D Sending you love <3

  4. Hi Joyce! Congrats on guesting, both versions of your card are wonderful. I like what the textured backgrounds adds to those pretty bottles!

  5. I love both of these, Joyce. Both color schemes are wonderful, and both embossed backgrounds are wonderful choices. It's wonderful to have you designing with us again. Thank you so much for joining us as GD for this challenge.

  6. I'm glad to see you back at Time Out even if it is just for a guest spot, Joyce. Your bottles are so pretty in the different color ways and the embossed background are a great take on the crystal glasses in the photo.

  7. Love both the cards, Joyce!! You've picked beautiful colors for you bottles. Thank you so much for guest designing at Time Out. Hugsxx Deepti
