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

Guest Designer...Poppystamps

Hello and happy March.  I am posting on my blog for the first time in a long time.  It may seem like I haven't been crafting, but nothing could be further from the truth.  I've been crafting--just not posting.  Call me lazy, and you would be correct.  I am posting occasionally on Instagram--so much quicker and easier.

This is an exciting post for me, however.  I am joining you today as the Guest Designer for Poppystamps in March.  The challenge this month is "Die Cuts Only" and I pulled out a few different Poppystamps dies to create this card.

The dies I used are:  Thank You Background, Pine Twig, Whittle Fox, Whittle Moose and Whittle Squirrel.  I wanted a masculine look for my card, so went with kraft and some other rich fall colors.

While I was fiddling around, I made another version of this card using a completely different color scheme.  Hard to imagine that it is the same main die cut.  This card says 'spring' to me.

I hope that you will pull out some dies and join us for the March Poppystamps challenge.

Thanks for Visiting
