To Brighten Your Day


I am thrilled to be here today as Guest Designer at the Time Out Challenge Blog for Challenge #62. What an honor to be designing among these talented crafters!!

Here is the Photo inspiration:

And here is my take:

I was very attracted to the group of hanging lamps in the photo. I decided to take that piece of the photo literally using PTI's Lighten Up stamps and dies. To hang the lamps, I used the chain from Joanna Sheen's Hanging Basket Die with SU Brushed Silver card stock. I just got this wonderful black and white Doodle Bug Washi Tape from The Heart Desires StoreIt put me in mind of the black frames in the inspiration photo, so I added it across the bottom of my card.

I am so grateful to have this opportunity to GD at Time Out today. Please head over to the Time Out Challenge Blog, check out what the wonderful DT has created and play along.

So thrilled to have you as a GD with us Stephanie! I love your card - those lampshades are such a fun take on the photo - and you're right about that strip of washi tape - it is the perfect graphic finishing touch! I hope that you are recovering well, and still finding some happy time to craft :) Hugs, Jill

We are so pleased you joined us as our GD and wow is your card an amazing take on the photo. I adore the cluster of lamps and what a cool hanging die, looks great in the grey colour. The washi tape is the perfect finishing touch, adding a touch of modern, graphic to the elegant lamps. Hope you are doing o.k xx

This is so whimsical and fun. I did not notice the chandelier at all when I looked at the photo originally. Now, I see it and love what you made. Thanks so much for being our Guest Designer at Time Out.
