TIME OUT Challenges - Home Sweet Home


How on earth did we get to Thursday?! The days are just zooming by for me at the moment as I juggle work and life in general. Plus the beans are keeping me on my toes as Josh has finally learnt to crawl and is into EVERYTHING! Ben isn't crawling, but he can sure get where he wants to. Hence my lateness with todays post.

I'm here to share with you my card for the new challenge starting today at TIME OUT Challenges. This fortnight it is a Home Sweet Home challenge inspired by this photo...

I had so many ideas initially when I first saw this photo, but when it came to making the card none of my ideas worked, but this is how I was inspired...

I started by using the main colours in the photo and 'trying' to replicate the tile effect using  a couple of the small stamps from Background Builders: Chevrons. The 'Hello' is from All Occasion Sentiments #1.

This fortnight we have a lovely guest designer joining us, Sue, be sure to stop by Sue's blog HERE to see how she was inspired by the photo and of course the FABulous TIME OUT Challenges Design Team...

For all the info and to link up your challenge be sure to stop by the TIME OUT Challenges blog. I look forward to seeing your creations :) I'll be back again later in the week with more to share & until then, thank you for stopping by today.


  1. This is stunning and I appreciate all the work required to re-stamp all the chevron pieces so perfectly lined up.

  2. your final idea worked so well and fab use of the chevrons x

  3. Fantastic, precise stamping, Bev ... love those chevrons ... love the angled panel! Anita :)

  4. Love the fabulous movement you created on your card Bev!

  5. Great to read that you also had so many ideas by seeing this photo... And thanks for the compliment! I realy like the way you used colourfull blocks and it is stunning how you created so much movement with them!
    The beans are helping you to keep verry fit at the moment I think....
    Enjoy your weekend! Hugs, Gerrina

  6. Oh Wow! Such precise stamping Bev, guess the beans must have been asleep when this was created. Inspiring! xx

  7. This is so cool and funky!! Love that your sentiment is hanging off that angled piece, looks brilliant. I really love this challenge photo and I have ideas all over the place...however not all of them look as good on paper....wish I could photo copy my ideas straight from my brain!

  8. Love this card Bev! Very cool stamped image and the colors are so vibrant!

  9. WOW!! This card is so cool. Love the way you have the chevron going off the card like that. I think I am going to have to CASE this!!
