Time Out Twist

G'day folks!

It's been a full on holiday weekend for us in the last few days. We took the kids to see Vivid on Sunday which is a festival of light where huge light projections are placed on the Opera House and other well known buildings around the city.  So clever - the boys loved it (although I have to admit I spent most of the time walking around in a mild panic, in case they got separated from us. The crowds were horrendous!)

Time Out has an inspiration challenge this week based on this beautiful card by Deepti:

I focused on Deepti's main colours for my inspiration - I love how she's torn her card stock diagonally so I based my design on a diagonal slant. I used an embossing folder to emboss a diagonal strip and then clustered my WMS Funky Flowers around it. I've stamped some blooms in colour, then white embossed some on vellum to add some softer texture. The embossing folder created a crease along the card stock - so annoying when that happens - so I covered this up with a stamped, dotted line from WMS My Kind of Guy.

That's it for this post - I'll be back later with the latest Colour Q palette. Thanks for stopping,

Claire x


  1. This is so gorgeous! The arrangement of flowers and the mix of coloured and vellum is a very cool look.

  2. This is gorgeous Claire. The EF used diagonally like this is such a good idea and the vellum leaves add a lovely texture. Thanks for joining us at TO

  3. Oh my this is such a beauty! I love those gorgeous blooms and I am so glad my card could inspire you :) so happy to see you play along at TOC!

  4. Oh my, Claire ... this is a stunner! Gorgeous texture in the embossing, wonderful dimension in those lovely blooms (a fave set!) and a perfect balance between the delicate vellum and the dramatic black ... beautiful! Delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out! Anita :)

  5. Brilliant Case. Love how you've embossed the card front diagonally - have to try this. Love the colours you used too and the arrangement of flowers.

  6. Congrats on getting honours at TO Claire x
