TIME OUT 3rd Birthday Bash

TIME OUT Challenge has turned three (where has the time gone?) and to celebrate, they are having a birthday party!  STAMPlorations is one of the sponsors, so some of the STAMPlorations Design Team are joining in the fun and playing along with the TIME OUT theme, which is Love/Friendship with the optional twist of spotlight stamping.

I've used one of my newest stamps, Two Of Us, to make an anniversary card.  I stamped the image on a white panel, and again on some scrap.  I punched out the spotlight area that I wanted, coloured it with Distress Inks and stuck it on top of the main image.  I added a little shading on the main image - hope that's not cheating ;)

I cut the panel using the Crazy Double Running Stitch die then added my sentiment.  On the kraft card base I stamped the hearts using Versamark.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog to see more fabulous inspiration from the team, and then pop to the TIME OUT blog to play along.
