Time Out Challenges
byJeanne Jachna


Do you love to play challenges?  We're sponsoring the Time Out Challenges #118.  That means if you play along there you could win a $20 gift certificate from Poppystamps.  You can double your chances of winning by playing along in our monthly challenge too because this month Anything Goes!  (You can find the current Poppystamps monthly challenge by clicking on the badge in the right column of this blog. 

Here's the Time Out Challenge this week:


I started by cutting a Harvest Pumpkin die from orange card stock.  I added some distress ink around the bottom of the pumpkin to add some dimension.  Next I selected a Double Stitch Rectangle Frame that was large enough to frame the pumpkin base.


I inked up the negative inside of the Double Stitch Rectangle Frame with Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade and splattered it with  Carved Pumpkin.   I colored up a second piece of card stock with Carved Pumpkin to use as a matt behind the frame.


I stamped Peony Stems florals with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Copic Markers.  I arranged the florals on a sheet of clear plastic to decide how they would be arranged before I adhered them in place.

I added a few extra leaves and a flower from a now retired stamp set to accent the pumpkin vase.


A simple sentiment is tucked in the upper corner of the frame.


I hope you find some time to play along at The Time Out Challenges Blog this week!
