Time Out: Congratulations

I've updated my stamps for sale page.  If you are interested, please click here.

Hello there! It's time for another challenge at Time Out.  The theme for our current challenge is celebration with an optional twist to use butterflies.  I am really loving the Uniko butterfly stamps I have so I had a great time embossing in white and doing a bit of coloring.  Coloring is not my go to technique, but it was definitely enjoyable to spend some time doing so.

Sarah is our guest designer this month.  She is a fabulous creator. Be sure to pop on over to her blog to be inspired.

We also have a fabulous sponsor from our design team, Shery.  Thanks to Shery, Stamplorations is sponsoring us this week.  Below is a little bit more information about Stamplorations.

About STAMPlorations:

David and I (Shery) are a husband-and-wife team and we own and manage
STAMPlorations™ from our home office in Central California. All of our
stamps are proudly made in the USA. Our clear stamps are made from the
finest, non-yellowing photopolymer resin. I'm an avid paper crafter
and I love graphic design, so in June 2013, my husband and I launched
our stamp company featuring my designs and illustrations. Through our
stamp line, we hope to encourage crafters of all ages and experience
levels to "Stamp with all your ART!". Our regular stamp release is
every other month, but in June 2014, we began releasing one large (5"
by 7") stamp set in between our official release months. Please stop
by our shop at to see our current

And Shery is offering the following prizes:


* 1 stamp set for the entry that has the twist (butterflies)
* 1 stamp set for the entry that has a STAMPlorations stamp (with or
without the twist)

We love seeing how you are inspired by the challenge at Time Out.  Be sure to pop on over and check out the design team's creations and play along with us.  You will not be disappointed!

great idea to emboss in white and then colour-I will have to try this. And the colouring looks pretty expert to me x

Beverley said...

I agree with Sandie, fabulous way to emboss & colour, which gives the impression of no line colouring really nicely. Love the colours you've used too :) Hugs Bev x
