Timeless Tuesday #142

Hi everyone,

It’s Beate and it’s my turn to be the Timeless Tuesday hostess for today. I love the Out of the Box Technique and use it quite frequently for bigger images. So that’s my challenge for you today. Create a card with the out of the box technique. You don’t need to have Nestabilities to create this look. If you don’t have any, draw a shape around your image, cut it out, and cut out the part that hangs out with scissors.

For my sample I stamped the raspberries from the gorgeous Berry Sweet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Flourishes Classic White cardstock. For more details on my card design, please visit my blog.

It was an honor to have Rosemary Dennis join us as Guest Designer last month… weren’t her designs amazing?  This month, we’re very happy to welcome Miriam Napier as our November Guest Designer!  We know you’re going to love what she has to share with you all month!

Now, take a peek at what the other Timeless Tuesday designer have created for today…

    I just linked up my card for this awesome challenge–I’ve never done the Out of the Box technique before!! (thanks for the hint on how to do this without Nesties, Beate. I fall in that Spellbinder-less category!!). Anyway, thanks for a great challenge.

    I had a great time visiting the DT’s blogs and spreading some comment love all around. :) Thanks for the beautiful inspiration, ladies!

    I was put onto this challenge when I made a comment as a DT for another challenge. I had been wondering for ages how the ‘out of the box’ technique was done and after seeing Silke’s entry into our challenge I had to find out more. Love all the4 DT cards and the stamps are just fabulous. xx
