Time Out #89 - Home Sweet Home Challenge

Hi friends!  The new challenge at Time Out is up!  It's our Home Sweet Home challenge where we give you a picture in a home to be inspired by.
 
Here's this challenge's photo.  I love these colors!
21 Ways to Make the Industrial Look Work for You including brick veneer, pallet coffee tables and map walls:

I did something real simple because it's been a busy week for me!  Too much fun to be had in this short period of time we call "summer"!  So I used this new stamp concept that I'm obsessed with!  They are the turnabout stamps from Concord & 9th.  The one I used today is the Triangle Turnabout.  I stamped it in blue, kraft, and brown inks then again in Versamark and embossed in gold.  (My stamping is a little wonky!  The triangles don't match up very well.  I really need to fix that next time!)  I took these colors from the photo.  I stamped a whole panel then cut it in half and attached it to the card base.  I wanted to use the same blue color for the die cut, so I dragged the ink pad on some white cardstock and die cut the word from that.  I added gold sequins to finish it off.

I love, love, love your take on the inspiration. It's such a wonderful color palate, and you have used it wonderfully! Great graphic design. Love the sentiment on the top!

Love the different approach on the photo. The colour palette is beautiful. I bought that turnabout, but have yet to ink it up. You may have just inspired me to give it a try. Great card.

I think it is a great take on the photo. You hit the colours perfectly. And I would never have noticed the triangles don't match up...actually I can hardly tell now!!

So cool, Lisa ... I love that Triangle Turnabout too ... and the colours you've used to make this stylish panel are just delcious! The curvy sentiment is a great contrast to the graphic panel! Hugs, Anita :)

I don't think there's anything wrong in your triangle stamping, this looks fantastic! Great use of the colors of the photo, a wonderful masculine card.

This is amazing. I love graphic stamps, but never know exactly what to do with them. Clearly, you KNOW. Fantastic masculine card.

I love the graphic design you used - that triangle turnabout stamp is fabulous and looks great in those masculine colours (I still have ink mine up - thanks for the inspiration!). Great card!
