"Time is up" and "time is over" are basically the same exact phrases! The first refers to a time lapse, such as a countdown. 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, time is up! Time is over refers to an expiration date. I'm sorry to inform you, but your time is over to redeem the grand prize!

"Time is over. "---I have never heard this sentence.

I have heard this:
The time for talking is over. Now we need to take action.
Your turn is over. It's my turn now.

Everyone please stop. Time is up.

"Time is up." This is a common expression that means the time limit has been reached.
