Less is More - Week 33 Card No 6

Well here is another one for the Less is More 1000 challenge...

I stamped this nativity scene with black Staz on and then attached some double sided adhesive film to the front and covered it with Art Institute Crystal glitter (it doesn't show very well, but it is very sparkly).

hope you like it.

Less is More - Week 33 Card No 3

Hello again,

The next three cards for the Less is More challenge I've made are based around the same design only I've done them in Christmassy colours.  I will post each one separately so they count towards the 1000 (I hope they do even though they are the same design).

It's basically Card Candi, from the same colour pack following the circle of the sentiment.

Less Is More - Week 33 Card No 2

This is the next card for the Less Is More 1000 cards challenge.

I've stamped and embossed in silver a Penny Black 'twinking' tree and added a few gems, I have a feeling I'm going to be making this in all different colours, I really like it.  Hope you do too.

Less Is More - Week 33 Card No 1

Hi everyone, hope you all been having a good week.  Wow I've not blogged for ages, been busy with work and kids etc, but think I'm finally getting back on track.

I've been looking at all the fab entries for the Less Is More 1000 cards challenge and I've finally got my act into gear and made a few (well I couldn't miss this one)!.

This is the first...

I've stamped Paula Pascual snowflakes with memento ink  and then used a Sizzlits die.  Added a bit of glitter and hey presto.

Hope you like it.

LOTV Christmas Give Away - Day 3

Just a little note to tell you to hop over to the Lili of the Valley Blog, where there are giving away stamps from their new Christmas designs to the lucky folk who enter.  I've put my name down - have you??

Hi again,

This is my second card for the Less is More challenge, which this week has a metallic theme..

You may have seen from my previous post that I went through a bulk buying phase, I think I've about 200 of these!!  Anyway they've been sitting in a box on the shelf and now is the perfect time to dust them off.  The sentiment is Paula Pascual (sorry it's a tad wonky), but I am quite pleased with how this card has turned out - might have a use for the other 194 sunflowers afterall!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Less is More - Week 31

Well, good afternoon everyone, hope you all having a good weekend. Well it's back to school tomorrow (for both me and the kids), so the uniforms all ironed, new shoes ready and were good to go!  We've had a brilliant six weeks holiday, but I'm feeling now I need to get some sort of routine back into my life.

Something that is part of my weekly routine is the challenge over at Less is More, and this week it's a colour challenge and the lovely ladies want to see METALLIC.

"We'd like to see CLEAN & SIMPLE cards with something that has a METALLIC finish to it... ink, embossing, card, charms, actual metal... come on people let's get creative!

We are delighted to be sponsored by The Craft Barn this month.They are generously donating £20 voucher to the winner."

So here is my little offering:-

A few years ago, I went through a bit of a 'bulk buying' phase and I bought (amongst other things) about 100 of these little metal watering cans, and if I'm honest its the first time I've actually used one!

However some friends of ours have recently moved back to Mirfield, so I though it would be a good idea and combine the challenge with a new home card for Claire, Phil and their family.

Hope you like it, off to have a go at entry number two now.
