Less is More - Stars 2

Back again, thought I would have another go at the Less is More challenge. Have been having a bit of a rumage through some old stash and found this embossing pattern that I brought years ago to use with glitter snow. Never really used it much so I thought I would give it another go.
The white paste is quiet sparkly, but doesn't show up to well in the photo and mounted it on holographic silver card and stamped sentiment straight on to the card. :)

Less is More - Stars

Well this week at Less is More the challenge is for STARS. Struggled a bit this week and I don't have anything stary apart from this Fizzy Moon stamp.
I think I should have really used the stamp direct onto the card, but then I would't have been able to colour it with copics, so I cut the image out after colouring it and added some spray and sparkle to the star. I then couldn't decide what to do with the card blank as it just seemed to plain so I put it through the cuttlebug with the dotty embossing folder, then realised I couldn't stamp the sentiment direct onto the card, oh well. Added a few stars and that's about it for this week.

Hope everyone has had a fab half term and weekend, I have just got my boys back after they spent a week with their dad so off to spend some time with them :)

Less is More - Polka Dots

Woot managed to get another post in today. Less is More challenge this week is Polka Dots. Managed to miss last weeks challenge as I couldn't think what to do and hadn't got a cocktail image (have now mind!) and then the working week took over so was determind to get a card in to this weeks challenge.
Put the base card through my cuttlebug with the dotty embossing folder and used a flower from hunkydory, which I brought ages ago and still haven't used and stamped the sentiment with memento Rich cocoa. Not very imaginative I know but I do love the simplicity of these cards, mind you if you see my post below, thats a card I went all out on with embelishments hehe.

Hope everyone has had a great weekend and have a great half term if your lucky enough to have the week off :)

Kenny K - Get Dotty

Have been a bit of a bad blogger lately, really don't know where the time has been going. Have been making cards but haven't blogged a lot of them as they haven't fitted any of the challenges but this weeks Kenny K challenge is Get Dotty.
Made this card a few weeks ago for my son's girlfriend for her 18th. It's an 8x8 card, which I love. Used the fab Kitty Katastrophe and coloured her with copics and promarkers. Papers are from a DCWV called Hippie Chic, which is just full of brightly coloured, sparkly paper and I love it! Added die cuts and flowers and lots of sparkle, dont think it shows up to well on the photo.

I also made a box for this card as I didnt want to squeeze it into an envelope.

Thank you for stopping by and apologies for not entering many Kenny K challenges, I love these images and have sooo many now after the blog hop win i'm still trying to get through them all :)

Less is More - One Layer ♥

This week at Less is More is time for another one layer card using a heart. Always struggle with this style and tried various different things with heart stamps but couldn't get anything to work.
Found a heart stencil while having a rummage and used a big and juicy to sponge through it. Used memento rich cocoa to stamp the foilage image, bee and sentiment and added a few white highlights.

Will add this card to the collection for my mother. Off to do some commenting, didn't get chance last week. Have a great weekend all :)

Less is More - The colour of your eyes

Well the girls over at Less is More set a fab challenge this week, to create a card using the colour of your eyes.
After seeing some of the amazing creations for this challenge, am not to sure about this card. Used a daisy stamp with the waterfall big & juicy and cut out a seperate flower which has been coloured with promarkers and a bit of glitter added to the centre. Don't think the cut edge round the daisies is neat enough, but liked the idea.

Anyway quick post tonight, hope everyone has had a fab week and roll on the weekend :)
