Less is More - Music

Another very quick post today to enter this card into the Less is More challenge, which this week is music. As Christmas gets closer I am finding less and less time to blog, so for my lack of commenting I apologies, everything should be back to normal as soon as Christmas is out of the way.
Anyway this card is all Barbara Gray and it's all direct onto the card, no layers here hehe. The Joy is embossed with silver sparkle powder, didn't use a brayer mind just sponged the blue using a big and juicy. Have done a couple in gold as well but think I prefer the silver as it's more sparkly :)

Hope everyone is ready for Christmas and just incase I don't get chance again have a fantastic Christmas and New Year :) xx

Less is More - Let it Snow

Really quick post tonight, wanted to get this in for the Less is More challenge which this week is a one layer Let it Snow
Took inspiration from Chrissie for this weeks card as I had brought myself some white embossing powder and really wanted to try this technique of embossing and then inking over the top. Not sure I like the green, but will be making some more in the blue to give out :)

Not sure I will make it round everyone this week as I am so late getting on the blog, but there are some fantastic creations over there :)

Less is More - Colour Green

Bit late with this again this week for the Less is More challenge which this week is to make a card using the colour green. Well struggled again with this, spent the weekend watching Barbara Gray on Create and Craft and had a play with her stamps from lesson one using a big and juicy.
Have enjoyed making prety patterns with this corner stamp and will have another play.

Did have a bit of a play with the brayer and a christmas tree stamp but not sure how to make these into a card that I liked.

Hope everyone has had a fab weekend, really need to make a serious start on making Christmas cards, at this rate I am going to be buying some!! hehe
