Less Is More Week 39 - Stars

Week 39 at Less Is More and the theme is Stars. My first card is based on a card I did at a Glitter Pot class with Paula Pascal. A portion of the card is cut away and the resulting gap is linked with stars. The stars were very difficult to photograph as they are holographic. I had intended to cut them on my Cricut but when I went to use it, it was dead!. I'm hoping it's just the cable although sourcing that is proving very difficult as mine is the original one and the newer ones have a different connection. The design of this card works well with lots of things - flowers, butterflies, hearts.

My second card is using a Pollycraft image called Moon Lullaby but it does also have stars on. I've coloured lightly with watercolour pencils but not used any water.The sentiment is computer generated

Cutie Pie Challenge # 3

The Cutie Pie challenge no 3 is a recipe of the following:

Lilac/Silver Tones
Fairy Image

Well I don't really do fairys so I hope this is cute enough. It's a free download at Papercraft Inspirations by Angela Poole which I've coloured her with promarkers and used Glamour Dust on her wings and wand. I've gone over the stars with a silver stardust pen although like the silver mirri card it doesn't show in the photo. I found some lilac flower buttons in my stash but they were too plain so I've added glamour dust to them too and finished with some sparkly silver ric rac for the ribbon.

Less Is More Week 37 - Cocktail

This is my entry for the Less Is More challenge this week - the theme is Cocktail. I've used a stitching pattern which is designed as a bookmark but suits the CAS theme. The greeting is from Stampin Up's Heard From The Heart set stamped in Brilliance starlight silver. Not easy to get a picture being silver on white.

Less Is More Week 36 - Hearts

I've had a good play in the craft room today so I've got three cards for this weeks Less Is More challenge which is Hearts.

The first uses the box from Stampin Up set Out of the Box (retired) stamped in Real Red. most of the hearts are from a Inkadinkado mini set Heart Flutter but the Love heart is from I (heart) Hearts Stampin Up set. It's finished with a knotted ribbon at the top:

The second card uses the Inkadinkado Heart Flutter bird, hearts and sentiment - again with a simple ribbon at the top:

My third card uses a Penny Black stamp called So Much Love with some embossed lines above and below. I think this would have been better as a straight edged card so may trim it of later!

Week 35 and the theme at Less Is More is The Colour of Your Eyes. My eyes are blue but not quite the blue of this card unfortunately. The stamp and sentiment are by from the Widerness set by Darkroom Door stamped in Versafine. I've added glamour dust to the image and pricked the corners to finish.
