Less Is More Week 30 Take 2

This is my second card for the Take 3 Challenges at Less is More. For this card I've used the following weeks challenges:
Week 18 - Monochrome
Week 19 - In the Frame
Week 28 - Use Ink

I've used my new stamp set called Autumn Harvest by The Paper Company. I've used the small acorn and leaf to make a frame with the larger on in the centre with the sentiment. All stamped with Vintage Sepia Versafine on cream card.

Less Is More Week 30

It's recipe time at Less Is More and this week's recipe is Take 3 Challenges. The ones I've gone for are:
Week 12 - Off Centre
Week 14 - White on White
Week 16 - Butterfly/Butterflies

I've used the Papermania butterfly punch on the side of the card and glittered it with diamond Stickles. The Thanks is cut on the Cricut and again glittered with diamond Stickles. A very simple card.

Wild Rose Studio for Sketch N Stash 68

Definately not a CAS card today. I do find these sort of girlie cards very difficult so it makes it a lot easier when you have a sketch to follow so this is my entry for Sketch N Stash 68. It also helps when you have a themed paper pad so you know the colours are going to look good together. The pad I've used is Wild Rose Studio Floral Paper Stack. I've used the WRS Special Day image and stamped it four times onto patterned paper to layer the skirt as you can see in the second picture. I think I need to add some silicone under the frills before I put it in the post! The greeting is WRS Girly Greetings cut with SU punches. I couldn't find a paper that would do for the strip across the centre so I dug out a Martha Stewart punch that rarely sees the light of day.

Less Is More Week 29

The theme at Less is More this week is Things That Move. For this card I've used the Stampin Up set Loads of Love and the Accessories set thatgoes with it. These are great little sets and have so many uses. I've coloured it with Promarkers and mated onto some dusky pink card.

Back Again for Less Is More Week 28

I've not done any crafting since my last post. It's so hard being in my craft room and not having Millie come in and plonk herself in front of me or jump up on my lap.

But needs must and I'm going to Greta's Guilford meet on Saturday and needed to get my shoebox cards done today. No inspiration at all so I thought I'd have a go at the Less Is More challenge which this week is a One Layer Card with INK. I've made three cards so I thought I'd put them in the same post as they are similar designs.

For the first I've masked off a strip of the card and used the Creative Expressions crackle mask and lightly dabbbed with Wild Honey distress ink. I've then used the giraffe stamp from Stampin Up's Animal Stories and the greeting from Curly Cute and stamped with the same ink. It's great that you can get so many shades with one ink pad.

The secons card uses the same technique but I've used the Crafters Workshop swirl mask and Fired Brink Ink. The flower and sentiment are from the Because I Care Stampin Up set and stamped with Aged Mahogony.

The third card is slightly different as I've stamped the totrtoise from Nature's Nest above the background section using Tea Dye. The background strip is done with the French Foliage set and Antique Linen and Tea Dye.

My Darling Millie

Our beautiful darling passed away this morning at the vets. The operation was just too much for her to take.
 God Bless you Millie Mo. xxx
