Less is More #277

The theme this week at Less is More is something that pops or bangs. After some thought I decided to make a card using bubble wrap to create a background, after all nothing has a more satisfying pop than bubble wrap!

I started by masking an area using strips of torn paper. I then wrapped some bubble wrap around an acrylic block and stamped using twisted citron distress ink. I then used my Dutch Doobadoo burlap mask with my distress spritzer and a squeezed lemonade distress marker. The sentiment was a magazine freebie stamp.

Thank you for visiting today, happy crafting.

Less is More #275

It's been one of those weeks again, but I've just managed to complete I card in time for this week's challenge at Less is More. It's colour week and the challenge is to create a CAS card using pastel shades.

For my card I gave my Tattered Lace 'Thanks' die another outing. The white panel was embossed using my Papertrey Ink linen embossing plate. The central strip was decorated using my Tim Holtz distress marker spritzer with my Dutch Doobadoo burlap mask and a lilac Promarker.

Thank you for visiting my blog, I'd love it if you were able to leave a comment.

I have recently started making my own postcards and I thought I'd share a picture of a couple I made over the weekend.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
Have a great day.

Less is More #274

The challenge this week at Less is More is to create a card using designer paper in a CAS style. I didn't manage to take part in last week's LIM challenge, as my cardmaking and blogging had to take a bit of a back seat due to other things that were happening, so I was determined to take part this week.

The papers I used were Sizzix Little Sizzles Watercolours, they've been in my crafting stash forever so are probably no longer available. The word die is by Tattered Lace, I cut the word a couple of times in black card as well as the orange paper and layered them up. I also used my SSS stitched circles and stitched squares dies and the linen card is from Papermill.

I actually had a lovely surprise the other day when I discovered that I'd been chosen as the April Winner at Less is More, it's really made my week.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
