Less is More - Just One Word

Less is More Challenge
"Our final challenge for 2011 is 


Whatever type of clean and simple card you make, the sentiment must consist of simply one word. 

I guess our card to you would merely say "Thanks ". There are lots of sentiments where a single word can say it all... Enjoy, Welcome, Peace, Joy, Birthday, Sympathy, Love, Thanks etc.."
For my card I have used Paperartsy Travel - Plate 3 simply stamped with Adirondack Espresso
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas,

Less is More - Let it Snow

A new challenge at Less is More!
This time our theme is 
Let it Snow!
 For my card I stamped swirl / sentiment (free with magazine) and extra snowflakes (Chocolate Baroque) with Versamark and embossed in White EP.  I then sponged DI China Blue and Adirondack Eggplant and spritzed with water mixed with mica powder. Very shimmery - although this doesn't show up!
See you next week!

Less is More - Green

Less is More have a new challenge.
It's the first week of the month and so once more it's a Colour challenge, this week we have chosen
We're being kind, thinking that this challenge may allow you to catch up on any Christmas cards you may need to make... but of course any occasion card will be wonderful.

For my card I have used the 2 trees stamp from Chocolate Baroque "Fat Robin", embossed in gold and coloured with DI Shabby Shutters. Sentiment is from same set, but just masked off "Merry"!

Thanks for looking

Bah Humbug - Fabric

The team at Bah Humbug would like to see Fabric on our creations this week. 

I was making some wall hangings / calendars to make for our Christmas Fayre over at the school and thought this would perfect as a Christmas gift.

The base is some thick card which I "crackled" using emulsion and PVA (the Sheena Douglass way!).  Added a fabric heart, punched some holes for the cord using the Crop - a - Dile and stuck on a calendar pad!

Thanks for looking
