Less Is More ,,,,??

Hi all :-) this is a very quick card from me this evening !!

I made this with the Less Is More challenge in mind whose theme is One Layer + Embossing and also the Simon Says Stamp and Show whose theme is ‘Old Wives Tales’ I went with ‘A stitch in Time’

I used SU Crumb Cake card, bought from Mandi and I used a stamp from the Tim Holtz Haberdashery set. I inked it with Vintage Photo distress ink and embossed with Vintage photo embossing powder. I then coloured all the edges with the ink too. The tape was in a Christmas cracker and the ribbon slider was a purple brad that I inked and embossed too. I added the Graphic 45 chipboard button and used twine to make ‘9’ !

Thanks for looking and I look forward to hearing what you think,,, I might have cheated here adding the tape and button ,,,,,

Papertake Weekly ,,,, Bloom and Grow Challenge

Hi all :-) Hope the weather is blooming marvelous where you are to get you in the mood for this weeks theme on the Papertake Weekly Challenge !!


we are sponsored by The Ribbon Girl and the prize is a fab Molly at the Beach stamp for one lucky entrant :-)

I used this very cute Molly Blooms stamp, this one is called Sunflower Molly. I coloured her with Copics and layered her top, shorts, wellies and sunflower, inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. The papers are My Minds Eye from the Mabel pad. I used a Martha Stewart Pansy border punch and a ribbon, watering can charm and brad that were in my stash. The flowers are a mix of Prima and WOC and I added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops and stickles for sparkle.

I made a pocket on the inside to hold seeds or stamped images ,, depending on who I will send it to ,,, maybe a mixture of both !! Smile The seed packs were a free download from here .
