Only 3 Stamps on Less is More

Now you know by now that Less is More is one of my favourite challenges, but I always find the one-layer challenges…er….challenging! 


Can’t help but feel like a bit of a cheat with this fab meadow stamp from Indigo Blu though *snigger*.  Although you can’t really tell from my photo I’ve used my ink duster to add Baja Breeze “wash”  to the card (love ink dusters!).   I’ve added a little dragonfly stamp from Cardio and a greeting from Stampin’ Up ….that equals 3 stamps, so it can’t be cheating, right? :-)

Hope you like it.

My New Silhouette!

So I’m getting to know my new Silhouette Cameo!  How time-consuming is that! But I love it!  I spent ages making cutting templates for this Yorkie card for my dad-in-law (he has a little Yorkshire Terrier…FYI).


But now I can make loads of these….er….if I need another Yorkie! LOL!

Lots of Space….with Less is More

Ahhh…the sun is out and I’m suddenly inspired to blog!  It’s a quick one though cos I’m running late….for a change :-).


Chrissie and Mandy over on Less is More  are helping out with a sketch this week in a bid to get back to clean and simple.  Hmmm!  Hope this counts!  I’ve stamped the flowery things (from Inklicious)on the centre of the card and 3D’d a frame over it.

IMG_3318[1]Finished off with a little ribbon tie, I hope it’s not too fussy!  The colours are Stampin’ Ups Concord Crush and Wisteria Wonder….very spring-like.  Here’s a close up.

So off to work….hope the sun lasts, and I hope you like this!

Happy Eas….oh…

Just like Christmas…I’ve missed sharing all the little things I made for the kids and friends!  *sigh*

Here’s a couple of pics of our Easter Table anyways:
























I’ve made the flowers for the centre piece using the Stampin’ Up flower punch.  Let me know if you want to know how to make them and I’ll add a photo tutorial to my page.

The little egg place names I made by accident, while trying to figure out a box.  I eventually made the boxes too…but can’t find my photos of those!

And Annie made the lovely flower confetti for me…it’s a fab way to keep a 5 year old busy while making dinner :-).

So only a quick share today….back with some more makes later

More Ink Dusting for Easter…

….I’m addicted!!  I’m using it at every opportunity :-).

After seeing my first attempts, my dad asked me to make some little bookmarks to give out to friends at Easter time.  So in the lifetime strife for parental approval I just had to oblige :-)

Ink DustingInkyliciousStampin Up InksEaster cards 

I’ve made these the size of an ATCs and although they are all very similar to each other I love the fact that you never get two exactly the same!  I just love the technique!  The only downsize is the inky fingers after you’ve finished…heheheh.

I’ll be demo’ing this technique at my next workshop on 28th April 2012.  Watch out for details.
