New Challenge at Less Is More!



Hi friends!
We have a new, fun challenge for you at Less Is More. We ask you to bring something back -to use something that you've not used on your cards in ages / something that is out of fashion or dig out
older stash items that you haven't played with anymore.

Happy Little Stampers continues as our April sponsor, play along for a change to win!


There's plenty of DT inspiration in our challenge blog HERE. Our guest designer this time is the wonderful Cara who made such a cute card for us with some older, adorable bunny stamps... Don't miss it! Also Sue is joining us as guest designer with the first stamp she ever bought! How cool is that! Thank you Cara and Sue for joining us in this challenge. 

I've made a super simple card using a magazine freebie stamp from years back + a moroccan pattern background stamp from Stamping Up, also several years old. I've added color to the stamped square image with distress inks (the image is heat embossed so it resisted ink), used Wink of Stella on the butterfly and also splattered some white paint on top. The sentiment is by STAMPlorations and not old or neglected! :) I've popped the stamped square up with fun foam for dimension and added a couple of sequins for additional sparkle. 

I was inspired by:

Splattering... This is my second entry, I splatter a lot these days! :) Please click the photo larger to see the subtle white paint splatters.

This is a very feminine card, isn't it! 



Thanks for popping by and I hope to see you playing along!

  4. Loving the Craft Stamper freebie Nonni. (Ha! I've just been cataloguing mine, so I could spot that one easily) I bet it looks so good as a glossy tile and you teamed it with two other superb stamps too. The Moroccan border is luscious. Great use of pastel colours too. Hope you have a super weekend xx

  20. Your design makes sure this little square image doesn’t look lost or alone, this layout would be brilliant for a lot of my stamps, I’m sure.
