Less is More 1000 card challenge Part 6

Pin It

Hee Hee!

Yep one more to add to the mix!

Submission 6 – I have wanted to emboss this wording stamp for ages and tonight I finally had a go and WOW I love it.  Stamped with Brown VersaColour and then embossed with Enchanted Gold ‘Heat it up’ powder it has left the most lovely chocolate/orange/golden colour font.  The papers are from First Edition Festive Treats and I think I will be making a few more of this one!


Thank you Chrissie and Mandy for pushing me into starting my Christmas cards, but also to everyone for making this challenge so enjoyable and for your wonderful comments!

Okay I am back with another couple…. Sorry for the lack of wording yesterday but I had spent nearly a hour playing with my photo’s, putting in links, telling a few jokes ha ha ha and Bl**dy Blogger decided to crash! I know I should know better! but I was tired and didn't know if I would get time to blog them today!

So a bit of background for anyone who has missed it

Less is More is at week 33 challenge and as they have had over 1000 followers the lovely ladies Chrissie and Mandy decided to challenge us BIG style and see if we could make over 1000 cards! well girls how much do we LOVE this challenge! Anything goes as long as it remains CAS….. so

Submission 4 – a recycled card – lovely blue papers from Dovecraft Let it snow pack and the Circle snowflake from last years Christmas card.  The lovely little snowflake stamps are from one of the Fizzy moon sets…. I know that this will be used over and over!


Back in 5 with another for ya!

Sweet Cupcake!

Pin It


Just a quick visit to post a card that I made for a friend’s birthday.  These images from Bird’s Cards who has some of the most amazing freebies on her site that she has created! I also CASE’d her card with the lovely colour combo Smile


My papers are from First Edition pad….. can’t remember which pad though sorry guys!  Punch is EK and boy is it big! needs a drawer on it’s own but I love it and perfect for added jewel and pearls to really bling a card up!

Coloured with promarkers and tons and tons of glitter!

Thanks for dropping by!

Missing in Action or just a TERRIBLE BLOGGER!!

Pin It Hi all
Yes I am the worst blogger, I know, no excuses I am just terrible!
Do I get forgiven for showing you this wicked card?  Please Please say yes!
The moment I saw this BLOG I knew that I would need to buy the wonderful images, so I bought 3 one day and 2 the day after and I know that I will be back for more!  You must go and visit 
I printed out 4 – Penny, Peggy Sue, Nevaeh and wedding day – and here is the lovely Penny in Blue!  The papers are g.c.d Studios,  The Lydia Collection which I picked up for £2.00!!! the other week from ECAP and the image is coloured with Promarkers, Flexi's and Spec’s as I was having a real good colouring sessions this week!
I tried to emboss around the edge, but my pen was not really up to the job and got a bit of a mess, so wont be trying this for a while, but I could not bear to ‘bin’ this image, so I used the ‘dotty technique’ that I have seen on lovely Coops Blog, to try and hide some of the damage!
I will get around to checking out some blogs this weekend, as nothing planned how lovely is that – oh well washing, ironing and hoovering don’t count do they!
