I thought I was time I played along with some challenges, and I thought that I would start off with Less is More, I always find that this challenge does exactly that, challenge me. I don't find simply cards very easy at all, I always want to add something else. I needed to make my boyfriends Valentines card and he is a 'Less is More' kinda guy so I thought the sketch would be perfect.
I pulled out my I (heart) hearts stamp set and a manly Marina Mist ink pad, and start stamping. I cut a section from my stamped page and layered it onto a Crumb Cake base. I scored a line either side of the stamped panel, and couldn't resist adding a tiny piece of ribbon.
The next card I made was inspired by this months muse over at CASE study another CAS card, here is the card we had to work with,
and I took my colour inspiration from the Play Date Cafe, aren't these colours gorgeously sumptuous!
Very clean and simple, I'm definitely challenging myself today! Here is my take,
The sentiment is from For Everything, it jumped out at me because there were gaps that I could fill in with the same colours I used for stamping the the lower half of the card, The diamond border is from the retired set Plane and Simple, stamped in Perfect Plum, Daffodil Delight, and Island Indigo.
I really enjoyed making these simple cards, I hope you enjoy looking at them.
Don't forget a new colour challenge was set yesterday over at Simply Stampin', I'd love to see what you can do with the colours!
Happy Crafting, xx
