ON OR OVER THE EDGE

Morning All

Hope your are ready to put those crafty mits into action for a new Less is More challenge. 

It's the One Layer Card week with an 'Off the Edge' theme.

First up I'm in a fussy cut mood using my 'go to' stamp set for gorgeous florals; 
Beautiful Blooms from Uniko Studio; I use it loads.
 The inspiration for my card came from the stunningly colourful floral picture 
inspiration at Fusion Challenge so I'll be heading over there shortly. 




I started by stamping the beautiful bloom in different summer colours and masking as I went along then fussy cut the edges to give them an 'off the edge' look. I've added a brand new Clearly Besotted sentiment from the newly released Sweet Little Sentiments set and to finish off some colour-coordinated pearls from Doodlebug.

Next up is a simpler off the edge card and I love the combination of black, 
white and shocking pink together so it's 'black' space for me this week!

Firstly I've heat embossed my Hobbycraft Butterfly stamp and a sentiment from 
Clearly Besotted Fabulous Fuchsias with white embossing powder.
 The butterfly is just 'tipped' off the edge. 
To finish I've added polka dot ribbon, rhinestone gems, doodlebug sprinkles and 
a good old twinkling of Wink of Stella.

I'm also entering this one at Addicted to Stamps and More where 
it's a Clean and Simple week


Ok it's over to you and I'm looking forward to seeing all your 
fantastic creations during the week.
Have a fun weekend.

  3. Fabulous cards, Sarah! I made a similar card to your Off The Edge card a while ago so I admire your patience to cut that out! And I love your placement of the Doodlebug pearls. My bedroom used to be black, white and shocking pink, such a lovely combo. Love your black card base, I must stop reaching for white all the time! Hugs xx
