Less is More #270

Morning friends can you believe it's Saturday AGAIN?
Hey where did that week go? Phew think I must have blinked too hard!

Anyway I'm here with the latest challenge for Less is More and it's our 
Colour week. We are looking for 'White' Space as always but NOT White.

Hope that makes sense but here's my cards and there's plenty more 
fantastic inspiration from my fellow teamies over on the main blog 
PLUS we've another guest designer sharing the stage with us this week.

Liz of Crafty Sunflower and I'm sure you'll have visited her blog before 
but if not please head across to view her fantastic cards and leave some love!

First up using lilac as my 'white space' with the Doodled Flowers set from 
Happy Little Stampers; heat embossed with white EP then coloured 
with my Derwent Coloursoft pencils. The sentiment is from the same set and 
I've used an MFT Die-Namics basic stitched die to create some interest to the 
sentiment panel. To finish some glossy accents and wink of stella to the bloom centres.

I'd like to link this one up at Happy Little Stampers - Anything Goes when
using their stamps - obviously! Plus it's Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp
Wednesday Challenge so I'm skipping over there too with this one.

Next up using Orange as my 'white' space and the Cute as a Bug from Clearly Besotted 
with a sentiment from the Say it in Style set. The images are coloured with my Zig 
Clear Brush pens and I've added some glossies and wink of stella for added interest 
plus some coordinating enamel sprinkles from Doodlebug.

I hope you feel inspired to play along with us and I can't wait to see
how you take this one. Thanks as always for stopping by and hope 
you have some fun and crafty playtime this weekend.



  1. V cheering cards - on a v wet & drizzling weekend! Lovely and bright. May have to have a go at this challenge x

  2. Wow your on a roll, love these two cards. Aren't the white spaces brilliant colours. Wonderful

  3. These are so funky Sarah! I adored the lilac card when I first saw it but my goodness, you have blown me away with that incredible orange one. Such a cute image too (I find it hard to do CAS and cute).

  4. Two super cards, Sarah. I love how you've added the stitched curve to the top one and the flowers are really lovely. I don't use orange on my cards very often, but the way you've teamed it with the black on the second card is so striking. Love the image too. xx

  5. Beautiful cards. I liked the second card for it's layout and cute little snail

  6. Two gorgeous cards Sarah!

  7. Fun challenge & loving your cards. I especially like the second the colours are so bright and cheerful and the image so cute on this dull and rainy day! Hugs Bev x

  8. I love how you always come up with an interesting shape to your cards - my brain only seems to think in circles and rectangles! :p Your cards are both gorgeous. The lilac card is stunning with the background colour and striking flower shapes, and the snail is adorable (plus I need some enamel sprinkles in my life!)
    By the way, the link here from LIM is broken and returns an error message.

  9. You know a love a touch of purple whatever the shade and your first card with the doodle flowers is a great design, hope I get to play x

  10. These are awesome Sarah, that second one is a real smasher, the colour is SO vibrant and cheery and made to pop with the black accents!

  11. I love the purple/lilac design on your first card - you are making great designs with those doodled flowers! The zig colouring is fabulous too. Fun and fresh designs as always!

  12. These cards are fantastic. Great inspiration for the challenge!

  13. Both cards so very bold and vibrant. A really lovely change to see CAS cards with 'another' colour background and yet keeping it CAS. Such a cute and adorable second card with a fabulous colour combination. Loving those doodle flower stamps and what you are creating with them x

  14. What gorgeous cards! The first card is so sweet and feminine and the second card is just adorable!

  15. Great designs, really beuatiful cads,
    Sarita x

  17. I'm in love with your lilac card and your orange card is pretty adorable too. Karen x

  18. Oh my they are both stunning the first really jumped out at me in the gallery so so pretty and such a lovely design. Orange I love orange especially when it is offset with black this is fabulous.


  19. Sarah! Every time I see you use my Doodled Flowers, I can't stop smiling and my heart swells. I LOVE the lilac!! xx

  20. Two stunners Sarah, I do love that lilac, cool and classy.

  21. Love your chosen shade of purple for your first card Sarah but the vibrancy of the orange against the black on the second one and that cute image makes this one a hands-down favourite this week!

  22. Great cards, love the colours on both but love the vibrant orange and very cute image. :-)

  23. Both cards are gorgeous, but that orange one is just what is needed on a gray windy day!
