Less is More #290

Morning friends, time to announce this week's challenge over at 

Less is More
It's theme week and we've chosen the word Exotic

This one uses a Paper Smooches set called Get Outta Town.
The images are coloured with Promarkers and I've used a 
frame die from Pretty Pink Posh then 're-sat' the 'piccys' inside
again once coloured and popped it up on fun foam for added dimension.

I'd like to pop this one in at Addicted to Stamps and More where
it's the 'Make Your Mark' Week

Our Current Challenge

I couldn't resist creating a creating a card using this fantastic
'Paradise' set from Uniko and if Paradise isn't exotic then I'm stuck!
(Looks like Sarah G and Sharon also had the same idea!)

I decided to show-case the sentiment and keep that panel clean and simple
with the exotic hibiscus blooms in the background.

My teamies have been up to their usual brilliance so please head over 
to the Less is More blog HERE where there's links to their blogs 
and you can swoon with delight at their creations.

Hope you feel inspired to play along and I'll catch up with you soon.



  1. Love these - very exotic stamps and colours! X

  2. I love the colouring of your little piccys, so colourful and great blending too. I still haven't inked up my Paradise set yet and you lot beat me to it! lol xx

  3. You do such beautiful colouring! The first one is so gorgeous with the framed images set against the clean stamped background, and the second one is really impactful with that lovely Paradise set against the crisp white panel. Super cards! x

  4. Two absolutely beauties. Love the fun tropical drinks in your first card and the second shouts paradise. Perfection!

  5. Stunning first card, love the colours, the fabulous layout and the clever idea. Love how the flowers have been left uncoloured on the background, fun colouring and perfect sentiment. The second card is spot on for the theme. Thank you for the inspiration on both of your gorgeous cards x

  6. Perfect colouring on your first card and the second one is so pretty. Love them

  7. Two beauties here, lovely colours and have such fun feel to them. Well done on this wonderful design. xx

  8. WOW! Hats off to you Sarah because you rocked the challenge. That first card is incredible with the gorgeous colouring and wonderfully vibrant colours.... How do you get your cards so wonderfully vibrant? (Well jel of that talent) And the sheer beauty of the delicate hibiscus flower has been captured in your second card. So sorry I beat you to using the toucan....but I did buy that stamp set especially with this challenge theme in mind so actually, I'm not that sorry really. Ha ha! Have a great week.
