Less is More #346

Morning friends!

At the start of this week I never imagined the possibility of one card for this week's challenge at Less is More let alone 2! It's been one crazy, busy and stressful week and I'm not sure these are great examples for the theme but do head over to visit my fellow teamies who I'm sure will have you swooning at their gorgeous ideas!

Here's the Cue Card for the week and hopefully you'll find it simple enough ...

It's a 'his n hers' TWO-fer from me today both using the newly released Background Block Scattered dots stamp from Uniko. The first one shows it heat-embossed in white on black cardstock ... I'm hoping it gives the impression of lots of stars in space!!! 

I grabbed stash from whatever first came into my head for speed and it's the Blast Off II set from Clearly Besotted on the first one with a little artistic licence for the colours of the rocket and flame ... I obviously haven't got the blue and green colours out of my head from 2 weeks ago! 

For this one I've inked the same background block stamp in Tuxedo Black by Memento adding a die-cut butterfly by Happy Little Stampers (our sponsor) with sentiments from Hero Arts Cut and Stamp Happy set. There's wink of stella added to both of these cards but not particularly visible in the photo and a couple of gems on the 'female' version for added bling!

Don't forget to check out the fabulous designs from my fellow teamies over on the main blog HERE and our sponsor for this month is Happy Little Stampers so do play along for a chance of a prize, which we announce at the start of next month.

Hope you'll play along and have some fun and thanks for calling by 



  1. You have done an amazing job as always Sarah - particularly given all of the other demands on your time at the moment! I love that fun rocket against the night sky and it is fab to see the same background used as an elegant backdrop to your beautifully coloured butterfly. I hope you have some time to yourself this weekend x

  2. Two super cards despite being pressed for time this week Sarah! The space one is just such fun and perfect for both boys and men, and yes, the background really does give the impression of stars. Your feminine version is so very pretty too. A great two-fer! Hope you have a good week this week. xx

  3. Two wonderful cards, Sarah! I hope you'll get some rest during the weekend. My week has been crazy too so I understand what you mean by being amazed having two cards in the LIM post! :) I love your use of this background stamp and you've showed us amazingly how versatile it is for various card styles. Great work!

  4. Such terrific cards...I love how you showed the same background each with completely different vibe. Love them!

  5. Impressive, Sarah! Even with your busy schedule, you gave us two fabulous cards (as always). Love the two different looks of the background with one stamp. A blue and green rocket... why not? Love these. Have a wonderful weekend and week. Trina xx

  6. WOW ! Despite the lack of time you are offering us two gorgeous cards Sarah ! And I confirm, your dotted sky do give the impression of lots of stars in space ! Your rocket is so fun with these colours, a great masculine birthday card ! And I also love this elegant second card with this majestic blue butterfly ! A fabulous showcase for the Uniko Scattered dots stamp ! Hope this coming week will be more relaxing for you ! Have a wonderful Sunday and a great (calm) week ! Hugs xx

  7. Two fabulous cards, wasn't the rocket in Button Moon that colour! Amazing how the dots look totally different on the two cards x

  8. You never fail to amaze me with how quickly you put together so many cards each week. And what a great way to use those dots on this simple layout. Perfect for absolutely any type of card, you've nailed it once again teamie! xx

  9. LOVE how you have used the Background Block Scattered Polka Dots as a starry backdrop and it compliments the butterfly perfectly too. Wonderful cards and showcase of this Uniko stamp. Thank you & Hugs Bev x
