Less is More #347

Morning friends!

Saturday is back and time for another challenge over at Less is More! What's more it's SKETCH time and I can't wait to see how you play along with this one. 

Here's the cue card and sketch followed by my 2 examples on a Christmas theme for you ... looks like fellow teamie, Anita and I had the same idea! I, for one, need to up my game in Christmas card -making department!


and here's the sketch ...



First up using a wonderful ornament die by Simon Says Stamp from a destash sale by the lovely Laura Sterckx of Making Cards is Fun I die-cut the ornaments in 3 shades of foiled cardstock before adhering them to white cardstock. 2 of them are mounted directly onto the 'wonky-stitched' die-cut panel with the middle one mounted on 3d foam. the sentiment is by this month's sponsor ... Happy Little Stampers. The silver 'strings' are hand drawn with a gelly roll pen and I've added a couple of clear gems for some extra sparkle. 


This one uses another Christmas sentiment by Happy Little Stampers with a layered stamp set by Altenew: Bows and Bells. Again hand-drawn strings but with a black copic marker this time and little gems in the centre of the bows. 




As always there's loads of 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, have some fun and thanks for calling by

  2. Two gorgeous cards Sarah ! Love the foiled die cuts on the first card, they add a gorgeous shine on this big white space. Your second one is also very beautiful, I love the colours up to the little diamond touch on the bows ! He, he, is it the race for the end of year's cards ? I took some time to make my cards and I also thought about Christmas ornaments but I saw your bells card and Anita's ornaments one I change my mind. I really love yours, thanks for the beautiful inspiration ! Have a wonderful weekend and a fabulous week ! xx

  8. Ooooh! Swooning over those bells and baubles Sarah! Wonderful glossy and metallic look to the first card and the wonky stitched border looks brilliant. But, my heart was stolen with the pink bells - they are drop-dead gorgeous. Lovely crisp lines to complement the soft ink colour on that card. Just fabulous!
