Less is More #362

Happy New Year Crafty Pals, I hope you are all well and enjoying 2018 so far.

I can't believe this is my first post since 23rd December ... here's me thinking I'd have been crafting and blogging non-stop over the festive period but other fun stuff got in the way!!!

Anyway I'm here to announce our latest challenge at Less is More and we are moving to a 2-weekly format from today, in the hope that it'll free up some extra time for the LIMettes and DT alike. All the details can be found on the main blog so I'll get straight down to sharing the Cue Card for our first challenge of the year! 


Surprisingly I've managed cards for you today, despite the festive fun!!! Each one featuring purples, of course and using the delicious Altenew range of inks.


This one uses the Painted Butterfly set from Altenew with a sentiment from Clearly Besotted; Brushed Greetings.


Next up another Altenew set, this time it's Beautiful Day combined with an inlaid die-cut 'happy' sentiment from STAMPlorations and the 'New Year' sentiment from Happy Little Stampers.

I'd like to link this one up at Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where's it's 'Something New' so I'm going with the new Year!


... and last but not least here's the card featured over at Less is More and it uses the Bold Blooms set by My Favorite Things and a sentiment also by MFT. 

As always there's loads of fabulous designs from my fellow teamies over on the main blog HERE and we've a brand new sponsor for 2018, it's Skull and Cross Buns for this month so do play along for a chance of a prize, which we announce at the start of next month.


I hope you'll play along and have some fun - you might even like to join us more than once this fortnight! Thanks for calling by and catch up with you soon.

  7. Three beautiful purple creations, Sarah! I do love Altenew inks... they take the guess work out of stamp layering. You’ve stamped these perfectly. The simple design is stylish and impactful. I keep eyeing that Painted Butterfly set and every time I see you use it, I kick myself for not getting it already. 😂 Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a wonderful week. xx

  12. WOW ! There are all three so beautiful and your purple is so crisp and yummy ! You make me want to buy those Altenew purple inks ! As always your design are a CAS delight ! Impossible to say which one I prefer since they are all stunning...may be the third one because it's a stamp set I've never seen before. I love the scored lines you've made to give dimension between the flowers ! Wow, you really rock for this first post of 2018 ! Have a fabulous week. Hugs xx

  13. I'm being a late visitor but better late than never! :) You did great with your purple cards -the area ll so perfectly executed, feminine and pretty! I especially love your third card with the silver details -silver and purple seem to go super well together, I'd never thought of that! Perfect layered stamping with your Altenew flowers and the layout with the butterflies in your first card has beautiful flow. I hope you are well, hugs! xxx
