Less is More #370

Hello my crafty friends, it's Sketch Time over at Less is More for the next fortnight and we can't wait to see what you do with this one! All the details are on the main challenge blog HERE but here's the cue card followed by the Sketch and my examples. 




If you've followed my blog recently you'll notice I've become a little 'hooked' on stencils, especially in this colour combo of Distress Oxides: Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet and Cracked Pistachio. I've used the Concentric Circles Stencil from MFT with a little masking around the circles and to finish a popped up sentiment from our sponsor; Happy Little Stampers. 


It's a clean and simple week over at Addicted to Stamps and More so I'd like to head across there with this one AND as I'm 'WILD' about stencils right now and that's the theme of the current challenge at Timeout Challenges I'd like to add this card there too. 






... and another MFT stencil below! This time the Rose Builder, again inked with Distress Oxides in Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple plus Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover. I must apologise I can't remember where the sentiment is from! It's from my bits box from one of those days when I'd heat embossed too many sentiments! 


Over at Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge it's their Anything Goes week so I'll pop this card in there.

As always there's loads of fabulous designs from my fellow teamies  over on the Less is More blog HERE and our sponsor for this challenge is Happy Little Stampers so do play along for a chance of a prize, which we'll announce at the start of next month.

I hope you'll feel inspired to play along with us and have some crafty fun along the way.

Thanks for calling by today!

  11. I'm loving all your stencil cards, always so classy and you 'do' colour so well. Those circles look fab masked the way you have, and perfect with those enamel dots. And I've not seen that MFT stencil (off she goes to investigate!), love the blend of colours, so pretty xx

  12. Sorry for my late comment, Sarah ! Is the name, Sarah, has something to see with gorgeous stencilled cards ? Love all the cards you've done recently with stencils and you always find so beautiful combos of colours. These two cards are no exception ! I love your two roses but of course my favourite one is the first one with this gradient of blues, so beautiful ! I love DOx, they are so easy to use with stencils and they blend so beautifully ! Have a great week. Hugs x

  13. Your first card feels fresh and youthful, and also gender neutral, I love having cards in this category on hand for any last minute needs. The flower card is feminine and stylish.
