Less is More Challenge #207

Morning all and how quickly are we back around to Saturday!
So it's that time again ... a new challenge at 

Less is More

It's a theme week too - Friends - so loads of options
just remember to keep it clean and simple.

Now if you follow my blog regularly then you'll notice 
that yesterday I posted details of the latest challenge at
Uniko Studio here where the theme is very similar: Love & Friendship.
So no pressure blog buddies but I'd be more than happy to see your 
cards there too. We've some new rules this year too so you don't 
even need to use Uniko products ... so what are you waiting for.

Anyway onto my cards for Less is More and apologies for
my photos this week ... the light is pretty dismal in the UK right now
but some very late night photography produced these!

First up featuring a brand new stamp set (to me) from Uniko Studio
 it's the All Occasion Sentiments #3 
inked in gold Delicata then heat embossed with clear EP.
Other supplies:
Clearly Besotted: Diagonal stripes & Pretty Petals Plus stamps
Mama Elephant: Index card dies

This one is a little crazy but thought it would work for several occasions
so no 'real' sentiment as I'll add it inside.
Supplies Used:
The Alley Way Stamps: Face-it
Uniko Studio: All Occasion Sentiments #3
Glitter markers, Derwent coloursoft pencils and glossy accents for added interest

I'm going to link this one up at a couple of challenges too:

Simon Says Stamp: It's a Guy Thing
 (I'm sure this would be suitable for our men folk)

Supplies used here:
Clearly Besotted: Birch Trees Stamps
Paired Up stamps & dies
Scalloped Border Dies
WPlus9: Fanciful Feathers sentiment stamp
MFT Die-namics: Stitched rectangles

Once again if you follow my blog you may notice I've
had a couple of fabulous challenge wins / honours this week
and one of them was Muse Card Challenge.

I was so excited and thrilled to be voted top as I find this 
challenge in particular a REAL challenge so this card
is to enter the latest one there - not that I'm hedging my bets at all!

Supplies used:
Distress Inks: Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry & Spiced Marmalade
Sentiment: Clearly Besotted - Say it In Style
Beautiful Blooms die from Uniko Studio
Wooden patterned button from my stash

Well I hope you are still with me after this long post.
Thanks as always for stopping by and I'm handing the 
baton to you now. Can't wait to see your inspirational makes.

Have fun and see you soon.

  6. Another great selection of cards! I was pleased to see that the LIM theme works well with Uniko this week :) Love the Delicta gold sentiment on your first, the fun faces on the second and the elegant look of the third card. Your inking on the Muse card is flawless too. I don't know where you find the time :)

  7. A great selection of cards Sarah, you really are on a roll girl.
    Congrats on the Muse and Time Out wins, loved the Muse entry.
    Not sure which of the current one's I like most, they are all fab for different reasons. :)

  9. Love the button in the centre of your gorgeously inked flower! So glad you joined us at Muse this week!

  10. Oh Sarah... I adore that flower negative - which shouldn't work really, but OH does it work splendidly here ... happy to see other examples of your talents while stopping by. The LIM theme has me singing another card! Thanks for playing cards with us again this week...
