Less Is More #242

Morning crafty pals it's time for a new challenge over at 

and it's theme week - Technology is the theme we've chosen!
Crumbs! Don't ask me why ... there's been a lot of head scratching 
and stress in my craft room and the other DT too I think!

I decided to go with 'tech' speak - it's all the rage!!!! 
Like I know! Anyway according to tweets my kids type
it's 'hash-tag this / hash-tag that' and as my daughter needs an
18th card this weekend I decided to combine the two!

Mama Elephant Landscape Trio dies and Index Card set came in handy especially
as the latter includes a # die! After die-cutting the stitched rectangle I split the panel into 
4 using a snow-drift border die. I inked up some cardstock using the same inks 
as the sentiments to die-cut 3 hash-tags. The sentiments are from Uniko - 
All Occasion Sentiments with 'smile' and 'celebrate' from the 
brand new set being released today. 
The '18' is die-cut using Avery Elle - Count on Us dies and is die-cut 3 times 
for added dimension. To finish a few sparkly gems 

It's 'die-crazy' over at Simon Says Stamp this week so I'd like
to head over there with this card too

Next up I couldn't resist going with the mobile phone!

Using the 'Text me' set from Clearly Besotted I've gone icon crazy
all over the screen, added some mini headphones and a techi text sentiment
all from the same set! The speech bubble is from WPlus9 and to finish some 
Doodlebug Sprinkles and co-ordinating design paper which I found after the
stamping and it happened to match pretty well with all the little images.

I hope you'll pop over to check out what the other DT members 
have created - you won't be disappointed and I hope you enjoy the challenge.

I'll be back shortly with the full reveal, release and blog hop of the latest 
stamp sets from Uniko so hope you'll stop by then.

Happy crafting!
