Less is More #247

Morning friends it's that time and yet again another
week has zipped by in a flash with hardly any crafting achieved.
Hubby kindly put some new shelves up in my craft room so I've
been trying to sort my stash and organise it better this week!

So it's sketch time over at Less is More, fairly straightforward
when first looking at it but still had me scratching my head!

Anyway here's my first card followed by the sketch ...

I started out by die-cutting the smallest snowflake die from 
the Uniko Studio Snowflake trio dies then adhered them to my 
card base. Using MFT Die-namics fishtail flags I've die-cut a 
narrow flag, with a die-cut 'happy' word die from Hero Art and a 
'Christmas' sentiment from Uniko: Simply Said Christmas.
It looked a bit bland for the festive season so I added mini gems 
for a bit of Christmas cheer and sparkle!

Here's the sketch and I've a few more examples below

Christmas again, this time using Clearly Besotted: Rockin Robin stamps,
it's basically a one layer card but decided to add the red off-set panel
for added interest along with some wink of stella and glossy accents.

... and these next two feature a negative and positive of the same panel.
Both use Uniko Studio: Pure Florals - Cosmos heat embossed
in WOW metallic pale gold. The first one uses a die-cut 'you' sentiment 
from WPlus 9 and 'Thank' sentiment from Clearly Besotted: Simply Quilled.
The 'missing' panel is die-cut using 2 snowdrift border dies from
MFT Die-namics

looking at the 'blank' panel in these photos now on screen it doesn't appear 
to be from the same panel - just shows what a difference a change of day / 
time / backdrop and perhaps exposure can make!

Ok limettes, it's over to you and I can't wait to see how you
are inspired by the sketch! If you'd like to see some more examples
please head across to the Less is More blog HERE where my
teamies have some super impressive designs.

Thanks as always for calling by and I'll be back in an hour with a new 
challenge over at Addicted to CAS so hope to see you then.



  1. Great combination of looks for the sketch this week, Sarah! I love how you have used the positive and negative of that die cut panel with the cosmos - very cool. The robins do make me laugh and I love the white on white snowflakes with just a touch of bling. I don't like sketches but may just have to give this a go :)

  2. Wow amazing cards yet again here Sarah, loving the pink and black one esp ;) Viv xx

  3. Such a gorgeous collection of cards, Sarah! You've done a really amazing job with this sketch...WOW!

  4. Fabulous vibrant colours...even on the white card. So clever and creative. So very different ideas from the one sketch. The robins made me smile too x

  5. Great sketch and cards xx Jan

  6. These are all amazing, I like the gold with those colors :) so so so stunning :)

  7. Beautiful set of cards. Love the drama of the last 2 and the fun of the second but, you know my CAS loving Heart, adores the first one ( wow the weekend is a DT loaded one for you!)

  8. Absolutely fabulous cards Sarah, I love the last two permutations and the little robins are the cutest!
