Less is More #272

Morning friends it's that time again ... are you wide awake?
It's a Theme week challenge at Less is More and we'd like you to

USE 3 STAMPS (this can be 3 individual ones or the same 3 multiple times)

Here's my examples and as always there's plenty more inspiration over on 
the main blog HERE from my fellow teamies and if you hop across to 
their personal blogs there's more info and possibly a few extras!

3 stamps here are Honey Doo Crafts Flowers for Design (stem & blooms)
plus a sentiment from WPlus9 Doodle buds. 

This one uses a 3-step stamp from Altenew: Painted Butterflies
with an inlaid die-cut 'Hello' from Paper Smooches.

I've gone ultra CAS even for me here using a couple of newbies
to my stash ... Sending and Hugs sentiments from Avery Elle Sentimental
plus the floral bloom is from Newton's Nook Fancy floral.

The codeword over at CAS-ology this week is PINK so I'm heading
over there with this one.

Ok that's all for now and I'm looking forward to checking out your
creative ideas later in the week. In the meantime thanks for calling by 
and I'll be back shortly with the details of our latest challenge ATCAS.



  1. Love the wonderfully zingy colours of your cards! Fab inspiration x

  2. Another fab trio of cards! Love the Honey Doo flowers and the beautiful blues on your first card. The 3 step Altenew butterfly is a clever twist on the theme and I love the way the sentiment flows in to the flower on your last card too. So many cards to enjoy on a Saturday morning! Have a great weekend x

  3. These are great! The Honey Doo blooms are gorgeous and the stitched border is a great finishing touch. So creative to use a 3 step stamp on the second card - I wouldn't have thought of that - and the inlaid die and soft blues are so beautiful. The pink background and enamel dots of the third card set off the stamping so well. Fantastic cards!

  4. Stunning cards, Sarah. I am especially loving the blues xx

  5. Beautiful cards, Sarah! I love the bright pink panel for the CASology card - thanks for playing along with the challenge this week!

  6. Sarah, you did it again! I am blown away with your beautiful creations!
    There is something special about every card! A pro in action!
    Loving your pink creation for Casology this week! Gorgeous!

  7. Love your pretty blue card. Great inspiration!

  8. 3 Wonderful cards Sarah !

  9. That's 3 big WOWs from me!! A triple treat. Gosh, I love visiting your gallery! The calming hues of the first two blues certainly sets the scene for the punchy pink one. LOVE how you have inverted the colours, creating a smashing pink background for some black silhouetted blooms. So great that you could join us at CASology this week, Sarah!

  10. Fabulous cards Sarah. I love Honeydoo stamps, I've a few in my collection but yet to use them. The Altenew stamps are very tempting too.

  11. Three gorgeous cards and great inspiration. Karen x

  12. Love your cards, the blues are so pretty :)

  13. These are gorgeous Sarah, I love that Altenew butterfly, it has such fabulous movement... another for the wish list!

  14. Oh my! Love how those flowers pop on your first card Sarah! You definitely got 3 'Ooohs' and 'Ahhhs' from my. Such gorgeous clean elegance and so inspirational.

  16. Hi Sazzle Dazzle, Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog. I'm not sure I followed the Less Is More challenge correctly, which is why I took it off my post. However, I was inspired by the challenge & my link is still up (despite my leaving a comment) so I've put the link back up on my post. Thanks again, CG

  17. Beautifully cards Sarah, lovely designs with super colours.........I love the stunning flowers and the lovely butterflies, the pink and pretty flower are stunning!!

  19. Pretty trio of lovely cards, and I'm especially taken with #1. Love the glow of the flowers against the matte blue background, and a great die cut to show off the rectangle shape. TFS

  20. Here I am, only a week late! lol
    Loving these, teamie, so vibrant. Love those Honey Doo flowers in blue. Your last is my favourite though, love the black and pink and the swishy hugs, just my kind of card xx
