Less is More #284

Hi again friends. I don't know about you but our dreaded ONE Layer card weeks
at Less is More seem to come around awfully fast from where I'm standing 
and here we are again with one of THOSE challenges. The theme is 

Time / Clockwork

Just two from me for this week as I was a bit short on time and inspiration but
I'm sure if you pop across to my fellow teamies' blogs there'll be plenty more
magical, fun and unique designs to inspire you!

This one uses a clockwork stencil from Tim Holtz which is inked with
Distress Inks in Blueprint Sketch and Broken China. The sentiment 'thanks'
is from Winnie and Walter with the 'For a lovely time' from Clearly Besotted.
There's a hand-drawn black line to divide the 2 sections of the card and 
a few Doodlebug Sprinkles which cover a little smudge quite nicely. 

It's an Anything Goes week over at Addicted to Stamps and More
so I'd like to pop this one in there.

This one uses the Party Animal set from Avery Elle, with hand-drawn strings, 
the 'celebrate' sentiment is also Avery Elle and the 'Time To' from Clearly Besotted.

Over at Inkspirational they'd like to see Anything Goes with 'Red'
so as I've used pink and red inks for the balloons I'd like to pop this one in there.

That's all from me but hope you have a lot of fun with this one and please
remember to keep it clean and simple plus on ONE layer only.

Thanks for stopping by and catch up again soon.



  1. Awesome cards Sarah! The stencilling is so impactful on the first card, and your second card has showcased the party balloon animals perfectly. I must admit, I hadn't 'got' those stamps before, but seeing them in real life they produce such a fun and distinctive look - brilliant! Please stop enabling me in your posts! :D

  2. Love the dreamy blues on your first card, Sarah and the party animal balloons are just inspired! Two fab creations, as always :) Have a great week x

  3. No doesn't look like you've run out of inspiration to me...Gorgeous and very creative cards and particularly loving the clock one x

  4. Gosh! Fab ink blending on the stencil Sarah in those calming beautiful blues. Then you top that with clean crisp and vibrant party animals - brilliant! (Impeccable stamping by the way). Think that one might just have edged into my favourite.
