Less is More #285

Morning friends - do you have that 'Saturday Morning Feeling' today?
Hope so as it's time to play over at Less is More.

It's THEME week and we've chosen 'Repetition'.

Here's my examples and there are loads of fun ideas by my
fellow teamies over on the main Blog HERE so do check them out!

My repetition on those one is 'dots' on the patterned paper from Echo Park,
3 matching flower heads and the leaves on the stem. The stamps are from one
of my favourites WPlus9 - Doodle Buds and I really need to play with this more
frequently as I love it. The sentiment is from the same set, the frame is an 
MFT die - Insert A Frame and to finish a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Now believe it or not ... and it's a first!!! I had already made this card and
purchased the stamp set by Hero Arts before Jennifer McGuire posted her video 
using it earlier this week HERE! I'm now awash with ideas for it but as you can 
see I thought it worked pretty well for repeat stamping. To accent it the 'Smile'
word die is by Lil'Inkers and the 'Have a Great Time' from Clearly Besotted.

Last but not least and using these adorable Pandas by Mama Elephant ...
in fact I have both the Pandamonium and Incoming Mail sets and this
uses the Panda from the latter and the sentiment from the former.
Not sure who I'll sent the card to but love the sentiment!

Ok it's over to you crafty folk and I'm sure you'll come up with some
perfect winners - you always do and it's a joy to check them out on your blogs.

Thanks as always for calling by and catch up with you again soon.



  1. Your cards are absolutely stunning, as always. I love how you use colour so boldly, and create masses of impact with really distinctive layouts and off-setting. Great inspiration, thank you!

  2. Three examples of gorgeousness Sarah, I love the vibrancy of the colours you used in the first one, it really pops!

  4. Always admire your work but that Panda card is the cutest and the cleverest yet x

  5. Fab set of cards, loving the colours in the first x

  6. Your pandas just make me smile. What a fun card.

  7. Gorgeous cards, hun. I love the green/orange combo on your first, and fabulous repeat stamping on card two. How you've managed to do so many whilst preparing for your hollibobs is beyond me! Well done that lady! x

  8. More fab inspiration as always. I need pandas in my life now! Cara x

  9. What a wonderful and sweet trio of cards. Your panda card is my fav!

  10. Awww Sarah,

    What a good chuckle - and sooo adorable. Someone's going to be "tickled" to get this extra special card!

  11. fantastic cards again Sarah! When I first saw the cute pandas I really smiled - that's a brilliant card. Your other two are stunners too with the bright and bold lusciousness of the first and that repeat stamped panel on the second is to die for. Have a great week.

  12. This is such a gorgeous card with those lovely Pandas and what a great sentiment. Love it - would love to know about your CKC Spaniel - we have Welsh Springers but I'm thinking that next time I may have to get a slightly less active spaniel - are they less demanding?

  13. Gorgeous set of cards, the pandas are adorable

  14. Simply lovely, Sarah ... each one ... those panda's are just so sweet ... such a clever design! Hugs, Anita :)

  15. As usual...excellent cards yet again Sarah,that first lime green one is my favourite I think ;)hugs Viv xx
