Less is More #300

Well hello LIMettes!
Can you believe we hit our 300th challenge today at Less is More!
That's one mahoosive achievement and heck of a lot of clean and simple
challenge ideas to come up with in that time! 

So it's a 5 week month and it's lucky dip time!
What's more we have a class-act super talented Guest Designer; it's
Julie B of Crafted by Jules and if you've never visited her blog then
you are most certainly missing a trick! Her cards are so full of unique 
inspiration and I do hope you'll drop by her blog and leave some love.

To commemorate our 300th challenge post we chosen the theme

Celebrations or Festivals

No problem can I hear you shout - loads of ideas out there and
no doubt we can expect a bumper turn out. 

Here's mine ...

Baby celebrations first and I have to admit that my mojo has taken 
a vacation recently without permission I might add so I've been watching
some You Tube videos and checking pinterest for ideas!

For this one I'd watched a tutorial by Julia Altermann of Just One More Card
and you can see it HERE! I decided to go with a heart die by Wplus9 and I
can't think of a more worthy celebration than a new baby. 

This uses:
Mama Elephant: Carnival Cupcakes stamps & dies
Clearly Besotted: Baby Love stamps & dies
Create a Smile: Underwater Love (for the sentiment)
Promarkers for colouring and some sparkling clear sequins by PPP.

... and another slight 'CASE' card - this time by Laura Bassen, shown HERE

This uses: 
MFT Die-Namics: High Rise number dies
Altenew: Painted Greetings
Memory Box: Cosmic Star dies
Distress inks in Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet

I also made a very similar card in a different colour way 

As usual the design team have worked their magic with some fabulous
creations and the links to their blogs can be found on the main 
Less is More blog HERE

As always thanks for calling by my blog today and I'll catch up 
with you again soon!



  1. Well! You've done it again Sarah! I HAVE to have those high rise numbers bank account thanks you so much. Lol. Don't they look amazing in the different colour ways?

  2. Fabulous cards Sarah! As soon as I saw your baby card I loved it. Super design and so incredibly pretty and cute! I'll have to check out that tutorial.
