Less is More #312

Morning friends, are you ready for this week's challenge at

Less is More

It's our THEME week and we've chosen

New Beginnings

I have to admit I was struggling with ideas and mojo this week and everything
I tried didn't quite work and ended up in the 'you know where'! So pretty
basic examples here but I'm sure if you skip across to the main blog HERE 
my fellow teamies haven't let you down and as ever their cards are simply
oozing with classy and elegant designs.

I fancied making a distressed sky using purples and pinks and I 
quite like how it turned our with a little spritz of perfect pearls for added
interest and sparkle. I've used a border die by Clearly Besotted along
with sentiments from their 'Home Sweet Home' set too.

Next up a couple of Baby congrats cards for my 'good to have in' box!
These use the Just Hatched set from Mama Elephant and design paperby Lawn Fawn.

Hope you'll play along and have some fun.
Thanks for calling by and I'll be back soon!



  1. Nothing basic about these, I love them all! Your blended sky is fabulous, and of course your sparkle splatters look awesome as always. And those baby cards are so sweet, so crisp, clean, cute and look at all that lovely white space! Rocked it again this week, teamie! xx

  2. Well if that is basic, goodness help the rest of us Sarah!! They are all incredibly beautiful. Love the atmospheric sky on your first card and it is so wonderful to see the the houses in white instead of black. As for the baby cards...I may need to case those! The spots and stripes papers are glorious with those oh-so-sweet images. Cuteness overload alert - but how perfect for a baby card. xx

  3. Very sweet chick-a-dee cards Sarah! And the blended sky card is also wonderful xx

  4. These are fab Sarah, not basic at all! The ink blended sky looks amazing, so atmospheric, and I love the little houses. Your new baby cards are adorable!!! Those chicks <3 Gorgeous! Have a lovely weekend x

  5. I totally love these, Sarah - they are gorgeous! The inked sky on the first card is perfect and I am definitely going to get those Mama Elephant stamps as they are so cute. CAS and clever cardmaking :)

  6. Such sweet cards...your ink sponging is just perfect on your first card. And, of course, that little chick is just the cutest thing ever! Terrific inspiration!

  7. Love both styles here, that new home with the wonderful sky line , brilliant. And so clean and sweet looking those baby cards are.

  8. I like the black strip you used on the house card. I have this die and struggle of how to use it. And I adore your sweet baby card. I have one to do and boy do I struggle with these x

  9. Love both of your cards, Sarah... that sky in the new home card is FANTASTIC!!! Simple and wonderful. Love the black strip and the sentiment is just so perfect. Love the baby cards too, and the strip of diagonal stripes on the left.

  10. Very beautiful cards Sarah ! I really love your gorgeous distress sky with these colours ! And I love the CAS design you use to present these two houses ! And these two chicks are so cute ! Thanks so much for sharing !
