Less is More #318

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

Less is More

After all those birthday shenanigans last month, sadly we are back to our normal routine. 
The first week of the month signals the return of our COLOUR challenge and
we welcome back our very generous sponsor: Dies to Die For

Here's mine and there's loads of fabulous designs from my fellow teamies
over on the main blog HERE with links to their own blogs.
Do check them out and pay them a visit if you've time - they'd love it!

I simply can't get enough of this stunning foliage heart from the newest sets from Uniko 
(Originally Organics Additions) which was released last weekend. I've coloured the 
image with Promarkers and used silver embossed hearts and 'congratulations' sentiment by Uniko. 
The 'Mr & Mrs' is by CBS and I've used a stitched basic border die from MFT Die-Namics

Teal has to be one of my favourite colours EVER so I've a second card for you; 
using a die by Tim Holtz / Sizzix Mixed Media. Behind the die-cut I've inky blended 
distress inks in various teal shades then popped both panels on 3d fun foam for extra dimension.
The sentiment is by Altenew and I've rounded one corner of both my panel and card base.

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



  1. Beautiful cards, teal is a stunning colour. Love it nearly as much as my most commonly used pink and orsnge. The stamping on your first card, beautiful and soft and the partial die cut, wonderful.

  2. oooh, I would never have thought of using that foliage heart in teal but it looks fabulous - particularly with the silver hearts! I love the mixed media die with the inky teals behind it. Two fabulous makes, as always. Looking forward to tomorrow :)

  3. This colour is so beautiful and love it against he clean white. Both cards are so delicate and perfect layouts. Thank you for sharing these beauties x

  4. Wow, love that heart wreath. The splash of silver is just beautiful!

  5. Swoon! Such an impressive treatment on the foliage heart Sarah, and adding the silver embossed hearts was a stroke of genius. It just oozes super-sophisticated elegance. Then you go and get all arty with that gorgeous background on the the second card. Loving the new die cut too. xx

  6. I LOVE how you used the heart wreath Sarah! The whole card is filled with stylish touches like the darker card panel, the silver hearts and the very elegant Mr & Mrs sentiment. Beautiful! Your partial die cut background on the second card and gorgeous ink blending peeping through is stunning and looking so artistic. Fab idea to round one corner of each layer! Have a good day x

  7. Two simply beautiful cards! I was excited to see the first one with the Uniko set as I bought it too - I'll be delighted if I can use it to such stunning effect.
    Thanks for your lovely comments on my card they really are appreciated.

  8. Wow....what a gorgeous pair cards! Love that beautiful blue and your wonderful designs!

  9. Great minds with the corner dies, eh! ;) Love the simple blended panel with the rounded corner. And wow, that Uniko stamp looks awesome in those colours, loving the silver with it too. And the deep teal at the bottom is so classy xx

  10. So interesting designs Sarah, gorgeous cards.

    Love and hugs

  11. Very beautiful cards Sarah ! Both of them ! This teal colour is definitely made to be mixed with white ! This combo colour is so gorgeous and so peaceful ! I love your die cut panel with this teal blending background ! So gorgeous ! Thanks for sharing and for inspiring.
