Less is More - 5th Birthday Celebrations!

Hi guys

We're having a party at Less is More this week as we have reached our 5th Birthday!  Thanks so much for your continued participation, it's because of the fabulous entries we receive each week that we are still going strong with our CAS challenges.

We are continuing with our usual sequence of challenge themes and as we are at the start of a new month we have our regular Colour challenge for you which is...

White on White

We have some fabulous sponsors joining us this week and we have some great prizes up for grabs too.

For my card this week I decided to say thank you to YOU, our lovely participants...I hope you like it :)

Apart from the embossed background, everything here is by Clearly Besotted.  I stamped the flower, the 'you' and 'thank' in Versamark and heat embossed in silver and cut these out with their co-ordinating dies, and the 'thank' onto a strip of white cardstock.  The leaves were stamped and heat embossed in white and also cut with the co-ordinating dies, and the smaller leaves were die cut from white vellum.  For the main panel I used some white embossing paste through a stencil.  I then layered these up, adhered to the panel and then popped it up on 3D foam.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Thank You and Love Quotes II
  • Dies: Clearly Besotted - Thank You, Love Quotes II and Leafy Accents
  • Ink: VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Silver and Opaque Bright White
  • Stencil: Tim Holtz - Dot Fade
  • Embossing Paste: Dreamweaver
  • Vellum from stash

Challenge entries:

The Crafter's Cafe - Challenge #142 - Monochromatic
613 Avenue Create - Challenge #161 - Anything Goes (use something from your stash)
Creative Card Crew - Challenge #105 - Anything Goes
Crafty Cardmakers - Challenge #156 - Punches and/or Dies

We can't wait to see your white on white creations.  And there's lots of inspiration over at the Less is More page too as our sponsors have been creating with us this week too.  So, if you have the time please pop by and show your appreciation, we all love some feedback :)

Bye for now
