One card for three challenges. The challenge at Less Is More is to create a card using die cuts, I followed the great sketch at Seize The Sketch for my LO and used the Garden Party challenge at Catered Crop to complete this card.
The fun challenge this week at Less is More is to create a card with 'flowers'. The design should have lots of white space, few layers and minimal embellishments. The cue card for CASology this week is 'FLOWER' and Ann from The Paper Players is challenging everyone to create a CAS floral card.
This Card was chosen as the A+ Winner at "Seize the Sketch"
Lesley has designed a great sketch for the Seize the Sketch challenge this week. Welcome to the new members of the DT, all the newbies have well known names and faces in the blogosphere. Looking forward to seeing their wonderful and inspirational cards. This card uses the lovely color palette from the ColourQ challenge.
The stamps are from Flourishes, the stencil from MFT and the embossing folder is Stampin Up. The compass was fussy cut from the map stamp. I rotated the sketch to accommodate this masculine themed card.
This week the Virginia's View Challenge is to create something with stitching. When you have some clothing that needs to be stitched it is hard to justify stitching on paper when there are clothes to sew. But....sewing on paper is definitely more creative. lol
Real and faux stitching were used on this card. Wish I could 'faux' stitch the clothes that are in need of repair! lol
I am really enjoying these one layer cards. There was a time when I would cringe at the thoughts of making a card with only one layer.....but not now!! I think this type of card is a REALLY difficult challenge bit if it was easy it wouldn't be called a challenge! The Less is More challenge is to create a one layer 'Thank You' card and the One Layer Simplicity challenge for May is all about 'Flowers'. I combined the two.
I really love tulips but I wish they would last longer.
The challenge at Less is More this week is to create a card using 'three shades' of one color or three colors.
A fun CAS card to create. The three tiny purple heart shaped rhinestones are from a 'fingernail set' that I purchased at the Dollar Store. It contained many tiny different colored rhinestones and a tiny bottle of clear nail polish.
Well according to the calendar it is 'Spring' and has been here for about 3 weeks....someone forgot to tell Mother Nature....it is overcast, rainy and a mere 40 degrees! In order to bring a little 'spring' to my Butterfly Garden, I decided to make a card using both the Colour Q Challenge and the Retro Sketch Challenge for inspiration.
What makes you smile? Warm tropical breezes, blue skies, sandy beaches, and the sounds of the surf rolling onto the shore....now that makes me smile! The challenge at Less is More this week is to create a card that makes you 'smile' :-).
After this brutal winter, not only does this card make me smile but it also makes me feel relaxed and WARM :-)
