Loving the linen card.............(& Less is More)

Just a quick post today - trying to get ahead with Snoflake's challenge over on Docrafts. I used my lovely linen card for this one - great when there is a lot of 'white space'. The stamps are from Penny Black - the trees are paper-pieced with green card. Sentiment from Craftwork cards with stamped hanging stars underneath.
Thanks for looking!
PS Have just decided to enter it as a second card in the 'Less is More' challenge!

Less is More - week 9

The challenge this week at 'Less is More' is a 'Touch of Red' - this means only one thing to me ................... Santa Claus!!!!!
I've used an Inkadinkadoo Santa stamp, Martha Stewart snowflake punch and Paula Pascual stamped greeting. Hope it fits the challenge!


Stampin' Up! Class

Yesterday my friend and I went to a Stampin' Up! class - really enjoyed ourselves and it was great to meet other crafters. We worked on 4 projects - 3 cards and a hexagonal box. We learnt some new techniques which was great. This is the first project - the hexagonal box.
Wish I'd put the band around the box in the middle but ........... you learn from your mistakes!!
The flower on top had a twisted ribbon middle - I need more practice on that!
We then worked on 3 cards - which could be adapted for any occasion really.
 For this one we made the little flowers from rolled up paper - surprisingly easy.
This one incorporated one of the lovely new embossing folders from SU. 
Loved the little butterfly stamps - so versatile.

Well that's me for another post - back soon.

Mother's Day Card

I liked the sketch for the Less is More challenge that I used it again (with a little bit of change) to make a Mother's Day Card. The greeting is from Paula Pascual's 'Filled with Flowers'. Can't remember where I bought the flowers - I coloured a couple of them with Promarkers.
Off to my first Stamping Up class tomorrow so will be back with my efforts tomorrow night or Sunday.
