Dare to be different

Here’s a clean and simple 4×4 card I’d like to share with you:

 

It’s my entry for the following challenges:

This was also supposed to be my entry for the Stampotique Designers ‘One layer’ challenge , but I’m afraid I missed the deadline. 😦

Stamps used

  • 3 in a round by Stampotique
  • party hat by Scrolls Work
  • sentiment by Stampinback

 

3 flowers and fairy silhouettes

The Less is more challenge focuses on 1 layer cards featuring ‘3 of something’ and the Cheerful Stamp Pad wants to see silhouettes. Here’s a fairy silhouette card featuring 3 flowers and 3 colours of Distress ink (Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Broken China):

 

I decided to create a matching envelope:

Thanks for looking!

Stamps used

  • Flowers, fairies: Lavinia
  • Sentiment: Quietfire

Card inspired by the Less Is More header

Hurray, there were 5 Saturdays in June and so there’s an extra week in which the Less is More challenge is sponsored by Stampotique!  The challenge this week: take the Less is more header as your inspiration. Here’s my take on the theme:

As you can see, I went with the colours black, white and gold, flourishes, musical notes and a script font for the sentiment.

Stamps used

  • Musical notes: All night media
  • Flourishes: Crafty Individuals
  • Sentiment: Tim Holtz

Twice CAS Stampotique

Less is more wants to see clean and simple cards featuring some paper piecing and this is the last week that they are sponsored by Stampotique, so here’s my card:

I used the paper piecing technique both for the boy’s outfit and for the presents he carries. I made him carry two presents, for I also wanted to enter this card into the current Stampotique’s Designers challenge asking us to stamp the same image twice, but then I remembered that this challenge doesn’t allow any non-Stampotique stamps, so I created another card that fits both challenges:

Again a fairly clean and simple card featuring some paper piecing, this time combined with some acrylic bloc stamping and a computer generated sentiment.

Stamps used

  • Boy & presents: Stampotique
  • Scratches: Tim Holtz
  • Happy Birthday: Fiskars
