I was able to make a card today. Yeah! And it's for the Less is More Challenge this week....
This week we have a really easy recipe which is simply
As long as your design is Clean and Simple, has some white space (or its equivalent) and polka dots in evidence somewhere, it will be perfect for this challenge.
I see that the greenery is a little funky in the picture. I used the tip of the fir tree in the Lovely as a Tree set stamping first in Lucky Limeade and overstamping in Old Olive. IRL it doesn't have that yellow cast.
I was feeling sparkly, after all I got time in the studio, so I used some Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the boughs and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds. And I used some Glimmer Paper for the toe, heel & cuff on the stocking. I even added a few rhinestones to the sentiment. This is really sparkly for me and I love it.
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Stitched Stockings, Bells and Boughs
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Old Olive, Real Red, SU Markers (Real Red, Lucky Limeade)
Paper: Whisper White, Silver Glimmer PaperOther: Stocking Builder Punch, Basic Rhinestones, Dazzling Diamonds, Silver Elastic Cord
I dropped 2 inkpads today. The big ones. On this card. What a mess. The first time was on the front, hence the greenery all the way across. Then, after I was all finished, I dropped another on the back. I think this card will get a little bigger with some Lucky Limeade behind it. It's definitely not my Lucky color!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope I get to stamp something else for you soon.
