The Signature Sketch

Morning LIMettes.. So It's time for another challenge at Less Is More and this week it is Sketch or Recipe week.  I've done a little sketch for you.. many LIMettes will recognise this layout as I use it a lot!!  So here is


It's simplicity itself, so to add a little constraint, we ask that the card stays in this orientation i.e. that the band remains in the horizontal plane, in the lower part of the card and that it takes up no more than 1/3rd of the height of the card base.

Here are my creations for this week....

My first card very much cases a technique that LIMette Vicky Hayes uses a lot... I have been meaning to try it for a while, but these Stampin Up stamps are perfect for it.  

Card Recipe
Stamps: Sale-A-Bration 2013
Ribbon: Rich Razzleberry
Inks: Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive
All from Stampin Up

And my second card... a little more fiddly as I have put little hearts in the band.... I love the efffect but it took a while to make and I'm not happy with the photos :-( 

Card Recipe:
Punches: Stampin Up & Martha Stewart
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat

Right, so since it put down 6 inches of snow last night my crafty day with Lizy is postponed ....

You're Just My Type

Morning... wow I am doing well this week.. I'm trying to perfect the art of speedy crafting so instead of starting to make a card without getting the supplies out, I'm preparing myself, getting everything I think I need out or printed and then starting to make the card... and it seems to be working and I even managed to colour a few images in to match the papers too...

This is my little card today, using an image I found whilst searching for something else!!

Card Recipe:
Image & DPs: Pink Petticoat

I'll hopefully get some more crafting done tonight, It's really nice being able to do stuff just to show you instead of for challenges or DT work !!


P.S I'm setting up Pink Petticoat Anonymous if anyone else feels they need to join... I am addicted to it!!
