Less Is More 51

Thank you for all your comments last week. I wanted to comment on everyone's entries but Blogger is freezing some comment sections and not letting me see some blogs at all! Hopefully I will do better this week. Cut it out was the theme this week at Less Is More - we had to include an aperture on the card. I couldn't have made this card without my stamp positioner. If you don't have one, buy or make one as it opens up a world of possibilities. Placement is key in a card like this.  I used a B Line Design stamp that I got as a gift on the LB Crafts stall at an exhibition. It's a small stamp that's been made into a necklace with beads and string. I stamped it and the text (by Inkadinkado) with Impress peony purple. The oval and the rectangle were both done with punches. I felt the bright colour needed some contrast to tone it down a bit so I went for this sagey green ribbon and bundled sage DI. The stamp in the 4 corners is another B Line Design one that matches the lady's skirt. It's actually a square but with the stamp positioner and a bit of scrap paper I managed to get it exactly where I wanted it. Hope you like it.


  1. Lovely card like the colour combo purple and green


  2. I agree with you about a stamp positioner... I wouldn't be without my few bits of Lego and acetate sheets.
    I love that sentiment you used!
    Thanks so much
