Tag Archives: Less is More

A little birdie told me…

The latest challenge at Less is More, was to make a Christmas card with a bird.
I’m not 100% sure if the look of my card qualifies as “less”, but the work on it definitely does. A piece of designer paper, a Christmas sticker and a piece of ribbon – voilà!


Designer paper – My Mind’s Eye
God Jul sticker – Slöjd-Detaljer (from last year, no longer available)

One word

Dang! I made a card for a challenge in the Less is More blog earlier this week. Didn’t get to take a pic of it until today though. I thought today was the last day to participate, but obviously the challenge is now closed. Oh well, I don’t know if my card really was a “less is more” card anyway.

However, the challenge was to use only one word as sentiment on the card front. I wrote Kram, which is the Swedish word for Hug, with Thickers Tiara letters. Background paper is a piece from DCWV The Street Lace stack. Then a black ribbon, and using the Fiskars Sunburts border punch on the black cardstock and – voilà!


Two very simple cards

I’ve made quite a few cards the last couple of days. Suddenly my mind was all blank, my ideas were poof gone! And I wanted to participate in a few more challenges… So I decided to simply let the papers do the talking. I’ve used a paper from Reprint om both cards. Besides the card bases and the designer paper – a  star on one card and a cord on the other card. That’s it. Nothing else. Boring? Maybe. 😉 They do look a bit better IRL though, colors turned out very weird in the photos.

The first card is for Less is More week 33 – “Anything CAS goes”. Btw Julkram means “Christmas hugs”.
The second card is for CAS-ual Fridays CFC20 – Mini cards. My card is slightly smaller than 4″x4″.

Two challenge cards

Yay, I made TWO cards tonight after work. 😀

First is a card for Clean & Simple Stampings sketch #155. The sketch should be combined with any past ColourQ challenge. I chose their color combo #41 for my card.

Second is a card made for Less is More, where challenge #31 is to make a card with something that has a metallic finish. I went ALL metallic, with golden cardstock, golden selfadhesive swirly ribbon and the sentiment embossed in gold.

Less is More – Feeling Fruity

My first participation in any of Less is More‘s challenges, and the theme of the week is to make a card with fruits or in fruity colors. I realized I don’t have ANY fruit stamps or embellishments. I did remember I saw a strawberry postcard the other day when I organized some of my crafting space. So, I used a piece of that postcard for my card. 😀

The rubber stamp is from Skapa Hobby (designed by me), and in English it means “Have a nice summer”. I know the summer is almost over, but I thought it suited the strawberries… I added small rhinestones to the little flower on the stamp image.
