Simply Less is More # 249

Hello There !

Horrible, miserable weather here again, I`ve forgotten what the sunshine looks like. Perfect excuse for crafting though.

It`s colour week at Simply Less is More and this time we are asked to create a clean and simple card using the colours of FIRE.
I`ve been making batches of Christmas cards this week so these colours threw me a bit. However, seeing as they are my favourite colours it didn`t take too long to change tack.

 Apologies for the fuzzy picture, I would have retaken it but the light is terrible now.
I started by inking up a rectangle of white card with various inks.
I then cut out the ` Celebrate` die , by Die-versions once in white card and again in gold mirror card and adhered them together. ( I use double sided tape on the back of the top die cut when cutting )
The stars are by Sizzix and cut out of gold mirror card and gold glitter card .

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

Simply Less is More # 248

Hello there !
First of all I would like to say how chuffed I was to be showcased for my masculine card at Simply Less is More 
It made my day, thank you girls x
This weeks challenge is Paper Piecing. Not my favourite technique I must say, far too fiddly for me but I`ve had a go.

This little santa was one of the first stamps I bought almost 10 years ago. It`s a Creative Expressions stamp and is really easy to piece.
I`ve used some red DP with tiny white dots on, I think it`s a Papermania paper but I`m not sure.
I`ve finished him off with some white glitter on his hat, beard and coat.
The sentiment is from a Penny Black set.

This one uses an Anita`s stamp. Another easy to piece one, pieced with some green spotty DP from Papermania. The red ornaments are the same DP as santa`s suit above finished with a touch of red glitter
Sentiment is by Crafters Companion
