Less is More - Week 164 - use three of something

 This is my last week of guesting and commenting at Less is More and this week we have a brilliant theme - which is to use three of something, but also to comment on at least three fellow participant's blogs.  It's maybe a bit of a gardening thing, but I do love using things in threes and I found it hard to narrow my ideas down into - you've guessed it - three cards!  LIM gives a lot of emphasis to supporting those who join in and commenting is a big part of this, please don't feel you need to stop at three comments :)

First one up uses Clearly Besotted stamps and dies, stamped in grey onto scraps of Bazzil bling.  Feathers were stuck down with Pinflair and some raffia tied around them when this was dry.

 Next card uses three Spellbinders circles to cut from the top layer, sentiment is Stampin' Up.  I added 3 pearls as I felt it looked a bit sparse...

Third card uses the trimmings from beside my guillotine!  I tried this first with washi tape but found it too flexible and hard to keep straight. 

Looking forward to more amazing cards to enjoy from all the lovely LIMettes out there - you won't forget the commenting bit will you?

Wow Anne - what a whole lot of inspiration all in one post! All the cards are gorgeous but I'm particularly taken with the clever interwoven card stock trimmings one. Vicky x

Wow 3 cards, very cool way to really get into this challenge. Have to say the third card is just stunning, so graphic but with the most fab, bold and subtle colours x

Three cards, very different. Love the sentiment on the feathers card and what a super use of your trimmings for the last card. x

I like the feathers card design, the polka dots is a intersting and quick design too, the plaid looks quick and easy too and end result is wonderful. Thanks for sharing!

Love all of your cards this week Ann, but especially the one with the woven pieces - really effective and a great way to use up offcuts.
