Less is More Challenge and this week our theme is tags. My first card is based around something I love - coffee! I found some very cute free Christmas tags on Pinterest by SimplyKellyDesigns , resized and came up with my takeaway cup from a well known chain :). The computer generated sentiment uses Stencil font and I overstamped a coffee ring. No idea who made the tiny heart stamp I added, I found it on the floor (oops!).
Have fun making your clean and simple tags, I can't wait to see them!

Less is More is Up, up and away and my first card contains Many Clouds. In case you didn't know, I live in Lambourn and we are so proud to have the winner of the Grand National trained here, by Oliver Sherwood. I made this card for Oliver and Tarnya, using a Memory Box stencil and some Distress Inks. The clouds were cut with my Silhouette and the. gold stars with a punch. In case you think the clouds don't really work for our theme I'd like to point out that Many Clouds has to jump up, up and away to negotiate the course! Well done to Oliver and all the team at Rhonehurst.
My second card combines a Unity panda stamp with an SU balloon and its sentiment. The panda is embossed to give him lots of contrast. I've added some bling with gold embossing, mat and sequins.

Less is More this week - Splatters. My first card uses one of the Clarity Stamps Wee Folk. I've drawn in a groundline and my splatters are a Visible Image dotty stamp using Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I've a great sentiment that says 'Under the weather?' but I am leaving the card without sentiment until I decide who to send it to!

Less is More our challenge is to make a predominantly black card. I will admit I found this quite a challenge, my first card uses one of my favourite types of stamp, trees. This particular bit of forest is a Unity stamp and I've white embossed it onto black. There's a very thin red mat and I've added a few tiny Memory Box birds to match it, as well as some b&w ribbon.
