Less is More wk19 - one layer, in the frame

It's one layer week again at Less is More, with an 'in the frame' theme - Chrissie and Mandi would like to see some sort of frame on our cards.  I made 5 LIM cards today, but only 2 of them are fit to be seen lol... the others will either end up in the bin or I'll chop them up and see if I can make them into something else!


For my green card I've used a Little Claire flower stamp and a Penny Black sentiment.  I stuck a post it note in the centre and then 'randomly' stamped the flower in memento 'pear tart' all around the card.  I then inked around the post it note using 'shabby shutters' distress ink, lifted off the post it note and stamped the sentiment in the centre, using 'bamboo' memento.  The card base is ivory linen from Papermill Direct.


For my pink card I've used the Hero Arts 'wildflower garden' stamp and a Stampin Up frame and sentiment - from the set I won at a demo on Saturday!  I stamped the frame first, then masked the frame off and stamped the flower stamp over the top.  I didn't think it looked quite right with the flowers stamped once, so I stamped it again at either side, but only using the top part of the stamp.  Then added the sentiment, a little bit of glamour dust on some of the flowers, and a few pearls.

I'm also entering my cards for the 'single layer' challenge at Paper Pretties.

  42. 2 amazing cards. Thought you had cheated on the first one, and popped the centre up. The inked edge really gives it that 3D look.
    Love the pink one too - really like the way the frame is nestled inbetween the flowers.
