Less is More - use 3 stamps

Hello :o)

Just a quick post with a last minute entry for Less is More... their challenge this week is 'use 3 stamps', which proved almost impossible for me!  My poor crafty brain just doesn't work that way... I've never been able to do challenges that ask for a certain number of something.

I've faffed around all day, and come up with two cards that aren't really doing anything for me, but I'll post them anyway!


Items Used
Stamps - Clearly Besotted
MFT Die-namics - Stitched Square Frames
MFT Die-namics Blueprints 14
Memento Inks - Pear Tart, Rose Bud, Tuxedo Black
Pearls & flower sequins from my stash


Items Used
Flower stamp - Stampin' Up
MFT background stamp - Romantic Script
MFT Die-namics Blueprints 14
Sentiment stamp - Clearly Besotted
Doodlebug enamel dot
Stampin' Up ink pad - Soft Sky
(plus a lot of faffing around with ink daubers & post it notes...)

I finished another one, but that's even more blah than these, might end up in the bin lol.

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)
