Familiar territory

After my dabble into the vintage quarter I am back on more familiar ground with my card for this weeks Less Is More Challenge – Flowers.   For this one I have combined stamps and dies but used the die to emboss rather than cut.


Materials used:
Tonic Fuchsia Window die and matching stamps
greeting stamp – unknown origin
white and purple card
Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
Spectrum Noir pens

I used the die to emboss the white card then stamped the fuchsia and ivy onto the embossed parts. I stamped the greeting into the middle of the panel. Having coloured the fuchsia and ivy I trimmed the white card down to make the topper for my card. I mounted this onto a card blank make from the purple card.

I am off now to Less is More to see what everyone else has been upto!

Thanks for visiting.  Take care.



About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
