Gorjuss!

The Less is More challenge this week is to use more than one stamp.  I think this card fits the bill, using four stamps.

Materials used:
Gorguss girl with border and frame stamps
Memento Tuxedo Black and Rose Bud ink pads
Spectrum Noir pens
Neenah card
Centura Pearl card
Papermania orange spotty paper
Pale green card
A5 white card blank
Pink heart shaped gem
Peel off greeting

Method:
I stamped the girl onto the Neenah card and coloured her with the pens then cut her out. Using the Rose Bud ink I stamped the frame onto Centura Pearl card and the ribbon onto paper. I cut the stamped frame to form the base for the topper, put a slit in each side of the frame at about the half way mark and threaded through a strip of the stamped paper. This was then matted onto the orange paper and the green card before sticking to the card blank. I stuck the girl onto the front using Pinflair gel glue. Finally I made a paper bow out of another strip of stamped paper, added the gem and the peel off greeting and sticking at the bottom of the card.

I cannot get the colours on the photo right, I think it is the glare from the Centura Pearl card that is  effecting it.

Thanks for dropping in.  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.

    Adorable image and card! Would be good to see it with a bit more ‘white space’ for our challenge, do check out the guidelines if you’re not sure 🙂

    This is a cute image, but as Anne has already mentioned at Less is More we do like to see white space in evidence and minimal layering!
    DO join us again!
    Thanks so much
