Less is More

Hello,
I sure do hope this post publishes today! lol! OMG how bad was the weather yesterday?? It never stopped raining here all day and from what I have seen I think it was like that across most of the country, those poor I.O.W festival goers...
Anyway, talking of the Island, I am entering in Mandi (who lives on the I.O.W ;-)) and Chrissie's Less is More challenge and this week it is One Layer plus a border.
 I even managed to pay enough attention and fulfil all the criteria too! get me! he he he!
So, I have been playing with Engraved Greetings again, this stamp set is such a brilliant bargain at just £12.95 for this one and a Happy Birthday one too, more on that tomorrow ;-)
This stamp set is great for both boys and girls and just so elegant. It is tucked away on page 86 if you fancy a look the link is under Catalogues and Ordering across the top of this blog.
O.K. first card is a 6"x6" one, the stamp was inked using my Markers to get the mixed colour look in Concord Crush, Melon Mambo with just a touch of Pear Pizzazz and not forgetting the couple of Basic Rhinestones I used to bling it up a little ;-)
inside I made the border a little wider and stamped the image without re-inking it for a washed out look to compliment (I hope) the outside,
and this second one is just under 4" square, I think I prefer this one,
no second stamping inside due to the small size but I did add some doodling to finish and not forgetting the bling on here too :-)
Well, that's todays cards for you, I have plenty of crafting to do today now I have finished the ton of washing Josh brought home with him yesterday!
Thanks for stopping by today,
Stampin' Hugs,

  9. like the coloured sentiment....you could have left the frames off on both cards as the wording is framed....but thats only my little opinion/thought.
