Less is More - week 33 - Anything goes for 1000 entries!



This week is 'Anything goes' over at Less is Morethe wonderful challenge blog for CAS type cards.  Chrissie and Mandi have this amazing idea of achieving over 1000 entries this week so let's see what we can do, Limettes!
As I've said before, stamping isn't really my 'thing' but ............... these are CHALLENGES so I decided I should bite the bullet and go for it. I definitely need more practice but I'm fairly happy with this one.
2 freebie stamps that came with a magazine earlier this year and I coloured them with Promarkers. Then I did partial cutting with an oval Nestie and mounted on the scalloped nestie in a matching card to highlight one of the colours.
I think I should send this to my lovely daughter who could shop for England! A day in Birmingham shopping with her and I need to lie down for at least 2 days.





Ok so now I'm on a roll with this stamping business! Another freebie stamp and this time it's cupcakes.

After colouring in, again with Promarkers,  I cut this into a triangle/pyramid shape and then tinted the edges with a silver ink pad just to define it. The sentiment was stamped and embossed.
