The challenge at Less is More this week is to use some Designer Paper in a Clean and Simple way! When I decided that my style in cardmaking was decidedly CAS, I was left with a variety of stack of Designer Paper which tend to get forgotten. The sort I prefer to use, if at all is probably the sort of monochrome design that Pink Petticoat among other companies, produces.
Here I have just used a strip in a band across the card with a SU bird stamped and cut out. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
Here I have used Designer paper for paper piecing, matting and for the sentiment (cut with my Silhouette).
I stamped on some DP here, both for the main image and the leaves.
Stamps are from JOFY.
This is nothing to do with the Less is More challenge, but I thought I would share it with you. I bought this fab delicate trees stamp at the NEC. It's from Poppy Stamps and has a matching die, which I obviously didn't use on this occasion. With a little masking and sponging my wintry scene emerged!
I was quite pleased with it... I've made a few cards with this technique! I used Distress inks in Stormy Sky, Weathered Wood and Iced Spruce and added a little Glamour Dust for a touch of sparkle!
The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.
Have a great weekend!
